* ''ComicBook/TheTransformersMoreThanMeetsTheEye:'' When introducing himself to Fulcrum, Misfire states the reason behind his name is a long story, before immediately stating that it actually isn't, but rather involves a "misunderstanding" involving a machine gun and a dozen dead Decepticons.

* ''Series/StarTrekVoyager''. In "Projections" this line is spoken by the Doctor to Captain Janeway because the [[DreamWithinADream events that have happened are all so convoluted]]. When Janeway does insist on an answer, she quickly loses patience and orders the Doctor thrown in the brig. Played straight in "Cold Fire".

Added DiffLines:

* In ''RosarioToVampire'' (the anime adaptation, at least), after her introductory arc and a few other episodes, the role of Ruby the witch is basically to appear with a NewJobAsThePlotDemands, the other characters ask what she's doing there, and she says "It's a long story" before going off into a monologue with a [[ShoujoDemographic sparkly-bubbly background]]--[[RuleOfFunny which is even shown around just her when the camera shows her from further away]]--while everyone ignores her. When she's preempted in the ski trip episode, she becomes upset since [[MediumAwareness it's pretty much the only thing she gets to do in each episode]].
