* 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.

Unfortunately, this can lead people to assume HesitationEqualsDishonesty, never mind that hesitation is one of the most common things in realistic speech and can originate from ''many'' sources other than dishonesty (someone being drunk or high, absolutely terrified, wanting to make sure they ''are'' telling the truth) or from dishonesty unrelated to the issue at hand (e.g. someone lying that they weren't doing drugs in hopes of avoiding a drug charge doesn't mean they're lying when they say they didn't commit a robbery across town).

Added DiffLines:

* Downplayed in ''Film/TwelveAngryMen''; while there are plenty of impassioned and articulate speeches, the trope is less severe since the characters often stutter or pause at key points.

* The first incarnation of the Doctor in ''Series/DoctorWho,'' whose speech pattern came from the fact that Creator/WilliamHartnell kept flubbing his lines and they didn't have the budget to do it over and over until they got it right.

* The first incarnation of the Doctor in ''Series/DoctorWho,'' whose speech pattern came from the fact that Creator/WilliamHartnell kept flubbing his lines lines. Since the brand-new video technology was positively archaic by the standards of the Adobe Premiere era (edits would be performed by literally taking a razorblade to the magnetic tape), all video recordings were done "live" like a stage play and they didn't have reshoots were very rare and costly, meaning the budget gaffes were just left in. This also led to do it over and over until they got it right.other very visible flubs, like a moment in ''The Web Planet'' where an actor in a monster costume with limited visibility walks directly into a studio camera while its recording.
