* ''Series/{{Limitless}} begins with protagonist Brian evading the FBI using the NZT powers, dodging traffic perfectly, and evading being shot at by jumping into the path of a moving subway train. Then it freezes, and the narration begins.

* Mrs. Richards in the ''Series/FawltyTowers'' episode "Communication Problems" sets the tone for her general behaviour by barging into a conversation, demanding Polly's attention, and refusing to listen to anything anyone says. This leads to about the only episode in the show where [[UnsympatheticComedyProgatonist Basil]] comes off as sympathetic, because he's dealing with Mrs Richards.

*** Adric's first appearance has him trying to join the gang which his brother, Varsh, has formed. This scene includes a close-up of Adric's badge for mathematical excellence, as well as establishing that he has a rather high opinion of himself.

*** Jack Harkness's first line in the new series is "Excellent bottom." ... While staring at Rose Tyler's ass through binoculars, who is dangling thousands of feet in the air from a rope tied to a barrage balloon. His fellow soldier thinks the line is aimed at him, to which Jack responds by patting the guy's bottom before setting out to go rescue Rose.

* Proving you can do this before the show even airs, is Ed O' Neil's audition for one [[Series/MarriedWithChildren Al Bundy]]. Upon walking through the door, he was supposed to read his line. But he added a small something beforehand. A weary sigh indicating Al wasn't happy to be home. He locked the part up.

* In the pilot episode for ''TheSarahConnorChronicles'', [[RobotGirl Cameron]] has several moments that could count, from [[CarFu running over Cromartie with a truck]] and uttering the iconic "Come with me if you want to live" line, to her [[KungShui brawl with Cromartie that levels a house]] to her nonchalantly [[FullFrontalAssault beating up a group of drunks while stark naked.]] It's up to the viewer to figure out which one works best.

* ''AshesToAshes'' had three of the same characters from ''Series/{{Life On Mars|2006}}'', but manages to give them each an ECM for those members of the audience who weren't familiar with LOM. Gene Hunt's tour-de-force entrance - ''"Today, my friend, your diary entry will read, 'Took a prozzie hostage and was shot by three armed bastards.'"'' - Ray bouncing Markham's head off the Quattro, and Chris's insistent ''"I'm not nervous. I'm just cautious."''. For the new characters, Shaz's is her dancing to the Walkman, and Alex's know-it-all use of finger quotes when she talks to Gene, calling him a construct.
