Non-verbal example In the very first Animorphs book. Jake and Marco go to the zoo to acquire animal morphs but are spotted by security. They see two doors to go through, and the first one brings them face-to-face with a rhino. So, they choose the second door, which leads to a lush jungle. Jake turns around to talk to Marco, only to notice that Marco, normally a tan Hispanic guy, is very pale, and deduces that whatever animal inhabits the place is Right Behind Him.

In The Thin Blue Line episode "Fly on the Wall", the precinct is being filmed for a documentary on what usually happens at police stations.
Inspector Fowler isn't keen on this at all, and thinking that he isn't being recorded, expresses to his officers what he really feels about the crew being there, not realizing in the middle of his rambling they've come up behind him, despite subtle hints from his fellow officers.

Subverted in Veronica Mars: The title character is asked about the hated Celeste Kane, and sarcastically describes her as a paragon of humanity. Meanwhile Kane has appeared right behind her. Mark asks Richard if they were in the law firm's unisex bathroom having the same conversation, what would happen? Richard hangs a lampshade by saying he would turn around and Cindy would be standing there.
Mark says, "Flush flush. This happens damn near Once an Episode in Ally , usually in the unisex. One time, Ally and Georgia think Billy is in one of the stalls, so they start loudly proclaiming what a great lover he is. Billy walks up behind them in the middle of it, having just entered the room. Turns out it was John Cage in the stall. Tony is usually the one who gets snuck up on, but it has happened to almost everyone in the main cast at least once — this trope, along with the Dope Slap that follows most of the time, is one of the show's most prominent Running Gags.
Once an Episode may be pushing it, but there are still too many examples to list; here are a few: In the episode, "Stakeout", Abby has the "He's right behind me, isn't he? Gibbs is not, in fact, behind her Eventually they lampshade it with a Christmas episode: What do you get the guy who has nothing and wants nothing? The creepy way Gibbs used to sneak up on us. What do you mean "used to"?
The old man's been wearing Bengay. I can smell him a mile away. Kate grins, then gets an Oh, Crap! Is that a fact, DiNozzo?
From the same episode, Kate and Abby know Tony is there and make their conversation sound as suggestive and focused on his wildest dreams as humanly possible, only to reveal they're talking about Kate's new dog.
Also from that episode and several others , Gibbs uses it exactly as he's meant to when a suspect flees into the woods. The man pauses to snicker about what "idiots" Gibbs and company are, only to freeze in terror at the sound and feel of Gibbs' gun at the back of his head. Also lampshaded in "Dead Reckoning" when Gibbs doesn't show up for work on time he's at a crime scene with Trent Kort and Ziva checks his schedule on his computer while McGee and Tony keep lookout.
During a citywide blackout in the season 7 episode "Power Down", Tony starts joking about how Gibbs will feel perfectly comfortable during the crisis: You don't need electricity to use hand tools and drink Bourbon. He's standing right behind you, isn't he? In one episode, Abby gets so fed up with Gibbs' stealth that she placed bubble wrap on the floor at the entrance to her laboratory so that the noise would alert her when someone enters.
Gibbs did not like her idea, so he soon ordered her to get rid of it. Even guest characters know about this: You enjoy working for Gibbs? I mean, I heard he's tough, a real hardass. The guy's scary enough when he's properly medicated. Can't imagine what he'd be like with caffeine withdrawal. Can only imagine someone taking away King Kong's bananas. In "Trojan Horse", we get quite possibly the most epic example of this, when he pulls this even though he's not even in the room —Abby and McGee are in her lab and turn towards the door in obvious anticipation of this, with McGee commenting that "Gibbs has been off his game since he took over for the Director".
Cue Gibbs asking, "Is that so, McGee? This trend is finally explained in a Season 13 episode when McGee and DiNozzo are standing in a corner, discussing Bishop's marriage, assuming she can't hear them because they're too far away, only for her to reveal that she can, because their voices are reverberating off of the skylight.
Is that how Gibbs is always able to—-" right on cue, Gibbs appears out of nowhere Gibbs: In "Phoenix", Ducky takes the lead on the case and ends up pulling this several times.
After Gibbs has done it at least once, of course. He walks around with that peacock strut, and that smirk. How long were you standing back there?

Well, maybe I'm just not wise, but I think Jennifer — or should I say Zathrak the Undead, is a stuck-up, manipulative, cold-blooded It was actually done on multiple occasions one of the earliest examples was in "The Beard". With the latter, he has no reason to believe that he's behind him other than he's talking about him as Shawn paid a surprise visit and doesn't even live in the same city.
Used hilariously in Black Books , when Bernard thinks they've seen the last of the thuggish gangster he and Manny are meant to be teaching how to read for an upcoming book reading.

It was a bit of a variation, though, in that the bystander typically just smirked and enjoyed the show, rather than trying to warn him of the person behind him.
This happens to poor Kermit twice in a row on the episode with Jaye P. Morgan, who already seems pissed having to work with them, the day his mean landlord with a homophonic similar name shows up to make an inspection: Hey, Kermit, I think you should know that my uncle J. Gross, the man who owns the theater, is making another inspection. I don't think I can take it! Of all the people I can't stand to have around here when we're doing a show, J.
Scooter backs away slowly as Morgan comes down the stairs behind Kermit I mean, J. Oh, hi Jaye P. Uh, when I said J. No, frankly I don't. Camera pans to show J. Gross behind him, clearly not amused. No, see, I love having you on the show, but J.
Gross, the man who owns this theater, is the meanest, stingiest, most heartless person I know! I hope you mean that as a compliment, frog.
Happens on The Golden Girls as Rose is poking fun at Dorothy, making specific mention of how she'd have to "stand on a chair to tell it all to her face.

In an episode of Hogan's Heroes , Col. Burkhalter then cancels Klink's leave with the dry comment, "I really am a nasty old tub of lard.
The title character uses this on occasion to indirectly tell someone something nobody wants him to tell them. In the season 7 premiere, he initiates an argument with Cuddy regarding his interest in having a boy donate a piece of his lung to his sister knowing fully that he'll overhear it and offer to give up his lung. How I Met Your Mother: Barney parodies this trope on one occasion. Oh, god, you're pregnant!
Oh, god, you already had the baby! It's behind me, isn't it?! Why don't you both bite me. In one early episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer , Xander reads the paper while complaining about Buffy's obsession with Angel, giving the expected "who cares about that vampire freak" line. Angel is right behind him, and Xander turns, completely unflinching, to Angel, and says hey. A similar subversion in the second episode of Fawlty Towers , when Sybill is complaining about O'Reilly the builder: He's shoddy, he doesn't care, he's a liar, he's incompetent, he's lazy, he's nothing but a half-witted, thick Irish joke!
Oh, hello, O'Reilly, we were just talking about you. And then we started talking about this other Irish builder we used to know. God, he was awful No, Mr O'Reilly, I was talking about you. The West Wing enjoys this trope and variations thereof. Ainsely compliments her and then Leo says: Well, She'll be happy to hear that. She's standing right outside the door. Power Rangers Dino Thunder has this in the first episode. Connor blows off class to practice soccer, and brushes off his goalie's concerns about the scary new principal Green Ranger Xander, a rather proud fellow, has this when Daggeron, mentor Udonna's old friend, becomes the rangers' teacher.
Xander interprets him as a difficult taskmaster, and he rants to the other rangers: Guys, you have to agree. Daggeron's got to go. Daggeron approaches And I know what it is. He's singled me out 'cause of my good looks. He's probably just jealous 'cause he can't get a date of his own. The other rangers start warning him He's overbearing.
He's standing right behind me. White Rhino Ranger Dominic is trying to convince a genetic engineer with trust issues whom he has a crush on to tell him about her latest formula, which had been stolen by Camille.
When he catches the other rangers spying on him, and Blue Ranger Theo asks why he's the only one who can do it, the geneticist comes up behind him just as he starts saying that it was because she liked him, boasting about how she was putty in his hands. He realizes it, and that's the end of any hope of trust between them.

You're not even gonna try to— Lou: Impossible episode "The Train", a dying prime minister does not realize that his designated successor means to become a tyrant. Our heroes take the prime minister, his successor and the successor's aide on a simulated train ride , and simulate a crash.
The successor and his aide are informed that the prime minister had burned to death, and the successor takes the oath of office and orders his aide to start the Reign of Terror. That's when our heroes strike the set and Oh, Crap! The successor is ordered to resign. The Middleman , obviously, puts its own spin on it. I'm using you for kindling. I have a few friends standing behind you who might disagree.
That might have worked in , but today's woman is a little more savvy You created vampire puppet minions and they're all standing behind me, aren't they? A hilarious example in the first episode of Titus: What a surprise, Tsubasa is really nice towards kids!
That's different from the image he gives off. If you gossip about him he'll appear Played straight, for laughs, in an episode of Space: Above and Beyond , where the Wildcards discuss what they'll all do after the war is over, and speculate on their squadron commander, who has been a Marine since birth. Can you imagine if he was anything else? McQueen Okay, listen up. This one's in the kitchen.
I'm here to fix your faucet, so check your six. I'm gonna replace the strainer part, and I'm gonna replace the washer. It's gonna be a real knife fight. Now I'm gonna utilize a monkey wrench and perhaps even a plunger.
And when I'm done, you'll have water. It'll be hot, and it'll be cold. And one more thing. Wang flips table Wang: It's okay to be scared. It's the greatest form of flattery. Well, tell him I'm not in! Frank Burns has to be the biggest horse's patoot on this post.

Potter in his office, she is pacing anxiously. Oh, where is that old coot! River Song on Doctor Who is prone to finding herself the butt of this trope: In "Forest of the Dead", she gives Anita a passionate speech about how awesome the Doctor is or rather, is going to be , only to realise that he has overheard the whole thing.
In "Flesh and Stone": If he's dead back there, I'll never forgive myself. And if he's alive, I'll never forgive him. And Doctor, you're standing Right Behind Me , aren't you? Turns around to see the Doctor grinning smugly at her I hate you. Perhaps the most awkward one comes in "The Husbands of River Song", where River goes off on a rant about how the Doctor has never loved her and how she doesn't care. She knows the Doctor is standing behind her — but she doesn't know it is him.
When she finally recognises him, she is mortified. When you love the Doctor, it's like loving the stars themselves! You don't expect a sunset to admire you back! And if I happen to find myself in danger, let me tell you, the Doctor is not stupid enough or sentimental enough, and he is certainly not in love enough to find himself standing in it with me! Oh, you are so doing those roots. The roots of the sunset? I'll have to check with "the stars themselves. Oh, just shut up!
And for a non-River, non-played-for-laughs example, in her creator's first story , the Doctor orders a being with the mind of a child to "go to your room! I sent it to it's room. This is it's room. The Closer likes this, though without the actual line. Played with in a later episode, Brenda storms into the room, ranting and demanding that the rest of the team tell her where Flynn and Provenza are; in the middle of the rant, they walk in behind her, and the others clue her in by motioning for her to turn around since they can't get a word in edgewise.
Played with as the people who are Right Behind Me are the ones in for the embarrassment. Supernatural happens a few times. In "Hammer of the Gods" when Sam is trying to free some people from a freezer, he looks at Dean and stops.
Dean questions that someone's behind him, and two gods take them away. In the episode "The Third Man" when they're praying for Castiel to turn up. As it turns out, he's invisible to everyone in the room. Later Cass turns up to save them from some demons sent by Crowley, and the boys apologise for doubting him. Castiel pretends to be hurt that they didn't just ask about their suspicions but says he'll forgive them, making a joke that inadvertently reveals he was listening in on their earlier conversation.
Unspoken but implemented when in Sam's mind, Crowley is urging Sam to cast out Gadreel. Lieutenant Ash delivers a defused bomb to Dr Gillespie and his daughter Susan, who are building a Heath Robinson contraption in their backyard for steaming explosives out of unexploded German bombs.
Ash later reports to his superiors on the phone, deriding the device as completely impractical and describing Gillespie as the proverbial Mad Scientist who even has a Mad Scientist's Beautiful Daughter — said daughter has just entered the room behind him. In one episode of Sherlock , John takes his date, Sarah, to a Chinese circus that Sherlock recommended, only to become furious when Sherlock invites himself along to continue investigating a case.

I don't like parties When John is being chewed out again by Reggie and Linda for not immediately telling them about Craig two-timing them and being married. In the future, I don't want to know anything. If either of you have any secrets I don't want to know. If either of you think they have something that I might like to know, I don't want to know.
In fact, if anything happens to anybody anyplace, anytime, please don't tell me 'cause as I may have mentioned, I don't want to know! You know whose fault this is, you know when you come right down to it, it's Margaret that big-mouth busybody, you know she just You know, she's really brave when she's pushing other people around but when it's her turn to tell you guys something where the hell is she? Now that I would have liked to have known. In another episode this is subverted Margaret starts saying things about Becker while he's sitting behind her.
He starts to say something, but without even turning around she says she knows he's behind her. One of the policeman is doing an impersonation of humorless Sergeant Blaketon just as he enters the room. Fortunately the imitation is of him saying "Never believe a word that Claude Greengrass says". Needless to say Blaketon approves this sensible policy. In Castle , Ryan and Castle are talking about a suspect, who apparently had special relationships with many women in a hospital but wasn't sleeping with any of them.
No, makes no sense. Beckett walks up Why spend all that time listening to women and buying them things if you're not gonna try and sleep with them? An episode of California Dreams has Tiffany talking about Matt's breakup to Jenny without realizing Matt is standing behind her despite Jenny's subtle hints.

Trying to warn Al, Griff said her yes, that Gary is a woman name. Not understanding, Al told Griff not to fear the boss and ranted until he saw her. Al Please, don't fire me. The person being insulted usually taps the person's shoulder, and he answers by telling him "Hold on" without even turning around. At least, not turning around until the third time, at which point he realizes the mistake. As soon as Hamm stepped away, a frightened Buble promptly revealed that Hamm was in fact holding him prisoner and forcing him into the endeavor, begging viewers to call the police, then whispering, "I have a feeling he's standing Right Behind Me " which he was, in fact.
A variation from an episode of Blackadder the Third: Blackadder has finally had enough of the Prince's stupidity and leaves with a parting insult for Baldrick. After he walks out Baldrick mutters "Goodbye, you pasty-faced, big-nosed, rubber-necked bastard. What really sells this is the Studio Audience ; they laugh a bit at Baldrick's insult, then absolutely bust up laughing as Baldrick looks up. Lampshaded in Home and Away. Liam talks about how he's having trouble adjusting to coming home to "a crazy Dolly Parton wannabe".
After seeing Bianca's reaction, he asks if Irene is behind him. On Hangin' with Mr. Cooper , Tyler frustratedly insults a bully who was picking on him and Nicole, to Nicole. Fortunately, they got bailed out fairly quickly afterwards.
In Dirk Gently , Dirk explains to Macduff the fractured relationship he has with his cleaner. It's like a horror movie for OCD sufferers, with Elaina as the vampric witch of the piece. But she's got a heart of gold really. Salt of the earth. This exchange in the episode "The Bittersweet Science". Is Hotch dating anyone? You know, statistically, widowed men start dating much faster than females, but Hotch is refuting the data.
It's been two years and 19 days. Venus has aligned with Mars, which means love is in the air and maybe we will have weekends off.
Is he standing there? He's standing there, isn't he? Someone talk about the case. Garcia even lampshades this a second time when she first meets Alex Blake Garcia: You must be Penelope. Mad Men - The night after a party at the Drapers', Harry is talking to Stan about what he'd do to Megan - who walks up behind him as he gets more I would've just stood up and grabbed her little French behind and pushed her through those cheap-post-four-walls.
God , what I would do to her Go to your meeting. I told you, I'm making them wait. No, you're making them mad. No, I am making them anxious. I think Isaac specifically is mad. No, Isaac's on my team. Isaac has a highly developed sense of right and wrong, and he is hip to my battle plan. Dan, he's standing right behind you. Casey and I were just talking about your highly developed sense of right and wrong, and I was just saying Go sit your sorry ass down in that meeting.
On my way, sir. On an episode of ROY , Roy is doing an impersonation of the headmaster, unaware that the head has just stepped out the classroom behind him. He finally notices his friend's frantic stop gestures and finishes with "He's behind me, isn't he?
The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. Phil yells at Will for revealing his humble beginnings to a newspaper, unaware that his increasingly hurt and angry mother is standing behind him until she finally blasts him for being ashamed of his upbringing.
And a typical one in another episode when Phil is boasting about how he stands up to Vivian if and when she tries bossing him around, only to look downright terrified when she sharply speaks up. To make matters worse, this is the second time in the episode that this has happened.
