Eventually he manages to accuse her of being an "Indian giver" without actually using the word, and their relationship dissolves.



* In ''Series/TheWestWing'' episode "The Midterms", Doctor Jenna Jacobs, a conservative radio talkshow host, is publicly humiliated by the President of the United States (he draws her into clarifying that she [[MDEnvy is not an MD]], but rather has a [[NotThatKindOfDoctor PhD in English]], and then after she defends her stance that Homosexuality is a sin by quoting the [[Literature/TheBible Book of Leviticus]], asks her a serious of rapid-fire questions about whether he could sell his daughter into slavery, have his chief of staff executed for working on the Sabbath Day, etc. [[AsTheGoodBookSays all while citing different verses of Leviticus]] (President Bartlett being [[BadassBookworm a very well-studied Catholic]]), before finally pointing out what drew his wrath upon her.

* It doesn't stop with individual politicians or countries, the frikkin' ''[[UsefulNotes/UnitedNations U.N.]]'' accidentally [[http://stream.aljazeera.com/story/un-misfires-tweet-one-state-solution-0022421 tweeted a support for 1-state solution]] ahead of the General Assembly's vote on [[UsefulNotes/ArabIsraeliConflict Palestine]]. (For the record, the vote turned out to be 138 countries in favor of implicit recognition of Palestine, and the "1-state" thing was a typo.)
* When Australian stand up comedian Fiona O'Loughlin met the queen with a few other residents of Alice Springs, she noticed that her husband went to shake Her Majesty's hand. Without looking to whom she was talking to, asked the person standing next to her "Did he just fuck up?" A voice replied "Not as much as you just did dear". She turned around to find that she just addressed the Duke of Edinburgh (although, given his track record of this sort of thing, this may count as praise from Caesar).

* Pretty much every character in ''Series/{{Daredevil 2015}}'' has said or done something after forgetting that Matt is blind. The real estate agent tells him that he and Foggy can fight over the office with the better view. Karen holds a newspaper up to him to show an article about how terrible Wilson Fisk is. Ben Urich shrugs instead of verbally answering. Matt isn't too bothered by it and seems to prefer the odd faux pas to people treating him like he's made of glass.

* U.S. Vice President Joe Biden on a campaign rally to Missouri politician Chuck Graham: "Chuck, stand up, let the people see you!" Then he realized that Graham is in a wheelchair.
** Then he changed it to "God love ya. You've got them standing up for you now, pal."
** Biden's good at these. Such as calling the healthcare reform bill [[PrecisionFStrike "a big fucking deal"]] right next to a live microphone.
** [[YouAreACreditToYourRace "Clean and articulate."]]
** His comments about being "unable to go to a 7-Eleven or Dunkin' Donuts without a slight Indian accent".

* [[FragileFlower Latvia]] of ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'', despite being [[ShrinkingViolet shy]] and [[NervousWreck nervous]], lacks tact and has a tendency to just blurt out whatever's on his mind, no matter how insensitive or insulting it may be, especially in front of his former boss [[PsychopathicManchild Russia]]...and [[AndCallHimGeorge he often has to face the consequences for it]].
-->'''Latvia''': Ah...Mr. Russia, those traditional clothes suit you well. You're rediscovering styles from the past, right?
-->'''Russia''': Latvia, these clothes are popular at my house right now.
-->'''Latvia''': Those fossils are popular?

* In TheFilmOfTheBook of the first novel in the Literature/EarthsChildren series, ''[[http://jabootu.net/?p=556 Clan Of The Cave Bear]]'', lead character Ayla must, within sight of her tribe, save a child from a wolf using her advanced hunting skills, skills which it is not lawful for a woman in her society to have.
** The book has the same situation but with a hyena instead. ''Clan of the Cave Bear'' is practically one long sequence of these, although the results are generally not all that funny.
* ''Film/{{Ladyhawke}}'' - Proud at escaping an inescapable prison, Phillipe offers to buy a drink to everyone in a tavern. Some of them are out looking for him.

* ''Ridicule'' by Patrice Leconte depicts the fearsome consequences of social blunders at the court of Louis XVI. People were DrivenToSuicide for saying the wrong thing at the wrong moment, or at the very least their hopes for advancement at court were ruined.
* Jason around Kelly in ''Film/MysteryTeam''. He explains to the (orphaned) girl that life isn't fair because he didn't get a bike for Christmas, tells her to have fun at her parents' wake, and says her skin feels similar to what a dolphin's must feel like.
** The whole [[TitleDrop Mystery Team]] is like this. For example, their most common suspect is Old Man [=McGinty=], whom they suspect for murder when he is clearly very comatose. They break into his house. Twice.



* ''Film/PacificRim'': When Newt is introducing himself and his work, he shows off his {{kaiju}} tattoos and goes on about how cool kaiju are. In front of Raleigh. Who ''lost his brother to one''.
-->'''Newt''': You know [Yamarashi] was one of the biggest Category [=3s=] ever? It's 2,500 tons of awesome. (''awkward silence from everyone else'') Or awful, you know, whatever you wanna call it.
