* ''Series/JessicaJones2015'': The fake Dr. Leslie Hansen calls to meet with Trish, and insists Trish come alone. This is because she's actually [[spoiler:Jessica's mom, and she doesn't want to run the risk of hurting her daughter]]. Trish insists on going to the meeting, but Jessica, feeling that she has the upper hand being the one going in with powers, instead sidelines Trish by calling the paparazzi on her, claiming that Trish and her boyfriend Griffin are on the outs, and even sends Malcolm over to Trish's apartment to keep an eye on her.
-->'''Jessica Jones:''' "So meet me tonight and come alone." Could this be any more cloak-and-dagger?

* Discussed in ''NowhereMan''. Thomas Veil is an {{Unperson}} who is being called by a MysteriousInformant with information about why his life was taken away. He schedules a time and place for them to meet. A suspicious Tom tells him he forgot to say come alone. The informant didn't say it because he knows in Tom's situation he has no friends or anyone he can trust so he felt no need to mention it.

** In "A Game of Thrones", Cersei agrees to meet Lord Eddard Stark alone in the godswood, because he's uncovered evidence of her treason and incest and she can't afford to have witnesses. The fact that Stark called for the meeting instead of going straight to the King suggests he's open for negotiation (he's not, but offers her a chance to take her children and flee).

* ''Film/{{Runaway}}''. Sergeant Ramsey agrees because the villain's extensive use of electronic surveillance would mean he'd know if someone came with Ramsey. His partner decides to show up anyway, which is just as well [[YouSaidYouWouldLetThemGo because the villain has no intention of keeping his word.]]
