* In the ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' episode "The First Duty", Picard tasks [=LaForge=] and Data to go over the flight data recorder from Wesley Crusher's shuttle to figure out what caused an devastating crash that took the life of a squadmate. [=LaForge=] is skeptical, but does it anyway. After awhile, Picard approaches them and it seems that they're coming up with the same conclusion Starfleet Academy was - no idea what was going to happen and things seem sketchy, but no concrete proof. [=LaForge=] ''does'' note that the plasma interlock on Wesley's shuttle was opened, which is extremely dangerous as it could ignite the warp drive plasma. This little bit of information makes Picard realize what Nova Squadron was trying to do -- a DangerousForbiddenTechnique.

** Not to mention, in the episode where Sideshow Bob is the detective for once and Homer is the would-be victim, he discovers who's trying to kill Homer after Chief Wiggum mentions the work a mechanic did on the parade float. He then flashes back to the wrench that was used to prevent Homer from escaping a sauna and the oil fingerprint on the invitation letter to said sauna, as well as the mechanic that he and Homer had met earlier.
** In one flashback episode, several people congratulated Homer because Marge had become pregnant (with Maggie). Homer, himself unaware of the pregnancy, misinterpreted these comments (even the ridiculously direct ones) as regarding his new job. Then one character congratulates him on the new job, prompting Homer to respond, "New job? MARGE IS PREGNANT!?" That's "ridiculously direct", as in "Hey, Homer, way to get Marge pregnant!" "This is getting increasingly abstract, but yes, I do enjoy working at the bowling alley"
** When the family is trying to figure out a way to keep Apu from being deported, Abe mentions he could try living in a balloon. Lisa exclaims "That's it!", leading Bart to declare that she's as dumb as him. She explains that she connects Abe being a grandfather with grandfather clause, with his statement being irrelevant.

* Gauss once wrote in his diary "EYPHKA[[note]]Those are actually the Greek letters epsilon-upsilon-rho-eta-kappa-alpha, transliterated as E-U-R-E-K-A[[/note]]! num = Δ + Δ + Δ," thinking he'd proven Fermat's famously unproven polygonal number conjecture (yes, that's right, [[FermatsLastTheorem he did it more than once]]) for n = 3; he later realized that the proof in his head needed significant ironing out, but for an open question, he got it quickly enough.

* Being a murder mystery, VideoGame/Persona4 naturally has one such moment. However, it's the ''player'' who has to initiate it, fitting in with the theme of "Reaching out to the Truth". At a critical moment in the case, the player is given a [[AsYouKnow review of the facts]] (several times), and then a list of names. You get 3 tries and there, is only one right answer. Fail, and the case goes cold, leading to the [[MultipleEndings Bad End]]. But if you get it right, and Protagonist will say the name out loud, leading to the team figuring out who The Killer might be.
