- The man did, indeed, finally find what he was looking for.
- Yes, indeed.
- I do, indeed, intend on going to the game.
- Jeffrey is a very happy man, indeed.
- This is extremely good news, indeed.

- How will we ever raise the money we need for our project? How indeed?
- I wonder if he does indeed understand the seriousness of this situation.
