* Sarah Connor's voicemail greeting in ''The Film/{{Terminator}}''. Subverted in that no one is fooled by it, and played for irony in that the message's joke is that "you're talking to a machine" when the Terminator is calling.

* One episode of ''Anime/SailorMoon'' had Rei calling up Mamoru for a date. She hears him say hello and starts talking only to stop when she hears the part about him not being home. Slightly ironic though, in that he really is home, but is out on his balcony deep in thought at the time (by this point, he's recovered a Rainbow Crystal and knows he is actually Tuxedo Mask and is thinking about how to secure another Crystal) so isn't paying attention to the phone.

* One episode of ''{{Cheers}}'' involves Sam's message, which sounds like him answering the phone, then a long pause, followed by "Just kidding. You got my machine." Diane calls Sam before her wedding to Frasier, hoping Sam is on a plane on his way to stop the wedding. When she thinks he has answered, she hangs up in disgust without hearing the rest, and thus doesn't know that Sam is on his way.

When someone calls another person on the phone, usually because of some urgent matter, the caller gets a greeting, usually "hello" or something like that, and the caller tries to speak to them, but realizes that the greeting was actually a voicemail recording.
