** Also, the Vulcan motto is"Infinite diversity in Infinite Combinations", just so long as you think and behave exactly according to the rules that one man wrote thousands of years ago, and don't pollute our gene pool with any half-breed children.

* ''Series/MarriedWithChildre'': Okay, here's one very few fans caught onto. Miss. DeGroot, the mean librarian who hated Al (even when he was a child) allowed him to take out ''one'' book, simply to prove he'd never return it; he forgot to, and she worked at the library over thirty years to prove it, somehow cheating death from old age, despite a rather unhealthy lifestyle where she drank coffee with half a container of sugar per cup. When Al finally confronts her (and she offers to waive the fine of $2,000 as a type of CruelMercy) she tells him how satisfying it is he grew up to be the loser she envisioned - this from a woman who has lived alone all her life, unmarried, working as a school librarian for three decades over a petty obsession over a ten-year-old student who irked her. She calls ''Al'' a loser? She's a "never even tried" loser.

** The Doctor criticises others for changing history. This matter does depend on the Doctor, but the 10th Doctor made numerous alterations to history, such as bringing down a Prime Minister who would have brought about Britain's Golden Age because of something he didn't like them doing. Later stories show he apparently made things worse. 11 also made alterations to history, but seems to have been more subtle about it.

** Over the course of the revival, the Doctor has to call Rose Tyler, River Song, and Clara Oswald out in turn for [[spoiler: trying to save the life of a deceased loved one]] as doing so violates a fixed point in time and threatens the survival of the universe. In the Series 9 finale "Hell Bent", '''he''' attempts to do the exact same thing in the wake of [[spoiler: Clara's death]], demonstrating the top level of this trope. In his defense, he has been DrivenToMadness by a TraumaCongaLine that would break just about anybody and accepts LaserGuidedKarma for his actions once he has his HeelRealization, admitting he broke his own rules.

The Doctor's grief-driven hypocrisy in the finale is intentionally placed in contrast to earlier in the season, in "Before the Flood", when the Doctor has to physically restrain a man from preventing the already-seen death of the woman he loved, giving the exact same rationale that the Doctor himself later ignores when faced with the same scenario.

** Garak spends a lot of time complaining about Bashir's Federation smugness, and a similar amount of time extolling the cultural superiority of Cardassia.
