  • Exaggerated: After Bob destroys an entire house and yard with a bulldozer, he denies doing it, while he's still in the bulldozer.
  • Downplayed: Bob denies burning the crates despite smelling like burnt wood. Alice sarcastically asks if he's trying on a new gasoline-and-wood-smoke-scented cologne.

    • Bob claims responsibility for any crime he hears about, even if there is no evidence.
  • Subverted: Bob says that he did do it...
  • Double Subverted: When responded to with shock, Bob says he has no idea what they're talking about, either because he does these kinds of things all the time or for some other reason.
  • Parodied:
    • A group of special forces operators is hand-picked by The Government to have as many ties to their mission as possible, so that if anything goes wrong, the government can have Implausible Deniability.
