* In ''Theatre/RosencrantzAndGuildensternAreDead'', Rosencrantz thinks he hears music, but decides he must be imagining it. Guildenstern then tells an allogorical story about a man who sees a unicorn but doesn't believe it until other people also say they can see it (and the more people see it, the less fantastic they find it). By the time he's finished the story, Rosencrantz has decided "I knew all along it was a band." Guildenstern sarcastically echoes "He knew all along it was a band."

* In the DonaldDuck comic [[CarlBarks "The Old Castle's Secret"]], after the "ghost" is revealed to be [[spoiler:a guy using invisibility spray]], Donald tries to claim he knew it all along (rather than being terrified out of his wits while Huey, Dewey and Louie single-handedly solved the mystery themselves). His nephews are not amused.

* ''Film/TheLandBeforeTime'': After Cera was cornered by a pack of Pachycephalosauruses that were scared off by a seemingly monstrous tar blob monster, she becomes afraid that the monster will get her too. However, the monster turns out to be Littlefoot and the others all covered with tar. Once Cera realizes this, she then proclaims that she knew all along that it was them.

* In ''Film/StageDoor'', Anthony Powell is a nervous wreck on opening night because Terry Randall, the actress he picked for the lead part of the show he's producing, has been terrible during rehearsals, and the only reason he cast her in the first place was because his mysterious benefactor insisted he cast her. When she ends up giving a brilliant performance opening night - due to circumstances he's entirely unaware of - Powell acts not only as if he knew Terry was going to be good all along, he also acts as if he always knew the benefactor was in fact Terry's father (who, ironically enough, was hoping she'd fail so she'd quit acting).

* C-3PO says the line verbatim in ''TheEmpireStrikesBack'', claiming he knew all along that Lando Calrissian was [[ReverseMole really on their side]]. Of course, this seems more like wishful thinking that just happened to be correct, since 3PO was already having a pretty bad day what with being dismembered and carried around on Chewie's back like a bookbag, and he really wanted to catch some kind of break.

A lot of times in life, lots of people jump to conclusions about certain kinds of things. After a little bit of misunderstanding, once a character finds out what's really going on, he will then proclaim rather [[{{Blatant Lies}} blatantly]] that he knew it all along. This is something that you can expect a LargeHam, a SmallNameBigEgo, an IdiotHero, or a MilesGloriosus to do.
