* In the pilot movie/first two episodes of ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice'', Kid Flash takes issue with Robin's disappearing act antics and calls him on it: "Way to be a team player, Rob." He comes down hard on the nickname, and it's clear to the viewer that it's a placeholder for Robin's real first name, which Kid Flash knows, and happens to be Richard, also known as Dick.

* [[Literature/JeevesAndWooster Jeeves]] would, of course, ''never'' actually swear, but Bertie Wooser did on one occasion point out that Jeeves has a way of saying "Well, sir," and "Indeed, sir," that sometimes leaves the impression that only a rudimentary feudal sense of what is fitting restrains him from substituting those phrases the words "Says you!"

* Everyone in [[SweetHomeAlabama the South]] knows that "Bless your heart" isn't a blessing. More often that not, it's more likely to be SugaryMalice, "blessing" them in the context of "please protect this idiot since he's too stupid to help himself." It can also be a type of preemptive apology, using it to sweeten a not-so-nice comment ("Bless his heart, that's the ugliest baby I've ever seen.")
** Similarly, 'gotta love you/him/her' means "I despise. . .", and "I'll pray for you" means "I hope you rot in hell." Also, if someone asks you to do something you don't want to do, you say, "I'll pray over/think about it," meaning "I'd rather eat ground glass."
