* ClearMyName: Subverted; Nelson ''thinks'' he's in this trope and goes on the run, but it's made instantly clear that the police already know he didn't do it and aren't interested in him in the least.

Nelson Hibbert (Foley) is a slightly obnoxious executive who will do anything he can to get to the top. His boss is just about to announce the new president of the company, and Nelson thinks it's going be himself. Of course, it's not, and Nelson ends up yelling death threats at his boss while being dragged away by security. And, to make matters worse, a few minutes later Nelson's boss is murdered, and Nelson is the first one to discover the body. The police already know who the real killer is, and it's not Nelson. However, the extremely paranoid Nelson does not know this, and, fearing that he will be framed, goes on the run. [[HilarityEnsues Hilarity Ensues]] as Nelson frequently crosses paths with both the cops and the real killer at the worst times possible.

* ShaggyDogStory: The premise is a man who unnecessarily goes on the run because he's convinced the police think he's a murderer while the police know full well he isn't, making his entire 'escape' utterly pointless.
