** Charlie's three sons. In spite of being foul-mouthed delinquents, they are academic savants who are also among the few adolescent males in '''any''' medium to consistently say "I love you Dad." [[spoiler: And they even help him propose to Irene, too. [[CrowningMomentOfFunny "Will you marry me, bitch?!"]].]] Plus they don't take kindly to someone threatening their dad. Just ask the chicken cop.

* WouldHurtAChild: Not Charlie, as the scream of a child sends him running the other way. Hank on the other hand tried to drown one in a fountain.
-->'''Hank:''' The name's Hank fuck-face.

''Me, Myself, and Irene'' is a 2000 film starring JimCarrey as Rhode Island state trooper Charlie Baileygates. Immediately after he marries his sweetheart Layla she begins having an affair with the driver of their wedding limo (We did say 'immediately') when she learns that he is an accomplished academic who is only driving a limo as a research project. The affair continues for years, even producing children which Charlie accepts as his own, until Layla ultimately leaves Charlie.

** Even Charlie's reaction to the woman tricking him in the supermarket seems to be this, at least as far as she's concerned, as she is genuinely clueless as to why he starts behaving so aggressively with her, and even goes so far as to embarrass her over the store intercom....in the presence of her children to boot! As far as she's concerned, he is being extremely rude to her and completely overreacting, but since this is the final insult that has caused Charlie to reach his [[RageBreakingPoint Rage Breaking Point]], his "overreacting" is actually quite understandable.

** Subverted. This is the trope that jumpstarts the whole plot, as the limo driver, Chanté, assumes that when Charlie asks him if he accepts checks for payment (since he's low on cash,) it is some kind of racial attack. And when he falsely accuses him when complaining to Layla, she [[WhatanIdiot automatically takes the limo driver's side and angrily yells at Charlie, refusing to give him the benefit of the doubt, despite knowing him better than that]], and clearly [[CassandraTruth refusing to believe him when he denies being racist]]. Then to add further insult to injury (specifically, the injury caused by Chanté' hitting Charlie with his nunchucks,) [[KickTheDog she ultimately BETRAYS Charlie by later having an affair with Chanté]].
