* Similar but different application in an episode of ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic''. Rainbow Dash discovers that her friends have a weekly "pet playdate" and asks why she's never found out about this. They thought about telling her, but she A) doesn't have a pet and B) tends to be napping around the time they have the playdate, so they figured she wouldn't really care one way or the other if they told her. She concedes the logic, then decides to get offended at the implication that she'll never have a pet with whom to participate.

A character who [[LovesSecrecy just loves to keep others intrigued]] may sometimes use this as a pretext.

* In the ''PunkyBrewster'' episode "Growing Pain," Glomer starts to grow uncontrollably after he sneezes from eating pepperoni pizza. The flowers from Margaux's parade float help Glomer to shrink a little, but as he tries to tell Punky this, she's not listening because she's competing against Margaux with her own float.
-->'''Glomer:''' But Punky...Margaux's flowers making me--\\
'''Punky:''' I don't want to hear another word about Margaux's dumb flowers!\\
(''Later, when he finally tells Punky this'')\\
'''Glomer:''' Flowers shrinking me back to normal. Pretty nifty, huh?\\
'''Punky:''' Glomer, why didn't you tell me?\\
'''Glomer:''' Well, I trying to. But you say "I don't want to hear another word about Margaux's dumb flowers"!
