* In ''Film/ThankYouForSmoking'', Nick is sent to deliver a briefcase of cash to a former cigarette spokesman who now has terminal lung cancer and has begun speaking against his former employers. Nick explains that the money is a "gift" and has no conditional terms, so he is not legally required to stay silent if he accepts it, but Nick points out that ''ethically'' he can't denounce them publicly and keep the money. He later tells his son that only a crazy person would turn down that much money, so as soon as he saw that the guy was sane, he had nothing to worry about.

* Played for humor at the end of ''Film/SmallSoldiers''. The CEO of the company that made the self aware, murderous toys just shows up and hands out checks that convince everyone to happily keep quiet about the incident.

* ''Series/{{Angel}}'': Throughout the episode "Disharmony," Angel, having returned to Angel Investigations after an extended KnightTemplar, spends most of the episode trying to get on Cordelia's good side through other means. By the end, he's able to win back her friendship by simply buying her an entirely new wardrobe as an ApologyGift; ironically, this is ''after'' Wesley told him he couldn't just buy back Cordelia's affection. Of course, Cordelia herself admits that the primary reason she was so upset with Angel is because he sold all her old clothes:
-->'''Cordy''': And you know, [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking you didn't just betray me, Angel. You didn't just hurt me. You gave away my clothes]].\\
'''Angel''': To the needy.\\
'''Cordy''': I ''am'' the needy!

** ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'' lowers the assault fine to 40 gold. Nords... fight a lot. Especially against the Thalmor: You will NEVER get a murder fine from the cities if you murder a Thalmor in public. Everyone hates those fascists that much. In fact, the holds that are aligned with the Stormcloak faction will help you murder them, and then try to buy YOU off by bribing you with a "Let's sweep this assault fine under the rug, and you keep butchering Thalmor" deal. If you're in good standing with the Thieves' Guild, you can bribe away murder for a tenth of the cost, though subsequent bribes cost more.
