* On the FX show ''Series/{{Terriers}}'', Hank, an ex-cop, and low-level P.I. Frames The Guilty Party (FramingTheGuiltyParty) in a murder and then tips off his ex-partner Gustafson (who's still a cop and was investigating the crime) about new evidence so he can arrest (and convict) the killer. Gustafson gets great notices for solving the murder, only for something else to unexpectedly go wrong, putting him, Hank, and the whole case in jeopardy. Noty wanting to get himself involved, Gustafson tells Hank he has twenty four hours to fix it (YouHave48Hours). If Hank can't, not only would he be investigated for (and charged with) planting evidence, he'll ruin his friend's career too, for being linked to a frame-up.

* Author LenDeighton's NoNameGiven spy once remarks to someone that he's well known to be a loose cannon who the boss can barely keep under control. He mentions that this is his boss's protection, and the government's protection, as they can disown him if needed. Everyone's happy with this, he gets to do what he has to to get the job done and they can pretend to be [[Film/{{Casablanca}} Shocked, Shocked!]], if he gets in trouble.

* In ''BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' Season 5, this ends up being the case between Buffy and the Watcher's Council. Buffy points out that she needs them to identify Glory but they need her or they're just a bunch of old guys in tweed waiting for her (well, actually, they're waiting for Faith) to die because without a Slayer they have no purpose. So the Council hires back Giles (and after his prompting, gives him all the pay he would have gotten since he got fired to that moment) and in return they tell her who Glory is (a hellgod).
