If the parents return to their nest and do not hear the password, they'll know that the nest has likely been taken over by [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brood_parasite brood parasites]] and will abandon the nest.

* In the non-fiction ''Don't Tell Mum I Work On the Oil Rigs, She Thinks I'm A Piano Player In A Whorehouse'' the author Paul Carter is sent to work in Nigeria. He's given a sentence which the driver picking him up at the airport ''must'' give before he gets in the cab to avoid a NotMyDriver trope ending in robbery and murder. The sentence is somewhat garbled in translation, but close enough.

**Sam and Dean Winchester have a series of passwords and routines established for if they get separated, captured or arrested. The phrase "Funky Town" means the brother who says it is being held at gun point. "Poughkeepsie" means drop everything and run. A note addressed to "Hilt" and signed "Steve McQueen" means the brother who sent it will create a distraction while the brother who received it makes an escape.
**When Dean travels back in time, he has to convince his mother, Mary, that he is her son sent from the future. He convinces her by telling her that she always sang "Hey Jude" to him as a kid because it was her favorite song.

* ''Fanfic/TheBridge'': Gigan is unsure if the being he's talking to is Monster X or [[SuperPoweredEvilSide Kaizer Ghidorah]] and asks him to tell him two things only his best friend would know. X proves himself by talking about how the two of them stopped the [[NoodleIncident radio incident with the Kilaaks]] and what Gigan did the moment they first met. Also the fact that X calls Gigan his best friend while Kaizer would never do that as he hates everyone.

* ''ComicBook/MortadeloYFilemon'': They have an [[SparseListOfRules arbitrarily catalogued]] amount of them. A RunningGag is said password be very offensive to some group or collective that happens to be within earshot. [[HilarityEnsues A beating ensues]].
** One particularly extreme password was reciting DonQuixote ''in its entirety''. After unsuccessfully trying to convince the guard on the other side of the door to skip the password for once, Filemón just starts reciting aloud the whole book, [[PhotographicMemory which he proves to know by heart]]. Time passes, it rains, Filemón grows a beard, and right before he's done reciting the book, the door collapses. When Mortadelo and Filemón enter the building while shaving their beards, they notice the guard has died of old age.
