** Happens twice in ''Film/StarTrekBeyond''. First, the film begins a few days before Kirk's birthday, and [=McCoy=] pours himself and Kirk shots, and a third, representing Kirk's lost father who was killed saving him as he was born. They tap their shot glasses to the extra glass, then to each others'. Then, towards the end, at his surprise birthday party, Kirk offers the toast, "To [[spoiler:the ''Enterprise'']]. And to absent friends."]]

* Subverted in ''Film/TheRockyHorrorPictureShow''. Frank proposes a toast "to absent friends." Unbeknownst to everyone but Frank (and possibly Riff-Raff and Magenta), they're dining on Eddie, and the rest of the victims are right under the table they're dining on. The line was later used in the booklet included with the 25th Anniversary DVD edition as a tribute to actor Charles Gray (The Criminologist), the only non-surviving cast member at the time of that release.

* In one episode of ''Series/{{MASH}}'', Colonel Potter acts oddly.

** There's a great one in the season two episode "Scar," where Starbuck tries to toast all the deceased pilots by name/callsign. This one is especially moving given that she had earlier claimed that she didn't remember any of their names and didn't care to because they were dead and gone so who cares…
