* ''{{Series/Reba}}'': Late in the episode of "The Blond Leading the Blind", Barbra Jean reads to Reba while Reba is still recovering from her eye surgery, which Reba doesn't enjoy much, especially when Barbra Jean tries to imitate speaking in British accent while reading a Charles Dickens novel ("Were you still reading or did you just pass gas?", asks Reba). When Cheyenne arrives to take over care for Reba, Reba, thinking she's talking to Cheyenne (when, in truth, Cheyenne is going back to her car to retrieve things and Barbra Jean pretends to be Cheyenne), promptly badmouths Barbra Jean -- especially on her attempt at accent -- without realizing whom she's talking to ([[BlindMistake due to her eyes being covered while still in recovery]]) until Barbra runs off crying just as Cheyenne walks in.

* One from the UsefulNotes/ColdWar: A Russian man is staying at a hotel when his neighbors come in and start socializing loudly. He gets an idea, calls room service and asks them to bring tea to the neighbors' room, then goes to meet them. Four minutes later, he grabs the ashtray, [[BigBrotherIsWatching puts it close to his mouth,]] and says "[[StateSec Comrade major,]] could we have some tea please?". The tea arrives and the neighbors are now completely silent, even after the man leaves and goes to sleep. In the morning, he wakes up and sees that his neighbors are gone, and asks about them at the reception. The receptionist says that they were taken away by the secret police in the night, and when the man asks why he wasn't taken, she tells him "That thing with the ashtray? Comrade major thought it was funny".
