* In the Season 2 ''WesternAnimation/DonkeyKongCountry'' Episode, "Hunka Hunka Burnin' Bluster", King K. Rool has a fake one written out to DK from Candy as an attempt to strip him of his motivation in protecting the Crystal Coconut. When received, Diddy even explains this trope to DK, who doesn't take it well, but Diddy manages to cheer him up almost instantly by proposing the idea of calling Candy out on it.

If I read one more Real L Ife section with a single example that says "VERY much Truth In Television. In Finland ...", I'm gonna snap.
[[folder:RealLife]] * VERY much TruthInTelevision. In Finland, conscripts are actually ''encouraged'' to break up with their girlfriends before entering the service in order to avoid unnecessary "Dear John" letters. [[/folder]] ----

*** One of the instances in the series has a soldier patient getting a Dear John letter written in a callous tone with a demand for her old photo back. The staff decide to help the soldier by gathering various photos of women with an insulting letter to telling her to pick out which one is hers and the soldier caps it off with the suggestion of sending the whole parcel "postage due."

* ''Film/TheGoodyeGirl'' opens with Paula coming home to the apartment she shares with Tony and finding out that, instead of them moving together to California as they'd planned, he is breaking up with her and has left to Europe to film a Creator/BernardoBertolucci movie. What he fails to mention is that he's sublet their apartment to a man she doesn't know, fellow actor Elliot, which kicks off the plot as Paula and Elliot wind up rooming together.
