* Reversed in Genesis' "No Son of Mine". The song tells the story of a boy who runs away from home, and after some consideration attempts to return, only to be berated by his jerkass abusive father. [[note]]Phil Collins has said in interviews that the lyrics are deliberately vague as to whether the narrator or his mother is the victim of the abuse.[[/note]]

* Despite the idea of God being a perfect being who knows how humanity should act, the Bible is full of people calling the old man out. Typically God will get angry, smite some people or send a calamity to punish them, and some human will demand to know just ''what'' the hell he thinks he's doing. Typically he responded by admitting he might have overreacted just a bit.

** This is chiefly due to the disappointingly small range of dialogue options that would allow you to truly Call The Old Man Out. You're never able to mention that his leaving created too much turmoil and danger for you to remain in Vault 101 as he intended and the option that comes closest requires you to have performed one of the game's more evil acts [[spoiler:(blowing up Megaton]], which allows your father to maintain the moral high ground. Similarly, you're unable to explain to Doctor Li why you left the Vault against James' wishes, except with a childish "I do what I want" kind of answer.

-->'''Lotus''': Teshin thinks he knows better. Maybe he does? Maybe you needed to know to survive the Queens. But you are changed now.

* At the beginning of the mission "Reuniting the Family" in "VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoV", Jimmy goes on a rant saying he's tired of Michael's shortcomings and refusal to acknowledge them, wrapping it up by saying that he misses him. Interestingly, Michael doesn't argue with him.
