* In ''Series/OurMissBrooks'', whenever Miss Brooks and Miss Enright meet.
* The respective 'verses of ''Series/HawaiiFive0'' and ''Series/NCISLosAngeles'' are [[WorldOfSnark full of snarkers]]. So naturally, in the two-episode crossover, there is a ''lot'' of snarking going on, especially between Deeks and Danny.
* ''Series/GilmoreGirls''. The scripts of that show do not call for pauses.
* ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000''. The bots try to out-snark one another on some topic when one of them makes a seminal joke.
* Jim Brass and Gil Grissom sometimes used to get into this in ''Series/{{CSI}}''.
* Niles and C.C. from ''Series/TheNanny''.
* ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' uses this a lot. [[WorldOfSnark Not very surprising, considering the type of work it is]]. Even Giles and Wes get in on it sometimes. Lampshaded in Season 4 by a random vamp:
-->'''Vamp:''' Are we gonna fight, or is there just gonna be a monster sarcasm rally?
