[[DoNotAdjustYourSet Greetings, tropers]]. It may shock you to know that I Have Your Index. How I came to obtain it is not important at this particular point in time. All that is important is that I'm willing to give it back...[[HostageForMacguffin for a price]]. If you want your precious index back, I request... [[ComicallySmallDemand the sum of forty three dollars and seventy cents]].

....

I appreciate your cooperation. Here is your index, safe and sound.

Contrast IndexToTheRescue.
