* In ''GoodLuckCharlie'', in the episode "Guys & Dolls", PJ lampshades this trope. He hears Gabe's voice in his head saying, "You're just like dad, dad, dad..." then he asks himself, "Why do flashbacks always echo?" or something like that.
* Parodied in ''{{Frasier}}''. After reminiscing about the past, the characters look dazed and introspective as harp music is playing in the background, a typical cue for a flashback scene. A moment later they snap out of it. Still hearing the music, they turn around to see that someone behind them was [[SorryILeftTheBGMOn actually playing a harp]].

* Done straight in the film ''PhantomPlanet''... and mocked by ''MysteryScienceTheater3000'' in their ninth season. "Congratulations Mrs. Astronaut, it's a boy boy boy...", "Wake up Frank, you wet the bed bed bed...", "Frank, you're the worst party clown we've ever had had had...", ....

* ''{{Lost}}'' uses a whooshing sound to indicate flashbacks, although one can usually tell by the setting ''not'' being the island.

It happens all the time, you slip in the shower or remember something funny and whoosh! You're in a FlashBack, and everyone knows it.

This is compounded by the familiar technique of echoing whatever phrase triggered the flashback as the [[SceneTransition scene slips]] into the past. ("Are you okay... okay... okay...?" And then you're in the FlashBack.)

* ''StickmanAndCube'' couldn't resist having a go at this one: Stickman once patiently explained to Cube how to flashback, including repeating the last word of your sentence over and over again, and the obligatory sound effect. Cube then used these techniques to flash back to Stickman teaching him how to flashback. Cue neverending loop.

* Parodied in WesternAnimation/{{Duckman}}. An episode begins with Duckman waking up tied to a table and wondering how he got there. He thinks "Think back, back, back..." and flashes back...to him waking up tied to a table just a few seconds ago. This time he thinks "Think back, back back...must think back a little farther, farther, farther...". He flashes back to waking up again. Rinse and repeat, but this time he adds "Maybe volunteering for [[MushroomSamba LSD research]] wasn't the the best way out of the Marines" and finally succeeds in flashing back.
* Invoked in ''VideoGame/EarthwormJim'';
-->'''Professor Monkey-For-A-Head:''' I remember it as if it were yesterday...yesterday...yesterday...
-->'''Psycrow:''' It ''was''' yesterday.
-->'''Professor Monkey-For-A-Head:''' Quiet! I am setting up a flashback! Yesterday...yesterday...yesterday...

* Parodied in ''{{The Fairly OddParents}}'' in an episode where several [[FlashBack Flashbacks]] occurred, each time preceded by a character providing the echo themselves: "...while he was away at summer camp...camp...camp." Further parodied when Timmy's dad gets an echo response to "summer camp" ''while in the flashback''; he adds "Put up drapes to cancel the echo" to his to-do list.
* Subverted in one ''FamilyGuy'' episode, Peter triggers a flashback in Lois's brother by saying [[TheHoneymooners "Pow! Right in the kisser"]], while dressed up as Ralph Kramden. Cut back to the present and Peter is actually saying the phrase over and over.
* ''TheSimpsons'' had Marge flashing back to Homer's words, only to reveal that Homer was whispering them to her through a cardboard tube, including the echo.
