  • Emphasized for laughs in The Incredibles: "All right, listen closely. I'd like to help you, but I can't. I'd like to tell you to take a copy of your policy to Norma Wilcox on — (whispering) Norma Wilcox. W-I-L-C-O-X. — on the third floor. But I can't. I also do not advise you to fill out and file a WS2475 form with our legal department on the second floor. I wouldn't expect someone to get back to you quickly to resolve the matter. I'd like to help, but there's nothing I can do."

  • Arthur Christmas: There is absolutely nothing to see at the North Pole.
  • Rango: Beans's father most certainly DID NOT die when he fell drunk down a mine shaft.
  • Brave: Woodcarver: It is not possible to imbue wood with magical properties!
  • Harv buttering up Lightning in Cars:
    Harv: And it is such an honor to be your agent that it almost hurts me to take ten percent of your winnings. And merchandising. And ancillary rights in perpetuity— anyway, what a race, huh, champ?
  • In Ice Age 4: Continental Drift, when Crash and Eddie didn't watch over Peaches the way Manny commanded:
    Manny: You two were supposed to be responsible uncles!
    Eddie: What? I didn't see Peaches sneak off maybe 15 or 20 minutes ago.
    Crash: Or that she went with Louis to the falls.
  • Storks: Nate's letter to the storks, which contains repeated assertions that it was sent by his adult parents, who are adults, and most certainly not by Nate.

  • In The Angry Birds Movie, the stolen eggs are stashed in a room with "NO EGGS IN HERE" written on the doors.
    Chuck: "No eggs in-" [gasps] Ooh, these are clever pigs.
  • Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse: When the alternate universe Spiders are introducing themselves, Spider-Ham outstretches his hand, which is completely drenched, for a handshake. He immediately notes that his hands are wet because he just washed his hands and insists there's no other reason.
  • Found throughout Queen Watevra Wa'Nabi’s Most Definitely Not A Villain Song in The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part. She's definitely not an evil queen, she has zero evil plans, and she certainly won't have you executed for offending her, because that would be evil. She's telling the truth, and has no idea that it's coming across as this trope.
