* In an episode of ''Series/MarriedWithChildren'', while Al is in the the middle of a [[EscalatingWar prank war]] with his neighbor Jefferson, (who is frequently implied to be [[RetiredBadass a former CIA spy]]) a man comes up to Al and tries to convince him that Jefferson is dangerous and is actually spying on the United States. Furthermore, the man offers Al a large sum of money as a reward for any information on Jefferson. After Al spends most of the episode freaking out about this, Jefferson claims that the whole thing was [[ParanoiaGambit his latest prank on Al]], and the guy is an old friend of Jefferson's. Al is relieved and accepts this, but the episode ends with Jefferson watching a baseball game where the guy who offered Al the money suddenly dies under mysterious circumstances, and all the while Jefferson's expression might as well say [[Manga/DeathNote "Just as planned."]]
