After escaping, they vowed not to get involved with an adventurous woman again, only to encounter the archaeologist. This time, they're sticking to it.

** In "Can an Evil Genius Crash on Your Couch for a Few Days?" Sonic [[AdoptedToTheHouse lets Dr. Eggman stay at his house for a few days while the latter's base is under renovation]]. It later turns out this was a ruse so Eggman could exhaust Sonic and his friends so they'd be too tired to stop his Obliteratorbot. The Obliteratorbot malfunctons and attacks Eggman's base, forcing Eggman to [[EnemyMine team up with Sonic and his friends to stop it]]. At the end of the episode, when Eggman's base is destroyed for real, Sonic just decides to drop Eggman off at his destroyed base.

* One reason credited for President UsefulNotes/JohnFKennedy being so determined and able to prevent a nuclear war during the Cuban Missile Crisis was that he recently read the BarbaraTuchman history book, ''The Guns of August'', which followed the series of military and diplomatic blunders that set off WorldWarOne and he was determined not repeat them and set off WorldWarThree.

* Played with in a ''ComicBook/TheSmurfs'' comic: one of the Smurfs dreams of travelling to outer space in a spaceship he builds. Not wanting to disappoint him, Papa Smurf concocts a convoluted plan to drug him and make him thinks he's travelled to another planet populated by Smurflike humanoids called Swoofs. So convoluted, in fact, that after Astrosmurf "returns" (after [[SlippingAMickey drinking a similarly drugged beverage]] given to him by the Swoofs), another Smurf contemplates on doing the same thing, only to be overridden by the rest of the village, who practically yell the trope name at him. They do go through it again, though in the AnimatedAdaptation episode "Dreamy's Pen Pals".
