* Oh look, the [[{{Frasier}} Cranes]] are throwing a party. Cue ASimplePlan, with the occasional FawltyTowersPlot.
* For at least the first few seasons, if an attractive woman showed up on ''TwoAndAHalfMen'' for one or two episodes, if Charlie wasn't sleeping with her, Alan would be.
* A [[LargeHam big-name guest star]] is on one of the ''LawAndOrder'' shows (Particularly [[FanNickname The Mothership]] or [[Series/LawAndOrderSpecialVictimsUnit SVU]]). If this star isn't the victim or the defense lawyer, [[NarrowedItDownToTheGuyIRecognize (s)he's the perp]]. [[Series/LawAndOrderCriminalIntent Criminal Intent]] likes to disrupt the curve by offering up multiple guest stars.

Let's say Sgt. Bilko in ''ThePhilSilversShow'' has a GetRichQuickScheme. Even if we know it's not going to work, it doesn't count because [[OnceAnEpisode it's what always happens on the show]]. Now if he had a certain part of his plan that made it clear exactly how the plan would fail, that would be this trope.

Or if you're watching anything from JossWhedon and you just ''know'' that the characters will be throwing BuffySpeak left and right, the HappilyMarried couple will implode or that the most likeable MauveShirt in the bunch will be KilledOffForReal in a horrible fashion. Or playing a BioWare game and can spot your future party member three levels before they actually join, or things are going so well at Act 2 that you're just waiting on TheReveal to throw everything straight to hell? Nope, that's SignatureStyle.
