The famous one liner used by Chris Hansen in his interviews of potential sexual predators as seen on Dateline NBC's 'To Catch a Predator'.
Upon walking into the room in which the potential predator and the decoy (the latter of which may not be in the room at the time) meet, Chris usually starts off with asking the potential predator something that has to do with what the potential predator and the decoy were just discussing, and then asks the potential predator to "take a seat".

The phrase 'take a seat' and 'have a seat' are often interchanged.
Decoy: "I made you some cookies but I got chocolate on my shirt, I gotta go change it really fast but I left them on the table for you."
(about 10-15 seconds pass)
Chris Hansen: "So no cookies for you then? Why don't you go ahead and take a seat on that stool there for me please".
