* ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'': While Fitz and Simmons are infiltrating a fancy science party, Mack is playing MissionControl. When he mentions he doesn't think any of the attendees are scientists because they're not wearing lab coats, Fitz and Simmons get offended.
-->'''Simmons:''' Well, do you think scientists only wear lab coats? Are we wearing them now?\\
'''Fitz:''' Yeah. What, we walk around all day with goggles and gloves on, do we?

* In 1929, Tamara de Lempicka painted a rather dashing ArtDeco portrait of [[https://www.wikiart.org/en/tamara-de-lempicka/portrait-of-dr-boucard-1929 Dr. Pierre Boucard,]] suitably-attired and ready for battle with his microscopic enemy. Never before has the study of diarrhea-causing bacteria looked so glamorous!

* Labcoats in the ''VideoGame/{{Fallout}}'' games give bonuses to your Science skill, and some Medicine-boosting apparel has the same look. Both ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'' and ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'' have unique labcoats which boost both skills.

* Various kinds of doctors and scientists do, of course, use white labcoats in their professions, just not as widely as in fiction. They're fairly practical for protecting regular clothes in a chemistry lab, while not being nearly as useful for (for example) astrophysicists, who seem to lean more toward [[UsefulNotes/NeilDeGrasseTyson cool vests decorated with celestial objects]] or [[Creator/CarlSagan iconic turtlenecks]].

* Various kinds of doctors and scientists do, of course, use white labcoats in their professions, just not as widely as in fiction. As one of Ken Ham's introductory creationist ''Answers In Genesis'' videos notes in a cartoon short, popular portrayals of scientists often show them as all-knowledgeable, infallible, working in a laboratory, and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking wearing a white lab coat]]; in reality, scientists' knowledge is limited, they're fallible and subject to various biases, a lot of science is done in the field or elsewhere outside the lab, and they don't all wear white labcoats. (Here, the cartoon switches the portrayed scientist's white labcoat out for what looks to be some kind of [[AdventurerOutfit safari clothes]], presumably because he's a paleontologist or the like.)

* ''Series/{{Elementary}}'': Played with in one episode; several witnesses assume a woman is a doctor because of her white labcoat. Sherlock and Watson both immediately realize that something is wrong, since doctors never wear labcoats outside of a hospital in case they get dirty and bring pathogens back. Turns out the woman worked for an upscale perfume boutique, invoking this trope to make the place feel more scientific than it really was.
