* ''Series/DukesOfHazzard'': Hazzard County's Boss Hogg may be so crooked he makes Al Capone look honest, but he draws the line at actions that might actually physically harm someone and refuses to work with anyone who supports that sort of thing. (One episode that dealt with marijuana had Boss Hogg vehemently declare that he would never sell drugs for any type of money.) His would-be partners don't take kindly to such an attitude, and Boss Hogg often needs the Dukes to pull his bacon out of the fire when this happens.\\

Ironic, in that Boss Hogg started his criminal career moonshining with Uncle Jesse (who eventually went straight). But drugs are bad, m'kay? There was one episode where Boss Hogg had no problem with trying to sell off a large truck of firearms (which included a Browning Machine Gun) that he stumbled across, perhaps making this character trait an example of DependingOnTheWriter. It could also have been [[EarlyInstallmentWeirdness earlier in the show's run]], when Boss was a more malevolent character than he later became.

* ''Series/{{Colony}}'': For all that [[TheQuisling Proxy Snyder]] is corrupt and willing to torture people for information, he's the only Bloc governor who's attempting to actively improve the lot of the residents of his bloc, not just rule over them.

** The episode "Evacuation", where, even in school gym where the neighborhood is staying (because Hal's couch accidentally tipped over a train carrying radioactive waste), Malcolm is still grounded, despite not being at home. When Malcolm has had enough and sarcastically asks Lois if she's going to spank him, she puts Malcolm over her knee and... [[FelonyMisdemeanor lightly taps him on the butt.]] EVERYONE IN THE GYM reacts with silent shock as if it's the worst thing ever and Lois is banished outside along with Hal, Reese and Dewey, [[EarnYourHappyEnding while Malcolm finally gets peace (meaning for once, Malcolm actually wins).]] Though Reese was banished for setting up a black market, Hal for causing the problem, and Dewey and been telling people his family was dead to get sympathy (and toys).

* ''Series/{{Bones}}'': Temperance was counting on this when she was stuck inside a prison while visiting when a prison riot breaks out; she was counting on the unwritten prisoner code of ethics that harming a pregnant woman is heavily frowned upon. She walks right through the thick of it; the few rioters that do attempt to make a run at her are quickly consumed again into the riot by other rioters who take notice.

** Angela is fine running simulations where the victim gets stabbed, shot, or even beheaded, but she draws the line at making her computer people ''vomit''. That's just gross.

** Mayor Wilkins says that he married his wife in '03 and that he was with her to the end, which was "not a pretty picture." He suggests that the immortal Angel and the mortal Buffy will have the same problem. Wilkins gets in Angel's face, saying that he's selfish for keeping Buffy from the life she should have. "Is that what you came back from hell for? Is that your greater purpose?" Receiving a blank stare for an answer, Wilkins disgustedly turns his back on him. And the episode "Gingerbread" has him genuinely horrified at the child murders, though it's also entirely possible he was just doing what the townspeople expected of him. The fact he looks worried when the dark forces of the town are brought up only muddies things further. The Mayor does love kids, so he probably doesn't like seeing them get killed if he's not the one eating them himself. He's also a big believer in keeping his word and doesn't like when he is made to look dishonest. In fact, the only time we see say or do anything that might be considered threatening to his henchmen is when Mr Trick says he did him a favor by accidentally getting Lurconis, the demon the Mayor had pledged a sacrifice too, killed by the gang. He tells him that he should be very careful what favors he does for him in the future.

* On ''Series/TheDailyShowWithTrevorNoah'', Trevor points out that when Ted Cruz made derogatory remarks about "New York values", even [[http://www.cc.com/video-clips/gfm69z/the-daily-show-with-trevor-noah-breaking-down-the-republican-and-democratic-debates Donald Trump]] took offense and used a 9/11 barb to force Cruz to applaud for him.

** When two hitmen try to kill Omar on a Sunday while he's in the middle of taking his grandmother to church, the Baltimore underworld reacts in uproar. Business is business, but Sundays are sacred.
