* Played with in ''Series/TheWestWing''; after an assassination attempt, President Bartlet has been wounded and is being rushed to a nearby civilian hospital. A nurse answers the red alert phone and asks if it's a drill. Although Bartlet's Secret Service bodyguard replies in the negative, it doesn't really register, and the nurse spends a few minutes griping that it's not really a very good time for a drill. Then she sees the unmarked black cars screaming into the emergency bay with sirens blaring and Secret Service agents spilling out, [[OhCrap and it registers]].
