* The Creator/CornellWoolrich novel ''PhantomLady'' includes a sequence in which the girlfriend of the imprisoned protagonist, believing a certain bartender has information that will [[ClearTheirName clear his name]], spends several days stalking the bartender. She goes to his place of employment, spends his entire shift nursing one drink and staring at him, follows him home and stands below his window, and generally cultivates an appearance of creepy, unsleeping inescapability. The barman begins cracking under the strain, and just when the girl is ready to call her FriendOnTheForce to interrogate him in earnest, [[spoiler:he becomes so terrified of her that he dashes into traffic and is killed]].

* This is [=DiNozzo's=] preferred method of interrogation in {{NCIS}}. It's also highly effective, at various times getting information out of a suspect simply by playing Tetris during an interrogation, or by [[spoiler:getting the head of ''Mossad'' to admit to illegal activities]] simply by annoying the hell out of him.

* Note that in real life, this sort of thing and the techniques mentioned on this page may well get someone to 'confess', when really they have nothing to do with the case. As such, the legality of exasperating a suspect is very questionable.

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

** Detective Goren from ''LawAndOrderCriminalIntent'' is rather fond of this technique (seeming to prefer it to gathering actual evidence). Him being an expert in human behavior, he always knows exactly how to anger his suspect into confessing and/or implicating their partner.
