: A disclaimer telling the audience not to do try things in real life that they see in a show.
- Straight: Alice and Bob host a kids' science show. After an experiment involving explosives, they purposefully warn viewers not to try it out for themselves.
- Exaggerated: Alice and Bob give the same warning at end of every experiment, even the less dangerous ones.
- A written disclaimer appears in small print during the credits.
- The experiment can be tried at home, but only with an adult's supervision.
- Explosives are dangerous, and shouldn't be handled without the necessary training.
- Impressionable children might otherwise get the idea that it's okay to play with explosives.
- Inverted: After an experiment involving thermite, Bob irresponsibly tells viewers to try it at home.
- Subverted: After a tame experiment involving red cabbage dye, Alice says that it is safe to try at home.
- Double Subverted: She goes on to say that the next part however, isn't safe.
- "Don't try this experiment at home. It involves flammable metals, poisonous gases and red cabbage indicator."
- A ton of safety disclaimers are shown when Alice and Bob are building an extremely safe experiment, like a mini-volcano set.
- A "do not attempt" disclaimer appears over a scene of Alice and Bob suing the network.
- Zig Zagged: The original disclaimer was a joke. But when someone tries it at home, they start giving serious warnings. Later on they stop doing all but the safest experiments. But the safety warnings come back as a gag.
- Averted: Alice and Bob do all manner of dangerous experiments, and there is no disclaimer.
- The network has to give people the disclaimer, otherwise they could get sued if people hurt themselves.
- They did it to shut the Moral Guardians up.
- Lampshaded: "No really, don't."
- Invoked: Bob gives the warning because he always wanted to say that.
- Exploited: Alice gives a positive spin on the disclaimer to encourage kids to pursue careers in science, where they really do get to try out awesome experiments.
- Defied: Alice and Bob avoid doing anything so dangerous that it requires a warning.
- Discussed: Bob explains to the audience what would happen if they did try it at home.
- Conversed: "The thermite experiment looks awesome. Pity it's too dangerous?"
- Deconstructed: Viewers ignore the warnings, and try it at home anyway.
- Reconstructed: They warn viewers because someone actually did try it at home, and got hurt.
