Not to be confused with the remarkably similar, defensive stock phrase said when everyone in the room labels a character as the most likely culprit of some misdeed of which he's not (entirely) guilty by leveling him an accusing stare -- "Don't look at '''me!'''" rather than "Don't '''look''' at me!" -- which is... [[NotMeThisTime another trope entirely]]. Nor is it to be confused with the also similar stock phrase where the characters are trying to figure out an explanation for a confusing or mysterious situation, and one who is GenreSavvy, believed to have special insight, or simply intelligent enough to figure such things out is looked to, only to respond this way. It should also not be confused with a situation where the characters are trying to [[GotVolunteered single out a patsy]] to undertake [[WhoWillBellTheCat an unpleasant but necessary task]], leading the victim to offer this response.

Not to be confused with the remarkably similar, defensive stock phrase said when everyone in the room labels a character as the most likely culprit of some misdeed of which he's not (entirely) guilty by leveling him an accusing stare -- "Don't look at '''me!'''" rather than "Don't '''look''' at me!" -- which is... [[NotMeThisTime another trope entirely]]. Nor is it to be confused with the also similar stock phrase where the characters are trying to figure out an explanation for a confusing or mysterious situation, and one who is GenreSavvy, believed to have special insight, or simply intelligent enough to figure such things out is looked to, only to respond this way.
