** A nod to the football gag was used by ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' in one episode. In a cutaway gag, Lucy yanks the football away as Charlie Brown tries to kick it, causing Peter to appear and ''beat the crap out of Lucy'' for toying with Charlie Brown all this time and forces her to hold the football in place. Charlie Brown kicks it and cheers in glee, while Peter delivers a final kick for Lucy for not being a professional psychiatrist. TropesAreNotGood this time, though. The [[WouldHurtAChild idea of a child getting beat up by an adult]] is just uncomfortable to watch.

* After a long, long chain of failures, there are ''two'' occasions late in ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'' where the method home ''isn't'' irrevocably lost. In the first case, Jack is defeated by an invincible warrior guarding it... but the warrior spares his life and explicitly sees a FutureBadass Jack coming back to use the portal at some point ahead. In the second, the portal is destroyed (by Jack [[GrandTheftMe possessed by Aku's evil]]), but Jack is told that it will be rebuilt in due time, at which point he may use it. Sadly, neither one truly paid off because Cartoon Network let the show fall through.

** [[SingleWomanSeeksGoodMan Cute, ridiculously-nice Jeremy]] embodies this trope for [[ButtMonkey Candace]]; many episodes have Candace putting herself through all sorts of grief trying to bust her brothers and[[YankTheDogsChain coming within inches of doing so and failing]], only for Jeremy to show up in the last sixty seconds and somehow manage to make her day brighter. Later, they become an OfficialCouple.

** And a final bone throwing came in "Stench and Stenchability"(The next last episode ''ever'') where old crabcakes was given a love interest. And unlike Edna, no last second dumping and death from mating. And thanks to being born without a sense of smell, getting a nose transplant, and never knowing a good smell from bad, she even loves his stank.

** Waspinator was originally scheduled to die, but because he was popular, one of the writers convinced the executives to let him change it to him surviving the [[DroppedABridgeOnHim bridge-dropping]] that killed Scorponok and Terrorsaur by the ContrivedCoincidence of falling into a CR Chamber instead of a pit of lava.[[labelnote:note]] Well, ''[[NeverFoundTheBody maybe]]'' killed them. [[FixFic Other writers don't care for that bit and brought them back as Transmetals.]] [[ButtMonkey Who emerged from the lava with much difficulty, long after the Beast Wars were over, and were left stranded on prehistoric Earth by themselves.]][[/labelnote]]
