Illustrations of basic moves in the media

Thanks to my 20-month old daughter's sudden love for music videos (thank you, youtube), I've actually seen a few. Yes, few. Again, and again, and again....
Anywho, her recent obsession is Avril Lavigne's "Girlfriend", and as I was watching it for the 39th time yesterday it struck me that it serves a an amazingly good example of the "Shut someone down" move, including how hurting someone can be a "Shut someone down" instead of "Lashing out physically".

There is, of course, also a bit of "Turn someone on" and possibly "Manipulate an NPC".

Do any of you have any other good examples of basic moves?

Gaze Into the Abyss seems to be the hardest one to find examples of, but there are a few. Perhaps appropriately, the ones I'm thinking of come from Twilight. The various mental powers of some of the vampires (Edwards mind-reading, Alice's visions of the future) are as good an example as I can find. The different powers even illustrate how Gazing is different for each character.
