* One episode of ''{{Miranda}}'' featured both a character called Susan Perb ([[DontExplainTheJoke Sue Perb = superb]]) ''and'' a character called Dick Twist ([[AccidentalInnuendo which needs no explanation]]). When Miranda's new work colleagues don't find the former funny, it's the final straw and she quits the job; the latter becomes a RunningGag throughout the episode.

* In ''Series/OnlyFoolsAndHorses'', A sarcastic suggestion by Rodney during the christening of Del Boy and Raquel's son backfires when the two mistake the mock suggestion of "''[[film/TheOmen Damien]]''" for something serious, as Rodney was convinced the baby was the anti-Christ.
