There are only so many places a person can hide, but one that's available in most indoor locations is the common curtain. When someone's coming and you've got to get out of sight quick, just duck behind one of these and you're golden. Oh, drapery-- where would ExactEavesdropping and [[HilarityEnsues Wacky Hijinx]] be without you?

* The 1922 version of ''Film/{{Robin Hood|1922}}'' scores triple points. Mooks in the castle see Robin's shoes beneath the curtain, but Robin put them there as a distraction while he went elsewhere.

* ''Series/DoctorWho'': In "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS36E11WorldEnoughAndTime World Enough and Time]]", Bill attempts to hide behind a curtain in the hospital. Not very well, as the IV stand she is hooked up to is still outside the curtain.

* Subverted in the ''WesternAnimation/VeggieTales'' movie ''The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything''. The villains have captured the prince and are now looking for his little sister, and one of them flings a curtain aside when he thinks she's hiding behind it. She's not. He gives up in frustration, [[GaveUpTooSoon unaware that she's actually hiding under the floorboards.]]
