** Allison sees herself saving Noah's daughter from choking at a diner in their first meeting. In Noah's version, he's the one who saved his daughter.


Added DiffLines:

** Cole's POV has him arriving at a meeting with Helen in a nice suit and her acting like a bitch putting him down. In Helen's version, Noah shows up in jeans and leather jacket and he's the one hostile while she's calm and rational.
** When Cole and Allison kiss and have a hook-up, their views are quite different. Allison's version has it slow and romantic and their old feelings back. Cole sees it as excited and rushed and he regretted it as a mistake.

** The third season has Noah being mistreated by a guard in prison and believes the man attacked him. He hunts him down only to find the guy is far nicer in person and makes it clear that much of the actions in prison were all in Noah's mind.

Added DiffLines:

* The drama ''Series/TheAffair'' uses this as the key to the show. Each episode is divided between the viewpoints of Noah and Allison as they embark on a relationship. It's soon clear each tells things in a light that makes them look better.
** Noah sees himself as put upon and a decent guy while others see him as a jerk.
** Allison is far more dowdy in her versions of her story while others see her as glamarous.
** The second season introduces the viewpoints of Noah's wife, Helen, and Allison's husband, Cole, who naturally have ''far'' different views of this "romance" and can paint their cheating spouses in a harsher light.

* An episode of ''StillGame'' features a subplot involving Winston being barred from the Clansman. As Winston recounts the events which led to him being barred, we also see what really happened. Winston makes out he politely asked Boabby to pour another pint, as he felt it was too cloudy, to which Boabby took offence and threw him out. In reality, Winston went ballistic and spat the contents of the glass over Boabby.

** In the memory lapse category, at one point, Ted recalls Barney and Lily are upset with each other (but can't remember why) in the B-Plot after Lily made a comment about Barney's weight and Barney being overly emotional, but they make amends when Lily pulls Barney out of danger... but then remembers that it wasn't Barney that was the victim, Lily was and retells the whole story with their roles reversed, but still can't remember why... he then interrupts the A-Plot to do a third retelling of the B-Plot which reveals that Lily was upset because she was starting to show that she was pregnant and Barney had been teasing her and it wasn't helping that she was very hormonal. And then Ted realizes that, at this point in his A-plot story, Lily couldn't have been pregnant (in series, her pregnancy was a year away) and wondered why the he ever thought the two events went together and decided drop the whole subject.


Added DiffLines:

** In another episode, Garak believes an attempt on his life was not related to his exile because he was exiled for dodging tax payment and the Cardassian equivalent to the IntimidatingRevenueService wouldn't go out of their way to kill him for just that (implying it is a tool in their IRS, but not for his case). At this point, everyone in the room knows that he was exiled for something related to the Obsidian Order.
** WebOriginal/SFDebris noted that Garak coached Sisko to encourage the story of falsified evidence that would draw the Romulans into a war with the Dominion, he advised Sisko to say that at least 10 good Federation officers lost their lives getting said evidence, it was remarkably similar to a line Garak told Sisko earlier in that episode. Garak had told Sisko that he had called in all his contacts on Cardassia and used all the favors owed to him... and the next day every one of them was dead. All we had to go on was the word of Garak, who the viewer already knows, lies like others breathe.
** On another occasion, Worf calls Garak out on his lie of wanting to join Starfleet. Garak responds that he of course had no intention of joining... he was just practicing his ability to lie. It pays to keep in practice.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': The Blu-ray extras of the history of Westeros are narrated by various characters, each with a biased view of the events they describe. For example: Tywin Lannister views his Sack of King's Landing as a just action to end the war and restore order, while Robert Baratheon sees it as a NecessaryEvil, Ned Stark views it as a terrible crime, and Viserys Targaryen calls it an unjust betrayal. All of them have a point.

*** Especially blatant is the apparent scene right after he came in possession of a architecture themed porn movie. Porn is bad so he intended to get rid of it right away. He loses the grip and the VHS just happen to fly out of the case, jump on the remote and land in the VCR which in an equal unfortunate event turned itself on.

*** Especially blatant is the apparent scene right after he came in possession of a architecture themed architecture-themed porn movie. Porn is bad bad, so he intended picks up the box and announces to get the empty room, "I am getting rid of it right away. this vile porn." He loses the his grip on the box of VHS tapes, and the VHS tape just happen happens to fly out of the case, jump box, bounce around the room, and the cover slides off and hits the play button. Ted supposedly just stands there watching in horror, repeating "Oh, no" and collapsing on the remote couch in shock before sitting up and land in the VCR which in an equal unfortunate event turned itself on.leaning forward with a big grin on his face.

** "The Long Goodbye Job" is mostly told in flashbacks after Nate is caught, however ''Nate'' is the one telling what happened. So basically everything he says at every turn is a lie. We get the real version of events as Stirling and the other Interpol agents call Nate's lies out and Nate adjusts the story accordingly.
This list shows the last 10 events of 36. Show all.
