* A dialogue-based example occurs in ''{{Series/Spaced}}'': Daisy decides to write up a house-cleaning rota for the flat. Cue Daisy typing to Tchaikovsky's Piano Concerto 1, with shots of various house-hold implements overlaid, all set up to suggest that it's a grand, massive undertaking on par with writing an epic novel. When she gets to the end, she promptly passes out on her typewriter from exhaustion. Tim then awakens her, and reveals when asked that she'd only been typing for two-and-a-half minutes.
