Is but a dream within a dream.
—"A Dream Within a Dream," Edgar Allan Poe
Ha ha, it was all a dream, everybody! ... those who have been irritated by this plot have been rewarded with the most irritating sort of ending that narrative has to offer.

Bender: But I destroyed the technology of the world! I ran on the beach and felt the sand between my foot-cups!
Technician: *shrugging* Everyone experiences the upgrade a little differently.
Bender: Oof. If that stuff wasn't real, how can I be sure anything is real? Is is not possible, nay, probable, that my entire life is just a figment of my or someone else's imagination?

Technician: No. Get out.
Futurama, "Obsoletely Fabulous"

You beat the game, yeah, dude you were supreme
but I hate to inform you, it was all just a dream (yes, really)
you stayed up late, you played until your thumbs bled,
but it was all just made up in Homeboy's head.
Mario 2, you're enjoyable, yes,
you were both grueling and fun, you put us kids to the test, for sure
but the game ends on such a cop-out-ey note

whoever's idea that was can lick my scrote.

Michaelangelo: Bebop and Rocksteady, as good guys?!

Raphael: This is one of those stories where we wake up at the end, and it was all a dream, right?
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, "Rhinoman" (which, contrary to Raph's thought, wasn't a dream)

Homestar Runner: And when your puppet show gets canceled after three seasons...

Peter: You've calmed down since this morning.
Jason: Well, it's dawned on me that this must be a dream. Think about it - if I'd really metamorphosized into a mini-Paige, The X-Files division at the FBI would've sent Mulder and Scully to investigate by now.
Peter: Keep in mind they only examine paranormal events suitable for a mainstream network television audience.
Jason: Curse the infallible logic of my subconscious!

Peter: I mean, there are mutants, and there there are mutants.
