* ''TheRockfordFiles'' featured many stakeouts over it's run, but the most unconventional was when the stakeout was completely unrelated to the case the main character was investigating. He simply happens to run into his FriendOnTheForce disguised as a food vendor. At the end of the episode, he saves himself from the criminals chasing him by leading them through said stakeout.

->''"It's like basketball: you can run zone defense or man-to-man. Man-to-man is risky; follow someone too long and they're going to get suspicious. Zone is usually the way to go. Stay put and let targets come to you. Less obvious, easier on the feet... and you can catch up on your celebrity gossip."''

* Battlecat and Minx (Battlecat's daughter) had a lot of rooftop stake-outs in the ''GlobalGuardiansPBEMUniverse''. They'd inevitably descend into discussions about whatever guy she was seeing that week and how Battlecat doesn't think he's good enough for her.

* Mulder and Scully and other FBI agents on ''Series/{{The X-Files}}'' sometimes were on a stake-out duty. The examples include "Squeeze" when the FBI do stakeouts of the murder sites where a serial killer might re-appear, and then Mulder orders a stake-out of Tooms's building. In its sequel "Tooms", Mulder follows the eponymous mutant serial killer; the episode has a very sweet bonding scene between the agents in their car. "Eve" had Mulder keeping an eye on one of the girls, as they were expecting her abduction.
