* ''Cop'' (1988) opens with an unseen burglar trying to report a murdered woman in a house he'd broken into. After a comic sequence of him trying to get past this trope, he gives up and calls the operator, offering to pay for his call with some stolen credit cards. The operator decides to connect him to the detective protagonist instead.

But when Steve asks for billing, the machine reroutes them to Barbara Billingsley (of [[LeaveItToBeaver June Cleaver]] and [[{{Airplane}} Jive-talking Lady]] fame).
