* ''Film/{{Speed}}'' has an interesting example: everyone assumes the villain is watching the drama unfold via the news stations, who have naturally put all their helicopters on the scene for the story. They assume that when they drive onto an airfield, he will be unable to follow them (airfields are restricted airspaces, so the news helicopters can't follow them there). But when he refers to woman driving the bus as "the Wildcat" in reference to the jacket she's wearing, the hero realizes the villain must have a camera somewhere ''inside the bus'' as well, which complicates things.

* This is generally how the killer [[spoiler:or, as we later learn, killers]] from ''Franchise/{{Scream}}'' operates. It's first done during the opening sequence, with Casey getting calls from an ostensible "wrong number" who appears to be rather nice, but instantly turns menacing as hell with this exchange:
-->'''Caller:''' You never told me your name.
-->'''Casey:''' Why do you want to know my name?
-->'''Caller:''' Because I want to know who I'm looking at.

* ''The Art of War'' (2000). Shaw rings up the InspectorJavert who's been chasing him, and says there's a rifle pointed at his rookie partner, who's standing next to him holding his umbrella. The cop quips, "I can live with that", but agrees to ComeAlone to meet Shaw after a silenced shot cuts the umbrella shaft in two. There's also a silent version when the heroine is trying to sneak out of a building, but the hitman is in the security room watching her, and activates an escalator just as she's about to step on it.
