** The Doctor only takes Adam Mitchell home after he royally screws up, and Adam says "Blimey. I thought you were gonna chuck me out of an airlock." Not that the TARDIS has one as it could generate an atmosphere in vacuum.
** Also, in the episode ''Midnight'', [[spoiler: after the Hostess realizes that Sky has been possessed by the unseen entity, she grabs her, opens the door and [[HeroicSacrifice let the truck's safety system throw them both into the vacuum]]. Note that the door was the one that leads to the cockpit (which has been torn apart from the rest of the truck earlier), hence the lack of airlock. The actual exit door (which has an airlock) is located at the back of the truck]].

vacuum - the Doctor and his companions are frequently shown looking out into space.

*** The worrying part is that she is trusting her life to the Doctor eventually finding her message - which he does, ''12,000 years later''. One of the nice things of the TimeyWimeyBall is that it is never too late for a retroactive BigDamnHeroes moment.

* In ''Webcomic/SchlockMercenary'', Petey dumps a bunch of {{Space Marine}}s out of an airlock that wasn't there until he boarded the ship. (He didn't just cut a hole; he "installed" a complete airlock.) But the marines are all wearing PoweredArmor, so they should be able to reach one of the other ships nearby.

It's also what LOTA threatens to do if the Toughs get too close to his memory banks (he's justified; he found out they had a backup plan to assassinate him just in case).

* A threat used repeatedly in LoisMcMasterBujold's Literature/VorkosiganSaga.
** In ''The Vor Game'', Oser orders Miles and Co. thrown out of an airlock to [[GenreSavvy eliminate them quickly]], rather than let Miles have time to take over as he had before. It didn't work.
** In ''Falling Free'', a character tries to commit suicide this way. Fortunately enough, her friend got there in time and jammed the airlock shut.
** At the end of ''Komarr'', Ekaterin and her aunt are being held hostage in an airlock, partly to enable this threat and partly so Ekaterin can't get out and wreck the hostage-takers' plans ''again''.

Except in this case, Jorge did it to ''save'' Six (who is wearing vacuum-sealed armor, after all).

* The player can toss just about anything out the airlock in the game ''{{Creatures}} 3'', from random trash you don't want lying around to living creatures. Sometimes the latter will accidentally throw ''itself'' out the airlock by crawling inside and pressing the button, thus proving that artificial life is ''not'' the same as artificial intelligence.
