* In ''Series/WolfHall'', Thomas Cromwell asks if Thomas More is threatening him ("I'm just interested") when More says he knows Cromwell is in correspondence with the Protestant, William Tyndale. Later, after More resigns his office and says he will write and pray in retirement, Cromwell recommends that he "write only a little, and pray a lot." More asks, sardonically, if that's a threat, but Cromwell [[RhetoricalQuestionBlunder likes to answer rhetorical questions]] and says that it's his turn.

* ''Series/CornerGas'': In one episode, Hank's car is impounded and accidentally sold to Wanda. Wanda rubs it in by saying "There are no words to describe how pleased I am with myself." When, to get back at Wanda, Hank gets her car impounded and buys it, Hank attempts to perform an IronicEcho but fails miserably, mangling the quote to a level of incomprehensibility: "I can't express happy words how I feel right." Which makes it all the more funny because he can't express how pleased with himself he is.

** This in a way builds up to the Doctor's own echo. Remembering how his entire civilization had been destroyed centuries ago and how he became more callous in manipulating others, he mused "[[WhoWantsToLiveForever sometimes I think Time Lords live too long]]." Later after seeing [[spoiler:just how far the other Time Lords would go to live]] and faced with the choice of [[spoiler:sacrificing himself to save Wilf]] he began to rage at the unfairness of it... only to remind himself "live too long."

Part two has Chiana trapped in solidified amnexus fluid, and Aeryn gleefully refusing to help her, throwing "Since when did I become your servant?" back in her face.

responsibility to his shareholders. After the heist, Nate Ford [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome shouts the exact same rant]] back at the insurance agent while simultaneously disarming him and bankrupting him.

* ''Series/TheSarahConnorChronicles'':
** Has two, both courtesy of Cameron. The first appears in the third episode, "The Turk," where John explains to Cameron that she needs to blend in, telling her "Don't be a freak." Later on, when he tries to rescue a girl who commits suicide by jumping off the roof of the gym, she throws the same words back in his face while physically restraining him, since trying to rescue her would draw attention to him.
** The second instance is in the second season episode "Ourselves Alone," in which Cameron has the line "What am I going to do with you?" The first time she says it, she's talking to a pigeon that's taken up a nest in the chimney. She accidentally kills it when her hand malfunctions. The next time she says the line, it's to Riley, which puts it in a much darker context and creates a legitimate fear in the viewer that Cameron is actually going to kill her. [[spoiler: She doesn't, but Riley's dead by the end of the episode anyway.]]

* ''Series/MurdochMysteries'': In "High Voltage'', Inspector Brackenreid learns from the mayor (and fellow Freemason) that Dr. Ogden is planning to run for office in the coming provincial election. The mayor warns Brackenreid this will have bad professional consequences for Detective Murdoch (because he is now her husband), and later Brackenreid warns her about such consequences in an effort to convince her not to run. After she objects to his interference in the decision, he takes Murdoch aside to have the detective order his wife not to run. Murdoch supports his wife's plans and tells the inspector so, concluding with the words, "This matter is closed," before [[ChangeTheUncomfortableSubject turning the topic to the current murder case he's working on]]. Later, Julia arrives at the morgue where Emily and Lillian are looking over campaign posters and tells them she has decided to withdraw her candidacy. Emily tries to talk her out of it, especially since her husband is an enthusiastic supporter. Julia firmly refuses, closing with the words, "This matter is closed."

** In "Bloody Hell", Chief Constable Davis has framed Brakenreid for graft, and visits him in custody, saying he has a choice, go to jail where he'd be surrounded by men he put away, or take a deal (call Murdoch off the case) and get a job in Central Records where he'd at least keep his pension. After Davis's involvement has been exposed, they still need his testimony about the corruption in the city council, so the Inspector goes down to the cells and offers him the same deal, in almost the same words.

** The episode "Jaynestown" comes with a subplot where the local magistrate hires Inara to sleep with his son, because he's 26 years old and "[[AManIsNotAVirgin not yet a man!]]" So they do the deed and the son finds himself disappointed that nothing, apparently, has changed. Inara tells him that whatever his father thinks, having sex has nothing to do with being a man -- what's important is what you do with yourself, sex or no. At the end of the episode, the heroes are very nearly caught because the magistrate has a landlock on ''Serenity'', until suddenly the landlock vanishes. Cut to the magistrate's home, as the magistrate berates his son for ''daring'' to defy him by lifting the landlock. His son just gives him a smug look and says, "Well, father, ''you'' wanted to make a man of me. I guess it worked."

** The season 3 finale has two that pay off in the end. The BigBad, Damien Moreau, escaped at the end of the previous episode to a small country called San Lorenzo. Nate is warned that "San Lorenzo has no extradition treaties" and "Damien Moreau will never leave San Lorenzo." as a testament to how invincible he is. At the end of the episode, when Moreau is arrested as a political prisoner and he's begging the Italian to get him on trial in another country, these two lines are once again repeated, this time as assurance that he won't be able to weasel his way out.
