* ''CampRock'': In this DisneyChannel movie, Tess' almost-instantaneous HeelFaceTurn comes as a result of her mother taking a cell phone call during her performance at Final Jam. To Tess' credit, she owns up to being a bitch despite the fact that the girls she's bullied don't actually show her any sympathy or even bring this up, making the application of this surprisingly somewhat less of a BrokenAesop than the previous examples.
** An earlier scene in the movie showed that Tess' mother had made something of a habit of not making enough time for her daughter. (Tess tries to call her and, though we're not privy to the mother's end of the conversation, it's made clear that she blew Tess off because she was busy with her concert.) The phone call thing at Final Jam was apparently just the latest in a long string of these incidents.

** Gibbs might be displaying this himself--his penchant for redheads might stem from the fact that his mother was one.

** Quinn Fabray was bullied badly before coming to McKinley High, which is elaborated on in "Born this way" as a Freudian Excuse for her cruelty. Of course, every season the writers think up a new freudian excuse for her to be the way she is (most notably in "Ballard", "Preggers", "Born This Way", "I Kissed a Girl" and "Big Brother")

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Series/{{Brookside}}'', the Simpsons go to family therapy after discovering that their (fully blood-related siblings) children are in an incestuous relationship. The therapist ''tries'' to find something from their childhood that would explain it, but the trope is subverted - there really ''isn't'' anything. When the therapist refuses to admit defeat and keeps probing, the father becomes dangerously enraged and smashes up the place, thinking he's being accused of having molested his own children.
