* An NPR story about a researcher who analyzes pauses and hesitation in human speech featured a number of audio clips where all actual words were edited out, and only the pauses, "umm"s and other space-fillers were left. Arianna Huffington was noted by the researcher as being an exceptional case in that she appeared to never insert filler sounds into her speech aside from outright pauses, and the accompanying audio clip was composed purely of brief inhalations and background recording hiss audible during pauses.

* ''TheWestWing'' and other Creator/AaronSorkin shows are prime examples- just about every Aaron Sorkin character is capable of breaking out a grandiloquent monologue at a moment's notice, and they're all witty as hell in everyday conversation. Breaking this expectation is a frequently recurring bit of humor for Sorkin- hyper-eloquent characters who will occasionally end up saying things like, "Don't tempt the wrath of the whatever from high atop the thing."

* The title character from Series/{{Sherlock}} not only gives several elaborate monologues per episode, but at a speed that most people could never reach in their lifetime. This is juxtaposed against John's dialogue, which is occasionally repetitive and occasionally includes pauses in the middle of sentences as he thinks.
