* In ''Series/LawAndOrderSpecialVictimsUnit'', Amanda has a gambling problem and racks up a sizable debt with a local casino. When she's identified as a cop, a couple of guys take her to the back room and check her for a wire. They, and their boss, immediately assume she's a dirty cop and start blackmailing her in order to do things for them that only a cop can do. Throughout all this, she has to deal with an overbearing Irishman named Declan, who appears to be the casino owner's NumberTwo and her chief enforcer. At one point, she fails in a task and they threaten to expose her. In desperation, she offers herself to Declan, who sends his underling out of the room and turns on a camera, before seemingly pushing her down to his crotch level. At the end, he shows everyone the recording, where he actually stops short and tells her (without an Irish accent) that he's Lieutenant Declan Murphy of NYPD Vice. He doesn't care that she's a dirty cop, but he's willing to overlook it, if she helps him nail the casino owners. He uses the recording to get all the charges dropped from Amanda. For a while, he even becomes the head of SVU, although he still spends most of his time undercover. [[spoiler:He and Amanda have a fling, resulting in a pregnancy. She doesn't tell him until later and decides to raise the baby alone]].

* Hilariously subverted in the fourth season of ''Series/TheWire''. Prez, formerly a cop [[spoiler: until he accidentally shot another cop]], becomes a school teacher, but Bubbles (formerly a police informant) sees him at the school, and not knowing Prez is no longer police, assumes Prez is setting himself up for this, and promises not to spill the beans. Prez, of course, has no idea what Bubbles is talking about.

* ''Literature/TrickyBusiness'', a rare non-humor book by DaveBarry (although it does have its moments), is about an illegal casino ship that is also a base for drug dealers, things go wrong, etc. On of the POV characters is a pretty young lady who works as a cocktail waitress, hates her job, and her mother always tells her to quit because it's so dangerous... Makes perfect sense, until the very last part of the book when it's revealed that "cocktail waitress" was just a disguise: she is actually a badass undercover cop, and now everything suddenly sounds a lot smarter.
