*Inverted and then played straight in ''Fanfic/TheKeysStandAlone: The Soft World''. Every time the four encounter someone they think is a telepath, they think nasty things at him or her, with no result. Until John, telepathically speaking with Trelayna, realizes what a whack job she is—and she immediately starts chiding him for slandering her with his half-formed thoughts and ideas.
**Also, after their unnerving discussion with the Pyar gods, the four have an anguished telepathic conference where the possibility of losing their souls comes up:
-->Ringo: THIS WOULD BE THE PERFECT SOLUTION FOR ME! DON'T YOU SEE? THIS WAY I CAN HAVE EVERYTHING! I DON'T HAVE TO SACRIFICE ANYTHING!
-->George: Except your soul, maybe, but what's a soul compared to all that other stuff?
-->Ringo: GO FUCK YOURSELF, GEORGE.
-->George: You know I'm right. And I know you know I'm right. You can't hide it here, we all feel it off you. You're like a big emotional lighthouse.
-->Ringo: … AHH, FUCK.

A character is thinking something either unflattering or romantic about another character. He's rambling on via internal monologue without a care in the world...until he remembers that the character he's thinking about [[MindReading can read minds]]. Still speaking only in his head, he gasps, "Oh God, did she just hear that?" The answer is ''always'' "Of course she did."

* A dramatic version from ''Series/{{Angel}}'', where Lorne can read people's auras and thoughts when they sing. Wesley is meant to be taking baby Connor for the night, picking him up from current babysitter Lorne, but actually plans on kidnapping him (for complicated, if well-intentioned, reasons). He nearly escapes without suspicion, but when Connor starts to fuss Wesley unconsciously hums a lullaby to him, before meeting Lorne's eye and [[OhCrap realising what he's just done]].
* Used word-for-word (save for "he" instead of "she") in ''Series/{{Heroes}}'' between Audrey and the telepathic Matt.
