Added DiffLines:

* ''Webcomic/{{Narbonic}}'' used this trope for a minor cliffhangar in the vaguely {{Steampunk}}-themed AlternateContinuity of the Sunday strips. Helen is rather dejectedly contemplating the fact that her attempt to reanimate a corpse has instead resulted in her discovering AntiGravity, which wasn't really what she had in mind (not to mention the fact they're going to have to somehow get the dead body down from the ceiling before it goes manky) when Mr Davenport the statistician has a minor EurekaMoment. The last line of dialogue in the strip is him saying:
--> "I have an idea."

* TheBraveLittleToaster: The scene where the appliances try to figure out how to set upon their journey to the city. Lampy and Radio get to try first, HilarityEnsues
* At the climax of Creator/SandyMitchell's TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}} novel ''Cain's Last Stand'', Literature/CiaphasCain tells them what they can do, tells us that they opposed it, but does not tell the reader until he actually does it: [[spoiler:calls up Varan and proposes a meeting to discuss surrender terms]].)

* Done in the modern remake of ''Film/OceansEleven'' and its sequels.
* In ''Film/MontyPythonsLifeOfBrian'', the PFJ's plan to kidnap Pilate's wife is described over the scene of it happening: "Now will be the moment for Habakkuk to get out his prong."
* ''Film/WhiteChristmas'': Phil has come up with a plan to delay the sheriff by lipsynching the song Betty and Judy had just performed. We're not told this in advance, only shown him holding the record. He drags the reluctant Bob away, then we cut to the two of them wearing feathers and carrying fans. Hehe.
* The end of ''Film/TheItalianJob1969'' ...although we never do get to find out what the brilliant idea was...
* Parodied in ''Film/ShaunOfTheDead'', where Shaun has to explain a plan in this way ''three times'' (with minor alterations) until he gets a version that he and Ed are both happy with. In addition, the footage that we see while he's describing the plans makes them look laughably easy, all finishing with everyone smiling and happy and a shot of Shaun sipping a tea (or beer) and winking smugly at the camera.
* ''Film/TheATeam'' remake movie does this twice: with the mission at the beginning of the movie and part of its finale [[spoiler:and the ending itself.]]
* Played with in Film/DodgeballATrueUnderdogStory, when a car wash is suggested to raise enough money to save the Average Joe's gym. Cut to a series of shots of sexy, scantily-clad women washing cars...only to reveal that it's actually Globo Gym's car wash next door, while Average Joe's car wash is completely floundering. "What are the chances? Same day, right across the street..."
