* In ''DocSidhe'' by Creator/AaronAllston, the central character does this. He's quite aware of what a cliche it is, but in the Pulp action elfland he's in, it works. The way the driver and passengers cheered when he said it startled him so much he nearly fell off the car.

* Played with in ''Film/RushHour2'', when detective Carter is in Hong Kong and orders a taxi driver to follow a car. The driver doesn't move and keeps speaking Chinese to him (with no subtitles for non-Chinese-speaking viewers). After a few back-and-forth exchanges, Carter slips him some money, whereupon the driver says (in English) "Now you're speaking my language" and steps on the gas. As a BilingualBonus, the Chinese phrase that the driver repeated to Carter translates to "Money first."
