Incidentally, if you are ever Mirandized, even if you are convinced you've done nothing wrong (in fact, ''especially'' if you are convinced you've done nothing wrong), the ''only'' words out of your mouth should be "I want a lawyer and will not consider answering questions until I have one." See [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6wXkI4t7nuc here]] for 49 minutes of [[AddedAlliterativeAppeal extremely enlightening and entertaining education]] on the topic.

topic. Seriously, the line of thought which says "OnlyBadGuysCallTheirLawyers" is wrong on more levels than we can count.

* ''Franchise/MenInBlack'': The novelizations of the first two films include one scene each where James Edwards (or Agent Jay) does a version of this - justified in that he's an officer of the NYPD when introduced. In [[Film/MenInBlack the first]], Kay shoots Jeebs' head, and Edwards (who has not yet joined the MIB and become Agent Jay) yells at him to drop his gun and "Don't make me shoot you" before Jeebs gets up as his head grows back. The novel expands this by having Edward start to Mirandize Kay, but get interrupted partway through when Kay tells him to lighten up, right before Jeebs revives.
-->'''Edwards''': "Read my lips, asshole. You are under arrest. You have the right to remain silent. If you give up that right, anything you say can and will ''no doubt'' be used against you in a court of law. You have the right to an attorney. If you cannot afford one-"
** [[Film/MenInBlackII The sequel]] has Jay doing a variation to Jeffrey, the giant worm, during its rampage through the subway:
-->'''Agent Jay''': "You have the right to remain ugly. You have the right to have your squirmy, extraterrestrial butt put in a sling for whiplashing me into that fruit stand and getting mashed banana all over my shirt. With the full powers vested in me as an agent of MIB, I hereby place you under arrest. Now pull your wiggly-ass self over!"

* ''Literature/{{Desperation}}'': Peter and Mary Jackson, a couple driving cross-country in Peter's sister's car, are pulled over by Collie Entragian on the pretext of their missing rear license plate, and arrested for possession of marijuana after Entragian finds a baggie (which actually belongs to Peter's sister) in the car trunk. One of the signs that something is very wrong is when he's Mirandizing them and includes an unexpected phrase:
-->“You have the right to remain silent,' the big cop said in his robot's voice. 'If you do not choose to remain silent, anything you say may be used against you in a court of law. You have the right to an attorney. [[BreadEggsMilkSquick I'm going to kill you.]] If you cannot afford an attorney, one will be provided for you. Do you understand your rights as I have explained them to you?”

* In ''WebComic/KevinAndKell'', when Douglas Squirrel is exposed as D.B. Cooper and arrested, they tried to read him his rights, but when they got to the 'you have the right to remain silent', he replies "Oh, I don't think so." Cut to Dorothy receiving his manuscript for ''D.B. Cooper: My Story'' and instructions to send it to every literary agent in New York.

* ''Film/AScannerDarkly''. Freck is pulled over by a police officer who cuffs him and starts reading Freck his rights but has trouble remembering them, then just loses patience and blows Freck's head off. Fortunately it turns out to be a [[AllJustADream paranoid drug-induced hallucination]].

* In "Fanfic/TheRoadNotTaken", an AUFic version of [[Fanfic/BaitAndSwitchSTO Kanril Eleya]] is the security chief for Deep Space 9 (as opposed to CO of a ''Galaxy''-class starship in the prime timeline). Early on she arrests a Klingon who's making trouble and gives an apparent Bajoran version of the Miranda warning. (The rights listed are similar to the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Miranda_warning#Israel Israeli version]].)
-->“You do not have to say anything, and anything you say may be used against you. Remaining silent may also be used as supplementary evidence. You have the right to contact a family member or acquaintance and an attorney regarding your arrest, and you may be held seventy-eight standard hours without charge. Do you understand these rights as I have explained them?”
