* In one of the ''NightHuntress'' books, Bones says "I'm sorry" before knocking Cat out. Lampshaded later, when he says it again in reference to the situation in general, and she caustically inquires if that means he's about to knock her unconscious.

* Used by the Tenth Doctor in ''Series/DoctorWho'' at least once with his catchphrase "I'm sorry. I'm so sorry," just before he [[spoiler:wipes Donna's memory of their time together to keep her alive in "Journey's End"]].
** Also every other time Ten uses that phrase. Generally he's saying it to the VillainOfTheWeek just before killing them.
** Also done to Martha before the [[strike:kiss]] "genetic transfer", though she doesn't have time to be confused about the apology.
** Also used by the 11th doctor in the episode "The Eleventh hour" as he apologized to Rory for the phone bill for calling [[spoiler:the Atraxi]].

* Rikku pulls this before knocking Tidus out early in ''Videogame/FinalFantasyX'', though it means even less than usual since she does it in Al Bhed.

* When Casey does this on ''{{Chuck}}'', Chuck assumes it's for one of the many things Casey has ''already'' done--nope, it's for being about to handcuff Chuck to a table.

* A show by ''Dara O Briain'' includes a part about a midwife he and his wife were visiting during his wife's pregnancy. When he comes to a part about childbirth, he runs over to two boys in the front row he talked to earlier, to explain what's going to happen when he tells this story, and the whole situation becomes more and more hilarious as he's [[OverlyPreparedGag constantly apologizing to the women in the audience about the joke he's going to make]].
