* From the ''Series/{{MASH}}'' episode "To Market, To Market", as Henry is polishing his new desk:desk, he wants to brag to everyone coming into his office. This is an atypical example, because each time he does it (which he does to everyone he shows the desk off to) he's not actually listening to them. He's just glorying in having something cooler than ''[=MacArthur=]'' has.
