Quick! Something particularly exciting has happened! And, for some reason, there's a reporter on the scene, complete with cameraman! At a particularly exciting moment, the reporter has ''got'' to turn to the camera and say something to the effect of "AreWeGettingThis" The answer is usually yes, but it's anyone's guess as to whether the camera will survive the episode.


[[AC:{{Anime}} and {{Manga}}]]
* Possible variation: in ''Anime/{{Naruto}}'': Ninja Clash in the Land of Snow, the movie director keeps yelling "Keep filming, keep filming!" every time someone attacks the princess/actress Naruto's group is protecting.
* A variation (sans the stock phrase) appears in ''PenguinRevolution'' when Ryo and his rival Narazaki get into a fight on the set of the {{sentai}} show they're filming. Since the episode being filmed calls for their characters to fight, the director of the episode immediately demands that the cameras start rolling.
* Used in an episode of ''{{Anime/Pokemon}}''. The English dub had the reporter comment that Team Rocket was making a dramatic exit through the roof - then she [[BreakingTheFourthWall turned to the camera and said gleefully]] "Just like our ratings will!"
* This is what happens in ''Anime/DigimonAdventure02'' when some rogue Digimon crash a Christmas Eve concert.
* Happens in ''DragonBallZ'' during Trunks' and Goten's match at the tournament. Unfortunately, the kids are moving so quickly that the cameras can't keep up.

* An issue of ''Comicbook/{{Runaways}}'' uses this, only with a little bit more swearing.
* Used to tragic effect during the {{Onslaught}} Saga, with longtime X-Men character Trish Tilby's video report appearing to show the X-Men betraying and murdering the Fantastic Four and Avengers.

* ''Film/DieHard'': A reporter asks his cameraman this twice - played straight after a massive explosion inside Nakatomi Plaza, and then sarcastically after being punched in the face by Holly Gennero.
** Inverted in ''Film/DieHard2'' when the cameraman, seeing Holly and John finally getting together and starting to kiss, remarks that he is getting it to the news reporter. She then covers the camera, deliberately ruining the shot.
* In ''Film/PearlHarbor'', while the Japanese are attacking the titular location, one of the characters is filming the planes coming in with a camera yelling "This is great footage!" [[spoiler:Too bad, he gets shot for his trouble, ''on camera''.]]
* ''[REC] 2'' has a priest following a SWAT team through an apartment building, constantly ordering a camerman to film various things they encounter.
* In ''Film/TheRocketeer'' when the eponymous hero takes to the air with his JetPack to rescue a friend at an air show.

* In Scott Westerfeld's book ''Extras'', the main character, Aya, is constantly asking her hovercam, Moggle, "Are you getting this?"

* Done on ''Series/BabylonFive'', when an Earth reporter gets rare footage of Ambassador Kosh.
* Asked repeatedly by D'Anna Biers, the reporter in the ''Series/BattlestarGalacticaReimagined'' episode "Final Cut".
* Said by the remote operators who find the [[spoiler:faked]] wreckage of Oceanic 815 in the ''Series/{{Lost}}'' episode "Confirmed Dead."
* Used in a sketch on ''SaturdayNightLive'', where the premise is the gang at a frat party and someone is recording the events. One character makes a double entendre, and Jimmy Fallon's character turns to the camera and says "Tommy, please tell me you got that!"
** In one of the ''[[Series/{{Jeopardy}} Celebrity Jeopardy!]]'' sketches, Will Ferrell as Alex Trebek has this response to a Final Jeopardy! response that could actually be interpreted as correct. ("Where are you?" "Indoors.")
* Done to perfection in an episode of ''{{Sanctuary}}'', where the reporter witnesses a number of nasty things, is duly horrified and then, as soon as she ''can'' speak again, asks "did we get that?".
* ''TheSuiteLifeOnDeck'': When Baily's possessed by a an ancient princess, she attacks Zack (as he's being interviewed by a local reporter for discovering an ancient artifact.) Her response?
--> '''Reporter''': Get this! This will be better than my story on the coconut that looked like Estabon Francesco!

* Used during part one of the ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'' FiveEpisodePilot "Treasure of the Golden Suns", during Scrooge and his nephews' confrontation with the Beagle Boys at the candy factory.
* ''{{Frisky Dingo}}'':
--> Grace Ryan: (gasps) Are you getting this?
--> Cameraman: Am... am I getting footage of me, the cameraman? Absolutely not.
* Played straight in the ''BuzzLightyearOfStarCommand'' movie. After Buzz finishes his PatrickStewartSpeech, Zurg makes sure it has been captured on camera so that he can laugh at it later.
* Inverted in the ''WesternAnimation/JackieChanAdventures'' episode "Snake Hunt", when TV archaeologist Wesley Rank encounters a gigantic snake but is more concerned with getting out alive and in possession of [[MacGuffin the snake talisman it's guarding]]. Rank's camera operator remains calm and shines the camera's spotlight into the snake's eyes.
-->'''Rank:''' Crikey, I didn't tell you to film ''that''!
-->'''Cameraman:''' Hello, I'm blinding it! Snakes don't have eyelids!
