Go To

Basic Trope: The story ends with the scene that started the entire story.

  • Straight: "The Adventures Of Bob" starts with Bob's house catching fire and ends with Bob's house catching fire.
  • Exaggerated: "The Adventures of Bob" starts with Bob going to bed and leaving a candle burning. Bob's dog then sees Alice's cat in the garden, and jumps at the window, knocking over the candle and setting the house on fire. At the end of the episode, the exact same sequence of events happens again.
  • Downplayed:
    • Book-Ends
    • "The Adventures of Bob" starts and ends with Bob lighting a candle.
  • Justified: Bob didn't go anywhere.
  • Inverted:
    • "The Adventures of Bob" ends with Alice's house catching fire, not Bob's.
    • "The Adventures Of Bob" starts with Bob's house catching fire and ends with Bob's house being flooded.
  • Subverted: At the end of the episode, a house catches fire. But it wasn't Bob's.
  • Double Subverted: ...until the scene pans to Bob's house, which is caught ablazed.
  • Parodied: Bob jokes about his damaged house being set ablaze again, which actually happens during his sleep.
  • Zig Zagged: Some episodes tend to start and end in the same location, but others don't.
  • Averted: "The Adventures of Bob" ends with Bob sleeping in Alice's house.
  • Enforced: "We don't have enough time to draw the interior of Alice's house! Make it end in Bob's house or something."
  • Advertisement:
  • Lampshaded: "I feel like I've been here this morning..."
  • Invoked: Bob purposely sets his house on fire before "The Adventures of Bob" ends.
  • Defied: Bob buys a fire alarm to make sure his house doesn't burn down again.
  • Exploited: Bob went back to get something he thinks will be useful during the next episode.
  • Implied: At the end of the episode, Bob is shown lighting a candle. The candle falls to the floor before the scene cuts to black.
  • Discussed: "Wait, why are we here again?"
  • Conversed: "I think we've been here before, like in that movie."
  • Deconstructed: Bob's house already burned down, so it can't burn down again.
  • Reconstructed: Bob's house was rebuilt during the episode.

Now its over...uh, oh, Here We Go Again!
