* Subverted here: during an open-source science conference, this guy catches a couple of startup entrepreneurs presenting his technology as if it was theirs. His reaction? He climbs on stage, slams the microphone on the ledger, pushes them aside, and finishes the presentation himself by shouting at the audience. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tMKDTTZgu1M

A common variation has Alice acting as though she has not heard Bob's suggestion at all, and then repeating it word-for-word as though she had just thought of it. This variation is important: without it, the character who's "glad they thought of it" technically isn't lying - they did think of it, as a consequence of someone else's voicing the idea; what they're lacking is the acknowledgement "... because you said it", and that lack is the essence of the trope. If she honestly hadn't heard the plan before independently suggesting it, it's a case of StrangeMindsThinkAlike.
