** Now, for added confusion, consider the implications when a Deaf person is trying to communicate (either with no sign-language interpreter, or with a sign-language interpreter '''not''' familiar Autistic communication difficulties) with an Autistic person. When this happens, it's [[DudeNotFunny not recommended]] to PassThePopcorn.

* Towards the end of ''PrideAndPrejudice'', Mrs. Bennet is trying to get Jane and Mr. Bingley alone and keeps winking at her other daughters to get them to leave. Elizabeth just ignores this, but finally Kitty asks explicitly why her mother keeps winking at her. Mrs. Bennet denies everything.

* Near the beginning of ''Literature/WolfHall'', Thomas Cromwell laments that he has no way to signal to Wolsey that he shouldn't be ripping Thomas Boleyn a new one; somehow there's no discreet Italian hand signal for "Back off, the king is fucking his daughter."

* In an early episode of ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'', Data's long lost brother Lore is found and assembled. It quickly becomes evident that every time he lies, he has a facial tic so horrid that you fear he's having a seizure. Yet no member of the crew ever notices or comments on this. In the end, he actually has to point this out, [[ViewersAreMorons just in case the audience didn't figure it out.]]

* ''{{Potemayo}}'': Poor Mikan can't perceive hostility from Potemayo, no matter how often she gestures, growls or shouts ''shaaaaa!''. Jumping onto Mikan's head in a [[Franchise/{{Alien}} facehugger]] fashion seems to work.
