* Oh Jason, if only Franchise/{{Batman}} had told you he loved you. How much trouble, trauma and violent murder could have been avoided? Possibly justified in that Batman thinks his love for his boys is [[CannotSpitItOut perfectly obvious.]] And Jason probably wouldn't have believed him anyway.

->'''Skitter''':Id always hated those parts in the TV shows and movies, where everything could be resolved with the simple truth. It was why Id never been able to watch romantic comedies. It grated: the sitcom-esque comedic situations which would be resolved if people would only sit down, explain, and listen to one another, the tragedies which could have been prevented with a few simple words.
->I didnt want to be one of those tragedies.

...\\
'''Horatio''': Hang on, no. This is the one for the escape. ''[blows horn]''\\
''[a giant boulder comes flying past and hits some soldiers off screen]''\\
'''Jack''': Did you just. Tell. The trebuchet men to fire?

* ''WebAnimation/IfTheEmperorHadATextToSpeechDevice'': When Kitten is forced to [[spoiler:exchange his caretaker post]] with the Fab Custodes, he leaves just before the Emperor wakes up and asks for explanation.

It was literally two seconds that ruined everything.

Sometimes, this poor communication can be entirely legitimate. After all, miscommunication and misunderstanding are TruthInTelevision, and some stories are written with this point in mind. This often happens in mystery stories, such as where a murderer [[MurderByMistake kills an innocent victim]] [[CouldHaveAvoidedThisPlot due to a misunderstanding]].

** Except the whole reason they see it as a betrayal was, because Jack did find Pitch's lair, he was away from the rest of them and the Easter Eggs at a point where Jack was the only one who could fight back if Pitch or his minions attacked, which they did while Jack was away. And with the eggs destroyed, there (to their knowledge,) wasn't anything left to rekindle humanity's belief in them. So even if Jack had told them what had happened on his end it was too late at this point; the damage had been done.
