Answering Machine Escalation
One character leaves a series of messages on someone\'s machine or voicemail, and they get progressively more desperate or panicked.
- In one episode of Breaking Bad, Jesse gets multiple messages from Saul asking him to come see him. Each subsequent message is more demanding and more worried-sounding.
- In The Incredibles, near the end, Helen checks her messages to see multiple from Kari about Jack-Jack. The first is a calm report that Jack-Jack is acting slightly abnormally. Subsequent messages are extremely unsettled when Jack-Jack's more interesting powers manifest, until she starts screaming into the phone with terror. The final message is a disturbingly calm thanks for the replacement sitter... who wasn't hired.
