** In the very first ChristmasEpisode, Marge is penning a letter to be included in the family's Christmas cards. Talking about the kids, she writes, "Maggie is walking by herself, Lisa got straight [=As=], and Bart... we love Bart."
** A similar thing happens in the episode "One fish, two fish, blowfish, blue fish". When Homer goes see his children sleeping for (what he thinks is) the last time, he tells Maggie to "stay as sweet as you are", tells Lisa "I know you'll make me proud" and after hesitating a moment he tells Bart "I like your sheets".
** [[RuleOfThree With Bart again]], after realizing how much she's changed by trying to impress the women at a posh club, she decides she doesn't like how she's turning out and that she likes Homer's in-your-face humanity, she likes the way Lisa always speaks her mind and she likes Bart's... {{Beat}} "...I like Bart!"
** In "The Itchy and Scratchy and Poochie Show", after showing his friends and family the "Poochie" which he's voice acting for, Homer's guests all leave muttering incoherently and Carl says "You should be very proud, Homer... you have a wonderful home."

* ''Secret War: Spies, Codes and Guerillas 1939-1945'' by Creator/MaxHastings contains an inversion: he is generally unimpressed by the wartime spooks, but describes the British secret services as "the least ineffective in the world."

** After Tywin's death, Loras has to give his condolences to Cersei and he painfully struggles to say something nice about her father. He finally calls the deceased lord 'a force to be reckoned with', then pauses for a moment, then rephrases it, then pauses again and finally repeats the original phrase. While the moment is awkward, the departed would find the words highly praising because that's precisely the image Tywin cultivated and relished.

** To be fair, it actually is supposed to end with with "It's animation... with an attitude", but it's only in one of less-viewed trailers and a technical glitch caused it to cut off. A later trailer had the more well-known one simply cuts off at line intact (albeit a trailer with the same footage save for the very end), but the "It's animation".animation..." glitch of the first still stands, and is easily the most well-known thanks to WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic reviewing the film.

** His ''Judging By The Cover'' series discussed this when [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j_Zb_mnEPO4 critiquing the poster]] for ''FantasticFour2015'', along with PolishTheTurd.
-->"I love it when film marketers have to fall back on 'from the studio that brought you'. The usual starting point in the quality-by-AssociationFallacy is 'from the director that brought you', followed by 'from the producer that brought you', which is desperate in itself, and this is the final resort: a small handful of the guys involved in the creation of an unrelated good thing work in the same building as us, and you never know, maybe we caught some talent off the toilet seats."
