* The former TropeNamer was ''AnimalHouse''; towards the end, [[Creator/JohnBelushi Bluto]] gives a stirring speech about not giving up, and at one point says "Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor?" Otter, in reaction, looks confused for a moment and mutters, "Germans?" to which Boon responds "Forget it, he's rolling."

* In an episode of ''{{Titus}}''; Erin is chewing Ken out for being a bad father, at one point calling him a "Motard". When her rant ends, he just looks at her funny and says "Motard?"
* On an episode of ''BarneyMiller'' a riot breaks out in front of the precinct station. Barney gives an impassioned speech to a representative, saying among other things "Maybe we are all going to hell in a handbasket." When things quiet down, [[DeadpanSnarker Dietrich]] says to Barney "Hell in a handbasket?"
* This is a stock gag on ''TopGear''. with Jeremy Clarkson (and occasionally Richard Hammond) going off on a long-winded, over-the-top rant at one of the others (usually James May), at the end of which May will react to only one small part of the entire rant.
