* In the spirit, but not quite the letter, of this trope, Comrade Vasquez of ''VideoGame/{{Tropico}} 4'' will, when asking you to arrest the Capitalist faction's leader, read the entire text box, including the in-game effect, instead of just the first paragraph.

* In ''Series/BrooklynNineNine'', Jake does this while he was reading cue cards [[spoiler:written by the guy who's holding him hostage.]]

* In ''Series/BrooklynNineNine'', Jake does this while he was reading cue cards [[spoiler:written by the guy who's holding him hostage. In this case, however, the guy is strung out on a cocktail of meth, cocaine and various other drugs, so in Jake's defence the line between 'script' and 'stage directions' is probably not 100% clear.]]

Added DiffLines:

* A variant in ''Film/HailCaesar'', where the director is trying to teach his dimwit lead actor how to say his line properly:
-->'''Laurentz:''' "Would that it were so simple." Trippingly.
-->'''Hobie:''' Would that it were so simple trippingly.
-->'''Laurentz:''' No, don't say "trippingly," say ''the line'' trippingly!

* It's relatively common for new items in ''VideoGame/KingdomOfLoathing'' to have leftover design notes from the developers in their descriptions. Especially when someone gets an item sooner than they expected to be possible, and they aren't done making it yet.

Added DiffLines:

* One of the many things that goes wrong in ''Theatre/ThePlayThatGoesWrong''. When the female lead Sandra is knocked out, the stage manager Annie is shoved on to the stage with a copy of the script to take her place. Needless to say, she starts reading the stage directions out loud, and ends Act 1 by shouting "Blackout! Intermission!"
