* FunnyAneurysmMoment: The segment in ''It's Bad For Ya'' covering "Things We Say When People Die". When Carlin died only a few months later, this was not lost on his surviving family, with his daughter making references to it at his own funeral. That said, Carlin wanted them to laugh at his funeral, and laugh they did.
* HarsherInHindsight:
** His rant on 1999's ''You Are All Diseased'' about how pointless airport security was and how he didn't believe terrorists were out to hijack planes quickly became this only 2 years later when, in fact, terrorists DID hijack planes.
** His ''Fuck Lance Armstrong'' became this, or HilariousInHindsight when he was revealed to dabble with steroids. He also dismissed Tiger Woods harshly, and this was before Woods' infidelity and career crashed.
