* In ''[[Film/CharliesAngels Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle]]'', the heroes are surrounded by TheDragon and an army of gun-toting mooks, but Alex is able to kill the lights, forcing blind fire while the women slip (or, rather, front-flip) behind them. While the mooks scramble for the lights, the trio silently communicates via tapping Morse into each other's palms before the lights come back on.

Incidentally, Morse Code is, for official purposes, obsolete: In 1999, it was retired as the international standard, and in 2007, the FCC dropped requirements for Morse proficiency for amateur radio operators. Unofficially, it's still used by Navies frequently, and Morse proficiency is necessary for communication-based rates.

Incidentally, Morse Code is, is officially obsolete for official purposes, obsolete: radio communications: In 1999, it was retired as the international standard, and in 2007, the FCC dropped requirements for Morse proficiency for amateur radio operators. Unofficially, It hasn't gone away completely, however: It's still in semi-official use by most navies with signal lamps, and by amateurs: [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amateur_radio_propagation_beacon Propogation beacons]] used to gauge atmospheric conditions and estimate their current effective transmission range identify themselves by a two-letter callsign in Morse, for example, and it's traditional (and in some places was once required) for a [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amateur_radio_repeater repeater]] to send its station callsign in Morse at regular intervals. A surprising number of particularly dedicated old-school hams are still used by Navies frequently, and Morse proficiency is necessary for communication-based rates.

* In ''Series/{{Castle}}'' when the titular author and his mother are being held hostage in a bank, he uses a reflection off her bracelet to flash out a Morse Code message to the police outside. The message is short (SDB 147), and he repeats it several times before Beckett even figures out that it is a message. We get a brief glimpse of the paper she jotted it down on, showing that she needed time to figure out what exactly he was saying. Castle's the sort of person who once had his daughter duct tape him to a chair and leave the house to figure out how a character would get out of it, so learning Morse Code is very much in the realm of reality for him, whereas Beckett had access to Google, if nothing else, so whether or not she actually knew Morse or not wasn't really addressed.

Added DiffLines:

* ''[[Literature/TheGreatMerlini The Footprints on the Ceiling]]'': None of the characters know Morse, which causes immediate suspicion when Merlini and Ross see a window light blinking on and off. While Dr. Gail doesn't know Morse, he ''does'' have an encyclopedia -- he looked up the code, transcribed a "call the cops" message, and tried sending it via light switch. "At least, that's what I hope I was sending." (Though since the CutPhoneLines had been temporarily patched, it didn't matter.)

* In an episode of ''Series/MacGyver'', where Murdoc is hot on his trail in an off-season backwoods cabin location, Mac climbs a telephone pole and uses a copper bracelet to tap SOS directly into a phone line to summon help. The owner of the general store who hears the interference is retired military.
