--->"Hello, sick people and their loved ones! In the interest of saving time and avoiding a lot of boring chitchat later, I'm Doctor Gregory House; you can call me "Greg." I'm one of three doctors staffing this clinic this morning. This ray of sunshine is Doctor Lisa Cuddy. Doctor Cuddy runs this whole hospital, so unfortunately she's much too busy to deal with you. I am a '''board''' ...certified diagnostician with a double specialty in infectious disease and nephrology. I am also the only doctor currently employed at this clinic who is forced to be here against his will. But not to worry, because for most of you, this job could be done by a monkey with a bottle of Motrin. Speaking of which, if you're particularly annoying, you may see me reach for this: this is Vicodin. It's mine. You can't have any. No, I do not have a pain management problem, I have a '''pain''' problem. But who knows? Maybe I'm wrong. Maybe I'm too stoned to tell. So, who wants me? And who would rather wait for one of the other two guys?"

* ''Series/WolfHall''
** In the first half of the series, before he becomes Henry's right hand, Cromwell method of getting the attention of the highborn nobles he meets is to skirt the edge of suicidal insolence, then presenting them with the solution they require before they chop his head off (or do perhaps worse, in the case of [[CutHisHeartOutWithASpoon Norfolk's threats]].)
** Henry, in full screaming rage, publicly accuses Cromwell of treasonously attempting to turn him into a PuppetKing and is probably inches from ordering his execution. Cromwell crosses his wrists in front of his face, calmly says "God go with you," and walks away. Henry is visibly baffled by the gesture and, at their next meeting, is rather abashed to have lost his temper like that.

* ''Series/TheThickOfIt'' : probably happened a few times, but one crowning example was the episode where they arranged a big announcement about a new policy only for the policy to get the shaft while everyone was already on their way. So they ended up literally making a "there is no big announcement" announcement criticizing the press for only paying attention when there was a big announcement. It worked perfectly: not a single line about it was written. Then to ice the cake, the PM changed his mind on the policy and the press officers had to call the press "in case they hadn't noticed" what the announcement had been about.

* ''FatherTed'' has the episode "Kicking Bishop Brennan up the Arse". Due to a bet Father Ted has to do exactly that, and eventually Dougal suggests this plan: Kick him, then pretend ''nothing happened'', because the bishop would never believe he would dare do it. The bishop spends the next several hours in a state of near catatonic shock before realizing what happened and storming out of the Vatican and back to Craggy Island, at which point Ted still manages to convince him that he must have imagined it until he sees the giant photograph of Ted doing it that he had drunkenly commissioned.
