* A two-part episode of the 2010 ''Series/TheDefenders'' played this for drama.

** In one incident, a young man wanted to store some windshield cleaning fluid in his Jeep. However, the large jug that the fluid came in would take up too much space in the back seat. So, the man decided to pour some of the fluid into a blue Gatorade bottle. Unfortunately, one of his friends came back from playing basketball and took a few swigs of the cleaner thinking it was actually Gatorade. Luckily, the man was rushed to hospital before he died of wood alcohol poisoning, and suffered no lasting effects.

He never said anything (though one officer suspected something), but sent the aide on a SuicideMission, his wife dying of a broken heart sometime later. After that, he never went to church if the TropeNamer for the UriahGambit was the subject of the sermon.
