* ''TheDukesOfHazzard'': The seventh-season premiere of the series saw the Dukes and Cooter say, "Happy Birthday, General Lee." The episode establishes several key things that became part of the official series' bible. Set in 1976 (more than two years before the series' premiere), Bo and Luke, freshly placed on probation for illegal transportation of alcohol, purchase a banged-up Dodge Charger to compete in one of Boss Hogg's races; Daisy is a recent high school graduate who gets a job at Hogg's Boar's Nest. The General Lee, in its previous life, had been owned by a jewel thief and his girlfriend, who after robbing a jewelry store stash the booty in the dashboard, but then crash the car. Since the car's owner was in jail and forfeited it, Bo and Luke are able to purchase the car, soup it up and use it to foil every one of Boss' countless schemes.

* ''Series/KamenRiderDouble'' has the "[[GratuitousEnglish Begins Night]]", the case in which Shotaro [[MyGreatestFailure accidentally caused the death of his mentor]], met his future partner Philip, and became Kamen Rider Double for the first time; it also qualifies for Philip because it marks the point where he starts taking responsibility for helping make [[AppliedPhlebotinum Gaia]] [[TransformationTrinket Memories]]. They actually use the term as a shorthand for this trope later on; when they meet [[SixthRanger Ryu Terui]], Philip comments that the murder of his family was his own personal Begins Night.

Thus, the future KingArthur is born, and a grief/guilt-stricken Uther imposes a ban upon all magic in the realm, thus setting up the conflict for the entirety of the show: that Merlin cannot reveal his magic to anyone.
