* In ''Film/{{xXx}}'', protagonist Xander Cage is abducted from his home by government agents, and wakes up the next day in a busy road diner. Shortly after there's a stick-up by two armed men, but Cage easily dispatches both of them, even brazenly walking into the line of fire of the second gunman before taking his weapon. Agent Augustus Gibbons reveals himself and states it to be a test which Cage passed, but asks how he knew. Cage [[SherlockScan points out all the increasingly unlikely discrepancies he noticed before the hold-up]]; he can believe that the first gunman was using a cop-issue Beretta and even that the second gunman would be all dressed up and reading a financial newspaper for a day when the stock market's closed, but they blew it with the waitress. Because his aunt was one, he knows that no career waitress would come to work in high heels because it would just cause blisters, so he realized the whole thing was fake and the guns only had blanks.

* An early storyline of ''{{ER}}'' had a doctor and her husband being diagnosed with HIV. The husband had not known about this and accidentally infected a co-worker during a work-related accident. The co-worker saw the doctor and her husband in a diner in one episode and began to harass them until the husband stepped in and fought him. It was one of the more dramatic examples of this trope.
