* ''WebVideo/TheSpoonyExperiment'' has two examples: during the review of ''Clones of Bruce Lee'', a character mentions BruceLee and another character asks "The actor?". Spoony sarcastically responds, "No, the golfer." Later, during Spoony's review of ''Ripper'', a character mentions that technology similar to what the Ripper (a serial killer) is using was recently stolen from her. The main character asks, "And you think the Ripper did it?"

* This is averted, subverted, and ultimately lampshaded in an early issue of ''Comicbook/SpiderMan''. Betty Brant, the Daily Bugle secretary, asks Peter Parker what his "trade secret" is concerning his photos of Spider-Man. Peter tells her [[SarcasticConfession he gets good pictures of Spider-Man because he secretly is Spider-Man]]. She responds with, "Oh well, ask a silly question..."

While examples on this page are of InUniverse instances of this type of exchange, this is certainly a staple of [=MST=]ing by pointing out where people are being oblivious to their dialogue (or [[ParrotExposition being repetitive in them]]). For example: [[Film/TheMummyTrilogy "This is a map to Hammunaptra."]] "''The'' Hammunaptra?" "No, the one in Jersey."
