When a family gets together in a SitCom for a big family dinner, expect [[HilarityEnsues hilarity to ensue]]. Sometimes this is treated as just normal craziness that happens when the family get together.

together. An unfortunate bit of TruthInTelevision, as any advice column published around the holidays can attest to, as relatives who can get along when they keep a respectful (hundred miles or more) distance from one another can end up uncomfortable with one another if they have to be in the same room, especially if the stress of major holidays and the social pressure to present a joyful facade reach a boiling point.

* Fodder for many an AntiChristmasSong. A good example would be Music/TheArrogantWorms [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KCgxJR5dixA "Christmas is Here,"]] where everyone is already tense, but then one member who has been drinking heavily insults his in laws, followed by announcing his wife's affair [[SleepingWithTheBoss with the boss]], causing the wife to start a FoodFight, escalating to knives and shotguns being picked up, and finally the cops arriving to find a massacre.

Added DiffLines:

* The dinner scene in ''Film/SaturdayNightFever''. Unusually for this trope, this is a normal family dinner at the Ramero household, not a special occasion.


Added DiffLines:

* On ''WesternAnimation/RockosModernLife'', Rocko is invited over for dinner at Heffer's house. Awkwardness ensues when he finds out that Heffer was (literally) RaisedByWolves...and that he has no idea that he's adopted. The Wolfe family, meanwhile, are pretty dysfunctional in their own right.
