* Carrie Heffernan in ''Series/KingOfQueens'' generally resents her lowly status as a legal secretary/PA and continually strives to be seen as something more than this. But she isn't above playing on the Sexy Secretary trope for favors from her less politically correct bosses.

* Provides a moment of levity in the film ''SchindlersList'': the viewer is treated to a montage of Schindler "testing" all the young female applicants to be his secretary. He flirts outrageously with each of them, then there's a shot of a grim middle-aged woman hammering away expertly at the test typewriter, with Schindler glumly slouched beside her.

Added DiffLines:

* Akiyama Kaede from ''Manga/KenganAshura'', she is hot but of the composed variety, not flaunting her goods, the numerous fighters from the Kengan Association keep hitting on her.

* Moneypenny from the ''Film/JamesBond'' movies (and all subsequent parodies of her). Note that in [[Literature/JamesBond the original stories]] she was more dowdy.
** Actually, the original stories describe her with the adjective "desirable" through the series. There turns out to be a lot behind the secretary who inspired Ian Fleming, and the actress who played her for two decades [[http://www.macleans.ca/article.jsp?content=20071015_110172_110172&source=srch]].

** The new British boss' male assistant (effectively a secretary) is considered absolutely heavenly by all of the younger American (female) secretaries. They particularly like his voice and accent, complete with the line about listening to him read the phone book.
** All of them. Probably even Miss "Queen of Perversions" Blankenship, in her day.
** This is actually a recurring plot point--as Joan mentions in Season 4, it's not uncommon for men to hook up with and/or marry their secretaries. Sterling does it early on, eventually marrying Don's secretary; Harry Crane gets ExiledToTheCouch for it; and Don himself had a fling with Allison and [[spoiler:ends up proposing to current secretary Megan by the end of Season 4]].

* John Nike from ''JenniferGovernment'' muses at one point how, while hot secretaries are fun, they are ultimately [[AwesomeButImpractical impractical]] (since they inevitably wind up demanding, and your books never get filed properly).

* The clueless secretary in ''TrickyBusiness'', hired solely on the basis of having a cleavage a small dog could get lost in. A defining moment would be when her wanabbe criminal mastermind boss tells the media scrum outside that he's not here, at which point she goes outside to proclaim "He says he's not here".
