* TrueCompanions: Again, Carminati and his team.
** This trope backfires in one episode, when he actually ''does'' the "Tom Weil test" by falling on his back deliberately: his team must be ready to catch him before he falls on the nails on the floor. Unfortunately for him, he does this while delivering a RousingSpeech about his belief in the importance of teamwork, which ends with his "For Tom Weil!", which his co-workers are basically ''programmed'' to answer with a "hip hip, hooray!", complete with a re-enactment of ''Literature/TheThreeMusketeers''' well-known StabTheSky (see the page picture for TrueCompanions) with their pens, by that point of the episode. Cue him falling on his back, and on the nails as well (which promptly stab him).
