* In ''Webcomic/BramAndVlad'', there is [[http://www.theduckwebcomics.com/Bram_and_Vlad/5496042/ a strip with this title]] about Vlad (literally) hanging on the ceiling of Bram's house, holding Bram's math notebook. No context is provided or asked. [[http://www.theduckwebcomics.com/Bram_and_Vlad/5472592/ In another strip]], while this trope is not mentioned verbatim, it is silently implied by Bram when Bessie asks about the Van Helsings' eye jar. Which is [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin a jar full of eyes]].

* 1. As a response to "How was your day?". Used this way, it implies that it's been a very bad day indeed.
* 2. As a response to "How did ''that'' happen?". Used this way, it implies ItsALongStory.
* 3. As a response to "How do ''you'' know that?". used this way, it implies a more detailed answer would provide TooMuchInformation.
* 4. Before anybody could even ask when they see the character in something awkward.

** Madam Pomfrey seems to know not to ask. In all her years at Hogwarts she probably has seen a fair share of students with injuries the result of things students shouldn't be doing. Just looks at Ron's dragon bite there's no way that she bought Ron's story that a dog bit him.Also given her status as a healer it's very likely she knew Hermione had a mishap with Pollyjuice Potion. There might be a good reason for this. If these students were reluctant to go to Madam Pomfrey for fear that their rule-breaking would be found out, they would be likely to leave their injuries untreated. Could also be a case of [[YouDontWantToKnow I Dont Want To Know.]]
