This will inevitably lead to a situation where the prompter is distracted by something and says or does something not meant to be heard and repeated, but the person on the other end [[RepeatAfterMe faithfully mimics it anyway]]. The IdiotBall is promptly passed to the person wearing the earpiece as they do as they were instructed, never considering even for a second that screaming out "OH GOD! NOT THE FACE!" might not be the best thing to do while you're trying to impress your dream date in a crowded restaurant.

* On one episode of ''Series/MuppetsTonight'' with guest star Cindy Crawford, mumbling security guard Bobo the Bear develops a crush on her. They hook him up an earpiece so that Rizzo the Rat can feed him the lines, but Rizzo's nephews (coming home from somewhere with balloons) walk in, leading Bobo to hear and repeat: [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar "Hey that's a nice set of balloons, maybe you'll let me play with them later."]], followed by getting PunchedAcrossTheRoom.

* In ''Film/NowYouSeeMe2'', the CEO of Octa, Owen Case, is hyponotized by Merritt to repeat whatever Merritt says to him through an earpiece and set up in front of a camera. The Horsemen's show begins, and Owen is placidly repeating everything Merritt says. Suddenly the show is interrupted by both a mysterious voice and the FBI and the Horsemen have to make a quick escape which involves sliding down a chute from the top of the building. The wild ride causes all the Horsemen, including Merritt to scream as they go. Owen, still hypnotized, stands in front of the camera, screaming.

* A side quest in ''VideoGame/ShadowrunReturns: Hong Kong'' involves you the PlayerCharacter being on the floor of a tech conference, guiding your team's very socially inept decker past a series of obstacles as she goes undercover through the hotel's facilities by feeding her lines across a really bad commlink connection that frequently blacks out. HilarityEnsues. Inevitably, somebody will accost you wanting to use the booth you're utilizing while the decker is accosted by a ranking member of the hotel staff. This is usually the part the stealthy option goes sideways as the player tries to juggle two conversations, but a [[TheSocialExpert good face]] can do it, and let the mission finish smoothly.

* Several instances in ''Series/PersonOfInterest'', given that [[VoiceWithAnInternetConnection Harold Finch]] usually communicates with John Reese via a hidden earpiece. In "Prisoners Dilemma", Reese has been arrested, and is being interrogated by [[FriendOnTheForce Detective Carter]], who is wearing an earpiece so [[InspectorJarvet FBI agent Donnelly]] can feed her questions he wants answered. Finch secretly hacks into the earpiece so he can also feed Carter information as well as hear Reese's answers and provide a fake background on the internet.
