* ''Literature/CiaphasCain'': In the short story ''The Little Things'', a gang of kidnappers has targeted a young noblewoman and plans to get their hands on her by substituting for the room service waiters. Unfortunately for them, the "noblewoman" was one of Inquisitor Vail's undercover identities, and that room service order was for a romantic dinner between her and Cain. [[{{Understatement}} It didn't go well for them.]]

* ''Film/{{Commando}}''. Matrix has just killed Sully and is searching his room when BadAss villain Cooke arrives outside. Cindy answers the door with her shirt open and a coy smile, claiming she's "Room service" (implying she's an escort). Cooke is suspicious and makes her stand back from the door, but still misses Matrix hiding behind it.
