* An episode of ''Series/TheMentalist'' deals with hypnosis. Rigsby ends up assaulting a suspect during interrogation and then not remembering the act. Jane determines that he's been hypnotized. When it's pointed out that people can't be made to do things that go against their nature, Jane agrees that this applies to normal people. However, Rigsby is hardly a pacifist, so he can be hypnotized to do violent things.

She agrees, but he tells her he's ''not'' going to hypnotize her. She's too nervous, so he's most definitely ''not'' hypnotizing her... three... two... one... ''sleep''.

To cap it all off, Victor has a cold, so whenever he sneezes, Hugo turns into a tough-talking, hyper-competent gangster but changes back to his usual useless crook self whenever Victor sneezes again - always at the worst possible moment.
