* Used in ''MissCongeniality''. Since the person using it is an FBI agent, you'd think he'd be ''slightly'' more inventive.

* ''{{Bottom}}'': Richie wishes Eddie to join him in the pub toilets to purchase condoms. Eddie doesn't immediately follow along. So Richie's brilliant idea for alerting him is to shout "Edward Hitler, will you please join me in the lavatory ''this instant''!" - in front of everyone in the pub. Naturally, this has got everyone's attention, so Richie's brilliant excuse to explain his eagerness to see Eddie in the toilets? "We're toilet inspectors."

* Documentarian Hallis Saper uses the more-specific variant in ''[[XWingSeries Starfighters of Adumar]]'' to get the four New Republic pilots out of a bugged room onto a balcony she knows isn't bugged. For the benefit of the listening devices, she uses the excuse of having seen someone tampering with the X-wings on that balcony.

* Used on the ''SaturdayNightLive'' recurring skit "Coffee Talk." The lead, a heavily stylized Jewish lady would get choked up and stall for time by saying, "Talk amongst yourselves. Here, I'll give you a topic--<word/phrase/location whose name betrays its purpose/use/meaning>; discuss!"

Added DiffLines:

** In one episode, Frasier gets Martin out of the way by telling him he wants to show him how to set up the closed captioning on his TV. Sounds like a lame excuse to leave, but it's a CallBack to Roz telling him that she was listening to the television while they were having sex.
