* Ezri Dax also tries this once in ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'', but her "static" sounds so ridiculous that Ben isn't fooled for a second. (Of course, any engineer could probably tell the difference even with a really good static impression.) The looks on the faces of the people in Ops are [[CrowningMomentOfFunny something to behold]].

* ''Series/KolchakTheNightStalker''. In the episode "The Vampire", IntrepidReporter Kolchak is sent to Los Angeles to get a story. While talking on the phone to his editor in Chicago, he puts a towel over the phone and uses an electric razor near the phone. He wants to make it seem like the line is full of static to he doesn't have to answer the editor's questions. When he gets tired of this he hangs up, assuming that the editor will think they were cut off.

The order to retreat was given only to allow Nelson to keep his honor (and his life) if Nelson and his force were in no condition to continue the battle.[[note]]Keep in mind that this was about a generation after the execution of [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Byng Admiral John Byng]] for failing to "do his utmost" to prevent his post from falling into the hands of the enemy, and the relevant laws were still on the books.]]

** In the episode "The Singularity", Fitz and Simmons do this to Mack during a mission so they can have a long-overdue conversation about their relationship. Mack isn't fooled either; Bobbi Morse and Lance Hunter used to do the same thing to him on assignments. Luckily, he (like everyone else on Coulson's team) [[ShipperOnBoard ships Fitzsimmons]] and isn't too upset.
