* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c8YKAp7o53E entire]] "Exploring Your Masculinity" tape recording scene from ''Film/InAndOut''. The tape the main character buys in order to re-affirm his heterosexuality somehow knows that the main character is not doing what it asks him to do, knows he has fallen in a trap and, after the song it puts ends, it knows he has been dancing.

It's implied he really just imagined this, though, since at the end it asks how he did.

** In the episode where Peter attends Meg's high school while pretending to be a student, he leaves a taped message to fool his wife, and though it works with the first two recorded lines, the third one is inappropriate and tips Lois off that it is a recording. The recording eventually asks to her, if she hasn't figured out it's a recording, to [[ImplausibleDeniability please flip it over to side 2.]]
** A Mexican guy knows only two very specific phrases in English (with a perfect accent) which lets him hold a small conversation with Brian.
--->'''Brian:''' Oh good, you speak English!\\
'''Mexican Guy:''' No, just that sentence and this one explaining it.\\
'''Brian:''' You're kidding, right?\\
'''Mexican Guy:''' Que?
** "Coming up, an expose on [[CoincidentalBroadcast conveniently-placed news items on TV shows]]. But first, Peter, look out for that skateboard." (Peter then slips on a skateboard.)

* In ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'' Urahara gives Ichigo a message that splatters onto his bedroom wall that tells the message as it flows down the wall. Ichigo proceeds to comment that it's " LIKE SOME TV CRIME SCENE MESSAGE WRITTEN IN THE VICTIM'S OWN BLOOD!" Then the message continues with a P.S.
-->'''Urahara voiceover of the message:''' P.S. If you think this is some "written in the victims own blood" cliche from some t.v. show, then you obviously have no sense of humor.
