* On ''The [[CelebrityEdition Celebrity]] [[Series/TheApprentice Apprentice]]'', one task had the teams put on a show at Medieval Times.

* In ''WesternAnimation/TwiceUponATime'', after [[BigBad Synonamess Botch]] [[LifesWorkRuined throws out Scuzzbopper's manuscript for "the great A-Murk-ian novel"]] and tells him to get back to work writing nightmare scripts, Scuzzbopper is found by our heroes hanging from a noose in the basement. Fortunately [[BungledSuicide he's still alive]], and dryly admits to Flora he might have taken Botch's criticism too harshly.

* Joey from the musical ''MeAndMyDick'' attempts to commit suicide after an embarrassing attempt to propose to the hot little Jewish girl Vanessa. He is about to go through with it when his friend walks in. This wouldn't be funny if Joey's Heart wasn't played by an actual person, but when Heart states in a quiet, devastated voice, "I'm going to squeeze my left carotid artery, Joey" it became hilarious.

She tries to help him recognize the warning signs of suicidal thoughts. As she's listing the warning signs, we see their robot vacuum (think Roomba) displaying these warning signs.
