* In an episode of ''NedsDeclassifiedSchoolSurvivalGuide'', the eponymous character has trouble concentrating on a project he has to complete in 3 days, and has a bet going on with Moze on whether or not he'll actually finish it. She catches him goofing off time and time again with such activites as constructing popsicle-stick ninjas, practicing origami and selling sushi from a stall. It turns out [[spoiler:the subject he chose for the project was on Japanese culture]], and (surprise, surprise), he wins the bet.

* In ''VideoGame/RatchetAndClankFutureACrackInTime'', when the titular duo use a time portal to travel back in time 10 years to the Battle of Gimlick Valley, Ratchet and Clank need to get on top of the dam to take down the Argorian ship that's trying to destroy it. Ratchet then realizes that he'll need some vine seeds, while Clank is confused ("How will vine seeds help us defeat the Argorians?"). After planting the seeds, the fully grown vines from 10 years later grow through the time portal, allowing Ratchet to grind on them and get onto the dam.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' episode "Bad Jubies", Finn, BMO and LSP are busy building a shelter for a huge storm, but Jake is seemingly just sitting there, listening to birds sing. LSP in particular is angry at Jake not helping them out, but when the storm hits and the others are inside the shelter despairing, Jake reveals that he was memorizing bird calls to calm their nerves while cooped up inside. [[spoiler:Jake's singing also stops the storm, which turned out to be sentient, and is so enthralled by the bird calls that it cease its rampage.]]

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', "Swarm of the Century": Pinkie Pie spends most of the episode gathering musical instruments while Twilight and the rest of her friends are trying to get rid of the parasprites. Just after Twilight's last desperate attempt to get the parasprites to stop eating all the food [[NiceJobBreakingItHero backfires spectacularly]] and she gives up in despair, Pinkie saves the day by leading the parasprites away from town with a one-pony band. Deconstructed slightly because Pinky was the one member of the Mane Six that knew how to deal with the parasprites effectively and her running around looking for instruments without explaining why comes across to the rest of the girls (until the end) like Pinky's typical CloudCuckoolander behavior.

* When [[TheDresdenFiles Harry Dresden]] first encounters the eldest queens of Faerie, Mother Winter is quietly knitting a small gray square despite the fact that the rest of their kind are marching to war. This turns out to be a powerful form of AntiMagic that, once unraveled, will take any spell it touches with it, [[spoiler: including the one that turned Lily to stone]].
* In ''TheFifthElephant'', Sybil discovers [[spoiler: a secret door]] while measuring some rooms for carpets. She later explains her discovery to Vimes:
--->'''Sam:''' I don't want to sound impatient, dear, but is this a carpet moment?
--->'''Sybil:''' Just stop thinking like a husband and start listening like a copper, will you?
