* An ''Franchise/ArchieComics'' story has Betty take a nap in a pickup truck after a day of chores. When she wakes up, she finds herself at the mall, still in her ragged work clothes. She feels embarrassed at her friends seeing her in this condition, but then she decides that she's probably dreaming. She proceeds to make herself look even more unsightly, and become a nuisance until security kicks her out. Betty then finds herself walking home in RealTime,[[note]]though the reader only sees one panel of her walking while exclaiming, "This is a long dream!"[[/note]] and notices the truck absent from her family's driveway upon her return. She decides to pinch herself to see if she's really dreaming, but finds out otherwise.

* In the first episode after ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible'' was {{Uncanceled}}, a very confused Ron calls Kim to confirm that their RelationshipUpgrade was not a dream, and continues to ask about various other things (all of which, other than the RelationshipUpgrade, actually ''were'' dreams.)
