* An episode of ''EmptyNest'' has Dr. Harry Weston fielding calls from the public on a radio talk show. After an incredibly long day, Harry declared, "Thank God that's over, because I ''really'' have to go to the bathroom!", leading his embarrassed producer to tell him to turn off his microphone.

* During the 1994 Olympics, skater Nancy Kerrigan was waiting backstage for gold medalist Oksana Baiul for the medal ceremony to take place. After having skated the best performance of her life, not to mention having come back from a disastrous year and a vicious attack, Nancy was already irritated at having lost by an uber-slim margin (a mere tenth of a point gave Baiul the gold medal over her). Further annoyed both by the delay and then upon being told that the delay was because Baiul was putting on more makeup (wrongly, as it turns out, the delay was because the Ukrainian flag and a tape of the Ukrainian Anthem could not be found), Kerrigan promptly snapped, "But she's just going to get out here and cry again anyway, so what's the big deal?". What Kerrigan didn't realize was that there was an open mike nearby and her snippy remark was just broadcasted to countless people. It was the first of a handful of missteps Kerrigan made that briefly tarnished her "America's Sweetheart" reputation that had been bestowed following her attack.

* One episode of ''WesternAnimation/CelebrityDeathmatch'' had the show sponsored by the Big Bull Beer Company, but after the company owner canceled the agreement after a particularly ugly fight that ended up toppling his ProductPlacement, Nick and Johnny are told by the stagehand "We're clear," and they're finally able to vent at not only the man's pushiness but also the low quality of the beer. It's then that Johnny notices something amiss...and says the trope as he realizes their gripe was CaughtOnTape.

* Used and lampshaded several times in the ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'' episode "You Debt Your Life." The school's morning announcement readers repeatedly get DrunkWithPower, only to be deposed by this. The crème de la crème comes after Principal Lewis has cancelled the announcements and grumbles about why he ever quit being a cocaine dealer in South America, where he had all the money, blow, and girls ("...not women, ''[[{{Lolicon}} girls!]]''") he could ever want. Then a teacher tells him that the mike is still on; cue hearty PrecisionFStrike.

* Twice in ''Film/{{Apollo 13}}'': the first time, Jim Lovell uses some colorful language while attempting a tricky bit of piloting, not realizing (until MissionControl informs him) that his mike is live. Later, the astronauts are having a heated argument when Houston calls; Lovell snaps, "Are we on [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Voice-operated_switch VOX]]?" This time they aren't, and he's able to switch to polite-and-professional mode before answering. The first one actually happened, the second was made up by the film makers. Another, more serious live-mike mistake Lovell actually made on that mission: "Well, I'm afraid this is going to be the last lunar mission for a long time..."
