Who, Where, Why? Cut for being a Zero Context Example
I think in John M. Ford's "How Much For Just The Planet?" this was lampshaded by Klingon Lt. Aperokai (aka "Proke"), who had gotten genre savvy about the shenanigans the Direidi had been pulling on his crew and the Enterprise's crew too.
Once he and Uhura make it back to the hotel with the intent on getting to the bottom of them, they gets escorted to where Estervy and a few bakers are planning something big. Once Uhura and he figure it out, Estervy asks Proke "Do you know what this means?"
"I'm afraid I do," he says, "We know too much."
The voice of Flyter adds, "Couldn't have said it better myself."
Cue Uhura and Proke getting stunned with phasers to prevent the "surprise" from being ruined too soon.
