* ''Series/BrooklynNineNine''
** In "48 Hours," Jake attempts this by bringing a guitar into the interrogation room, shredding on it, and ''screaming''. The perp is certainly exasperated, but doesn't say a word.
** In "The Box," Jake and Holt combine this with more traditional interrogation techniques... [[CallBack including using the guitar again]]! It still doesn't work. [[spoiler:What ''does'' work, however, is Jake implying that the only reason the perp was able to cover his tracks is because he's an idiot who just happened to get ''absurdly'' lucky. The perp, being a sociopath who wants everyone to know how clever he is, angrily blurts out how he planned and carried out the ''perfect'' crime.]]

* Unintentional example on ''Series/JustShootMe''. Donnie (guest star David Cross) feigns being mentally impaired in order to get out of working in [[CompanyTown the plant]] back home, and is waited on hand and foot by his family. While he's hanging out at the magazine's offices, [[StupidBoss Jack Gallo]] paternally, ''wildly'' inaccurately, and at length "explains" how the pneumatic mail system works. Donnie finally snaps and angrily corrects Jack. [[OhCrap [sigh] "Now I have to get a job."]]

Instead of physically or psychologically torturing a suspect, the protagonist simply irritates the perp into making a crucial mistake. Can be done while PerpSweating, or on the stand, as with ThePerryMasonMethod.

** Lampshaded in one episode of ''Series/LawAndOrderSpecialVictimsUnit'' when the Perp is particularly GenreSavvy. He comes ''this'' close to drinking before he realized what's going on.

* Smoothly done by Captain Carrot on Moist von Lipwig in ''[[Literature/{{Discworld}} Making Money]]'', proving himself to be the more GenreSavvy of the two in regards to PoliceProcedural.

[[AC:WesternAnimation]]
* WesternAnimation/{{Duckman}} did this once after Cornfed cleared him of King Chicken's plot to frame him. After calling King Chicken to the stand, Duckman proceeds to "interrogate" him by rambling senselessly until an annoyed King Chicken finally confesses just to shut him up.
* In one episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'', Sideshow Bob is accused of rigging the election, based on getting so many votes as a convicted felon while the other convicted felon running got so few. After Lionel Hutz' [[SarcasmMode intense interrogation]] fails, the kids badger Bob with accusations that only a Rush Limbaugh {{Expy}} could pull off such an elaborate fraud, until he snaps, [[{{Pride}} says it was him]], and pulls out a very detailed account of his scheme. He wrote ''books'' on how he pulled off electoral fraud.

* Parodied in a recurring sketch on ''TheFastShow'', in which police try this on a suspect to no avail, only for a George Smiley-like master interrogator to show up and casually ask the perp the question out of hand and have him reply without thinking.

->"''Miss Hudson? I hope you understand that this is only the beginning. In a way I feel sorry for you because from now on I'm going to do everything I can to break you down, do you understand? Doctor Fleming made one mistake and you're it. You're the weak link, Miss Hudson. Now you surprised me today because you were strong. But there's always tomorrow, and the day after that, and the day after that, and sooner or later you're gonna talk to me. Until you do you're gonna be questioned, you're gonna be followed, and you're gonna be hounded. And Doctor Fleming can't do anything about it. You're on your own, Miss Hudson, and I'm gonna get to him through you. That's a promise. ''"
