* After trying to hide it for several decades, Prof. Hubert Farnsworth finally confesses to his employees in the ''{{WesternAnimation/Futurama}}'' episode "The Tip of the Zoidberg" that he long ago contracted an illness known as Tritonian Hypermalaria. Amy reveals that she recognizes the disease as "the one that causes fever, insanity, spasms, coma and death", with Farnsworth acting out each symptom as it's said (save for death, which instead a {{Beat}} followed by "Yes, you moron!")

SequentialSymptomSyndrome is a gag in which one character (usually a doctor, but not always) describes the effects of a disease or a poison while someone else (usually another character who happens to be close by) experiences those same symptoms in exactly the sequence the first character is describing. If reciting symptoms ''causes'' a person to experience them, it might be InducedHypochondria.

* A non-disease-related example. There's a song performed on ''HelloCheeky'' which kicks off with "''How'd ya like to squirt me with a soda seltzer, baby? How'd ya like to hit me with a pie?''" and gets gradually messier from there. It's performed twice -- the first time, it's just the song. The second time, the singer is attacked with what he sings about after every verse.
