** Inverted in "Psirens", a shape-shifting, brain-sucking alien monster gets on the ship and looks just like Lister. The crew try various tasks that only Lister should know but the Psiren can read Lister's mind and so mimics every action perfectly. They finally trick it by giving one Lister a guitar and telling him to play. Lister is normally the DreadfulMusician so when this Lister plays the guitar like the ghost of Jimi Hendrix they immediately blast it (Lister only believes he can play that well).

* On ''Series/TheOrville'' Mercer and Kelly come to a spaceship with a video talk with Mercer's parents who make snide remarks on Kelly (who cheated on Mercer) and ask their son how his colon is doing. When they go onto the "ship," Mercer and Kelly are transported to an alien zoo. It turns out Ed's "parents" were just a hologram created to trick them into boarding the ship. Mercer has to give props to whoever programmed the hologram as that's ''exactly'' the way his parents would have acted.

** The episode "Midnight" had a strange "detect the enemy" variant on this: [[spoiler: An alien being seems to possess a woman, and it keeps repeating whatever anyone says to it. The Doctor surmises this is its attempt at learning. Then it says things at exactly the same time as everyone else. Then it only does for it the Doctor. Then it speaks ''before'' the Doctor does... eventually, the woman seems back to normal, and the Doctor seems to be possessed. The woman convinces everyone else to throw the Doctor out the airlock... but two of the characters realize the being has just colonized the Doctor's mind and is still possessing the woman when she uses two phrases the Doctor used earlier.]]

* The phrase "As you wish" in ''Film/ThePrincessBride'' is the [[FormerTropeNamers Former Trope Namer]]. Westley, Buttercup's love, has been presumed killed,[[spoiler: but turns up as the Dread Pirate Roberts, and Buttercup recognizes him by his use of the phrase which, for him, meant "I love you." For bonus points, he gives her vague hints at first, and when she tells him "You can die too for all I care!" as she pushes him off a cliff, he ''shouts'' it as he rolls to his (apparent) doom.]] (This leads to a MyGodWhatHaveIDone moment for Buttercup.

* Done at least twice in ''WesternAnimation/JackieChanAdventures''. The first time, Jackie is split into an overly nice half and an asshole half, and when asked which is the evil one, Nice-Jackie dissolves into tears and proclaims that ''he'' must be the evil one because he just killed a bug. Cue {{aside glance}}s.
