* If asked to "repeat after me", the [[WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}} Warner siblings]] will take this advice to heart immediately, including repeating "repeat after me", which quickly devolves into this.

* One episode of ''WesternAnimation/BeavisAndButthead'' has Beavis deciding to copy Butt-head. Butt-head tries to get him to stop by doing various dangerous things, such as running out into traffic and harassing Todd. Of course, everything that happens to Beavis happens to Butt-head as well. At the end, Butt-head says that he's going to copy Beavis, and Beavis says he can't because he's already copying him. They just end up repeating "No you can't".
