* OrsonScottCard likes to do this in his books. A scene from one of the Shadow books involves Ender's mom and Graff talking about whether it's intentions or actions that determine one's supernatural fate, for example. The most plot-vital revelations in ''Xenocide'' are strongly obfuscated behind long, confusing {{Fauxlosophic Narration}}s.

* The activity which most concerns Pierre in ''WarAndPeace''. It's not enough to be [[MoneyToBurn stinking filthy rich]], no, he must learn the secrets of [[Literature/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy Life, the Universe, and Everything.]]

** ''Anime/CodeGeass'' does something similar in the epic battle in the finale.

** * ''Anime/CodeGeass'' does something similar in the epic battle in the finale.finale - somewhat justified in that they're ''freaked out'' by the way things have gone recently - [[spoiler: the first nuclear weapon detonates over a major city where most of them have lived, a major coup happens, most of them find out about Geass for the first time around then, and all of their allegiances get shaken up to the point where more than half of everyone's allies were once enemies, and vice-versa...]]

* In ''TransformersEnergon'', there were filler episodes every once in a while, where a couple of characters would sit around, and contemplate what happened since the last RecapEpisode.

* Invoked in Creator/RayBradbury's ''{{Fahrenheit 451}}'' during the speeches of Montag's boss Beatty. Beatty actually does mention people cleaning their navels in one speech. Beatty is deliberately trying to fuck with Montag's mind. And it goes into a deliciously awesome ShutUpHannibal

* Done sometimes in ''GreysAnatomy'', with Mer doing the narrating. It's usually plot-relevant and has something to do with doctors, medicine in general, and the [[TitleDrop title of the episode]], though.

* Tubbs on ''MiamiVice'' was especially prone to this kind of behavior; most anything involving the BigBad from season 1 or his daughter would immediately launch the audience into a five minute long flashback BigNo-filled [[SlowMotion Slow-Mo]] montage.
