* In "The Taketombo" from ''WesternAnimation/TimothyGoesToSchool'', the Franks are sad and muted at dinner because having broken Yoko's taketombo. When Big Frank tries to get them to guess what they're having for dinner and they don't really respond, he comments that it's "stewed brontosaurus with Brussels sprouts on the side." This is met with a sort of general "that's nice" from both of them.

* 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.
