* ''Series/FatherTed'': While playing himself, RichardWilson is portrayed as reacting violently whenever someone repeats his catchphrase as [[Series/OneFootInTheGrave Victor Meldrew]] to him. The actor himself admits that this (much like anyone else haunted by a well-known catchphrase) is something that spills over to real life.

* {{Bones}}: Dr. Brennan has two HUGE ones: People who use physical violence to intimidate and coerce people (usually manifests with mob bosses, gang leaders, and drug kingpins), and serial killers. Both will trigger physical violence, and she WILL win that fight. This has led to her beating up a gang leader and breaking the arm of a perverted serial killer who had the audacity to touch her during an interrogation.

* ''TheYoungOnes'': ''Do not'' mention ''Series/TheGoodLife'' within Vyvyan Basterd's earshot. It's an equally bad idea to remind him that [[GenderBlenderName he has a girl's name.]] Also, Neil may be an ExtremeDoormat 90% of the time, but ''don't'' mock his flares.

* ''WhiteCollar'': Neal, who's generally a pretty mild mannered person, gets ''mad'' if you damage a piece of art. Even more so if you accuse him of doing that same thing.

Added DiffLines:

** Ramsay doesn't like when people resist or challenge him, as evident when Theon initially refuses to accept his new name. And he ''really'' doesn't like when people point out that he's a bastard, even after he is legitimized.

* ''Series/NYPDBlue'': Andy Sipowicz is a veteran of TheVietnamWar (as is Dennis Franz). He doesn't talk about his experience much, but when a fellow officer lied about serving in the war, Sipowicz went off on him.

Added DiffLines:

** Series/PowerRangersDinoThunder: Tommy is a [[BadassTeacher teacher]]; mess with his students at your own risk. Doesn't matter that they can take care of themselves; PapaWolf Tommy will make you regret threatening them.


Added DiffLines:

** Franchise-wise button: do ''not'' threaten the people of wherever the Rangers in question are protecting, especially their close friends and family or kids. And ''especially'' don't manipulate kids by toying with their emotions.

** In the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mpn1anVPZsc Mattress Sketch]], it's important that if you go a certain furniture store, you must never say the word "mattress" to Mr. Lambert, instead, you must say you want to see the "dog kennels"[[note]]yes, Pets department, second floor[[/note]], because if you do say "mattress", he'll promptly stand up and put a paper bag over his head and respond to nothing, and the only way to snap him out of it is to stand in a tea chest and sing Elgar's "Jerusalem" a capella. It's nothing he can help you understand, but apart from that, he's perfectly all right.
