Added DiffLines:

* The ''Literature/VillageTales'' novels are big on these, especially ''Literature/TheDayThouGavest''. Justified in that they are SliceOfLife novels, and especially justified in ''The Day Thou Gavest'' owing to its being a DayInTheLife of the whole rural District.

* Mandus' epic closing lines in ''VideoGame/AmnesiaAMachineForPigs'', about [[spoiler:his and the machine's death at the beginning of the 20th century.]]
--> "And as the dust settled [[DiesWideOpen on my open eyes]] and we lay [[TogetherInDeath together embraced forever]], I heard miles above us, the sounds of the city turning over in its sleep. A church bell ringing out. And in that moment, the new century was born."

* Invoked in a subtle way by avant-garde composer Joseph Byrd on his 1969 album ''The American Metaphysical Circus''. The second-to-last track, "Leisure World" is a fake ad for a retirement community (voiced by [[{{Ghoulardi}} Ernie Anderson]]), but toward the end we hear the sounds of a man moaning in pain. After a pause the album ends with an instrumental reprise of an earlier song on the album, sounding like it's being played by a mobile on a baby's crib.
