'''Please don't hide spoilers in this page. WhamLine is a spoileriffic trope by nature, so it's pointless to spoiler tag every example.'''


[[folder:Marvel Cinematic Universe]]
* ''Film/{{Iron Man|1}}'':
** Obadaiah Stane reveals himself as Tony's TreacherousAdvisor:
--> "Tony, who do you think locked you out? I was the one who filed the injunction against you."
** Throughout the film, Phil Coulson struggles with introducing his department as the [[OverlyLongName Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement, and Logistics Division]]. At the end of the film, he shortens it with: "Just call us ComicBook/{{SHIELD}}."
** "The truth is... I am ''ComicBook/IronMan''." It's not the line itself, but the fact that Tony Stark delivered it ''in front of a live audience'', signaling the MCU's departure from the "secret identity" subplots of the comics.
** And of course, the line that founded the entire Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse and changed comic book movies forever:
--> "You think you're the only superhero in the world? Mr. Stark, you've become part of a bigger universe. You just don't know it yet. [I'm] ComicBook/NickFury, Director of SHIELD. I'm here to talk to you about the [[Film/TheAvengers2012 Avenger Initiative]]."
* In ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger'', [[ComicBook/RedSkull Schmidt]] is explaining to the SS officers [[StupidJetpackHitler his developments for a powerful weapon]] when one officer notices the map of locations Schmidt intends to destroy.
-->'''SS officer''': [[EvilerThanThou Berlin is on this map!]]
* In TheStinger of ''Film/ThorTheDarkWorld'', we get these lines:
-->'''Volstagg:''' It would not be wise to have two infinity stones so close together.
-->'''The Collector:''' One down, five to go.
* ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier'':
** Steve discovers the Winter Soldier's identity:
--->'''Steve:''' ...Bucky?\\
'''The Winter Soldier:''' Who the hell is Bucky?
** Steve then discovers the extent of Hydra's influence:
--->'''Arnim Zola''': [[MeaningfulEcho Cut off one head, two more shall take its place.]]
*** Leading into that one, there's the exchange that proved that ''nothing'' from the comics was too weird to make it into the films:
--->'''Captain America:''' Arnim Zola was a German scientist who worked for the Red Skull. He's been dead for years.
--->'''Voice from nearby computer:''' [[BrainUploading First correction: I am Swiss]].
** Two lines that threw the entire past few films into perspective:
--->'''Arnim Zola''': ''(as a newspaper headline detailing Howard and Maria Stark's car crash appears)'' Accidents... will happen.
--->'''Senator Howard Stern''': ''[whispering]'' Hail Hydra.
* ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy'':
** A glimpse at the reasons behind Rocket's attitude:
-->'''Rocket:''' I didn't ask to get made!
** The main characters deliver the MacGuffin to their client and find out what it really is.
--> '''The Collector:''' Oh, my new friends. Before creation itself, there were six singularities. And when the universe exploded into existence, the remnants of these systems were forged into concentrated ingots. The Infinity Stones.
** "We are Groot."[[note]]The first and only time Groot ever said anything other than "I am Groot", right before his HeroicSacrifice. [[/note]]
** As the Ravagers leave the Guardians:
--> '''Kraglin''': Yeah, Quill turned out okay. Probably good we didn't deliver him to his dad like we were hired to.
--> '''Yondu''': That guy was a ''jackass!'' [[note]][[Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxyVol2 He wasn't kidding.]][[/note]]
* ''Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar'':
** During Steve and Bucky's conversation about Helmut Zemo:
--> '''Bucky:''' He wanted to know about Siberia. Where I was kept. He wanted to know exactly where.\\
'''Steve:''' Why would he need to know that?\\
'''Bucky:''' ...because [[ThereIsAnother I'm not the only Winter Soldier]].
** When Zemo starts playing the video from 1991:
--> '''Tony:''' I know that road.
* In ''Film/DoctorStrange2016'', about the true nature of the Eye of Agamotto:
--> '''Wong''': In time, you will learn its secrets. But until then, it's best to leave it here. It's not wise to walk down the street carrying [[ArcWelding an Infinity Stone]].
* ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxyVol2'':
** Ego reveals the answer to a major question in the last film on his first appearance.
--->'''Ego:''' I'm your dad, Peter.
** A second from Ego is when Peter and him are talking about Peter's mom.
--->'''Ego:''' I returned to Earth to see her three times, and I knew if I returned a fourth, I...I'd never leave. The expansion...the reason for my existence would be over so I did what I had to do. But...it broke my heart to put that tumor in her head.
** During one of the post credit sequences, it's revealed that Ayesha is carrying a sinister looking cocoon-like pod on her ship that has a person slowly being formed inside.
-->'''Ayesha:''' I think I shall call him... [[ComicBook/AdamWarlock Adam.]]
* ''Film/SpiderManHomecoming'':
** At one point, when Peter rapidly tries to hold a ferry split in half together by running weblines between structural strongpoints, Karen says "Well done, Peter. You were 98% successful." Turns out he missed one last one, and the ferry falls apart anyway.
** This line at the ending from one of Peter's classmates, Michelle.
-->''"My friends call me [[Comicbook/MaryJaneWatson M]][[CompositeCharacter J.]]"''
* ''Film/ThorRagnarok'':
** When Hela has Thor pinned to the balcony; unarmed, wounded and overpowered, Thor has a vision of Odin with the revelation that defines his powers. "What are you, Thor? God of hammers?"
* ''Film/AvengersInfinityWar''
** After Thor impales him in the chest:
-->'''Thanos:''' You should have aimed for the head. [[note]]Thanos's PreMortemOneLiner before he [[BadassFingersnap snaps away]] [[ApocalypseHow half the]] [[DownerEnding universe]].[[/note]]
** Peter Parker's survival seemed to be a ForegoneConclusion, as [[PlotArmor two more Spider-Man movies had already been announced]]. But then...
--> '''Peter:''' Mister Stark? I don't feel so good...

[[folder:''Star Trek'']]
* In ''Film/StarTrekIITheWrathOfKhan'', there are three, relatively close to one another.
** The first is when Chekhov and his team are examining a ship's wreckage on the planet under consideration as a test site for the Genesis Device, and he comes across a belt buckle with the name "Botany Bay" written on it
--->[Confused, and slightly worried] "...Botany Bay?" *[[OhCrap Realization hits.]]* "Botany Bay! Oh no...!" *full blown panic* "We've got to get out of here now!"
** This is followed shortly, by Khan confronting Chekhov, and explaining the dire situation he and his men face, and features two by Khan himself:
--->'''Khan''': ''Admiral'' Kirk... sent seventy of us into exile on this barren sand heap with only the contents of these cargo bays to sustain us.\\
'''Chekhov''': You lie! On Ceti Alpha V, there was life! A fighting chance-\\
'''Khan''': ''[[SuddenlyShouting THIS]]'' [[TheReveal IS CETI ALPHA V!]] (long pause) [[ApocalypseHow ...Ceti Alpha VI... exploded six months after we were left here. The shock shifted the orbit of this planet, and everything was laid waste.]]
** After further explaining the situation to them, however, Khan suddenly raises a hand, and his expression changes from on of confusion, to epiphany, to elation, as he says:
---> "[[EurekaMoment ...You didn't expect to find me; you thought this was... Ceti Alpha VI]]. Ah! Why are you here?" *grabs the collar of Chekhov's suit, and lifts him into the air one handed* "''Why''?"
** Arguably, the moment that really changes the tone of the movie is Uhura's line:
---> '''Uhura:''' Admiral, Commander Reliant is signaling. He wishes to discuss terms of our surrender.
** Also, who can forget this gem from Kirk:
--->"[[MagnificentBastard I don't believe in the no-win scenario]]."
** And lastly, while the audience already knows about Spock's sacrifice, it certainly counts as one to Kirk:
--->'''Kirk''': Engine room, well done, Scotty.\\
'''Bones''': [[TearJerker Jim... I think you'd better get down here]].\\
'''Kirk''': Bones?\\
(''the screen flashes to Spock's chair, which is empty'')\\
'''Bones''': ...Better hurry.
* In ''Film/StarTrekIVTheVoyageHome'' after the trial the crew wonder what ship they'll get to replace the destroyed ''Enterprise'', and reason that it will probably be ''Excelsior''. The shuttle heads for the ''Excelsior'' .... then as we hear the familiar fanfare, goes around it to reveal the ''Enterprise-A''.
-->'''Kirk''': My friends.....we've come home.
* ''Film/StarTrekVITheUndiscoveredCountry'' has possibly the most obvious one in the series.
-->'''Kirk:''' What's happened?!\\
'''Spock:''' [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness We have fired on the Chancellor's ship!!]]
* From ''Film/StarTrekFirstContact'', as the ''Enterprise'' travels back in time and notice Earth's appearance has changed.
-->'''Data:''' (''reading sensors'') Population: approximately 9 billion... all Borg.
* In ''Film/StarTrekInsurrection'', when Picard realizes what the metaphasic radiation is doing to him and the crew, he beams down to ask the Ba'ku:
-->'''Picard:''' How old are you?
** Later, Picard reveals a startling discovery to Admiral Dougherty:
--->'''Picard:''' Didn't you know, Admiral? The Son'a and the Ba'ku are the same race.
* In [[Film/StarTrek the 2009 movie]], before Vulcan gets consumed by a Romulan-made black hole.
-->'''Chekov''': Captain, the gravitational sensors are off the scale. If my calculations are correct, they're creating a [[ApocalypseHow singularity...]] [[ExplainExplainOhCrap that will... consume the planet.]]
* Another ''Franchise/StarTrek'' example comes from ''Film/StarTrekIntoDarkness'', wherein the main antagonist gives this.
-->'''John Harrison''': "John Harrison" was a fiction invented the moment I was awoken by your Admiral Marcus to help him advance his cause. A smokescreen to conceal my true identity. My name... is... ''Khan''.
** And one mirroring one of the ''Wrath Of Khan'' examples above:
---> '''Scotty:''' [[ContinuityNod Commander Spock... I think you better get down here. You better hurry.]]

* ''Film/AcrossTheUniverse:'' Lucy has seemingly decided between her two suitors, main character Jude and [[RebelLeader firebrand activist Paco]], choosing the latter. One night, however, she happens to open a door in the activist group's headquarters and discovers a dirty secret they're hiding:
-->'''Paco:''' [[OhCrap Close the door]].
-->'''Lucy:''' [[EvilVersusEvil ...I thought it was the OTHER side]] [[TheRevolutionWillNotBeCivilized who dropped bombs]].
* ''Film/{{Airplane}}''
** "Every passenger on this plane who had fish for dinner will become violently ill in the next half hour." ([[WhamShot Captain looks at his dinner plate where he just ate a whole fish]])
** "By the way, does anyone here know how to fly a plane?"
* In ''Film/AllAboutEve'', the audience is initially led to sympathise with Eve and feel sorry for her. Even when she seems to have betrayed Margo's trust, her apology ''seems'' sincere. That is, until Karen asks her if there's anything she can do...
-->'''Eve:''' There ''is'' something you can do. Something most important.
* ''Film/AmericanGraffiti'': After the drag race, John tells Toad, "I was losing, man. He had me!"
** And the [[WhereAreTheyNow epilogue]] has one hell of a WhamLine: John Milner was killed by a drunk driver in December 1964.
* ''Film/ApartmentZero'': "We're not looking for any particular face here, there is no recognizable look to the killer. He could be anyone. Perhaps someone you know. Someone in your family. Someone you work with. Someone you trust. ''Even your next door neighbor.'' "
* ''Film/{{Apollo 13}}'':
** "Houston, we are venting something out into space." This is the point where everyone realizes that, yes, the spacecraft is having ''real'' problems--it's not just the instrumentation.
** [[MemeticMutation "Houston, we have a problem"]] is the best-known, but also "One whole side of the spacecraft is missing. Right by the high gain antenna, a whole panel is blown out, right up... Right up to our heat shield", which really makes everyone worry that [[ShootTheShaggyDog all their efforts may have been for nothing.]]
* ''Film/{{Arrival}}'': "Who is this child?" The moment the audience realizes Louise's visions of her dead daughter aren't flash''backs'' but flash''forwards''.
* In ''[[Film/AustinPowers Austin Powers in Goldmember]]'' when Nigel prevents Austin from shooting Dr. Evil.
-->'''Austin:''' Dr. Evil's not your son! I am!
-->'''Nigel:''' No. [[LongLostRelative You both are]].
* ''Film/BabyDriver'': "That's not the cops!" Marks the point where Baby realizes that Buddy is still alive, in a cop car facing down him, Debora and Doc, and is now coming for them.
* In Creator/TimBurton's ''Film/{{Batman}}'': Not apparent to the audience at first, the Joker's favorite PreMortemOneLiner serves as this to Bruce. They were the same words the mugger said to young Bruce after murdering his parents.
-->'''Joker:''' Ever dance with the devil in the pale moonlight?
* ''Film/BatmanReturns'': Bruce and Selina blow each other's identity thanks to this exchange they make twice.
-->"They say mistletoe is deadly if you eat it."\\
"But a kiss can be even deadlier if you mean it."
* ''Film/BattleLosAngeles'' has one for the Marines while they are getting briefed on the "meteor shower." "These objects are not falling at terminal velocity. ''They are slowing down.''"
* ''Film/BigGame'': Hazar's "If it makes you feel better, we're on the same side." Said to the man he's hunting down to torture, kill and stuff him.
* ''Film/CabinFever'': Paul enters the room and sits with his depressed friend Marcy.
-->'''Marcy:''' We're all gonna get [the disease]. We're all gonna get sick.\\
'''Paul:''' No. Bert's gonna get help. Karen will be fine, I promise.\\
'''Marcy:''' It's like being on a plane when you know it's gonna crash. Everyone around you is yelling and screaming: ''"We're going down! We're going down!"'' '''And all you really want to do is grab the person next to you and [[OutWithABang fuck the shit out of them, 'cause you know you're gonna be dead soon anyway.]]'''\\
* ''Film/{{Carrie|2013}}'': After Carrie's [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge murderous rampage]], killing many of her classmates and her [[AbusiveParents abusive mother]], Carrie's friend Sue tries to calm her down. In response, Carrie uses her MindOverMatter abilities to strangle her, and it seems that Carrie will finally cross the line in morality... only for her to let Sue go. The reason?
-->'''Carrie:''' It's a girl.
* ''Film/{{Charade}}'':
** Cary Grant's character pursues one of the villains across the balconies and finds him discussing his plans with his two co-conspirators, who are telling him what he just did was a "dumb move". Grant pushes his way into the room and says:
--->"Yes, it was a dumb move, Herman! What is the matter with you???"
** By the end of the movie, Reggie's convinced that Carson Dyle is dead, her friend Peter is a murderer, and Mr. Bartholomew is the only man she can trust. With this in mind, she's running away from Peter, towards Mr. Bartholomew, when Peter suddenly cries:
--->"Reggie, wait!!! That man is Carson Dyle!"
* ''Film/CharliesAngels'':
-->'''Dylan:''' ''[spelling with Scrabble letters]'' Enemy.
-->'''Knox:''' ''[kisses her]'' [[EvilAllAlong I know]].
* ''Franchise/ChildsPlay'':
** The [[Film/ChildsPlay first movie]] didn't really have a WhamLine per se, but the first words to ever come out of Chucky's mouth shocked many audience members the first time.
---> You stupid BITCH!!! You filthy slut, I'll teach you to FUCK WITH ME!!!
** The sequel ''Film/CurseOfChucky'' has a Wham Line but not by Chucky itself. At one point the innocent child says: "Chucky says life's a bitch, and then you die like a stuck pig".
* ''Film/{{Chinatown}}'':
** "She's my sister AND my daughter! [[ParentalIncest My father and I]]... do you understand?"
** Less [[ItWasHisSled famously]], "Salt water very bad for [[JapaneseRanguage glass]]".
* ''Film/TheCiderHouseRules'':
** Homer and Candy discover that Rose Rose the apple-picker is pregnant and is considering an abortion. Candy tries to talk to Rose about it but she refuses to name the father. Her father, Arthur, comes in and Rose's submissive attitude around him lets Candy put two and two together by the next scene:
-->"[[ParentalIncest He is the father! He's her baby's father!]]"
* ''CloudAtlas'': "They feed us to ourselves."
* ''Film/{{Clue}}'':
** '''Wadsworth:''' I shot her.
** "[Mr. Boddy's] secret? Oh, haven't you guessed? He's the one who's blackmailing you."
* ''Film/TheConspirator'': "There should only be three," referring to the number of nooses on the gallows. Easy to see coming if you know the historical events the film's based on, but still a WhamLine.
* ''Film/TheConversation'' by Creator/FrancisFordCoppola has an interesting variant on this: a WhamLine that turns on which word a character stresses in the sentence "He'd kill us if he had the chance."
* From ''Film/CSATheConfederateStatesOfAmerica'':
--> '''Horace''': Me and Fauntroy... we kin!
* ''Film/{{Conspiracy}}'' at the Wannsee Conference when Heydrich proposed the FinalSolution:
--> '''Kritzinger:''' Purge the Jews, yes. But to annihilate them - that we have undertaken to systematically annihilate all the Jews of Europe - that possibility has been [[PlausibleDeniability denied to me]] by [[UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler the Fuhrer]]!"
--> '''Heydrich:''' And it will continue to be.
* ''Film/TheDarkKnightRises'' features several:
** When Bane first comes face-to-face with Batman:
--->'''Bane:''' Let's not stand on ceremony here... Mister Wayne.
** Soon after:
--->'''Bane:''' I will show you where I have made my home, then I will break you. ''[hits a detonator, causing a Tumbler to fall through the ceiling]'' Your precious armory! Gratefully accepted! We will need it. ''[Mercenaries raid Applied Sciences]''
** And later in the film,
--->'''Prisoner''': The child of Ra's al Ghul.
** Before the climax:
--->'''Batman:''' [''about the Pit''] You think you're the only one who could learn the strength to escape it? Where's the trigger?\\
'''Bane:''' But I never escaped.
** In the climax:
--->'''Talia''': But he's not the child. And though I'm not ordinary, I'm a ''citizen''.
** Plus a truly awesome one in the denouement, to Detective John Blake:
--->'''Clerk''': You should use your full name. I like that name: Robin.
* ''Film/DeadAgain'': "I never meant to hurt you, Margaret." A bit unusual in that it's not the line so much as *who* says it.
* ''Derailed'': "Laroche, I chose this prison." Made even better in that it comes shortly after a wham moment when the viewer finds out that Charles unluckily got "placed" in the same prison as Laroche.
* ''Film/DirtyRottenScoundrels'':
** Lawrence and Freddy discover they've been played all along by their mark:
--> "Goodbye boys. I'll miss you. Love, [[EvilAllAlong Janet]], [[ChekhovsGunman the Jackal]]."
* ''Film/{{Downfall}}'': "Steiner couldn't raise enough men for the assault. Steiner's attack was not successful." Cue Hitler's infamous rant.
* ''Film/DraculaUntold'': In the epilogue:
-->'''Blonde Woman:''' I'm [[Literature/{{Dracula}} Mina]].
* ''Film/DragMeToHell'': "I've found your button."
* ''Film/EdgeOfTomorrow'': "Come find me when you wake up" reveals that Rita knows ''exactly'' what's happening to Cage.
* ''Film/ErinBrockovich'': "Would it be important if, [[ChekhovsGunman when I worked at the plant, I destroyed documents?"]]
* ''Film/EternalSunshineOfTheSpotlessMind'': Both because it completely changes how two characters are presented and because it serves as {{Foreshadowing}} for two more:
-->'''Hollis:''' Don't be a monster, Howard. Tell the poor girl. You can have him. You did.
* From the movie ''Film/{{Explorers}}'': "Ehhhh, what's up, Doc?"
* From ''[[Film/TheFastAndTheFurious Fast & Furious 6]]'':
--> '''Deckard Shaw:''' Dominic Toretto? You don't know me. But you're about to.
* ''Film/AFewGoodMen'':
** "If you ordered Santiago not to be touched, and your orders are always followed, then [[ArmorPiercingQuestion why would it be necessary for him to be transferred off the base?]]"
** [-'''Kaffee:''' Did you order the code red?-]\\
[-'''Jessup:''' I did the job I--]\\
[-'''Kaffee:''' ''DID YOU ORDER THE CODE RED?!''-]\\
[-'''Jessup:''' ''YOU'RE GODDAMN RIGHT I DID!''-]
* ''Film/FightClub'':
** Plays with this with the repeated line, "It's called a changeover. The movie goes on, and nobody in the audience has any idea." While this line appears earlier in the movie in reference to a projectionist inserting subliminal porn into movies, it's repeated by the narrator later in a fourth-wall breaking manner at a critical moment that the protagonist (and we, the audience) are starting to realise that certain things we'd taken for granted have actually all been delusions suffered by our protagonist and that we therefore have to go back and re-interpret the film so-far.
** There are a multitude of lines in the film that hint at TheReveal:
*** "Why do you think I blew up your condo?"
*** "Is that a pretty accurate description of our relationship, [[NarratorAllAlong Tyler]]?"
*** "You're Tyler Durden."
* ''Film/GetOut2017'': Rose Armitage reveals whose side she's really on when Chris tries to escape the Armitage house.
--> '''Rose:''' [[BitchInSheepsClothing You know I can't let you have the keys, babe.]]
* ''Film/Ghostbusters2016'': TheStinger at the very end of the credits:
--> '''Patty:''' ''[listening to EVP recording]'' ...[[SequelHook what's]] [[CanonWelding Zuul]]?
* ''Film/GIJoeTheRiseOfCobra'':
-->'''Rex:''' The time has come for [[TitleDrop the Cobra to rise]]. You will call me... '''Commander'''.
* In ''Film/GirlInterrupted'', [[TheSociopath Lisa]] asks Daisy how her father helps her cope with her mental issues.
-->'''Daisy:''' My father loves me.\\
'''Lisa:''' I bet. With [[ParentalIncest every inch of his manhood]].\\
''(A minute later)''\\
'''Lisa''': And everybody knows that he fucks you. What they don't know is that you like it. ''You like it.''
* ''The Girl with All the Gifts'', when the [[OurZombiesAreDifferent non-human protagonist]], who had been experimented on and generally dehumanized the entire movie, is considering whether to make a heroic sacrifice to save all of humanity:
-->"'Subject's Responses: Exquisite mimicry of observed behaviors, question-mark'. Do you still believe that, Doctor Caldwell?"
-->"Melanie, I--"\\
"Do you?"\\
"We're alive?"\\
"Yes. You're alive."\\
[[TheDogBitesBack "Then why should it be us who die for you?"]]
* In ''Film/TheGodfather'', Part I: "It was Barzini all along".
** In ''Part II'' "It wasn't a miscarriage. It was an abortion."
* In the case of ''Film/GodzillaVsDestoroyah'', it was its tagline: [[TonightSomeoneDies "On December 24,]] [[TheHeroDies Godzilla Dies."]]
* After Dr. Miranda Grey in ''Film/{{Gothika}}'' speculates about the psychological profile of a culprit trying to cover his tracks, this line by Doug's accomplice leaves zero doubt about the culprit's true nature and that Miranda's life is in danger.
-->'''Sherrif Ryan:''' Well you're right. I do fit the profile. Long-time friend of Doug's, access to the prison. '''I never did get a kick out of torturing animals, though.'''
* ''Film/TheGrandBudapestHotel'': "He [Monsieur Gustave] did not, however, succeed in growing old." 1960s Zero says this of the fate of his old mentor, and we abruptly [[MoodWhiplash careen headlong]] into a SuddenDownerEnding.
* In ''Film/HarryPotter and the Goblet of Fire'', Harry and Moody at the denouement have a conversation about Cedric's fate and Voldemort's return when Moody says something that gives Harry pause, in true INeverSaidItWasPoison fashion:
-->'''Harry Potter:''' I... don't think I mentioned a graveyard, sir.
* Algernon, assistant to the scientist Foot, from Music/TheBeatles movie ''Film/{{Help}}'': "It's more than my job's worth to stop him when he's out like this. He's out to rule the world, if he can get a government grant." Following the revelation that the Beatles made a big mistake getting help from Foot, he saw what the ring that Music/{{Ringo|Starr}} wore could do: "Fantastic! With a ring like that I could--dare I say it--rule the world."
* ''Film/HellraiserInferno'': As Pinhead informs Joseph what has happened, he reveals it in one line:
-->'''Pinhead:''' WelcomeToHell.
* ''Film/{{Holes}}'' has a rare positive example, revealing that Stanley's father has finally made a breakthrough in finding a cure for foot odor. Made even better by the fact that the speaker of said Wham Line doesn't immediately realize what she's just said.
--> '''Stanley Yelnats III:''' Please, smell the shoe.\\
'''Mrs. Yelnats:''' ''(distractedly)'' I don't smell anything.\\
'''Stanley Yelnats III:''' You what?\\
'''Mrs. Yelnats:''' ''(Realization dawns)'' I don't smell anything!
* ''Film/HotelRwanda'': "Cut the tall trees! Cut the tall trees now!" Also doubles as a RealLife wham line since it also marked the beginning of the 1994 Rwandan genocide and the deaths of over ''one million'' civilians.
* ''Film/TheHungerGames'':
** The last line of Gale in ''Film/TheHungerGamesCatchingFire'', during this exchange:
--->'''Katniss:''' Gale? Where's Prim?\\
'''Gale:''' She's alive. So is your mother. I got 'em out in time.\\
'''Katniss:''' Got them out?\\
'''Gale:''' After the Games, they sent in hovercrafts. And they started dropping firebombs.\\
'''Katniss:''' They're not in 12?\\
'''Gale:''' [[YouCantGoHomeAgain There is no District 12. It's all gone.]]
** In ''Film/TheHungerGamesMockingjayPart1'', President Snow delivers one to Katniss at the end of their video conversation, and by extension, to the audience and everyone else from District 13 watching it. Specifically, it reveals that he knows full well about District 13's rescue operation of the victors, despite initially making it seem like he was still oblivious to it.
--->'''President Snow:''' Don't you think I know your friends are in the Tribute Center? ''[To his crew]'' Cut them off.
** In ''Film/TheHungerGamesMockingjayPart2'', while some people might have doubts about Coin being evil, the moment she reveals that she intends to perform a Hunger Games with the Capitol children immediately clears any tone that the scene had in question and starts playing a bit of sinister music as Katniss and the others stew and vote right afterwards.
* In the documentary ''I Am Big Bird: The Caroll Spinney Story'', Caroll mentions that UsefulNotes/{{NASA}} had asked him, since kids weren't that interested in rocket launches, that if he would go on their next flight as Big Bird. It took him and his wife a good long discussion, but he eventually agreed. However, NASA had to decline at the last second because there wasn't enough room for him. This anecdote becomes a lot more poignant once Caroll mentions when they watched the flight on the set of ''Series/SesameStreet'':
-->'''Caroll Spinney:''' [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Space_Shuttle_Challenger_disaster We had heard they were going to bring up a teacher in that flight...]]
* ''Film/JamesBond'':
** From ''Film/{{Goldfinger}}'', Bond has just done a big talk on how Goldfinger can never hope to remove all the gold from Fort Knox before the authorities are on top of him.
--->'''Goldfinger''': Whoever mentioned anything about ''removing'' it?
** During the ColdBloodedTorture scene in ''Film/{{Spectre}}''.
--->'''Franz Oberhauser:''' [[ThatManIsDead Franz Oberhauser died twenty years ago]], James, in an avalanche alongside his father. The man you're talking to now, the man inside your head, is [[HijackedByGanon Ernst Stavro Blofeld]].\\
'''James Bond:''' Catchy name.
* Apparently invoked in the trailer for ''Film/TheJungleBook2016''. We hear a female voice narrating ominously and don't find out who she is until half way through. But even if you can't ''see'' her, any ''Jungle Book'' fan will know who she is [[SomethingOnlyTheyWouldSay based on what she's saying alone]], making TheReveal all the more shocking.
-->'''[[GenderFlip Kaa:]]''' Trussssst...''in me''.
* ''Film/JurassicWorld'' has several of these:
** Early in the film, after [[TagAlongKid Zach and Gray]] leave for the titular park, we have this line implying that their happy family isn't so happy after all...
--->'''Scott:''' So much for our last family breakfast.
** When Owen and his trained raptors finally track down the ''I. rex'', we get this line...
--->'''Owen:''' I know why they wouldn't tell us what it's made of...''that thing's part-raptor.''\\
(''cue the entire raptor squad [[WhamShot giving their former leader a]] DeathGlare'')
** Finally, at the climax, when everything's going insane, Claire has these instructions for Lowery...
--->'''Claire:''' I need you to [[SummonBiggerFish open]] [[TyrannosaurusRex paddock 9!]]
* ''Film/JusticeLeague2017'' saves this for TheStinger as a now freed Lex Luthor meets Deathstroke the Terminator on a yacht to discuss this new band of heroes.
-->'''Luthor''': To put it plainly...shouldn't we have a League of our own?
* Two after the climax of ''Film/KarateWarriors'', both from Chico (Creator/ShinichiChiba). The first, after catching the kid he'd protected for much of the film tossing expensive heroin in the ocean (under the mistaken assumption that they were the ashes of his deceased father), is "You stupid kid, these weren't his ashes!" Then, just over one minute later, Chico proceeds to confess to him, "The way your father died... I want you to know the truth: ''I killed him.''"
* The very last line in ''Film/KillBill Vol. 1'':
-->'''Bill:''' Is she aware that her daughter is still alive?
* ''Film/{{Manborg}}'' has one at the very end, while Manborg is dying from his wounds. He sees a vision of his brother, which turns out pretty formulaic at first:
-->'''Manborg's Brother:''' Hey, bro, it's me, your brother. Remember? [[{{BreakingTheFourthWall}} I died at the beginning.]] I just wanted to let you know that I think you did great out there.\\
'''Manborg:''' ''[smiling]''\\
'''Manborg's Brother:''' There is no heaven.\\
'''Manborg:''' ''[[[{{OhCrap}} smile fades]]]'' No...heaven...?!

::: and
-->'''Leonard''': When it's done, I'll know! It'll be different!\\
'''Teddy''': I thought so too! I was sure you'd remember. But you ''didn't!''
* Towards the end of ''Film/MenInBlack'':
-->'''Kay:''' I haven't been looking for a partner. I've been looking for a replacement.
* ''Film/MidnightRun'' has one right at the very end: "Now say goodbye, you lyin' little piece of shit, because I'm letting him go!"
* And what is ''Film/TheMiracleOfMorgansCreek'' that's got the whole state in such a tizzy? "Six! All boys!"
* Early in ''Film/MissionImpossibleRogueNation'' Ethan uses a record player for his briefing, complete with the usual "Good evening, Mr. Hunt" and "Your mission, choose to accept it"... Only this time, it turns out it's actually the Syndicate giving the briefing, and it's taunting Ethan. It concludes with the usual "this message will self destruct in five seconds" just as gas is released to knock out Ethan before [[BigBad Solomon Lane]] executes a female IMF agent in front of Ethan's eyes.
* This is how the true BigBad of the [[Main/BollywoodMovies Bollywood]] film ''[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mohra Mohra]]'' is revealed:
-->'''Vishal Agnihotri''': ''[After tossing a paperweight at Mr. Jindal, who simply dodges it by sheer luck]'' A blind man cannot defend himself so fast, Mr. Jindal.
* In ''Film/MortalThoughts'', Demi Moore is being interrogated by police about the murder of her best friend's husband. She is asked about the time of an event, and says "when they found my husband's body," revealing for the first time that ''two'' people are dead.
* ''Film/MysteryTeam'': "Let's all just take a chill pill."
* ''Franchise/ANightmareOnElmStreet''
** ''Film/ANightmareOnElmStreet3DreamWarriors''
--->'''Neil:''' Oh my God. You were his mother.
** Another from ''[[Film/ANightmareOnElmStreet3DreamWarriors Dream Warriors]]'' is when the heretofore heroine starts sing-songing the Freddy poem, and when she stumbles on the last line, Nancy, the heroine of the first movie, makes her entrance finishing the rhyme from the doorway.
--->'''Nancy:''' Never sleep again.
** ''Film/FreddysDeadTheFinalNightmare''
--->'''John Doe:''' I know why you let me go.\\
'''Freddy:''' Oh. Do you think I'm your daddy? Mm-mm! Wrong!\\
'''John Doe:''' But you let me live!\\
'''Freddy:''' Only long enough for you to bring me back ''my daughter!''
* ''Film/NoWayOut'': "So were we" near the very end of the film. Not whammy in itself as much as it is for the fact that Farrell says it in ''Russian'', which then prompts his interrogators to switch to that language as well and reveal that not only does "Yuri" exist, Farrell ''is'' Yuri.
* In ''Film/{{Oldboy 2003}}'', Oh Dae-Su confronts the man who imprisoned him for 15 years which leads to this:
-->'''Lee Woo-Jin:''' You keep asking me why I locked you up. You should be asking "Why did I let you out?"
* ''Film/OneFlewOverTheCuckoosNest'': Mac passes a piece of chewing gum to (supposedly) deaf/mute inmate Chief and Chief says "Thank you."
* ''Film/TheOxBowIncident'' is about a {{Posse}} which carries out a VigilanteExecution of the men they suspect of murdering a man named Larry Kinkaid. When they arrive back in town, the Sheriff has this to say:
--> "Larry Kinkaid's not dead."
* ''Film/PacificRimUprising'': Newt and Hermann have forced their way into Shao Industries HQ in order to deal with the little problem of the Shao drones turning into Kaiju hybrids and causing mayhem. Then things go off-track.

* From ''Film/PhantasmIVOblivion'':
-->'''Mike''' So when's he coming back?\\
'''Jody''' Jebediah Morningside [[CameBackWrong never does come back]]...
* In ''Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbeanDeadMansChest'', when the dreaded [[EldritchAbomination Kraken]] approaches the Black Pearl, Elizabeth realizes the bitter truth:
--> '''Elizabeth:''' (''To [[AntiHero Jack Sparrow]]'') It's you it wants, don't you see?
* ''Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbeanAtWorldsEnd'':
** During the meeting of the Brethren Court, the pirate captains vote for who should be the Pirate King. As usual, each captain votes for himself (or herself, in the case of Elizabeth and Mistress Ching). Then Captain Jack Sparrow casually says "Elizabeth Swann", giving Elizabeth two votes, where everyone else has only one, [[SheIsTheKing making her the new Pirate King]].
** "The wind's with us". Said twice, by opposing leaders. Cue the Maelstrom.
* ''Film/PlanesTrainsAndAutomobiles'': Neil Page has finally reached Chicago, so he says his goodbyes to Del Griffith before taking the train home. But during the train ride, Neil remembers something about Del that seems off, so he heads back to the station and finds Del still sitting there.
-->'''Neil:''' Del, what are you still doing here? Why aren't you going home?\\
'''Del:''' I, uh... I don't have a home. [[DeadAllAlong Marie's been dead for eight years.]]
* An in-universe one from ''Film/PlanetOfTheApes1968'': "Get your stinking paws off me, you damn dirty ape!"
* ''Film/ThePrestige'' has two: "A brother? [[AlwaysIdenticalTwins A twin?"]] and the following exchange, though, like the ''Advent Children'' example above, the Wham factor is due to who says the line.
-->'''Borden:''' You must be-\\
'''Angier:''' Lord Caldlow. Yes, I am. I always have been.
* ''Film/PrimalFear'' ends with one ''hell'' of a wham: "[[TheKillerInMe There never was an Aaron, Counselor]]."
** Actually, the ''true'' Wham Line comes a bit earlier, is more subtle and relies on a FridgeBrilliance by both the viewer and the protagonist.
--->'''Aaron:''' Will you t-tell Miss Venable I'm sorry? Tell her I hope her neck is okay.
* ''Film/{{Primer}}'': On the second iteration of the bench scene, "I hope you're not implying that any day is unimportant at Cortex Semi." The words themselves aren't important; what's important is that Aaron says that line even though Abe, exhausted, had failed to say the line it had been a reply to on the first iteration, revealing that Aaron had used a fail-safe and was repeating lines from memory, too.
* When Max and Leo find their guaranteed flop in ''Film/TheProducers'':
-->'''Leo:''' [[SpringtimeForHitler "Springtime for Hitler:]] A Gay Romp Through Berchtesgarden with Adolf and Eva."

* ''Film/{{Rain Man}}'': [[LongLostRelative "Raymond is your brother."]]
* ''Film/RedEye'': "Just keeping the focus on you and your father."
* ''Film/RepoTheGeneticOpera'':
** "You have your mother's eyes, her hair. I was told you died with her." Classic WhamLine example: you don't expect it, it's a major reveal (Nathan's been dressing up his daughter like her dead mom, wig and all, and told his friend she's ''dead''), and it comes in the middle of a song where it's practically glossed over in favor of a much less shocking reveal ("I'm your... godmom").
** Even bigger example: "He's been poisoning your medicine!"
* ''Film/ReservoirDogs'':
-->'''Mr. Orange:''' [[TheMole I'm a cop.]]
-->'''Marvin:''' [[SecretKeeper Yeah, I know!]]
* ''Film/ReturnToOz'':
** "You will be rather attractive, one day, not at all beautiful, you understand, but you have a certain prettiness, different than my other heads...I believe I'll lock you in the tower for a few years, until your head is ready. And then I'll take it."
** "''My'' Ruby Slippers. They just... fell out of the sky one day- you were so anxious to get home. They're ''very'' powerful: they made it possible for me to conquer the Emerald City! [[YourApprovalFillsMeWithShame Thank you.]]"
* ''Film/{{Riddick}}'':
--> '''Mercenary Captain:''' "Name's Johns."
* ''Film/TheRing'': "Why did you help her? You weren't supposed to help her!"
* ''Film/RobinHoodPrinceOfThieves'': "Knowing that...our father loved you more than me." (Emphasis on "our".)
* ''Film/RiseOfThePlanetOfTheApes'': "[[BigNo NOOOOO!!!]]" Caesar the chimpanzee's first spoken word. Also, "Caesar ''is'' home", also spoken by Caesar.

* ''Film/SavingPrivateRyan'':
-->'''Ryan:''' Yes sir, how'd you guess that?
* ''Film/SawI'': After the whole situation is resolved, Leigh Wanell's character finds a tape recorder, left by Zepp, and plays it. "Hello, Mr. Hindle", says Jigsaw, revealing Zepp was just another pawn in the killer's game.
* ''Film/{{Scream|1996}}'' has a few good ones.
-->'''Billy''' We all go a little mad sometimes.
** And then not 4 seconds later...
-->'''Stu''' (with the Ghostface voicebox): Surprise, Sidney!
* From ''Film/{{Se7en}}''
-->'''John Doe:''' Envy is my sin.
* ''Film/{{Serenity}}'': "These are just a few of the images we recorded and you can see... it isn't what we thought."
** And the line that finalizes TheReveal:
-->'''Wash:''' [[EurekaMoment Reavers...]] [[OhCrap They made them!]]
* ''Film/SherlockHolmesAGameOfShadows'': "Come now. You really think you're the only one who can play this game?" This serves as the audience's warning that Holmes' ability to plan his strategy before the fight won't help him this time.
* ''Film/TheShining'': "You've always been the caretaker."
* For laughs: Creator/MelBrooks' 1976 ''Film/SilentMovie'' was just that, with all dialogue on title cards which gets hilariously subverted in the scene where they ask mime Marcel Marceau if he would appear in their film. In the only audible dialogue in the whole movie, we ''hear'' Marcel--whose work is exclusively silent--say "Non!"
* ''Film/SimonBirch''
-->'''Rev. Russell''': A lefty. Just like me.
* In a twist, the 2012 Swiss film L'Enfant d'en haut has a Wham Line that is amplified for the English-speaking audience, for whom the title of the film is Sister:
-->'''Simon:''' She's not my sister, [[LukeIAmYourFather she's my mother!]]
* ''Film/SkyHigh2005'':
--> '''Gwen:''' And to mark this occasion, we've planned a special tribute to the most powerful super-being ever to walk the halls of Sky High. [[EvilAllAlong Me]].
* ''Film/SleepawayCamp'': Angela. Such a lovely name. Why I believe it means 'angel'! Why, yes, I'm ''sure'' it does! I know you're going to like that name, [[UnsettlingGenderReveal won't you Peter?]]
* An example of the final words of a movie being a Wham line: [[Film/SomeLikeItHot "Well, nobody's perfect!"]]
* "It's people. Film/SoylentGreen [[ImAHumanitarian is made out of people]]."
* ''Film/{{Split}}'' spends two hours and change being a thriller about a man with [[SplitPersonality split personalities]] and the three teenage girls he took prisoner. Then the final scene has this exchange, revealing that the film is a StealthSequel to ''Film/{{Unbreakable}}'' and the possible beginning of [[TheVerse a Shamyalan cinematic universe]]:
-->'''Bar patron:''' It's just like that man in the wheelchair that they locked up fifteen years ago. They gave him a funny name too. What was it?\\
'''David Dunn:''' Mr. Glass.
* ''Film/{{Spotlight}}'': "Six percent of 1,500 is ... 90", in which the team realizes that there are in all likelihood far more [[PedophilePriest child-molesting priests]] in the Boston archdiocese than the 13 they were already investigating.
* ''Film/StageDoor'': "It's Kay. She jumped before I could stop her."
* ''Franchise/StarWars'':

*** Earlier than that, ''"No, [[ThereIsAnother there is another]]"''.
** In ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi'': ''"Everything that has transpired has done so according to [[TheChessmaster my design]]!"''
*** From the same movie: "Now witness the firepower of this ''fully armed and operational battle station''!"
** In ''Film/AttackOfTheClones'' we have a wordless one: when the sympathetic clonetroopers form up for review before Palpatine and a group of senators before embarking to fight for the Republic, the Imperial March plays.
** ''Film/RogueOne'' had "[[NightmareFuel Lord Vader]] [[MookHorrorShow will handle]] [[CurbStompBattle the fleet.]]"
** From ''Film/TheForceAwakens'':
-->'''Supreme Leader Snoke:''' ''(To Kylo Ren)'' The droid we seek is aboard the Millennium Falcon, in the hands of your father: Han... Solo...
** ''Film/TheLastJedi'' has a bunch, most notably "It's time for the Jedi to end," which functioned as such in the trailer as well. Also "see you around, kid," and "they were no one".
* From ''[[Film/BabyGeniuses Superbabies: Baby Geniuses 2]]''
-->'''Bill Biscane:''' What? Did you think I went though all this trouble just because Dad liked you best?
* ''Film/SweeneyToddTheDemonBarberOfFleetStreet'': Not for us, but for Judge Turpin: "BENJAMIN BARKER!!!"

-->'''Carola[=/=]The Gargoyle:''' YOU PROMISED NEVER TO TELL!
* ''Film/TheTallMan'':
-->'''David:''' (''to Mrs. Johnson''): Mommy!
* ''Film/Terminator2JudgmentDay'': it's near the end, but damn, is it a [[TearJerker Viewer Punch]].
-->'''T-800''': No. There's one more chip. And it must be destroyed also.
** Eariler in the movie, when John finds himself cornered by ''two'' Terminators...
-->'''T-800''': [[GoodAllAlong Get down]]. ''(shoots T-1000)''
* ''Film/Terminator3RiseOfTheMachines:'' Thanks to the name of the film, it was a foregone conclusion that the machines would take over, but you didn't know exactly when until...:
-->'''John:''' There doesn't have to be a war! We can stop it.
-->'''T-850:''' There is insufficient time. The first launch sequences will be initiated at 6:18 p.m.
** Near the end of the movie...
--> '''John:''' This isn't Skynet... This is a fallout shelter for [=VIPs=]. Only they never got the warning. There's nothing here! Why didn't he tell us? Why did he lead us down here?
--> '''Kate:''' To live. That was his mission.
* The Creator/JohnWayne film ''The Train Robbers'' has him and his gang pulling a robbery to help the widow of a former robber balance things for her son. They end up pulling it off, giving her both the gold and the reward money for herself and her son to start a new life. The train is starting to pull out when the mystery man following them reveals himself to be a Pinkerton agent and as the train leaves, tells them how Matt Lowe was shot in a brothel five years earlier.
-->'''Agent''': I was there. So was she. She worked there. Her name is Lilly, two "L's". Matt Lowe was never married.
* Delivered by [[SixthRangerTraitor Sentinel Prime]] in ''Film/TransformersDarkOfTheMoon''.
--> '''Sentinel Prime:''' Indeed I am. What you must realize, my Autobot brothers, is we were never going to ''win'' the war... [[KnightTemplar For the sake of our planet's survival]], [[DealWithTheDevil a deal had to be made...]] [[FaceHeelTurn with]] ''[[FaceHeelTurn Megatron]]''.
* ''Film/TransformersAgeOfExtinction'': This line, from Lockdown. "You think you were born? You were ''built''. And your creators want you back."
** When Galvatron first speaks; it's also one for the characters, since he isn't supposed to do that.
-->'''Optimus Prime:''' You have no soul.
-->'''Galvatron:''' That is why I have no fear!
* ''Film/TransformersTheLastKnight'' has TheReveal that a certain bit of lore from [[WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime another canon]] has indeed made its way to the movie-verse:
-->'''Quintessa:''' The planet you know as Earth once had another name: [[GodOfEvil Unicron]].
* The plot of the second segment in ''Film/TrilogyOfTerrorII'' has a mother bringing her dead son back to life with black magic. The boy turns against her with an intent to kill, but in the ending, reveals that he isn't her son at all, but a demon.
-->'''"Bobby":''' Bobby didn't wanna come back, mommy. Bobby hates you, mommy. So he sent me instead.
* ''Film/TronLegacy'': Kevin Flynn reveals to his son that [[LastOfHisKind Quorra is the last surviving ISO.]]
* In ''Film/{{United 93}}'', for the RealLife passengers when they finally realize what's going to happen to them. By this time, they know that the World Trade Center and Pentagon have been hit by hijacked planes and theirs is inevitably the next one on that list.
-->'''Tom Burnett:''' Hey, this is a suicide mission. We have to do something. They are ''not'' gonna land this plane.
* ''Film/TheUsualSuspects'':
** It goes from a usual heist film to something else altogether when Kobayashi walks in and says "I work for Keyser Soze." The men in the room all fall silent, knowing that he is a feared and near-mythical crime lord.
** Near the end of Agent Kujan's interrogation, he rattles off his theory that Dean Keaton orchestrated the entire scheme because he was Keyser Söze all along. The final line that hits Verbal Kint in the face is when Kujan tells him that Keaton's girlfriend Edie Finnerman has been found shot to death.
* Chillingly inverted in the CrapsackWorld of ''Visioneers'', in that it's read on the back of a business card after what first appears to be the WhamLine. "[[KillTheOnesYouLove Kill the thing you love]]."
* ''Film/TheWave:'' "Here is your leader!" (shows a recording of none other than UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler)
** In German remake ''Film/DieWelle'', Marco expresses his concerns to Herr Wenger about the Wave's escalation, and says to him, "I don't think you've got this under control anymore, not at all."
** Rainer at first appears to ignore Marco but calls a grand meeting of the wave the next day, at which he announces his ambitions of German political domination, to rapturous support. Marco, believing him to have gone mad, speaks out, and Rainer has him dragged up on stage, to ask the students holding Marco, "If I asked you to, would you kill him?" This is somewhat subverted however when Herr Wenger reveals to Marco and the group that the whole point of the meeting was to demonstrate that the Wave was out of control, and he never intended to hurt Marco.
* When Ellen is being examined by Dr. Beckham in ''Film/ToTheBone'', she's pretty much talking to him like any other previous doctor she's had and trying to put off a false innocence. He's having ''none'' of it, establishing his character in the film.
-->'''Dr. Beckham: '''I talk to kids like you all day, every day. So I know that you are, as a rule, full of shit.
* ''Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit'': Judge Doom reveals himself to be a Toon, and on top of that, the Toon that killed Eddie's brother.
-->'''Judge Doom''': Remember me, Eddie? When I killed your brother, I talked... ''(voice gets high and squeaky)'' [[PunctuatedForEmphasis JUST...LIKE...THIIIIIIIIIS!]]
** And earlier, when Eddie is [[JackBauerInterrogationTechnique interrogating]] R.K. maroon about his deal with Cloverleaf Industries to sell his studio and the Acme gag factory.
-->'''R.K. Maroon:''' I've been around Toons all my life! I didn't want to see them get destroyed!

* ''Film/XMenFilmSeries'':
** In ''[[Film/XMen1 X-Men]]'', Wolverine and Rogue have been chased and attacked several times by Magneto's band of mutants. The X-Men come to the conclusion that Magneto's after Wolverine, possibly due to his self-regeneration abilities. Then Magneto corners the pair in a train station and has Wolverine completely at his mercy...
-->'''Wolverine''': What do you want from me?\\
'''Magneto''': You? My dear boy, whoever said I wanted you? ''[Wolverine turns to look at Rogue]''
** ''Film/{{Logan}}'':
*** Laura's "De nada." PlayedForLaughs, as Logan is very annoyed that she didn't say anything before.
*** When we first see Xavier, Logan walks in silently while Charles is rambling on about Taco Bell and other random things. Just when you think they're going to start playing the ScatterbrainedSenior trope for comedy, Charles looks at Logan, one of his oldest friends, and says "Who are you?".
*** In a more serious sense, Xavier realizing that he killed some of the X-Men is also one as we only got a hint of this earlier and it changes the aspect of Xavier being a funny old man into quite the TragicHero.
* A funny example from ''Film/YoungFrankenstein'': after it's revealed that Frau Blucher has been riling up the Monster, this reveals that she was Frankenstein, Sr's girlfriend:
-->'''Frau Blucher:''' [[note]] ''[[RunningGag Neeeiiiiggghhh!]]'' [[/note]] ''YES!'' ''[[LargeHam SAY IT! SAY IT!]]'' ''''' [[PunctuatedForEmphasis HE! WAS! MY! BOYFRIEEEND!]]'''''
* ''Film/{{Zodiac}}'' has this happen twice. The first is when Graysmith is talking with a sister of one of the Zodiac's victims and trying to get the name of a man who might be the killer. Just as he is about to leave, she tells him "It was Leigh" The second occurs when he is talking to a man who is a friend of another suspect. After telling the man, Robert Vaughn, that the reason he believes this man's friend, Rick Marshall, is the Zodiac is due to some handwriting on a movie poster, Vaughn replies with: "Rick didn't draw any of the posters. That's my handwriting".
