* ''Series/BlakesSeven''. In "Sarcophagus", Avon and Tarrant are bickering over who should be TheCaptain. When the MonsterOfTheWeek takes over the ship, Avon tells Tarrant they shouldn't just charge onto the flight deck and confront it. Tarrant proceeds to do just that, whereupon Avon gives his trademark mysterious smirk.

* In Radio/OldHarrysGame, Edith the historian declares that she'll only write Satan's biography if he uncovers who murdered her. Satan refuses, insisting there's no point and that he has better things to do. Then she decides that it's probably beyond him, and he instantly shifts gears.

* Parodied by the ''Film/ScoobyDoo'' film, where Daphne confuses the heck out of some guy with a chicken who tells her not to go to a haunted house by wondering aloud whether he's using reverse psychology, reverse reverse psychology, reverse reverse reverse psychology, or something else entirely. Upshot: she's going to look for clues there.
