Is there a way to shut off photo samples in commands?


I just bought a Nikon D5100.  I have found that the command structure as it appears in the LCD, not the menus generally, but things like setting metering type (spot, matrix, center) and scene modes show a sample photo of what is needed or will happen.  They are generally mediocre or worse (look at the one for matrix metering of a lady sitting with a silly grin behind a house, as an example) and not something that I want to see in the midst of the creative process.  Is there any way to shut down all the little photos and only see words, icons or graphic displays like the histograms and levels graphs?  I have a Sony NEX-7 that has the same issue, but not as permeating.  I don't want to have two such cameras.

Thanks for any help.
