* Subverted in Christmas song "Baby It's Cold Outside". It is about a man trying to convince a woman not to leave during a storm. It contains the lyrics "What's in this drink?". That line, along with the man's aggressive attitude, leads modern viewers to view it as this. However, the original intention was that the woman really wants to stay longer but denies it. The "drink" line is supposed to be her simply asking what's in the drink, nothing more. Due to the ValuesDissonance, many covers either replace or outright remove the line.

When this is done by adding a lethal drug to outright kill someone, see TamperingWithFoodAndDrink. Especially in older works, a PoisonRing is used to dump the drug into the beverage.

** In another episode, Harold's then-partner Dillinger finally brings Harold the correct type of tea; Harold barely registers this enough to be grateful, but does take a couple sips while trying to work and talk at the same time. Halfway through realizing that Dillinger's got a different plan, Harold starts feeling the effects and glances at the tea cup in horror. One has to wonder if Dillinger had been faking his failure to learn/remember the right tea brand, just to have this ace in the hole. (Not to mention how much sedative was in the drink, given that two sips easily knocked Harold out within a couple minutes -- what would've happened if he had gulped it down instead?)
