* ''{{Eastenders}}'' had a scene where Jack Dalton told Dennis Rickman the truth about what really happened to his father Den Watts. Predictably it was drowned out by the noise of a passing train. It wasn't until several weeks later that viewers learned that Dalton told Dennis that Den was alive.

* During the reading of the will in ''Literature/TheWestingGame'', the attorney reads, "the one who gets the windfall will be the one who finds the fourth..." only to be interrupted by another character making a nervous joke. The attorney goes on to read the fourth point, and the will is neither repeated nor available for reading. [[spoiler: Nothing, however, was actually read during the outburst, which was staged in order to distract the characters (and readers) from the fact that the "fourth" is exactly what the heir is supposed to find.]]

* Also done for laughs in ''WesternAnimation/{{The Fairly OddParents}}'': when Timmy goes back in time and meets his parents as children, when Mr. Turner says his name a car passes and doesn't let the viewer hear it. The same happens when Mr. Turner says his future wife, then crush's name.
** This was also done as the plot of a whole episode. Timmy gets fed up with noise constantly interrupting him, so he wishes for a world completely without sound. As per usual, this bites him in the ass when he finds out a meteor is headed straight for Earth and he can't wish it away due to not being able to speak, so he must unwish the no sound wish through [[ChekhovsSkill charades.]]

* In ''Film/TheLadyVanishes'', Ms. Froy tries to introduce herself to the heroine but loud train noises cancel out what she is saying. This prompts Ms. Froy to write her name on the window, which turns into a ChekovsGun later when the heroine sees the writing again, proving to herself that she was not imagining their encounter.

* The first scene of ''GhostInTheShell'': Motoko Kusanagi is spying on a meeting between a foreign diplomat and a computer programmer, discussing a 'Project 2501' that is behaving strangely. The programmer says that the project was originally intended to -- but Batou calls Motoko mid-sentence. [[spoiler: Project 2501 is 'the Puppetmaster', a sentient entity created by a confluence of digital information struggling to escape that Section 9 mistakes for a human super-hacker and pursues throughout the film.]] Motoko wasn't observing the meeting to gather information - she was just there to [[spoiler: assassinate the diplomat.]]
