* Breaking Bad's spinoff Series/BetterCallSaul has Daniel, who is horrible at hiding the fact that he deals drugs. When the police catch onto him, Jimmy has to come up with an excuse to explain how he got so much money, and why he has a secret compartment in his house. What does he come up with? He tells the officers that Daniel makes "Squat Cobbler" videos (a sex fetish involving sitting in pies while wearing a costume and crying) for a rich client. That would be embarrassing enough, but unfortunately for poor Daniel, the policemen ask to see the videos as proof, so he has no choice but to actually make such a video.

'''Monica:''' Oh, is it the same thing Chandler has?
** Then there was the arc when Chandler and Monica were seeing each other but didn't want anyone else to know. Except Joey had figured it out (yes, ''[[TooDumbToLive that]]'' Joey) and they had sworn him to secrecy. This, of course, meant that he had to cover for their slip-ups, such as when Chandler's underpants were found in Monica's apartment ("Oh, they're mine."). This culminated in Monica and Chandler "outing" Joey as a sex addict to the group, at which point he turns the tables on them by announcing that he had slept with Monica in London and she'd become obsessed with trying to get him back in the sack ever since. Monica's forced to endorse his version, thus keeping the secret, allowing Joey to get a little revenge for the way he'd been taken for granted and - most importantly of all - protecting his reputation as TheCasanova.
