* Will uses a version of this when infiltrating an enemy camp in one of the ''Literature/RangersApprentice'' books. Knowing people are less likely to bother him if he looks like he's doing something, he grabs an empty bucket, goes to the kitchen tent, and says "John sent me for water", on the basis that, in a camp that size, there'd be about thirteen "John"s and the cook wouldn't bother asking every one for confirmation.

* TheWestWing has a variation on this, where telling a Secret Service agent that "you're here for the card game" will let you into an AlcoholicsAnonymous meeting for high-level politicians (up to the Vice President).
