* In keeping with the above, Vimes muses in Discworld/NightWatch that part of the basis of police work is questioning people that privately believe cops can peer into their souls to find the BigSecret. You're just not allowed to [[SecretPolice slam their fingers in drawers until they give it up]].

* In an episode of ''ThePractice'', a friend of Bobby's (who is also a lawyer) is protecting a prostitute in a murder case.

* In the anime ''LoveHina'', the episode "The Case of the Missing Hinata Apartment Money: A Mystery", Narusegawa Naru refuses to let the other residents search her room for the missing money and later grabs the turtle, Tama-chan, when it is seen to have a piece of paper stuck to it (which is thought to possibly be a piece of one of the bills). Of course, it turns out that Naru was not the culprit; rather, she did not want the others to learn that she treasured a photo of herself and Keitaro, which she had been looking for and which was the paper stuck on Tama's shell.

* An episode of BostonLegal featured a case in which the BigSecret was that the man was reluctant to use his alibi of having been in bed with another man. ** The same BigSecret was used in another episode of BostonLegal but made way more believable by the twist that it was one of Denny's first cases and had happened during the 1960s. Denny, being awesome, managed to get the man acquitted without revealing the truth.
