* On ''Series/{{Heroes}}'', [[TheProfessor Mohinder]] comes home and surprises a Company agent searching (and bugging) his apartment. The agent claims to be an exterminator, and protests "this man pulled a gun on me" to a neighbor witnessing the ensuing fight. Of course, the gun holster exposed under the agent's jacket makes this lie [[ImplausibleDeniability rather obvious]].
