  • Basically in any game show where the prize is some large amount of money, for example: "One. Million. Dollars!"

  • American Idol: Simon Cowell. "What. The Hell. Was That?"
  • The Therapy Buddy from American Inventor: Everything. Is. Going. To. Be. All. Right.
  • Angel: Harmony. "Chanel's. Not. TACKY!"
  • Ashes to Ashes (2008): We are police officers. And we are Un. Bloody. BREAKABLE!
  • Advertisement:
  • Babylon 5: No more! No more of you! No more Nightwatch! No more hostages! No more LIES! Not on my station! Not on my watch! NO MORE!
  • Battlestar Galactica (2003): But I was! Elected! To Office! Which is more. Than Roslin. Can claim.
  • The Big Bang Theory: Our whole universe was in a HOT! DENSE! STATE!
  • The Big Comfy Couch: HEY... WHO MADE THIS BIG MESS!!?
  • Avon's famous This Cannot Be! reaction in the final scene of Blake's 7. "Is it true? Have you betrayed us? Have. You. Betrayed. ME?" (Shatner would be proud)
  • In The Borgias, Rodrigo has had a few of these moments, most notably "We will. EXCOMMUNICATE! FLORENCE!" Then there's Juan, who's not exactly sane at this point, yelling "MACHIAVELLI! KNOWS! EVERYTHING!" as part of a rant blaming Cesare and Machiavelli for not telling him another army was joining the battle.
  • The Bozo Show: GRAND! PRIZE! GAME!
  • Buffy the Vampire Slayer: I. Owe. You. Pain.
    • "They got. The mustard. OOOOOOOOOUUUUUUUUUT!" The musical cadence and crescendo forced him into it, but it counts.
    • Advertisement:
    • Then there was "The Prom", where Buffy is arguing with her friends because they want to help her fight the loser who wants revenge rather than attend the party.
      Oz: Buffy, it makes sense to...
      Buffy: Have. A nice. Time.
    • Flooded: NO! MORE! FULL! COPPER! REPIPE!
  • Chappelle's Show: FUCK! YOUR! COUCH! NIGGA! FUCK! YOUR! COUCH!

And we shall go to Arrakeen. To collect it." Also, in response to Muad'dib relaying an alliance offer from the spacing guild: "We haven't forgotten about the they BLACKMAILED us for SPICE!". In fact, Stilgar's actor in the Children series (different from his actor in the first miniseries) delivers enough of these lines to qualify as a Large Ham.
  • CSI: Miami: "You forget one thing: We. Never. Close."
    • Horatio talks like this to show that things are really serious now.
  • Deadliest Warrior: Who? Is? DEADLIEST?!
  • The Doctor Oz Show: Dr. Oz and his audience introduce the GAME! OF! THE! DAY! in this manner.
  • Doctor Who is in love with this trope and always has been, right back from the camp days of the 60's and 70's (or is it 80's?) right up to the (arguably just as camp) present, with epic scale ham.
    • EX-TER-MI-NATE! The Daleks Turn It Up To Eleven by emphasizing every single syllable, and it's made them icons of British TV. And the Dalek Emperor says that yes, actually, this is blasphemy.
      • E-LE-VATE.
    • And who could forget — "THERE ARE! NO! MACRA!"
    • The Dalek Emperor: "DO! NOT! FIGHT! IN! HEEERE!"
    • In "The Three Doctors", Omega, who is one of the largest hams what ever hammed, even by Doctor Who standards, speaks pretty much all of his lines this way. "I. AM. THE. CREATOR. OF. TIME. LORD. SOCIETYYYYYYY!"
    • Davros, the Daleks' creator, taught them how to talk this way, so naturally he does it himself. Big Finish Doctor Who has one of the more epic examples: "I! Will! Not! Cower! I! Will! Not! Die! I! Will! Not! Die! This! Is! Not! The end! This! Is! Only! THE BEGINNING!"
      • "YOU! WILL! TELL! ME!"
      • I! WILL! GO ON!
      • Or this exchange between Davros and the Seventh Doctor:
        Seventh Doctor: [interrupting him] -POWERFUL! Conquer the galaxy! Crush! The lesser races! UNLIMITED! RICE! PUDDING! ETCETERA! ETCETERA!
    • "HOW! MANY! NIMONS?"
    • Seven in "Battlefield": "STOOOOOOOP! I COMMAND IT! THERE. WILL. BE. NO. BATTLE HERE!!!"

    • Nine in "Father's Day": "Jackie Tyler, do as I say! GO! AND CHECK! THE DOORS!"
    • "The Empty Child"/"The Doctor Dances":
      • The Child and his army of gas-mask zombies sometimes do this with their Madness Mantra:
        "Are. You. My. Mum-mmy?"
      • The Ninth Doctor: "GO — TO — YOUR — ROOM!" Arguably lampshaded right after, with the Doctor saying he's glad it worked because "those would have been terrible Last Words."
      • EVERYBODY!!! LIVES!!!!!!!
    • "The Christmas Invasion":
      • The Sycorax leader and the newly-regenerated Tenth Doctor both speak like this: "I DEMAND TO KNOW. WHO. YOU. ARE!" "I. DON'T. KNOW!"
      • Also, the Doctor's Declaration of Protection:
        "By the ancient rites of combat, I forbid you to scavenge here for the rest of time. And when you go back to the stars and tell others of this planet, when you tell them of its riches, its people, its potential, when you talk of the Earth, then make sure that you tell them this... IT! IS! DEFENDED!"
    • "New Earth":
      Rose: [laughing] So you're talking out your–

      The Doctor: And I'M! NOT! LISTENING!
    • "Human Nature": Father of Mine, when crashing the village dance:
      "YOU! WILL! BE! SILENT!"
    • A villainous example by the Master, done in a menacing hiss and far more effective as a result, from "Utopia":
      "I. Am. The Master."
    • Donna pulled this off when she first saw the Doctor again in "Partners in Crime", although we only see her mouthing the words (through soundproof glass): "Oh! My! GOD!" followed by, "This! Is! BRILLIANT!"
    • "The Doctor's Daughter" contains the line "I. Never. Would." Cranking that Tranquil Fury.
    • "Journey's End":
      • Courtesy of Davros:
        "THIS! Is my ultimate victory, Doctor! THE DESTRUCTION! OF REALITY! ITSELF!"
      • The absolutely epic Moment of Awesome from Dalek Caan, of all characters, ends with:
        "And I decreed: No! More!"
    • "The Waters of Mars": I am the Last of the Time Lords! The Laws of Time are mine! And They! Will! Obey me!
    • "The End of Time":
      • As the Master comes back to life: "NEVER! NEVER! NEVER DYING! NEVER DYING!"
      • Lucy Saxon gets hers in this dueling Punctuated! For! Emphasis! with the resurrected Master:
        The Master: DON'T! YOU! DARE!
      • "Worst! Rescue! EVER!"
      • Timothy Dalton's furious "I will NOT! DIE!!!!"
      • The Master's Heroic Sacrifice: "YOU DID THIS TO ME! ALL OF MY LIFE! YOU! MADE! ME!! ONE! TWO!! THREE!!! FOUR!!!!"
    • "Victory of the Daleks":
      • "YOU! ARE! MY! ENEMY!" (each word punctuated by the Dalek in question being pummeled by a big wrench) and later "I am the Doctor, and YOU ARE! THE! DALEKS!"
      • The Daleks in that episode as well: "WOULD! YOU! LIKE! SOME! TEA?!" "I! AM! YOUR! SOLDIER!" and "YOU! DO! NOT! REQUIRE! TEA?!"
    • "Flesh and Stone": "LIKE! ME! FOR! INSTANCE!" Matt Smith can yell with the best of them.
    • "The Vampires of Venice": "WE! ARE! VENETIANS!!!"
    • "Amy's Choice": "THIS VILLAGE! IS SO! DULL!"
    • "The Pandorica Opens": "Could you lot just stay still for a minute, 'cause III! AAAAM! TALLLLKIIING!"

      • Even more for managing to scare the living crap out of the Cybermen.
      • The Doctor to Colonel Manton, aka Colonel Run-Away: "When, in the future, people come to you and ask you whether coming after me through the PEOPLE! I! LOVE! is in any way a good idea, I want you to tell them your name."
      • When Rory and Amy are reunited with their daughter, the Doctor awkwardly tries to bow out to let the family have some private time. Rory insists that the Doctor come in to meet Melody, saying, "Oy! You. Get in here. Now!"

  • Family Matters: "Carl! Carl … Otis … Winslow!" Said by Harriet, reprimanding her husband (for accidentally discarding her late aunt's cremains in with fireplace ashes and keeping quiet) … shortly after Carl had lectured Eddie about gambling at an underground casino to cover up the fact that, while being an unlicensed driver, he was involved in a car accident with the family car.
  • Father Ted: Most of the time, Father Jack, who tends to stick with a handful of words. Namely "WHAT?!", "NO!", "DRINK!", "FECK!", "ARSE!", "GIRLS!"
  • Frasier: I! AM! WOUNDED!
  • Freaky: In "Dog":
    • "Okay, you've taken it too far. The joke's over. Let. Me. In. Now!"

  • Hilariously, in a recent tour promoting his latest film (Law Abiding Citizen), Gerard Butler of 300 fame appeared on Friday Night with Jonathan Ross, and was asked (persuaded? bullied?) to introduce each and every guest in exactly this way. He introduced heavyweight champion of the world David Haye, Girls Aloud's Sarah Harding and comedian Michael McIntyre. Who then introduced Butler himself in similar style, complete with kick.
  • Friends has Janice's Incoming Ham phrase "Oh! My! God!", that makes Chandler's balls "jump back up inside his body".
    • Ross does it twice in the same scene. An emphatic version of an infamous phrase ("We! Were! On! A! Break!") and "Front — and back'''!"
    • And Ross again in this scene. As in:
      Ross: It. Was. My. Sandwich.
      Colleague: Now, now. Calm down — come look in my office. Some of it may still be in the trash. W-well, it was quite large; I had to throw most of it away!

    • King Joffrey's response to his uncle threatening to geld him.
      "What did you say? What...did you...SAY?!"
    • And later when he is dismissed for insulting his Dragon-in-Chief grandfather.
      "I'm not...TIRED!!"
    • And later still, when he's trying his hardest to publically humiliate his uncle. This really seems to be his main tactic for intimidation.
      "Kneel. I said...KNEEL!"
    • The Master Torturer: "I. Want. The. Truth!"
  • Gotham: There's an unusually drawn out example when Gordon, who has spent the entire series thumbing his nose at absolutely everyone with any power in the city, finally has enough.
    Gordon: I'm done being careful.
    Bullock: You think you've been careful so far?
    Gordon: I'm taking them all down.
    Bullock: You think you've been careful so far.
    Gordon: The mayor, Falcone, and every dirty cop I know about.
    Bullock: You think. You've been careful. So far.

  • How I Met Your Mother: "I am NEVER! Eating RIBS! AGAIN! ...In front of TED!"
    • "IT! WILL! NOT!... yield".
    • This trope is pretty much Barney's default manner of speaking.
    • The best example has to come from Ted, though. "You fight all. The. Time."

  • One of the Kitchen Nightmares openings has Gordon exclaiming "That! Is! Amazing!", possibly one of the rare occasions he's used this trope in a positive manner. His more-or-less Once an Episode Catchphrase of "Shut the place down!" is usually said without emphasis, but on some occasions where things have been REALLY bad, it was emphasised "Shut! The place! DOWN!"

  • Malcolm in the Middle: Malcom's friend... Stevie... always talks... like this. (It's because he has severe asthma and only really has enough breath for one or two words at a time).

  • In the "Harper vs. Harper" episode of Mama's Family, Thelma and Naomi are arguing over a broken vacuum and a burnt rug. The judge gets increasingly agitated by their antics and delivers several lines WITH! LOTS! OF! WORD! EMPHASIS!:

      'Thelma: He's my son!
      Naomi: He's my husband!
      Judge: IT! IS MY! COURTROOM!
    • After a subject diversion about Thelma's Aunt Minnie:
      Judge: I don't care about your Aunt Minnie!

    • After Thelma tries to demand the money from Naomi:
      Judge: Now, I will not tell you again! LET! ME! HANDLE! THIS! CASE!

    • Later played straight: Will asked Mac not to tell anyone the story of why they broke up. Then she accidentally sent an e-mail, explaining in some detail what happened, to the entire office...
      Will McAvoy: You know how sometimes something happens in an instant that's so astonishing you just... shut down?
      MacKenzie McHale: Of course, that's understa–
