Would you like a jelly ba-" before getting the bag of jelly babies smacked out of his hands by Borg, who is stressed out of his mind. The Doctor gives him a hurt look and tells him just a polite 'no' would have been sufficient.

* A variation occurs in the beginning of ''VideoGame/MortalKombatX''. Scorpion isn't ''interrupted'' when using his old '''"Get over here!"''' catchphrase, but it's not as dramatic as he likely intended it; Johnny Cage catches the spear in mid-air and quips, "Damn, I'm good," before plowing into him.

* Used with an especially long delay in an episode of ''Wrestling/{{WWE}} Raw'': BookerT began to yell his catchphrase, "Now can you dig that... SUCKA!" into {{Christian}}'s face, only for Christian to interrupt by punching Booker, causing a brawl that had to be broken up by officials.

* On ''TheGoonShow'', Bluebottle's catchphrase upon entering a scene was always a description of how he enters the scene (e.g., "Bluebottle enters stage left") followed by the phrase "waits for applause, not a sausage". Over time, the character became popular enough that his appearance really *did* result in wild applause, resulting in a gradual transition from: saying the line to laughter; saying the line to applause; saying the line and getting cut off by the applause, then completing it after the applause; saying the line and getting cut off by the applause, followed by some acknowledgement of said applause instead of completing the catchphrase; and abandonment of the catchphrase altogether.
