* ''Literature/SpaceCadet''. One of the cadets objects to being pulled up over his lack of table manners, and when told to eat his pie with a fork instead of his hands, insists on getting the order in writing as per regulations. The senior cadet does so without complaint, then gives him another written order telling him to report to his commanding officer. He gets a roasting, and an explanation of [[OfficerAndAGentleman why such petty matters are necessary]], and an order to write out two thousand times, "I will eat my pie with my fork."

* The poster sent to fans who joined the fan club for the ''Series/ImaginationMovers'' depicted the four movers, Rich, Scott, Dave and Smitty against a blackboard on which they had written several times "I will think big! I will reach high! I will work hard! I will have fun!", which was essentially a variation of their catchphrase, "Reach high, think big, work hard, have fun."

** After becoming a prefect, Ron fantasizes about catching Gregory Goyle (one of Malfoy's mate) for something, so that he can make him write lines, which he figures would kill him since he's so stupid. He'd have him write "I must not look like a baboon's backside."

* ''Film/MontyPythonsLifeOfBrian'' features a scene where Brian is caught by a Roman centurion while he's writing ROMANES EUNT DOMUS on the wall of the amphitheatre. The centurion couldn't care less what the actual message is, he's just pissed at Brian's poor Latin grammar ("The people called Romanes, they go to the house?") and promptly delivers a Latin lesson. Brian is [[DoWrongRight then told to write the message in proper Latin (ROMANI ITE DOMUM, "Romans, go home!") 100 times on the wall before sunrise.]]
** He completes it barely in time, with a worn-out brush and empty paint tin. The guards that have stayed behind to be sure that Brian completes his task then leave, and the second they disappear behind the corner, another Roman patrol shows up - and these guards actually notice what he has written, whereupon the chase begins...

* [[http://www.lab6.com/old/school/yearbook/lynz.html Adam Clarkson]] was told to write a hundred lines. If he didn't finish by the end of the day, that number would double. After over half a year, it had reached 10^19 lines, and he was told that if he didn't finish them that day, it would be squared. That was in 1998. It's now much, much more than a googolplex.
