* It seemed like almost every sitcom in the 70s-80s had to have one of these episodes where not only did the female cast outperform the guys at ''everything'', but turning every male in the show into a massive chauvinist whether they were in previous episodes or not.

* One episode of the NBC cop drama ''Life'' featured a suspect who had hidden important files on the hard drive of his XBox. The only way to access the files was to reach "Level 10" of ''PrinceOfPersiaTheSandsOfTime'' (the errors of this requirement earned it the top spot in [[http://www.cracked.com/article_19160_8-scenes-that-prove-hollywood-doesnt-get-technology.html this Cracked article]]). The leads get a stereotypical (male) nerd to play the game, but he proves unable to get past level two. At this point, a crowd has gathered to watch him try. Main character Charlie Crews suddenly notices a young woman among the group who is moving her fingers as if she is holding a controller. He walks over, brings her out of the crowd, and has the current player give her the controller; true to this trope, she manages to successfully complete the game and unlock the files.

* Invoked on an episode of ''Series/{{Scrubs}}''. Turk doesn't pick the only female in the group of candidates to be his assistant, which Elliot decides is sexist, so she gets Carla (Turk's wife) to [[LysistrataGambit deny him sex]] until he makes the girl his assistant instead.

** Subverted when it's revealed that Turk's decision had nothing to do with sexism, his choice was based on
the girl candidate's use of a three-colored pen to sign his assistant instead.name (stupid but not sexist). Once Turk's choice turns down the job (he never actually wanted the position, he just wanted to use his three-colored pen), Turk has no problem giving the position to the female intern. Turk also proves to Elliot that the female intern was purposefully invoking this trope to get Elliot to support her.

* ''Series/DegrassiJuniorHigh'', "The Great Race." The girls' swim team challenges the boys' soccer team [[http://www.agonybooth.com/agonizer/Degrassi/Junior_High/The_Great_Race.aspx to a swimming match]]. The boys secretly know the girls' team is better, but they think they can win -- because the girls' star swimmer is morbidly afraid of letting boys see her in a bathing suit and because they allow champion swimmer Snake to join the team, even though he's awful at soccer.

-->'''Knuckles:''' You know, Amy, any time someone calls attention to the breaking of gender roles, it ultimately undermines the concept of gender equality by implying that this is an exception and not the status quo.
