** Meeting his "mother," Julianna, the scientist who co-built him, Data is happy to meet her. When a cave-in occurs, Julianna is revealed to actually be an android (the real Julianna died years before and her husband uploaded her brain patterns into an android without her knowledge), which Data knew. He tells Riker his attention was caught by Julianna doing complicated math equations on the spot. He then saw that her blinking was the same pattern as Data's own, a formula that made their blinking seem random. The final piece was Data hearing Julianna rehearse for a musical performance then replicate the piece in perfect note and pitch, which was humanly impossible.

* Many a German spy was outed in World War II for failing to comprehend the mind-numbingly complicated British Imperial monetary system. Until 1971, the complex coinage, nonsensical divisions of currency ([[OldMoney 240 pennies to a pound, quarters of pennies, etc.]]), and the numerous slang terms for the various denominations meant that merely counting change was extremely difficult for foreigners.

* In chapter 42 of ''Manga/InsideMari'' Isao delivers the WhamLine "Let's lie down here together again sometime" when describing what [[spoiler:Mari had told Yori in the nurse's room.]] The problem is Yori never mentioned that [[spoiler:Mari said that to her]]. It's one of the most concrete signs that [[spoiler:this isn't really a [[GrandTheftMe bodyswap manga]].]]



* Mary from ''Theatre/TheChildrensHour' has convinced her grandmother that her two teachers are having a [[MistakenForGay lesbian]] [[MistakenForCheating affair]]. Her grandmother is an influential person and within days all the students have been taken away by their parents. When Karen and Martha confront Mary's grandmother about her MaliciousSlander they ask Mary to explain. Mary keeps to her lie however she says she saw the two doing things when she looked through the keyhole to Martha's door. The problem is, as Martha angrily points out, her door ''doesn't have a keyhole''. Mary then switches her lie to having heard noises from Karen's room, however Karen's room is too far for anyone to have heard anything. When she can't figure out a new excuse Mary says she heard the rumor from a classmate, who heard it when the door was open. Mary {{blackmail}}s Rosalie to get her to agree with the lie. Everyone believes the kids [[spoiler:including Karen's fiance]].

* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'': Sasuke recognizes a Naruto impostor because he doesn't have a cut on his cheek. (Naruto received it before they entered the Forest of Death.)
