* ''Film/{{Thunderball}}'', the fourth Film/JamesBond film, shows Q introducing Bond to his new tricked-out briefcase, accompanied by the line "Now pay attention, 007". This line would later become one of many famous motifs in the series, but Desmond Llewelyn does not move his mouth.

* In the episode of ''Series/TheGreatestAmericanHero'' that aired only three days after RonaldReagan was shot by John Hinckley Jr., two occasions where the students addressed the protagonist as "Mr. Hinkley" were hurriedly and very obviously dubbed over with a drawn-out "Mr. H", and in at least one case manifestly ''not'' by the actor speaking on screen. Two other instances took place at an airport and were [[PlotBasedVoiceCancellation masked with the noise of an airplane taking off]], but one use of "Mr. Hinkley" late in the episode made it through anyway. (After that, the character's name was carefully avoided in the scripts until he [[UnfortunateNames suddenly became "Mr. Hanley."]])

* ''Series/MadAboutYou'' uses it InUniverse when Paul makes a documentary about his family. A sound problem makes him want to loop a sentence his mother said, but she refuses to participate. Fortunately, Paul's wife Jamie can do an excellent impression of Paul's mother so she does the looping instead.

** In a Season 4 episode, Dr. Cox imitates making a call with a phone from the early 20th century. At one point during the imitation, he spouts a few repetitive lines of gibberish, which don't match the movement of his lips at all.
*** In an [[InvertedTrope odd inversion]] of this trope, in the same season, it is apparent during the breakfast table conversation between J.D., Turk, Carla and [[GirlOfTheWeek Neena]] that for some reason, none of their lines were re-recorded in the studio. There's background hiss and it really sounds like none of the lines were recorded close to a microphone.

* Very rarely a line is dubbed over quickly days or hours before broadcast of a series to remove a line in the wake of a tragic event where a punchline which was fine days before would now go over like a lead balloon, as in when Lauren Graham redid a ''Series/GilmoreGirls'' one-liner punchline about Bali to instead be Maui days after the Bali nightclub bombings. However the ClosedCaptioning track had already been laid down (which is much, much more complicated to fix, requiring almost a complete re-do of an entire scene), so viewers with it on still saw the Bali reference.

Added DiffLines:

* For no known reason, all of the dialogue in ''Dancin': It's On!'' was ADR'd by the original actors.
* ''Film/SavingChristmas'' has a scene where several characters "talk" while holding coffee mugs over their faces to "hide" the fact that the actors' lips weren't actually moving at the time. It's not very convincing.

* It has been suggested that Donald Trump loops his boardroom speeches on ''Series/TheApprentice''. This may be to complete the editing "story" about why someone is getting fired, or simply to insert something more eloquent than what was actually said.
* This is the standard method of recording lines in ''SuperSentai'' despite the fact that it's LiveActionTV: the actors act out their scenes in front of the camera and then re-record ''every single line'' in a recording studio. According to one director, this is by far the hardest part of production, and also explains why most characters end up in a MilkingTheGiantCow situation.

* The ''Series/DoctorWho'' episode 'Midnight' had a lot of ADR. So much so that the corresponding ''Series/DoctorWhoConfidential'' episode was pretty much entirely about the ADR process.
