* Ever since CBS brought ''ThePriceIsRight'' back in 1972, every host has repeated every contestant's bid once it is made in the one-bid round. Presumably so whoever is operating the tote screens will get it right.

* Echo was a nymph who was cursed by Hera to not be able to speak anything except the words she had just heard, after she was caught consorting with Zeus. Because of her curse Echo was unable to seduce the beautiful Narcissus, and after Narcissus died Echo would only repeat the words of grief she heard other people say. Eventually Echo herself died of grief and all of her body wasted away except her voice.

* ''Anime/{{Stitch}}'' has this happen in Episode 14: Yuna is trying to get Tarou to eat healthily and asks him what he normally eats. Although he whispers the answer in her ear, his dialogue is still just about audible, before Yuna repeats what he said out loud. It is easy to miss, so it doubles as RepeatingSoTheAudienceCanHear if you didn't catch it the first time.

'''Yuna:''' What!? You can't get big and strong on a diet of candy and ketchup!

* If we had a leg of meat for every time this happened in later episodes of ''WesternAnimation/{{SpongeBob SquarePants}}'', we'd be able to feed most of the hungry children in this world. The eponymous sponge even managed to do this with the [[FunWithAcronyms long and rather clumsy]] S.D.E.A.S.E. ("Snail Disease Expert and Snail Expert") - no fumbling over it or anything, he just did it.

to:

* ''WesternAnimation/BobsBurgers'' does this as frequently as its extreme close-up {{sting}}s. With the words repeated in monotone for humorously banal effect.

* Like the above TF2 example, ''VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}'' will occasionally have the announcer, Athena, announce that there is only so much time left (a minute, 30 seconds, or 10 seconds) - only to have another character say something to the same effect, but with a bit more flavor. It can also happen if the enemy team has a sniper (Widowmaker or Hanzo - Ana doesn't trigger the voicelines), turret (only Torbjorn, as Symmetra has too many turrets to be constantly announcing each one), or a shield generator or teleporter. Unfortunately, if not taken care of, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BhYdh4DDH1Y it can be taken to]] CaptainObvious lengths.
