** During [[ItMakesSenseInContext Mettaton's cooking show]] when he moves towards you with a cahinsaw, needing "a human soul" as an ingredient, Alphys interrupts with a phone call and his response is something like "I'm kind of in the middle of something here." [[spoiler: It turns out to be staged as part of Alphy's plan to stop you from leaving]].
** While running away from Undyne [[spoiler: during her boss fight]], at one point Papyrus calls and tells you that you, him, and Undyne should spend some time together. The problem is, you can't move during phone calls, but if you look closely, Undyne stops chasing you during the call. After befriending her, calling her at that spot later will have her say she purposefully waited while you were on the phone.

A subtrope of CasualDangerDialog. Contrast MidBattleTeaBreak, where the opponents are perfectly happy to let the distracted party take a break from the fight. Compare ExcuseMeWhileIMultiTask where the one taking the call uses it to showcase how much better they are at close combat than their opponent.
