* 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.

He laments that he already housed[[hottip:*:ate the whole thing by himself]] one of them, and didn't know what else to do. This was the immediate response:

* In one episode of ''ParksAndRecreation'', the gang is auditioning mural ideas. Jerry starts to give a touching speech about how his idea was influenced by his mother, but he accidentally calls the mural a "murinal." Seeing as how he's the ButtMonkey, nobody lets him live it down.

* Semi-subverted in ''TheWestWing''. Toby Ziegler, about to leave for a meeting on federal estate taxes, delivers a [[BrooklynRage towering rant]] against the "death tax" while striding about his office picking up papers, getting dressed... the phone rings, Bonnie answers, then starts calling "Toby!" Ginger actually says "He's rollin'..." as Toby comes to a thunderous conclusion, sails out the door and comes to a screeching halt as Bonnie yells "''Toby, they cancelled the meeting!''"
