* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* '' VisualNovel/{{Narcissu}}'' and its prequel, ''Narcissu 2nd'', are made of this trope. There's not really much of a plot, just sick chicks musing about life, fate, & religion before they (inevitably) die.

Added DiffLines:

* The Operative engages in some contemplation in a deleted scene at the end of ''Film/{{Serenity}}''. Mal, who's not in a good mood to begin with and tends to dislike such contemplation, points out that the Operative doesn't find a better place do do so than right behind Serenity as she's preparing to take off, [[WeaponizedExhaust his contemplations are going to be cut short]].

* In ''ComicBook/TarotWitchOfTheBlackRose'', the action will sometimes grind to a halt so that Rowen can contemplate her navel.

* In ''ComicBook/TarotWitchOfTheBlackRose'', the action will sometimes grind to a halt so that Rowen can contemplate her navel. Sometimes, entire issues are devoted to navel gazing over various aspects of Wiccan beliefs, with forays into PurpleProse.

*** Interestingly, their suspicions are revealed to be correct in VideoGame/StarWarsTheOldRepublic and its associated media, which shows that there indeed was a threat manipulating the Mandalorians. Whether their course of action was correct is still up for debate.
* ''ShadowTheHedgehog'' has had this in his own spinoff title to the point where it has become exaggerated by the fanbase.
* Used literally in VideoGame/KingdomOfLoathing - one accessory is entitled the Navel Ring Of Navel Gazing, and confers incredible contemplative powers.

** A trippy one [[spoiler:comes from learning a quirk about the green gun which can multiply blocks which isn't an obvious use. A first time player may attempt a puzzle they've come across many times before because they couldn't solve it with the blue gun which ends in frustration because there aren't enough blocks. After finding another, carefully tucked away puzzle, it teaches the player about the multiplication trick. And then the game provides a quote on precisely what the player just experienced.]]
