** Robert, again, while trying to endear himself to [[ObnoxiousInlaws Amy's parents]], who are staying over.
---> '''Robert:''' We have a great bed, you're really going to enjoy it... Not "enjoy" enjoy. Sleep! Enjoyable sleep! Cause that's all you'll be doing, I'm sure... Which is not saying you can't do what you want cause you can... It's not like you'll be breaking any Commandments.
---> '''Ray:''' It's like your mouth is falling down the stairs.

* ''Literature/{{Victoria}}'' has main character Captain John Rumford, USMC, launching a relatively innocuous anti-feminist prank. But when called before his CO to explain himself, he handles himself poorly: rather than faking contrition, he attempts to justify himself by [[PoliticalCorrectnessGoneMad denouncing feminism in the Corps]]. That goes about as well as might be expected, which is why he spends most of the story as a ''former'' Marine.

* In the ''[=HawthoRNe=]'' episode "Final Curtain", the titular nurse keeps doing this with a doctor (or nurse, it wasn't really specified). She tries to get him to talk Arabic to a patient's husband, but (1) the husband is speaking Dari (as we find out from the Army vet nurse Sullivan) and is thus Afghani, & (2) the guy in the turban is ''Sikh'', not any kind of Muslim (and from Chicago).

* James Tobin has this happen to him in the game InThe1stDegree. He changes his story of what happened between him and Zack more than once. He admits to shooting himself in the leg because he was afraid no one would believe him when he said that Zack was shot in self-defense. If you play the game right, you get to watch as the prosecutor Granger pins Tobin on the leg-shooting thing. Granger asks if Tobin's first thought was to protect himself as his own business partner was lying there at his feet bleeding to death. Tobin responds by saying no, and that he tried to give Zack CPR. Granger says "You tried giving CPR to a man who was bleeding from the throat?" Tobin then gives a "Yes! I mean...No!" Yep, Tobin is ''so'' experiencing this trope.

And anyway, listen, you could not be more different, you know, you are- you are practically, aheh, one of the guys! *Tiana looks affronted* ''Nonono'', you are not a guy! Let me begin again.

* ''Webcomic/{{Misfile}}'': Rumisiel manages to pull this big time when [[http://www.misfile.com/?page=1870 talking to Dr. Upton about his daughter.]] The comic provides a nice visual metaphor for what he's doing.

* On ''Series/{{QI}}'', a person giving an 'uninteresting' answer - a wrong answer that the elves writing the questions can predict ahead of time - gets a klaxon and loses points. David Mitchell managed to get three klaxons on one answer for arguing with the elves:
-->''[the question is "When was the First World War first named as such"]''
-->'''David:''' It's gonna be some point after 1939, isn't it.
-->''[klaxon]'' ''[screen flashes "1939"]''
-->'''David:''' Excuse me!... I ''think'' what I ''said'', people in the box, is "''after'' 1939". Which may ''contain'' 1939, but does not mean it.
-->''[klaxon]'' ''[screen flashes "AFTER THE SECOND WORLD WAR"]''
-->'''David:''' Okay! No no no! "After 1939" and "After the Second World War" are ''not'' synonymous; now this is just ''giving'' you time to ''type'' "After 1939"!
-->''[klaxon]'' ''[screen flashes "DURING THE SECOND WORLD WAR"]''

* ''WebVideo/ToddInTheShadows'' lands in this in his review of "Bang Bang" specifically talking about Ariana Grande's part, struggling to talk about the sexual nature of it without sounding like a creep. [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] heavily through various screen pop-ups like "Breaking News: Todd in big trouble." and "Todd digging hole even deeper."
