* ''Series/MalcolmInTheMiddle'': In the episode "Pearl Harbor," Malcolm and Reese need to get back at Jessica for making them both think the other was gay, so Reese gives Malcolm a hickey and Malcolm [[ReversePsychology fervently denies it when his mother thinks Jessica did it]]. Lois takes Jessica into her room to give her a talk, and Jessica breaks down and says that she only did it to keep Malcolm away from a troubled druggie girl, and it was all just a big mistake. [[spoiler:Lois sees through the whole thing--and every other lie in the episode--but congratulates her on the excellent improv]].

* This is brilliantly used in ''Film/TheUsualSuspects''. At the end we find out that [[spoiler: the story told by Verbal Kint was based on names and phrases he read from objects in the room where he is interrogated.]] We never find out how much of it was actually true.

Asking where she lives, [[MathematiciansAnswer Lisa tells them she lives "off-campus"]], and when they take her home, they hear Homer singing ([[SomethingSomethingLeonardBernstein well, trying to sing]]) "Tubthumping" inside, before hurling a keg out the window.

* George on ''{{Seinfeld}}'' is usually terrible at lying, but he does have one shining moment when he sneaks an IQ test to supposed genius Elaine to take for him, then has to explain the food stains she got on it by concocting an elaborate story about how he went out the window to get some snacks.
