* Parodied In SonicForHire, Sonic and Tails get the clue "When at the start the code is the key". Sonic figures it out but repeatedly refuses to tell Tails what the answer is, saying "There's no time!". It's even further parodied as there is a part where the two are riding an extremely slow platform and Tails points out there's plenty of time to explain, however Sonic just jumps to the next platform shouting "No time!".

* Parodied in the fourth iteration of the ''ScaryMovie'' series, when the Tom Cruise/''[[Film/TheWarOfTheWorlds War Of The Worlds ]]'' character says "We're leaving this house in 30 seconds, there's no time to explain", and a random passerby runs up to the window and screams "Alien Attack!". Tom admits that that pretty much covered it.

Added DiffLines:

* Happens ''a lot'' in ''WesternAnimation/TotallySpies,'' though by the fifth time the phrase could practically be swapped with, "You were {{brainwashed}} by the villain of the week, but we stopped him, and now you're back to normal." Brainwashing is very a popular thing in this show.

* In ''VideoGame/HaloCombatEvolved'', Cortana sends Master Chief to warn Keyes not to activate Halo. She tells him she has no time to explain why, and [[PoorCommunicationKills this leads to a horrible mess]]. When they meet up, it turns out that it was Chief's fault. [[spoiler: The reason for Cortana's panic was that she'd just discovered the "weapons cache" Keyes thought he was looking for was actually a [[SealedEvilInACan Flood containment facility]].]]
