* It is possible for actors and actresses to be given Safe Words during scenes, where their character is meant to be in danger and/or pain (e.g. drawn-out death scenes in the Film/{{Final Destination}} franchise) for when they themselves are experiencing real pain, as simply screaming "Stop!" or "Help!" could easily be misconstrued as adlibbing, which they have been most likely told to do in these scenes.

* Early on in the American ''Series/QueerAsFolk'', Michael gets drawn into a night out at a sports bar with the female coworker who's crushing on him (and whom he's letting crush on him as a cover at work) and another, very straight/homophobic coworker and her husband. He and Brian joke beforehand about having a safe word ("buttplug") for when the night gets to be intolerable. Crammed into a booth with a beard he likes and loud homophobes he doesn't, trying to pretend to be straight, Michael is so miserable he ends up muttering "buttplug" to himself within minutes of his arrival, and on taking a call from Brian (turning around in the booth and leaning out the back of it, which apparently allows him not to be heard) immediately starts with, "BUTTPLUG BUTTPLUG BUTTPLUG!"

* A similar thing in an episode of ''MadAboutYou'', when Jamie ropes Paul into making a new "I ♥ NY" commercial. They talked about having a code word, like "paramecium" or "Estes Kefauver", but never actually settled on one. Then they were on the set, and by now it's way too late to back out:

** [[JustifiedTrope He also gives a very good reason why certain safe words are better than others and why it should be something you would never say otherwise]], as it can be said by accident and cause confusion for your partner.
