* This seems to be the main skill that they are looking for on ''Series/TheApprentice''. DonaldTrump is most likely to send home the Project Manager of the losing team, so [=PMs=] will find someone else to blame for the loss.

It's your fault, my fault, his fault. All that bullshit. Finally, someone comes up with the idea, wait a minute, while we were planning this {{caper}}, all we did was sit around and tell fucking jokes. Got the message?"

* In the first {{Film/ToyStory}} movie, Woody and Buzz pull this when their EscalatingWar gets them stranded at a gas station. It loses track a little by the end:
---> '''Woody:''' ''It's all your fault!''
---> '''Buzz:''' ''*defensively*'' ''My'' fault? If you hadn't pushed me out of the window in the first place...
---> '''Woody:''' ''*fumes indignant*'' Well, if ''you'' hadn't shown up with your stupid little cardboard spaceship and taken away everything that was important to me...
---> '''Buzz:''' Don't talk to me about importance! [[ItMakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext Because of you, the future of this entire universe is in jeopardy!]]
