* Many a troper has probably been watching a classic movie with friends when an inane debate broke out. Ever witnessed a debate running the length of BackToTheFuture over whether the Flux-Capacitor capacitates flux or fluxes capacitance? The winner? The people who made the physics students who started the trouble watch Film//TheCore.

** TheOtherWiki [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Lamest_edit_wars has these in spades.]] For example: is that city in northern Poland called "Danzig" or "Gdańsk" in English? There's even been wars about ''punctuation''!

* ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible'': In the episode where we learn why Dr. Drakken [[StartOfDarkness became a]] {{mad scientist}}, he is shocked to find out that Kim is the daughter of Dr. Possible, [[spoiler:who he knew in college, and who he currently attempting to take revenge upon]]. When Ron (who is currently Drakken's prisoner) makes fun of him for not making the connection, Drakken defends himself on the basis that "Possible is a very common last name." Drakken ends up leaving the room in order to get a phone book just to back up his argument, causing him to miss the fact that rescuers are breaking into the building.

** Another episode has Ned Flanders say that his denomination of Christianity (The Northwest Branch of American Reform Presbylutheranism) split off from the Catholic Church several centuries ago over the right of worshippers to come to church with wet hair. He then sheepishly admits that his denomination has since abolished that right.

Not this time. No, ''this'' time the argument becomes truly heated. Voices are raised. Curses are spit out. Friends are insulted. Furniture is thrown across the room in fury. [[BloodOnTheDebateFloor Fights break out]]. No one involved is willing to back down until they convince the others that they are right ''right'' ''RIGHT'', ''DAMMIT!!''

* In ''WesternAnimation/Rugrats'', at a costume party, [[ManChild Stu and Drew]] vehemently disagree on whether {{Tarzan}} or KingKong (their respective costumes) is king of the jungle. Stu suggests that they take it outside; Drew appears to agree but then locks Stu out of the house. Not that these brothers need much of a reason to get nasty with each other.
