-->'''K.Rool:''' ''That's the point!'' Where are the pounding hammers? Squeaking machinery? Moaning Kritters? ''They're supposed to be busting their tails building my KCC-BM!''

* Germany's greatest defensive tactician of 1943-44, General Gottfried Heinrici, was famed for an almost psychic talent for predicting when a Soviet Combined-Arms Army was about to begin a Breakthrough-Offensive Operation in his sector - which he humbly and [[InvokedTrope somewhat misleadingly attributed to]] the trope of suspicious silence. In fact, it derived from close observation of previous Soviet bombardment schedules. [[note]] In this period, Soviet offensives were always preceded by earth-shatteringly large artillery barrages on all known and suspected German artillery, AT, and machine gun positions - but due to the inexperience of the gunners, they [[StrictlyFormula tended to be too formulaic]] and whenever they were forced to rush offensive preparations [[EnforcedTrope they often re-used bombardment schedules from previous offensives]]. By taking note of these tendencies, Heinrici was able to repeatedly withdraw troops from their positions and then rush them back in time to conduct a stronger defense from prepared positions against the assault by the Soviet Combined-Arms Army's assault guns + tanks + infantry. Heinrici's 'talent' faded as his opponents' skills and repertoire grew, but he had one final success during the ''Berlin Offensive'' of April 1945, when Georgy Zhukov was demoted from the Strategic role in which he excelled to Operational command of the 1st Belorussian Front. As always when he had taken Operational command, Zhukov tried to use a BoringButPractical preparatory bombardment - and was outfoxed by Heinrici, giving Ivan Konev's 2nd Ukrainian Front a two day head start in the race for Berlin.

** In the mini-series "MIA", Tucker notes that it's become quiet, but refuses to say the trope as he thinks doing so would be lame, "And there might be chicks listening". Church, however, pressures Tucker into saying the whole line.

** In ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'', Shepard gives a callback to Tali's line in ME1 if he romanced her, offering to find her someplace noisier if she still thinks the engine room is too quiet. The third party member will have either a TooMuchInformation reaction (if they weren't in the previous game and therefore didn't know that Shepard and Tali had hooked up) or GetARoom (if they did already know).
