Corrected the Ranger's Apprentice entry under Literature
* 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.

* In one episode of {{Heartbeat}}, they tricked a porn dealer by name-dropping Claude Greengrass. "That's not the kind of name you make up." * Lois tried this trope in ''LoisAndClark'', along with "The Eagle Has Landed" and "[[ThePasswordIsAlwaysSwordfish Swordfish]]", all with no results. ("That Old Gang of Mine") * 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).
