Exceptions to this trope can come from works produced through improvisation, either live or as part of the writing process, and tend to appear a lot in indy films. On other occasions, stumbling or inarticulate speech will be used deliberately to suggest a character is dishonest or distracted, or may be used to make the character seem {{Adorkable}}. Aversions are often examples of NarrativeFiligree. Films that wholly avert the trope are sometimes termed "mumblecore". Averting this trope seems to be divisive: either the dialogue sounding natural helps set the feel of the film and makes it feel more homely and, well, natural, or instead, it becomes difficult to understand what characters are actually saying and thus, ruining the experience of the film; so, basically it's the scripting equivalent of ShakyCam.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/TheNewsroom'', being an Creator/AaronSorkin show, has the protagonist engage in a rant early on about why America is ''not'' the best country in the world, as is fashionable to believe, citing a number of statistics off the top of his head (to be fair, though, he's a news anchor, so he probably memorized those statistics at some point).

* FinalFantasyXII - Vayne has multiple minor pauses in his first speech as Lord Consul of Rabanastre to make it sound more natural and spontaneous. Whether this was intentional by Vayne is cleverly left ambiguous.

** ChristopherWalken's mannered start-and-stop dialect is also reflective of how he talks (and acts) in real life.

* ''Podcast/ItMakesASound'''s Deirdre Gardener, fictional amateur radio host and superfan of a local musician, appears to minimally script her show. Her halting speech, dysfluencies, mumbled asides and off-mic interruptions only serve to underscore a beginner's lack of planning, though she makes up for it in sheer melodramatic [[LargeHam zeal]] for her subject.

Added DiffLines:

* The phone conversation in ''Film/DrStrangelove'' is filled with pauses and stuttering on the President's part (we don't hear the other half of the conversation). This is because Peter Sellers ad-libbed the whole thing.
