* NotSoStoic: In ''[[Literature/MurderOnTheOrientExpress]]'', Poirot is loudly contemptuous of the conspirators' claim that they were [[VigilanteMan justified in murdering a killer who escaped conviction]], but when one of them claims that God is on their side, he is ''furious''.

* TheTapeKnewYouWouldSayThat: Happens, somewhat amusingly, ''several'' times in Poirot's VoiceoverLetter to Hastings in ''Curtain.'' -->'''Poirot's Letter:''' [[spoiler: For you see, Hastings... YOU killed her.]] -->'''Hastings:''' [[spoiler: *I* killed her?!]] -->'''Poirot's Letter:''' [[spoiler: Oui, mon ami, you did.]]

* VoiceoverLetter: In ''Curtain'', [[spoiler:Hastings reads a four-month-old letter from Poirot, which tells him the whole story about Norton and his mind games, in Poirot's voiceover. Combined with DeadPersonConversation, as Hastings, a FourthWallObserver, asks a few questions about how or why as if he were talking to the ghost of Poirot, before the letter tells him in Poirot's voice to be quiet before continuing. Even funnier is that when the letter says that Hastings [[MurderByMistake accidentally killed Barbara Franklin]], Hastings is shocked and says, "I... killed her?", and the letter replies, "Oui, Captain Hastings."]]

Added "Plot-Based Voice Cancellation".
Added DiffLines:
* PlotBasedVoiceCancellation: In ''The Big Four'', while Poirot is narrowing down the suspects until he gets closer to the true culprit, he gets a phone call from the mystery caller, whose voice we don't hear often, before heading for one apartment.[[spoiler:.. and into a DeathTrap in which he survives while [[FakingTheDead faking his own death]].]] After the confrontation [[spoiler:with the mystery man, who is revealed to be Albert Whalley]], while Poirot explains to his friends the whole story toward the end of the episode, we get a flashback to the same scene when he answers the same phone call, [[spoiler:and this time, we hear Albert's voice telling Poirot to come into his apartment for a supposed interview, in the hope of luring Poirot into the DeathTrap... a trap that Poirot is clever enough to discover just in time to escape.]]
