->"''Never mind. Your face just broke the language barrier.''"
-->-- '''Delenn''', ''Series/BabylonFive''

Facial Dialogue occurs when a character is communicating not just his emotional reactions or intense feelings, but entire reams of dialog using nothing more than their facial expressions and without saying a single word. When two characters do this to each other, it results in entire paragraphs of byplay, all perfectly understandable to the audience despite the entire exchange being silent.

Used correctly, such scenes can be as good as, or even better, than those with actual spoken dialogue.

EyeTake, AsideGlance and FascinatingEyebrow may be used as part of the Facial Dialogue, but by themselves are only limited versions. Often the forte of TheSilentBob, TheVoiceless and TheQuietOne. Often featured in a NoDialogueEpisode. It is just as often used by characters who are perfectly capable of speaking, but just don't on this occasion, but in that case you should consider whether or not it qualifies instead as a MeaningfulLook.



[[folder:Anime and Manga]]
* Takeo from ''Anime/MagicUsersClub'' has literal facial dialogue at times, with his thoughts being written out on his face.
* ''LightNovel/KinosJourney'' has an excellent example in one episode: Kino is in the land of the people who drank nanomachines that transmitted every thought and feeling, and each eventually had to live apart from everyone. After the man telling the story finishes, Kino's pep talk causes him to realise something; he silently thanks her, and her expression clearly says, "You're welcome." She explains all this to Hermes to ensure the audience get the point too.
* Kotarou from ''Manga/GakuenBabysitters'', who rarely speaks actual words due to being a young toddler, usually communicates in this fashion.
* ''LightNovel/{{Baccano}}'' has Chane, [[BunnyEarsLawyer according to Claire]]. No one else can see it, but mostly they know better than to question him.
* [[CuteMute Akira Oono]], the titular character of ''Manga/HighScoreGirl'', relies almost entirely on facial expressions to communicate with others despite not being mute to begin with.

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* Duma, the Angel of Silence, speaks entire volumes with nothing but expressions in ''ComicBook/TheSandman''. His gestures and actions also say (and accomplish!) volumes more than his partner, Remiel, despite ''his'' almost complete inability to shut the hell up.
* The "intra-couple communication stealth mode" (between Comicbook/{{Empowered}} and Thugboy). Subtitled for the reader's sake.
* ''ComicBook/{{Watchmen}}'' is famed for doing this ''as well'' as having dialogue, adding a lot of depth to characters. The most famous example is when Rorschach's landlord begs him not to reveal to her children that she is a prostitute--his silent response is fascinatingly difficult to decipher.
* Peewee Friendly seems to communicate with his big brother Freckles by this means in the ''ComicBook/RichieRich'' comics.

[[folder:Films -- Animation]]
* ''Franchise/WallaceAndGromit'': Gromit. Although it's a necessity in his case, since he's mute, and he's a dog.
* Dopey, from ''Disney/SnowWhiteAndTheSevenDwarfs'', does this throughout the entire film.
* Toothless from ''WesternAnimation/HowToTrainYourDragon'' cannot speak, but you can always get a pretty good idea of what he's thinking by reading his facial expressions. There are even a few scenes where Hiccup and Toothless seem to communicate with ''only'' this.
* The student film ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2REkk9SCRn0 In a Heartbeat]]''[[note]] The film is about a gay boy's first crush on another boy. Don't follow the link if you don't like that kind of thing.[[/note]] has no dialogue and so the characters communicate solely through Facial Dialogue.

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* In ''Film/KungFuHustle'', the landlady of Pigsty Alley [[StealthHiBye pays a visit]] to Sum's car to give them a long-winded talking-to, which she does with much aplomb, and without speaking a single word out loud (though some of her dialogue comes from her hands, or rather, her fists. She doesn't punch anyone but she makes it clear that she has no qualms about doing so in future if necessary. She then [[StealthHiBye sends the intruders off]] without inflicting any physical harm, but she's delivered a wordless ultimatum that was clearer-than-crystal.
* ''Film/{{Serenity}}'':
** During the opening robbery, River and Zoe have a short conversation using nothing but facial expressions that goes something like, "That guy." "That guy? Are you sure?" "Are you kidding me or just an idiot? Of course I'm sure! That guy!"
* Jake, the PluckyComicRelief Sheriff's Deputy in ''Film/SupportYourLocalSheriff'', does this a lot. It was one of the things Creator/JackElam, the actor playing Jake, was best known for.
* Creator/GeneKelly has a few memorable looks, including one moment during the dance scene of "You Were Meant For Me."
* Creator/AkiraKurosawa was excellent at getting this out of Creator/ToshiroMifune.
** A short scene in ''Film/TheHiddenFortress'' had Tahei (Minoru Chiaki) and Matashichi (Kamatari Fujiwara) giving "You go first!" "No, you!" looks to each other as they hesitate to confront General Makabe (played by Mifune).
* John Cusack [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e6hQx9PW20E has a deep and profoundly spiritual conversation with a baby]] using nothing but expressions in ''Film/GrossePointeBlank''.
* ''Film/AsItIsInHeaven'', a Swedish film, where in one scene two main characters have such a non-verbal conversation.
* Some [[SilentMovie Silent Film]] stars mastered this out of necessity; e.g., Creator/HaroldLloyd, Creator/CharlieChaplin, etc. The last scene of ''Film/CityLights'', in which a whole mix of emotions play out on Charlie's face when he meets the flower girl again--joy, relief, shame, fear--is a master class in this trope.
* In ''Film/AnimalHouse'', a lot of Bluto Blutarsky's "dialog" is this.
* ''Film/GoneInSixtySeconds2000'' features one character, called "The Sphinx" by the other characters, making a ''phone call'' and using nothing but Facial Dialogue to do so. On the other end of the conversation, [[RealityEnsues Memphis can't tell if anyone is actually on the line]] and asks Sphinx to [[OnceForYesTwiceForNo hit a button on the phone to indicate if he's there]].
* In ''Film/TheBrothersBloom'', Bang-Bang has only two spoken lines of dialogue, comprised of only three entire words, and yet manages to be a complete DeadpanSnarker the entire film.
* In ''Film/TheFugitive'', a couple of meaningful looks between prisoners on the bus is all Richard Kimble needs to see to realize that they're about to make a violent escape attempt.
* Mentioned in ''Film/AnAdventureInSpaceAndTime'', when Creator/WilliamHartnell grouses about the number of lines he has to learn. Hartnell says a director once said "Bill can do all that with a look."
* In the teaser trailers (and posters for that matter) released for "[[Litarature/TheHungerGames Mockingjay]]" Peeta doesn't speak a word, yet his face conveys [[spoiler:that the hijacking is well in progress]].
* In the final scene of ''Film/TheLivesOfABengalLancer'', [[DisappearedDad Colonel Stone]] and [[WellDoneSonGuy his son, a junior officer]] exchange a handshake and [[SoProudOfYou a brief look]] that says volumes more than they've managed to in the whole movie preceding it.
* The final scene of ''Film/TheLongGoodFriday'' consists of BobHoskins sitting silently in the back of a car and slowly realizing [[spoiler:that he is completely fucked]].
* Hilariously subverted in ''Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbeanTheCurseOfTheBlackPearl''. Jack tries to subtly get Gibbs to look at Will using facial dialogue. When that fails, his subsequent attempts become comically more overt while Gibbs remains oblivious.
* In ''Film/BladeRunner'', Roy and Priss share their confidences and opinions about J.F. Sebastian using a few seconds of eye contact.
* ''Film/MadMaxFuryRoad'' has a lot of this. There's very little dialogue in the film, and even the most important story and character moments are often communicated through facial dialogue. One example is seeing Max realize he has a chance to escape once Slit unlocks his chains on Nux's car.
* Used to beautiful effect in ''Film/TheGoodTheBadAndTheUgly'', particularly in the MexicanStandoff where an exchange of glances between Blondie and Tuco show us that [[spoiler:they agree to both shoot Angel Eyes]].
* Ryan Gosling uses this a lot in ''Film/BladeRunner2049'', appropiately since his character is [[spoiler: a Replicant.]] A particularly good example comes in his "conversation" with the giant pink hologram Joi. He never says a word during the scene, but his silent, stone-faced reaction to the advertisement woman [[spoiler: calling him by the pet name his own "unique" copy of Joi used for him solidifies his desire to be [[GrowBeyondTheirProgramming more than just a machine]], a desire he acts on by flying out to rescue Rick Deckard from [[BigBad Wallace]]'s men.]]
* Mathilda May's character in ''Film/{{Lifeforce}}'' is a mostly silent (and [[EvilIsSexy always]] [[MsFanService unclothed]]) [[OurVampiresAreDifferent space vampire]]. Many of her interactions with her intended victims are entirely done via facial expressions, the best examples being during the sequences where she escapes from the Research Center at the beginning of the movie: a devilish smirk when she spots a soon-to-be-a-shriveled-corpse guard, a dismissive glance when she encounters the rest of the security force in her way out that soon morphs into a sadistic grin ''and'' a death glare as she blast them away without a second thought, just to name a few.
* Invoked in ''Film/FallenAngels'' where He Qiwu communicates largely through his facial expressions because he's mute. He acknowledges that while he isn't sure that he's able to say everything, especially to Charlie, he gets the feeling that he's generally understood.

* Late in ''[[Literature/TheDivineComedy Dante's Purgatorio]]'', Virgil manages to say "Be still" to Dante with only his face, not wanting to reveal to the ghost they're who they are just yet.
* Aly and Dove manage to hold an entire conversation like this in the second ''Literature/DaughterOfTheLioness''. (Apparently it's a hereditary trait, as in the previous book Aly notes how Dove's father and stepmother are able to hold a conversation purely by facial expression. She considers it a sign of a good marriage.)
-->''Word of the arrests reached Balitang House in the early evening. Dove, furious, came flying into the workroom as Aly met with her pack. Aly smiled at her young mistress as sweetly as she knew how. They understood each other. Dove did not need to ask if Aly had known about the arrests. Aly did not need to tell her that she had the matter in hand. The girl turned and walked out again.''
* Taken to extremes in the Literature/{{Foundation}} series. The members of the Second Foundation have the ability to telepathically detect and alter emotions, but can't actually read minds. Nevertheless, they are all so thoroughly acquainted with one another's minds that they can have entire conversations based almost solely on facial expressions and body language, saying more than an occasional word is considered superfluous.
* An amusing variation in ''Literature/JudgeDee'': While interviewing a possible suspect (an antiques collector), the judge passes his lieutenant as a connoisseur himself. The suspect eagerly asks him his opinion on a new piece of he has doubts on. The unfortunate lieutenant pulls off an expression of such disgust that the guy says he thought it was a fake, but he didn't think it was so obvious.
* The little girls in Creator/ZilphaKeatleySnyder's novels often give each other communicative looks, demonstrating the almost-ESP said girls experience when together. Ivy and Martha do this a few times in ''Literature/TheChangeling'', usually over the real-world confirmation of an element in their imaginary games. In ''Literature/TheEgyptGame'', April and Melanie look at each other this way when something strikes them as particularly appropriate for Egypt. Toby grouses that it's "like they have Siamese brains or something". When Pomma and Teera in the ''Literature/GreenSkyTrilogy'' do this, sometimes they actually are communicating telepathically.
* In one segment of Literature/WorldWarZ, a mercenary discusses with the author how he met a celebutante's dog and they shot each other looks in the middle of a firefight that conveyed the message, "What about your master?" with the reply being, "What about yours?", and the final reply "Fuck 'em".

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* ''Radio/OurMissBrooks'': In "Home Cooked Meal", Miss Brooks' facial expressions as Mr. Conklin is about to light a match in a gas filled room . . . .
* The page quote comes from an episode of ''Series/BabylonFive''. After Ivanova told Delenn that Sheridan had been "carrying on cranky", Delenn (being a Minbari, mostly fluent in English but not a native speaker) tried to look up the word "cranky", only to be given the runaround as she got shunted from one synonym to another. Finally, partway into a conversation with Sheridan, she finally got it just by looking at his rather grumpy expression.
* Simon Tam did this a lot in ''Series/{{Firefly}}'', particularly with his sister. It's probably genetic.
** After Simon's ''very'' awesome moment in the operating room in "Ariel", River gives Jayne this ''very'' glowing smile that all but says "''[[BigBrotherWorship That's]]'' [[BigBrotherWorship my brother!]]"
* Almost every character on ''Series/WhiteCollar'' is capable of pulling this trope off. Quite a lot of Neal/Peter and Neal/Mozzie interaction is entirely facial expressions.
* ''Series/StargateSG1'':
** Creator/ChristopherJudge as Teal'c was the master of unspoken dialogue.
** Parodied in a supposed "flashback" in the episode "200". While he and [[{{Invisibility}} an invisible O'Neill]] are walking down a corridor (O'Neill's location is given away by the floating coffee mug he's drinking from), O'Neill makes a comment about being invisible which Teal'c responds to with his usual stare. Since he can't see O'Neill's response, Teal'c remarks after a moment, "I assume I am staring at you [[TheStoic stoically]]."
** Gets a LampshadeHanging in an earlier episode where Daniel describes, in his normal [[MotorMouth mile-a-minute delivery]], a non-vocal conversation he'd had with Teal'c moments earlier.
* This is supposedly what got Peter Tork selected as a member of Music/TheMonkees. He didn't speak during his interview, just communicated with over-the-top facial expressions.
* Series/{{Merlin}} and Arthur talk in looks a ''lot'', even when they're speaking out loud. Put any of their scenes on mute and you'll get the idea and it will still be almost just as funny.
** Merlin's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LOrqOELpdIU#t=0m48s face]] at 0:52.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sGURy23xyLg This scene]] from the same episode. They have their entire conversation silently and almost leave it at that until Arthur decides to verbalize it anyway -- probably because he felt Merlin wasn't embarrassed enough.
* The "telepathic conversations" on ''Series/HowIMetYourMother''. Although we hear what the characters are thinking, you can still get the gist of it just by the expressions alone. They are occasionally subverted when the other doesn't get it.
** In "Bachelor Party", Robin attempts to convey an important message to Lily with facial expressions, and Lily interprets it as a request for a tampon.
** Ted and Stella agree they have to help Stella's sister who was dumped right before her wedding. Ted thinks they agreed on paying for her dinner. Stella thought that the facial dialogue was about taking her wedding venue and getting married instead of them.
** In "Doppelgängers", everyone else is having a telepathic conversation about Ted's hairstyle, and Ted's voiceover says, "What are we talking about? Nachos?"
* According to the writers of ''Series/YesMinister'', during filming Paul Eddington would deviate from the script by replacing his lines with an expression. He was so good at this that in later episodes they actually annotated the script with "[[HarpoDoesSomethingFunny Paul doesn't have to say this line if he doesn't want to]]" where they expected this to work. An exceptional example is [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I9NifqJyDMI when he finds out his predecessor, who was about to publish some embarrassing memoirs, has unexpectedly died]]. The brief worry, then joy, then abrupt attempt to look sad is something to behold.
* Used in ''Series/EverybodyHatesChris''. While narrating, Chris says that his parents would try not to fight around them, but they did have their fights through facial expressions.
* In the ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' episode "Allegiance", Picard and a handful of other random aliens are abducted by aliens for the purpose of study (because they communicate only with telepathy and wish to study other forms of communication). When Picard turns the tables on his captors, they return him to the ''Enterprise,'' but before they leave the bridge, Picard and the crew, communicating with only subtle facial expressions, trap the aliens in a forcefield to show them what it feels like to be imprisoned. Picard makes a point of the fact that he and the crew communicated this way.
* The scripts for ''Series/{{Frontline}}'' frequently had lines in parentheses if they were intended to be implicit in facial expressions or body language.
* ''Series/DoctorWho'':
** The Tenth Doctor and Donna Noble play this trope for laughs in "Partners in Crime". They are both spying on the episode's villain by looking through adjacent windows, the villain's office between them, and catch each other's eye. A conversation follows using comically exaggerated expressions, lip reading and mime. The conversation ends when Donna gestures to the villain, who, it turns out, has been watching them embarrass themselves and simply asks, "Are we interrupting you?"
** Thanks to Creator/PeterCapaldi and Creator/JennaColeman having very expressive faces, the Doctor and Clara Oswald often engage in this. ''Spectacular'' examples can be found in the episodes "The Caretaker", "Under the Lake" and "Hell Bent".
* Mulder and Scully of ''Series/TheXFiles'' are infamous for this ability. Already masters at the HeldGaze and LongingLook, most scenes have an embedded layer of subtext within the facial expressions. It makes their relationship look very intimate and almost make an onlooker feel as though they've walked in on something they shouldn't have.
* ''Series/GreysAnatomy'' has a good conversation between George and Izzy. After waking up with an alcoholic blackout of the night before, Izzy remembers George cheating on his wife with her, but George doesn't. Later on, George's memory comes back, and he and Izzy share an entire conversation without speaking.
* The first episode of ''Series/{{Bugs}}'', courtesy of voice-triggered bombs.
* ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'':
** "Hush" features demons that steal all of the voices in Sunnydale. Although the cast sometimes use handwriting, they also rely on this trope out of necessity.
** There's also the scene in season 5 where Buffy and Giles have a long discussion about him dressing up in a RobeAndWizardHat for the opening of the Magic Box without either of them uttering a single word.
* ''Series/HoratioHornblower'', second installment "Mutiny" and "Retribution": Many characters exchange significant looks when they cannot talk freely. Usually it's because they are in front of their superiors, one of those is InsaneAdmiral who loses his ability to control his crew. It heavily overlaps with MeaningfulLook, but some of the conveyed messages were rather complex.
** Hornblower signals to 1st Lt. Buckland that he shouldn't interfere with crazy Captain Sawyer and that he should carry out his order to arrest all the other lieutenants, him including.
** Their Spanish adversaries and prisoners, Senor and Senora Ortega share a worried look after they were forced to the unconditional surrender. We later find out its meaning. He wanted her to pull TheVamp and FemmeFatale, and she obliged. She pretended she was interested in having sex and killed one stupid RedShirt, and the Spanish prisoners took over the ship.
* Charlie Young does this a lot in ''Series/TheWestWing''. Since he's not one of the senior staff and thus not usually a participant in the complex policy discussions, but he is always with the President, his reaction to a lot of situations and crises (petty or dramatic) is done silently.
* A ''Series/HarryAndPaul'' skit "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rnCD1P_P3aA Eeny Miney Minie Mole]]" has two [[Literature/TheQuestForKarla George Smileys]] (from the [[Series/TinkerTailorSoldierSpy 1979 miniseries]] and the [[Film/TinkerTailorSoldierSpy 2011 film]]) competing to see which one should remain employed by [=MI5=].
-->'''Alec Guinness Smiley:''' Might I suggest a solution? A contest, to see which one of us looks the most disappointed with the world.\\
'''Gary Oldman Smiley:''' Whilst at the same time, suggesting a hinterland of other interests.
* The frequent use of this in ''Series/{{Eastenders}}'' is mocked by Creator/CharlieBrooker in ''Weekly Wipe'', in which he describes most of the inhabitants of Albert Square as "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DbTvfol4LwQ#t=1004 communicating in some sort of weird silent theatre of the mind]]".
* Gibbs's functional mute characterization on ''Series/{{NCIS}}'' partly comes from Mark Harmon choosing to not say his lines during the show's early seasons and react to his co-stars through facial expressions. This turned Gibbs from being merely a gruff authority figure into someone who famously has no patience for the extraneous.
* ''Series/GenerationKill'': In the second episode, ''Cradle of Civilization'', [[TheNeidermeyer Encino Man]] announces over the radio that the convoy got lost because Colbert took a wrong turn (omitting the fact that Encino Man ordered him to take that turn despite his protest that it was the wrong road). Colbert keys the mike on his radio to say something in response, but [[Film/AnOfficerAndAGentleman Lieutenant Fick]] makes [[HeldGaze eye contact]] with him and shakes his head, silently convincing Colbert to let it drop rather than get himself in trouble by mouthing off to the Captain.
* ''Series/GameOfThrones'':
** The very first episode has old friends Ned and Robert meeting again for the first time in years. The first words Robert, a classic AdiposeRex, says to Ned? [[HypocriticalHumor "You've got fat."]] Ned replies by giving Robert a once-over and raising his eyebrows, a perfect nonverbal, "Look who's talking."
** The Small Council scenes are full of this, with special note going to Creator/ConlethHill's Varys, who manages to snark without saying a word, and [[FunnyBackgroundEvent spotting his facial expressions]] in the background as other characters are talking has become an unofficial sport among fans. In [[Recap/GameOfThronesS3E10Mhysa "Mhysa"]] everyone reacts to Joffrey mouthing off to Tywin with a variation on an [[OhCrap oh shit expression]], but each with different connotations.
** After losing his hand, whenever someone starts to bring up the subject of his incest and parenthood, even if indirectly, Jaime usually produces a begging "Please don't" wounded gaze.
** In the Blu-ray commentaries, showrunners Benioff and Weiss...rather bluntly admit that they're obsessed with this. To the point that they admit, word for word, that most of the storylines they went off-book for were purely because they're in awe that their own cast members (professional actors) are capable of emoting a range of meanings non-verbally with their facial muscles. As in ''everything that happened to Dorne'' for Season 5 onwards was justified as "don't you want to see Indira Varma (Ellaria) making an angry face?" Deciding to truncate Stannis's story then kill him off? They wanted the Stannis actor to give a ''great'' Facial Dialogue scene when he dies. They don't even hide it by Season 7: the post-episode behind the scenes videos, if you pay attention, are filled with the showrunners just...ranting about closeups on the core cast members' faces, emoting at the camera. Right before Season 7 was released, someone figured out that the Emmy Awards website keeps an archive of any episode that ever won an award, i.e. episode 5.10 and 6.9, which meant we finally got to see their filming instructions in the script: they're filled with...hyper-detailed, lengthy descriptions of a sentence or two's worth of meaning that they intend to get across in just the actor's face with no dialogue. Things such as "Daenerys shoots the slaver a look that says, 'No, motherf--ker, my reign of terror has only just begun". Ask yourself: how ''would'' someone emote that? In theory?
* On ''Series/ThirtyRock'', the male writers are using Jenna to get invited to a gay Halloween party. After she informs a gay friend of hers of this, this exchange follows.
-->'''Gay friend:''' Girl, I don't even have the energy to tell you what's happening here, so read my face.\\
'''Jenna:''' ''[{{beat}}; {{gasp}}s]'' Oh my God! They're using me to get invited to Gay Halloween so they can meet hot girls!
* In ''Series/{{Proof}}'', one flashback shows the Barliss family about to enter the church for Will's funeral. As Len and Sophie are about to go in, Cat is just standing outside, and her anguish and guilt are written all over her face. Len immediately understands that she's suffering too much to be able to face her dead son, and he and Sophie go in without her.
* Parodied in ''Series/JaneTheVirgin'' where Jane and Raphael try and stop talking, just try to read each other's facial expressions. Raphael twitches his nose because it itches, and Jane mistakes it for a sign.
* In the first episode of ''Series/CimarronStrip'', Marshal Crown and jailed gang member Rocky exchange glances. Crown's face says, "I'll get the information of who you're working for out of you yet", while Rocky's face reads, "Not on my watch, you'll see."

* The Music/WeirdAlYankovic song "Jackson Park Express" is about a man riding the bus who thinks he is having an increasingly detailed and bizarre conversation with the girl in the seat across the aisle from him using only this. It ends when the girl (who probably had no clue what was going on in the guy's head) reaches her stop and gets off the bus.

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=txIrDNOJcj8 In this song]], ''Theatre/{{Carmen}}'' doesn't have any words, but body language can be used in scenes like this to add more characterization. This production (from the Met Opera, filmed in 2010) takes it above and beyond -- she goes through several different emotions and realizations in this time.

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* Shows up in [[http://www.somethingpositive.net/sp08112005.shtml this]] strip of ''WebComic/SomethingPositive''.
* Webcomic/{{Nodwick}} has apparently gotten so good at this that he can send fairly complex messages to Piffany from a distance based on how he grimaces.
* Used extensively in ''Webcomic/TheBullysBully'' because it's a textless web comic.
* Done twice between Kirby and Dedede in ''Webcomic/BrawlInTheFamily''.
* A silent, two-person FlatWhat, [[http://collar6.tumblr.com/post/138236139345 courtesy of]] ''Webcomic/Collar6''.

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'': For unknown reasons, [[TheVoiceless the mute Freedom Fighter Longshot]] does this all the time. He's understood by his companions through his eyes and facial expressions, which ([[FridgeLogic somehow]]) indicate his thoughts and viewpoints on particular subjects. [[spoiler:[[SuddenlyVoiced He doesn't talk at all until Jet is killed]], and even then, only says less than fifteen words.]]
* A Season 7 episode of ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' gives us [[https://derpibooru.org/1424871 one such moment]], where Maud quietly signals to Starlight with her eyes that they should move on before Pinkie Pie can cause any more trouble, a sentiment that Starlight clearly agrees with.
