* ''WesternAnimation/{{Archer}}'', in its typical parody/deconstruction of all things Spy Genre, uses this trope a few times. An early episode of the first season has Archer training Cyril to be a field agent and lays out a hypothetical scenario where its unclear if this is in effect or if the three muscle-bound guys at the door really are hotel employees (Archer's point being that you can solve the problem either way by brandishing your gun at them: killing them if they are assassins or scaring them into not asking for a tip if they are just employees). It is later played straight in the second season when Archer is trying to protect a JailBait German heiress from kidnappers at a ski resort.

in its typical parody/deconstruction of all things Spy Genre, uses this trope a few times. An early episode of ''Training Day": Archer, while explaining the first season has Archer training [[ChekhovsGun Chekhov Gun]], gives Cyril to be a field agent and lays out a hypothetical scenario where its unclear if this is of being in effect a Caribbean bungalow, getting high with an exotic woman who may or if the may not be an assassin when room service arrives with champagne (implied to [[NoodleIncident an incident]] in Archer's career).
--->'''Archer:''' Who ordered champagne?
--->'''Cyril:''' How should I know?
--->'''Archer:''' Exactly! You're baked! You can't remember! But since when does it take
three muscle-bound huge, surly Jamaican guys at the door really are hotel employees (Archer's point being that you can solve the problem either way by brandishing your gun at them: killing them if they are assassins or scaring them into not asking for to deliver one bottle of champagne?
--->'''Cyril:''' Oh, because they're assassins, too!
--->'''Archer:''' Or, maybe one guy's
a tip if they are just employees). It is later played straight in new waiter, the second season when one's training him, and the third is from maintenance finally off his lazy ass to fix the A/C!
--->'''Cyril:''' Oh. Yeah. I guess that could happen.
--->'''Archer:''' Point is, you come out of the john waving this around, nobody's gonna bug you for a tip.
** In "Swiss Miss",

* In ''[[Film/OceansEleven Ocean's Thirteen]]'', this trope is employed as part of an attempt to ruin Bank's new casino. They sneak into a prestigious reviewer's room while he's out and do all sorts of nasty things to the room, placing bedbugs in the bed, dirtying things, and feeding noxious gases into the vents.
