** Harry gives an ''epic'' one in ''Skin Game'', where he [[spoiler: hammers Deirdre's death at her father's hands into Nicodemus over and over again until he snaps and orders Harry be killed, something that breaks his word of cooperation and allows Harry to fight back. It actually works *too* well, as it reveals to Nicodemus that only someone with a child of his own could be so effective at such a tactic. ]]

* In the ''Literature/HomecomingSaga'', Hushidh, a [[TheEmpath "raveler"]] manages to verbally destroy the standing of Rashgallavik, the commander of the army occupying Basillica. She can do this because he was merely standing in for the recently slain Gaballufix, the army's true leader[[note]]Though he took over for the disgraced and exiled Volemak[[/note]], so their loyalty to him was tenuous at best. Her guardian and mentor Raza immediately tells her [[NiceJobBreakingItHero how badly she just screwed up]].

* [[ArrogantKungFuGuy Chang Wufei]] delivers a long attempt in ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamWingEndlessWaltz'', trying to convince [[TheStoic Heero]] that their attempts to bring peace were pointless, as war is simply an ingrained part of human nature. Heero's response is part WorldOfCardboardSpeech ("Believe in the era we live in!") and part ContemplateOurNavels ("How many more people must we kill? How many more times must I kill that girl and her dog?").

* [[ArrogantKungFuGuy Chang Wufei]] delivers a long attempt in ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamWingEndlessWaltz'', trying to convince [[TheStoic Heero]] that their attempts to bring peace by discarding weapons and soldiers were pointless, as war is simply an ingrained part of human nature. Heero's response is part WorldOfCardboardSpeech ("Believe in the era we live in!") and part ContemplateOurNavels ("How many more people must we kill? How many more times must I kill that girl and her dog?"). In the end, Heero got through to Wufei because his speech made Wufei realize that starting another war will only lead to more tragedies, like [[HeWhoFightsMonsters the destruction of his own home colony]].

--> '''Brian:''' "Connie, I think I have a theory about why you're such a bitch. You see, Connie, you're popular because you developed early and started putting out when you were 12, but now, you can't stand to look at yourself in the mirror because all you see is a whore. So you pick on Meg to avoid the inevitable realization that once your body is used up by age 19, you're gonna be a worn-out, chalky skin, burlap sack that even your stepdad won't want. How's that? Am I in the ball park?"
