* In the ''WebVideo/StarTrekContinues'' episode "Fairest of Them All", which takes place in the mirror universe, Spock gradually recruits crewmembers to mutiny and stop the ruthless behavior typical of the Empire. With Kirk on the brink of insanity, he meets him alone in a rec room and [[spoiler: quietly goads him into saying (more like shrieking at the top of his lungs) what he really thinks of the crew... then steps aside to reveal that [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome he had the intercom on the whole time]]]] and [[spoiler: [[OhCrap everybody on the entire ship heard that.]]]]

* 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..."

* Occurs toward the end of the classic ''A Face in the Crowd'' from 1957. Antihero "Lonesome" Rhodes spends the bulk of the film riding his television-friendly image to fame and power, cynically hiding his true nature behind an aw-shucks façade. [[spoiler:At the conclusion of one broadcast, Rhodes is sitting on stage with his fellow performers, apparently engaging in casual chitchat. As the show's theme music dominates the soundtrack, the home viewers can't hear what Rhodes is really saying: he's expressing his venomous contempt for his audience. Marcia Jeffries, a disillusioned former lover and business partner, commandeers the studio's control room and switches the audio so Rhodes's words are broadcast to the world. Rhodes is thereby ruined.]]

* ''Series/HomeImprovement'': In the episode "Let's Go To The Videotape", Tim videotapes Jill making a speech at a library fundraiser and then shows his friends at the hardware store how to use the video camera. Then, not knowing the camera is still recording, he starts complaining about how boring Jill's speech was and how he's tired of listening to her talk about her psychology classes. Of course, Jill ends up seeing the tape later, and she's not happy.

** And in "Yes, Always", Pinky does it. He makes a rude remark regarding Brain to the sound engineer, not realising that he is standing on the microphone button.
