* The chorus of the song "Circle of Shame" by The All New Rosie and Rachel Show is a series of minimal responses a woman uses to give the impression that she's listening. Listen to it [[http://invocal.bandcamp.com/track/circle-of-shame here.]]
** Except for one verse, which is about [[IntercourseWithYou something else entirely...]]

* This happens to Amy in one issue of ''SonicTheComicOnline''. Her friend says, to see whether she's listening or not, "I'm really Don Long-Legs in a wig" (which is funny since she has no hair, being an anthropomorphic bug), and Amy just replies "Mm".

Bob is busy with something - playing a game, reading a book, [[BreadEggsMilkSquick tampering in the domain of God]] - and Alice comes up and tries to talk to him about "something important." Bob just answers with a few muttered lines of, "Yep, uh-huh, yeah," the lion's share of his concentration on his task, until Alice gets annoyed and says something completely outlandish: "There's a weasel chewing on my [[Literature/{{Discworld}} figgin]]." After a moment, the absurdity sinks in and Bob asks what she said, which (usually) prompts the stock phrase: "You're not listening to me, are you?" Variations on the gag includes Bob failing to even register Alice's outlandish comment and her lamentation that he isn't listing, or first noticing what she said after she has long given up and left the room in exasperation.

* In "I Want a Trumpet" from ''Literature/LittlePrincess'', when the King becomes absorbed in a music box with a little toy that plays a trumpet, Little Princess says that she wants a trumpet too, but the King doesn't even hear her, as he's completely absorbed in the music box. So she asks him "Can I have lots of ice cream... for breakfast?" and he just replies "Whatever you say, poppet." In the next scene, she's not eating ice cream, she's just irritated because she wants a trumpet.

* ''{{Zits}}'' subverted this one: Walt's driving Jeremy to school, asks Jeremy a question, no response. Then he gets more outlandish, promising Jeremy more "gigawhatevers" in his computer, a raise in his allowance... oh, and Martians have landed. As Jeremy leaves, he agrees with Walt's plans for more memory and allowance and the like, but notes that the Martian thing seems unlikely.

* On ''QueerAsFolk'' Michael is in the laundry room, and there's an incredibly creepy guy there, staring at him like he wants to devour him. Michael rushes out of there and is in such a hurry that he drops things on the way out. When he comes back to the apartment, Ben is engrossed in the newspaper.

* In an episode of ''MurderSheWrote'', Jessica is worrying about her new book while the sheriff tries to discuss the case with her. Eventually he says they found lion tracks around the body, and she nods absently. Subverted when [[NeverOneMurder the next body]] shows up and she asks "No lion tracks this time?"
