CommissarCap: Commandant Spangler wears one. In one episode Spangler takes away the cadets' TV, to which Francis encourages them to protest by having a hunger strike. After a few days without food, Francis is too weak to remember what they were protesting, negotiating a deal with Spangler to end the strike in exchange for his "magic hat".

Tropes are not recent
** There is something inherently hilarious about Bryan Cranston in briefs. The promoters of ''Series/BreakingBad'' are aware of this (and, yes, he did appear in his underwear -- and lampshaded the previous appearances -- on the recent episode of ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' he hosted).

A chile heel sounds cool but it is not real. Spelling fixed
** After Reese had sabotaged every other contender in a cooking contest that he could have easily won otherwise, Lois and Hal realize that he's going to keep creating trouble since their punishments never teach him a lesson because he doesn't care about ''anything'' they can take away from him (he will sit staring at a blank wall for hours). They then realize that his newfound passion is actually his chiles heel, and decide that the best punishment in this case would be prohibiting him to cook anything for an extended period of time. Reese breaks down and they are overjoyed to ''finally'' find a way to modify his behavior even slightly.
