* In ''TheCommish'', one episode's [[TheTeaser teaser]] featured a gentleman who had ordered a prostitute dressed for a cop, waiting to meet her in a hotel lobby.

* An episode of ''{{Series/Seinfeld}}'' featured the stripper and real cop getting their wires crossed -- the bachelorette party gets an actual officer showing up expecting a robbery, while the actual robbery has the "cop" show up and start taking his clothes off.
