* Used in ''Series/HomeAndAway'' when Matt and Bobby cotton on to the fact that Al Simpson was the one who murdered Matt's older brother Shane years previous and put the blame on Donald Fisher. Tracking him down to his remote hiding place, the trio try to get him to admit it. Al eventually decides that it doesn't matter if he admits it: "So what if I do? I killed Shane. You hear that? I killed Shane!" Cue the detective on the case walking in and confirming that yep, he heard that all right. Made all the more delicious by the fact that Al's reaction isn't so much OhCrap as ThisIsGonnaSuck.

** Note that of Illinois' ten governors between WorldWarII and Blagojevich's term, five were tried for corruption and four were convicted. Of them, Blagojevich was the only one to be ''impeached and removed from office'' (the others had all resigned before things got that far).

* ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'': Officer Judy Hopps blackmails ConMan Nick Wilde into helping her investigation by tricking him into boasting about his success at raking in cash that hasn't been properly taxed and then playing it back with her novelty recorder pen. At the climax, this is how [[FireForgedFriends Judy and Nick]] take down the true BigBad -- [[spoiler: cornered by Bellwether and her goons, she shoots Nick with her [[HatePlague Night Howler]] serum gun, and as he menaces Judy, she gloats about how she'll turn the whole city against predators... at which point Nick and Judy reveal that he was faking having been affected (in fact, they'd managed to switch out the Night Howler pellets with blueberries), and Judy had [[CaughtOnTape recorded Bellwether's gloating ]], just as the police arrive]].
