* An episode of TheCrampTwins has [[InsufferableGenius Lucien]] accompanying his door-to-door salesman father on a day at work, and loudly mentioning the awful ingredients of the products Mr Cramp is trying to sell, and we get a montage of doors being slammed as he lists all the possible side-effects, ending with Cramp coming home and declaring it his worst day ever. The next day we see [[{{Jerkass}} Wayne]] making sell after sell as he shamelessly lies and makes outrageous promises to persuade people to buy, ending with Cramp coming home and declaring it his best day ever while singing Wayne's praises. [[spoiler: It turns into an OhCrap when Lucien informs him that he failed to notice that Wayne had closed a deal by promising a customer ponies that belong to Cramp's BadBoss's SpoiledBrat daughter]].

* In issue 24 of ''ComicBook/JusticeLeagueInternational'', Maxwell Lord throws a party, inviting several superheroes under the pretext of opening a branch of the League to be based in Europe. He tasks Oberon with asking all the prospective candidates a series of personal--and as it turns out, rather invasive--questions. The heroes' reactions grow from incredulous to annoyed to insulted rather [[http://oi31.tinypic.com/24pj7ys.jpg quickly]].

* Several story arcs in ''{{Powers}}'' include a montage sequence of people responding to questions about the current case. Unlike most of the examples, these sequences end in a success (i.e. Walker and Pilgrim finally find somebody who has a useful lead).

* ''AtomicRobo''. In "The Ghost of Station X", a team from Tesladyne is trying to track down an entire house that was covertly shipped in one piece from New York. There are no records remaining (erased by the conspiracy), but they figure someone involved in a move like that must not have forgotten. After a series of increasingly incredulous responses from movers, skycaps, stevedores, pilots and shipping clerks when they ask if they'd helped move a whole house by air freight, one actually says yes.

* [[MalcolmInTheMiddle Malcolm]] finds himself subjected to this as he tries to raise funds for a charity 10K. The montage suddenly cuts from people slamming the door in his face to people happily signing up to pledge money, and then we see Malcolm giving a thumbs up from [[InspirationallyDisadvantaged Stevie's wheelchair]], while Stevie himself sits at the curb, looking pissed.
