* In ''Albert Adds Up!'', a book from the ''Literature/MouseMath'' series, Albert really wants to read the latest book a in a series called [[ShowWithinAShow ''Captain Slime'']]. His big sister Wanda has checked it out from the library and he really wants to read it first and asks her if he can. Most of the remainder of the book is him offering her various stuff in exchange for the privilege before she's finally able to get out that she had checked the book out for him in the first place. After that, he says that he no longer wants to read it first... because he thinks they should read it together.

** This happens to Daniel a few times when he underestimates the General's GenreSavvy-ness. In another episode, he's ready to go in with rhetorical guns ablazin' to convince Hammond to act on a tip he got from a [[DreamingOfThingsToCome Prophetic Dream]], when the General agrees instantly on the basis that that's hardly the weirdest thing he's heard while in command of the SGC.

* In the final moments of ''{{Popular}}'', we see Brooke storming out of a restaurant with Sam, saying "This isn't what I wanted", concerning an unseen-by-viewers decision by Harrison over who he's going to take to the prom. This prompted viewers to assume that he had picked Sam. Even the TelevisionWithoutPity [[http://www.televisionwithoutpity.com/show/popular/promblems.php?page=12 recap]] said as much, although it also said that others argue that it could have been the other way. Ryan Murphy [[WordOfGod later revealed]] that this was (would have been?) the case.

* A bug caused this in ''VideoGame/Borderlands2'' for a while. Early in the game, Claptrap attempts to open a door to somewhere at least somewhat warm and sheltered, and fails, leading to a brief monologue about how much it'll hurt when bullymongs take everyone apart. Occasionally, it was known to open just fine, at which point Claptrap would launch into his we're-all-going-to-die monologue anyway.

** Our heroes are [[HilaritySues sued]] after accidentally destroying a Gate holding back the SealedEvilInACan. Fortunately, they manage to get a "not guilty" verdict, though it's clear [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0284.html they weren't expecting it]]. Amusingly, while the rest of the cast does manage to take "yes" for an answer once they get over the DoubleTake, Haley Starshine, temporarily cursed to be TheUnintelligible, launches into a detailed rant about why they should have been found guilty under any sane legal code.

* Done surprisingly seriously in ''Series/PowerRangersSPD'' when Emperor Grumm put Piggy in a WithUsOrAgainstUs situation by forcing him to go into a pit of suffering for a day before giving his decision. Piggy tried to avoid it by immediately declaring he sided with Grumm, but Grumm ''still'' demanded he go into the pit under threat of being disintegrated.
