** In the finale, Malcolm is (naturally) the valedictorian of his class. He's introduced as "Malcolm--" (microphone feedback).
** It was initially planned as "Wilkerson" (Francis wears a badge with this name in the very first episode) but then they decided to get rid of it to leave the family's ethnic origin less clear. "Nolastname" appears on Francis's nametag in the last episode.

Added DiffLines:

* The ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' recurring sketch "What Up Wit' Dat?" always has three celebrity guests and the third is always [[Music/FleetwoodMac Lindsey Buckingham]] (played by Creator/BillHader). They never get to him because the host always breaks into song in the middle of interviewing the first guest. One sketch has the real Lindsey Buckingham show up alongside the Hader one and the host expresses surprise at there being two of them. Real Lindsey tries to explain why there's two of them, but the host ends the episode due to being out of time.

* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/GIJoeRenegades'', Snake Eyes is captured by Zartan and the Dreadnocks. While Snake's back is turned Zartan explains why he likes to take trophies and snatches the mask off. He and the Dreadnocks react with an unnerved expression, and then promptly replaces the mask.

* The Kalm flashback in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' ends this way. It's set up as [[TheReveal]], especially after what happened at Shinra tower, but the story ends on a cliffhanger right before Cloud attacks Sephiroth. This actually upsets Barret and Aerith with them demanding an actual ending, only for Cloud to say that he doesn't remember what happened afterward.

* ''Series/{{Tweenies}}'', "Being Really Old": The last lines of dialog are the titular characters (kids not more than 5 years old) asking one of their caretakers at playgroup (he's really old), and they go: "How old are you?" "Well, if you must know..." Cut to credits.

* "The Word of the Day," an episode of ''WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}}'' sees Angelica auditioning for a spot on "Miss Carol's Happy House," a kiddie show; the key part of the audition is stating the "Fun Phrase" of the week live on air. While snooping around backstage, she inadvertently eavesdrops on Miss Carol (who turns out to be a [[DepravedKidsShowHost nasty, cruel woman who hates the children she entertains]]) offering her opinion on what the Fun Phrase should be: "Miss Carol thinks her kids are all little--"...something obscene. [[ChildrenAreInnocent As a three-year-old, Angelica naturally thinks that this Miss Carol will be thrilled that she knows the "real" Fun Phrase,]] and starts repeating it. Every time the curse word in the statement comes up, something noisy occurs, including a cart of props going by, a construction worker doing repairs with a jackhammer, or Charlotte, Angelica's mother, screaming at the idea of her little girl swearing like a sailor. We never do find out what Miss Carol thinks of her kids.

** One story arc has Haley start speaking in a cypher as a result of trauma partly caused by her (at the time) unrequited love for Elan. A cleric tells her that her affliction will clear up when she is ready to reveal the secret, so in [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0309.html this strip]], she tries to tell Elan various secrets (but none of them is ''the'' secret that will cure her). Decrypted, her secrets are: "Elan, I'm in love with you. Completely in love. ? My dad is being held ransom by an evil dictator. ? I'm not really in the Thieves' Guild anymore. ? I cheat at solitaire. ? I have a tattoo you've never seen. ? I kissed a girl once. – OK, OK, more than once! ? Elan, it turns out i may not be exactly what you would call..."

* In ''VideoGame/HectorBadgeOfCarnage'''s first episode the main character poses as the middleman in a shady deal, where something called the "Thing" is exchanged for a suitcase of money. Hector doesn't know what the "Thing" is, and as he has to keep up his cover he can't ask the gang members he is conduction the deal with about the details, forcing him to improvise his way through the deal, eventually convincing the crooks that they can pick up the "Thing" at an appointed location later. In the second episode Hector's partner, Lambert, meets the actual middleman from the deal, but he is just as ambiguous about what the "Thing" is, so Lambert quickly gives up asking.
