- In X-23 #13, while traveling in New York Gambit asks Laura if she's "ever spent much time in this city?".
X-23: No. I lived here first. In the city.
Gambit: Didn't know that. What were you doin'?
X-23: I was a prostitute.
- In Kyon: Big Damn Hero, Haruhi and Tsuruya are chatting about Kyon and kissing in the presence of Yuki, who was silently reading:
Tsuruya: Would kissing be within those boundaries?
Haruhi: I already did, so I'd be a hypocrite if I said no.
Tsuruya: So he practiced with you! That's why he was so good... Er... Um... Um, I have a picture of me in a junihitoe on that SD card!
Haruhi: You and him!? Er... I mean... Yeah, he's really really good, isn't he?
Tsuruya: I thinks so.
Yuki: I also think so.

- Ratatouille: Skinner reveals during a discussion with his lawyer that he is paranoid about the rat, thinking Luigi is trying to psyche him out. Skinner's lawyer notes that he had to take a second sample of Luigi's hair. When Skinner asks why, the lawyer says:

- In Django Unchained, Dr. King Schultz talks with the francophile plantation owner Calvin Candie (who named one of his slaves D'Artagnan), wondering whether Alexandre Dumas would agree with Candie's practice of slavery. Candie shrugs off the doubts, until Schultz finally points out that Alexandre Dumas was black (by the standards of the time, at least).
- In Apollo 13, the crew of the spaceship and the flight controllers on the ground are trying to figure out what's happening with the spaceship, and whether the problems are real or just bad data from the on-board telemetry. Then Jim Lovell checks out his window... and sees something that lets him know that they're in deep trouble.
Jim Lovell: Houston, we are venting something into space.
- Two examples in Spock's World:
- McCoy's question at the end of Sarek's discourse: "What do[es the government] think of the scheme to sell off formerly Federation-owned property on Vulcan, after the secession, to secret buyers with strong anti-Federation leanings, who have already made substantial payoffs to Vulcan officials to ensure that the property will be sold to them at 'lowest bid' before anyone else hears of it?"
- Followed seconds later by another such line. Sarek says that the government can't respond to that scheme without seeing solid evidence of it, and McCoy says, "Sir, I await your convenience." The author describes the reaction thusly: "And the room went mad."
- Breaking Bad:
Hank Schrader: Yeah. It seems that, uh, Fring had all these secret offshore accounts that he would deposit money into. Like, uh, well, an even dozen of them. And they're all in the names of certain people on his payroll. There was the, uh, the manager of the laundry, umm, a couple guys from the Pollos distribution center. Uh, there was the owner of a chemical warehouse, a bunch of others, you know. Guys that must've been getting paid off the books. Anyway, one of the names...was Kaylee Ehrmantraut. Ten years old and just cute as a button. Yeah. $2 million and change we found on deposit for her. Way more than anybody else. Now, my partner here? He took one look at that and said, "Shit, man! This fifth-grade girl is the muscle behind Fring's entire operation!" I said, "Whoa, whoa, hey, partner, slow down there. Maybe it was actually her dear old granddaddy." Impressive, no? That...tsk tsk, level of insight? [beat] He's not impressed, Gomie.
- "I fucked Ted."
- In "Madrigal," Mike is summoned to the DEA office to be interrogated by Hank and Gomez. He manages to make his way through their questions about his employment with Gus, pretends to be "surprised" by their asking him about if he worked in Gus's drug enterprise, then asks if he's free to go. Mike gets up, only for Hank to then ask, "Oh, well, I don't suppose we could talk about the $2 million in your granddaughter's name?" This causes Mike to stop dead in his tracks.
- Luke Cage: Mariah Dillard is doing a live TV interview about what the Harlem community means to her, and then the reporter suddenly asks, "Which Harlem?" before attempting to ask Mariah about her known criminal connections.
- In Deus Ex, if you keep prodding Carter for dialogue, he'll drop this little bombshell:
Sam Carter: A pistol is more than adequate. Hell, I dispatched a whole platoon one time with a pocket knife.
- Referenced and averted in Mass Effect 3. Talk to Tali on the Citadel after she becomes the Quarian Ambassador in Priority: Rannoch and she'll mention running into a turian clerk who she originally met three years ago, just before coming across Shepard for the first time, who was at the time quite rude and racist towards the no-name quarian, which endangered her life, as she was seeking protection from Saren's assassins, who wanted to silence her before she could deliver evidence implicating him. She says she considered revealing how they'd already met to make him squirm, then decided it would be beneath her, which Shepard says is a sign of virtue.
- Leading up to Noob's first big reveal, we see Amaras finding out something, then sending his generals to confront the Justice guild main roster about it. However, the Justice guild main roster is Locked Out of the Loop on the subject, so its members initially assume that Amaras' generals are just being extremely bitter about being Always Second Best to them. One of of Amaras' generals catches on to this and utters a few words that let the Justice guild members know that there is a real problem:
- Battos: Strange, they don't seem to know.
