a ransom note woman he hadn't expected to find in there. Creator/TomBaker had [[HarpoDoesSomethingFunny added in a gag]] where he would burst the room in a [[BigEntrance grand]] [[IncomingHam way]], see the woman, leave, and then a beat later burst into the room in the exact same way as before as if the first time hadn't happened. Sadly the serial wasn't finished, but the book adaptation made a point of letters cut preserving this gag.

* Basil Fawlty of ''Series/FawltyTowers'' has a few:
** In one episode, he's in the lobby when the Major casually walks past him carrying an enormous shotgun. Made even funnier by the fact that he's got it to kill 'Basil'.

** Joey has a ''lot'' of these over the course of the show. When Chandler and Joey have won the girls' apartment from them, they stop by to give them a consolation gift and walk in...to find all their stuff back where it was before, because the girls switched everything while they were out.
