* ''Film/TheMask'': A police lieutenant orders the Mask's pockets to be emptied. We cut to another scene. Cut back, and they're ''still'' being emptied... of things like a bazooka ("I have a permit for that.") and a picture of the lieutenant's wife in lingerie, with an invitation to call her on it.

The ''Literature/ProvostsDog'' books [[UpToEleven go one better]] with a protagonist who, after one glance and without looking back, can reel off a complete list of places on his body a new character has knives hidden, even remembering to add that there might be one in his belt buckle if it's a design she doesn't know.
