* In ''WebComic/StandStillStaySilent'', Emil accidentally breaks a wing mirror off the tank right before his uncle and employer comes to give it a look. His reaction is to throw the thing as hard as he can and claim it was already broken. Fortunately, the only witnesses are his new commanding officer who immediately plays along with the story and a colleague who doesn't share a language with anyone else present. Unfortunately, the mirror's landing place starts a chain of events that eventually gives the main cast a stowaway.

* In the ''Series/EnemyAtTheDoor'' episode "Judgement of Solomon", two sixteen-year-old boys are caught with a camera in a restricted zone, and developing the film shows that they've been taking photos of German military installations. Not wishing to apply the mandatory death sentence for espionage to a pair of children, Major Richter orders the officer investigating the matter to destroy the prints and negatives and proceed as if the boys had been found trespassing with no evidence of their intentions.
