'''Harry:''' No, we both have eaten, already, and to be frank, after that killing curse, I feel dead on my feet.\\
'''Tonks:''' That's a galleon for the bad pun jar, Mister Potter.

* In the Australian variety show ''Series/{{Rove}}'' the host, Rove [=McManus=], implemented the "Creator/HarrisonFord Commemorative Swear Jar" in remembrance of an interview with the actor that was mildly profane. Rove himself added fifty dollars after swearing in front of then-twelve year old Freddie Highmore. He later raided this same fifty dollars to get a lap dance from Music/MeatLoaf.

* When Tommy was briefly transferred to a Long Island (i.e. much slower paced than Brooklyn) fire department in ''Series/RescueMe'', his abrasive "city" demeanor clashed with the suburban style of his new crew. The chief actually told him at one point that Tommy had, in the brief time he'd been there, put so much money in the swear jar that the firehouse was about to buy a new HDTV for the rec room (at the time, big-screen HDTV's were still going for about $2000 USD).

* One ''ComicStrip/PearlsBeforeSwine'' is about swear jars. Rat imagines that if he used them, he would quickly pay for his (hypothetical) son's college tuition.

* ''Literature/TheSalvationWar'' has a variation on this: Any time one of the researchers looking for a gateway to Heaven wishes aloud for [[UsefulNotes/AlbertEinstein Einstein]] / [[UsefulNotes/RichardFeynman Feynman]]/insert-Nobel-Prize-winner-here to magically appear and help them solve a particular problem, they cough up a couple of bucks. Last Friday of the month, everyone goes out drinking with the cash. This being the Salvation War, having such people around eventually will be possible, although Norman notes that even then they'll start out knowing less about the newly discovered dimensional physics than the scientists they already have.
-->'''Norman:''' That was $20 he put in? He must've been wishing for a Nobel Prize winner. Those guys are expensive.
