*In Book 3 of ''Literature/CodexAlera'', Tavi and the Canim general besieging him pause their battle and play a game of Iudus to pass the time. It allows the Canim to recover their dead and injured, takes up enough time for conditions to shift towards night (when the Canim will have the advantage), and allows the general a chance [[EnemyMine to slip Tavi some information]] regarding the BigBadWannabe's weakness.

** The Brits did it again in the Falklands. Trapped between the ocean and a brutal artillery barrage, the British grunts decided to put the kettle on while the ruperts were figuring out what to do. In an understated way this is {{Badass}}. Well come now. Just because there's a war on and the officers are chasing their tails, doesn't mean you have to skip tea.

* Chazz and Stranz get one in during their LowSpeedChase in BladesOfGlory when their skates get stuck in the escalator steps. They have just enough time to chit-chat about Stranz's costume before they can get off the escalator and resume the chase.

* A reoccurring joke in WesternAnimation/APupNamedScoobyDoo is the ChaseScene with the MonsterOfTheWeek is paused (along with the music) usually by Daphne who has to go shopping, fix her hair etc.

* In ''Series/TheColbertReport'', Stephen has to chase down Jon Stewart to reclaim his [=SuperPAC=] (which he'd given over temporarily for legal reasons). The chase becomes increasingly hammy and over the top, until at one point they start doing backflips and somersaults--cut to Stephen and Jon sipping tea as they admire the stuntmen's work. Then it's back to the chase.

* A semi-example (in that the fight doesn't resume) occurs in ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Brawl''. In one cutscene from "The Subspace Emissary", Sheik smashes Fox's Arwing, forcing him to bail. The two then land, and charge at each other, only for Peach to stop them in order to hand out cups of tea.
** The funniest part is that Fox is (understandably) confused about this, and the camera (and by extension, Fox) pans over to Sheik...who somehow is already enjoying a cup of tea.

*** That in mind, tea (or any caffeinated drink, for that matter) is poorly suited for that due to its diuretic properties. In a survival situation, the abundance of clear water is not always a given and one should try to avoid activities that may dehydrate them.

** Explained in a ''Super Goof'' one-pager, "Dogs of War", in which Super Goof and a [[AddedAlliterativeAppeal fiery foe fight]] -- and promptly pause for a wienie roast.
--->'''Super Goof:''' These super-badguy battles could really ''tire'' a feller... If we didn't have ''lunch breaks!''
