* ''Series/{{JAG}}: In "Shadow", the villain Grover mandates that the naval personnel address him as either [[TheyCallMeMisterTibbs "Sir" or "Mr. Grover"]]. He gleefully notices when Meg manages to do exactly that while making it sound as disrespectful as possible.

* In ''Film/ThreeHundred'', Leonidas tells the traitor [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ephialtes_of_Trachis Ephialtes]] "May you live forever". TruthInTelevision, as according to the Greek historian Herodotus, Leonidas had said something very similar, and it was considered a grave insult in Spartan culture, who venerated death in battle.

* In the GrandFinale issue of ''ComicBook/SuperiorSpiderMan'', all it takes is one quip for the Green Goblin to realize he's not dealing with the so called "Superior" one whom the Goblin had been taunting and playing with, but the original "Amazing" one, who always beats him, and whose return he was ''not'' expecting. He says "It's you", but the inflection is way more OhCrap.

* Commander Peepers in ''WesternAnimation/WanderOverYonder'' episode "The Fremergency Fronfracts" always, ''always'' addresses Lord Hater as "sir", no matter what. But after an indeterminate period of time during which he was drugged and suggestible, spent with the fun loving good guy Wander, Hater opened fire on his own troops, injuring all of them. So when Hater comes to and professes his memory of doing so must have been just a dream, Peepers' response of "If only, sir," makes that last word sound like he would have used something else if not for Hater retaliating (and, y'know, DisneyXD standards).

** ''Discworld/NightWatch'' has a Sergeant who doesn't swear for religious reasons, so uses this trope to compensate. At one point he calls a bunch of militia recruits "You sons of mothers!".

Added DiffLines:

* The ''Film/CarryOn'' films seemed to ''invert'' this trope by making swear words sound like normal conversation. To name a few, "[[Film/CarryOnDick the Blasted Oak]]", "[[Film/CarryOnAgainDoctor the Bleeding Ceremony]]" and "[[Film/CarryOnDick the Old Cock]]" -- the first and last being a street and a pub, and the one in the middle being the name of a wedlock ritual. Say these three phrases out loud like it's a parenthetical swear if you don't believe us.
