** Season 4 has a few off-handed mentions of the bees disappearing, which at first appears like a reference to the real life headlines about bee populations declining in 2007/2008. [[spoiler: This ends up cluing The Doctor in on a means of tracking the BigBad of the season.]]


In a DetectiveDrama, any time a piece of dialogue comes along which is off-the-cuff, not followed up and unrelated to everything, you can tell it's going to be very important. If a suspect turns up late and says "Sorry I'm late, my car was stolen yesterday", the alleged car theft will be significant. If the detective remarks that the suspect has a nice keychain and the suspect says "Yeah, it's from my old fraternity", the insignia on the keychain will turn up later to reveal that the suspect and victim were in college together. Basically this happens whenever the writer can't find a neat way of dropping an important clue into an existing conversation.

* ''Series/DoctorWho'': At the beginning of [[Recap/DoctorWhoS27E7TheLongGame "The Long Game"]], the Doctor and Rose get out of the TARDIS and he gives her a few pieces of information about where they've landed for her to tell newbie Adam when he comes out. After Adam gets out, Rose points out all of those things about their surroundings, but adds that they could consider turning the heating down. It's later revealed the heat comes from the massive alien that secretly runs the station, which needs to be vented away from it so it stays alive.

** There's a notable example in ''Apollo Justice''. At the beginning of the second case, Phoenix hires Apollo. Much to Apollo's annoyance, he is not assigned to defend a client, but rather to find the culprit of three random events: A hit and run where Phoenix was injured, a noodle cart theft, and a ''[[PantyThief panty snatching]]''. Then, a murder is reported in the area and Apollo takes the defendant's case. [[spoiler: Yes, of course ''all three'' of the seemingly random events end up playing into the murder: The driver in the hit and run was the victim, the noodle cart was stolen by the victim and he was killed while pulling it, and the "panty snatcher" (who, it turns out, actually stole two pairs of [[FanDisservice bloomers]], one of which was a prop [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} Trucy]] [[InsistentTerminology kept referring to as them panties]]) was both the only witness in the murder and also the reason why the victim stole the noodle cart.]]
* ''Franchise/StarWarsLegends'': In ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic'', you can ask Canderous why his people attacked the Republic. He shrugs and say ''"the Sith came to us with an offer,"'' and the rest of the conversation is about how [[ProudWarriorRace Mandalorians]] thrive on seeking out the most risky fights and challenges the galaxy can offer. You have no way of knowing at the time that "the Sith" he is referring to is [[VideoGame/StarWarsTheOldRepublic Sith Emperor Vitiate]], that the Sith Empire is in hiding and quietly building for conquest, that said Emperor was playing everyone [[spoiler: including the then-amnesiac-and-unwitting player character]] as pawns and fools, that he would eventually [[spoiler: get the player character from this game and its sequel to waltz right into his trap, render the player character insane through 300 years of MindRape,]] and turn them loose to play right into his OmnicidalManiac plans...

* When David leaves the party in the rain in ''Film/RehearsalForMurder'', he complains that there is a cab parked across the street with its off-duty light on. This casual comment will become important during TheSummation.

* In ''Film/TheThinMan'', early in the movie the odd watchchain of The Old Professor was pointed out. That same watchchain was later used in an effort to frame the Old Professor by leaving it at the scene of a murder. (But the Professor's alibi was solid -- at that point he had been dead for over a month.)
* In ''Film/StarTrekFirstContact'', Geordi is giving routine orders to the engineering staff, and tells one of them to check the climate control, since it was getting a little warm in the engine room. It turns out that this was a clue that Borg had beamed aboard and were altering the ship, since Borg ships are warmer than Federation ships.
* ''Film/HotFuzz'' almost parodies this trope (like it does with most police movie tropes). Sgt. Angel makes one offhand comment about each of the minor characters before they are murdered that turns out to be the exact reason they were killed. The thing is, ''he had no idea''. He came up with a complicated theory about why they were killed that had nothing to do with those offhand comments, and he found the killers before he was told their motive.

Bloom, not wanting to be inconvenienced, tells the man to keep it, as he was just going 'to throw it away'. The man walks away, inspired.

In almost every episode, minor details dismissed very early in the hour come back and provide a conclusive link to the true killer; in a number of episodes, similarly minor details pull the investigation in a different direction.
