** One example of this haste: A 1985 episode of ''DiffrentStrokes'' where Arnold covers for a friend who had broken into Mr. Drummond's liquor cabinet and snuck a few drinks of alcohol, getting drunk as a result; Drummond jumps to the conclusion that Arnold is guilty and when he can't explain, Drummond permanently grounds him. Of course, Drummond relents and Arnold backs off.

** The side story to the episode "Crash and Burn" revolved around a teenage boy who tried to kill his parents by tampering with the fireplace in their bedroom so it will fill up with carbon monoxide and kill them while they sleep. Why? Because they refused to pet for the college he wanted to go to.

* ''Series/{{Daredevil 2015}}''; [[ComicBook/TheKingpin Wilson Fisk]] is on a date with a woman he likes when one of his "business associates" interrupts. Fisk takes the woman home and apologizes for the fiasco, then goes and beats the man senseless before [[OffWithHisHead taking his head off with a car door]] for embarrassing him. Fisk follows this up by targeting all his gang's operations and blowing them all up, killing everyone who worked for him and his brother, and having the police he controls hunt and kill anyone who was still alive. Fisk had problems getting the Russians to be loyal, but this attack all came back to the dinner.
** Fisk continues to do this at several points in the series, but its apparent he got this trait from his father. When Fisk was young and his father's political ambitions failed, Fisk was beaten up by a bully for vandalizing his vote signs and dismissed him as a loser. Fisk Sr responded by savagely beating the kid with a baseball bat, but not for beating up his son (which at least would make this understandable), but for the insults he directed at him (which he was just repeating from his own father), before then ''bullying Wilson into continuing the beat down on the boy while he was defenseless''. [[spoiler: Later, when his wife finally calls him out on his increasingly volatile behaviour, he responds by beating her senseless with his belt while Wilson watched, until Wilson finally snapped and killed him to defend her.]] Its not a surprise Wilson grew up to become the way he did.
