->'''Dad:''' I guess so.

->'''Dad:''' Hmm. I guess so.



Typically, the writers will then try to reduce the [[SickeninglySweet saccharine]] by adding a [[HilarityEnsues joke]], such as having Junior say, "Dad, how do I get the baked beans out of my pants?" to [[LaughTrack gales of laughter]] [[EverybodyLaughsEnding from both sides of the Fourth Wall]].

A staple of the American family-oriented SitCom, the GoldenMoment usually occurs in the last few minutes of the episode, when AnAesop is delivered. After 20+ minutes of hijinks and confusion, Dad sits down with Junior for the following exchange:

* Parodied in ''TheTick''. The titular superhero would often end the episode by declaring "I think we've all learned something today!" and then [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} deliver an aesop that made no sense whatsoever]].

* Parodied on AquaTeenHungerForce when Meatwad watches the other characters in a "sitcom with a sci-fi/horror twist" on an apparently cursed television. It comes complete with sitcom-style "Awwwww" from the audience, followed by a lame joke with laugh track. Meatwad appears to be the ideal television watcher, though, declaring "I identify with that!"

* In ''ThaliasMusings'', [[{{CloudcuckoolandersMinder}} Apollo]] attempts to invoke this trope after Thalia has a narrow brush with [[{{GodSaveUsFromTheQueen}} Hera's]] wrath. Thalia can't take it seriously and doubts he does, either.

* Pick an episode, any episode of ''FullHouse''.

* ''Series.TheFactsOfLife'' owned this trope, playing it so straight they frequently didn't even bother with the lighten-up gag. Or if they did, it came through brave tears.
* Lampshaded in ''Series/ArrestedDevelopment'': Michael and George Michael, his son, are making snacks and discussing their plot of that episode. George Michael remarks that he doesn't need his dad to stay out of his life, he's the biggest part of his life. Michael states, refering to the snack they are making, "That's a little cornball, son."
* Vengeful aversion: [[{{Seinfeld}} No hugging, no learning.]]
* ''FamilyMatters'' had this quite frequently, complete with FullHouseMusic.
* ''HappyDays'' has an episode in season one where, after going through gang initiation which involved pulling pranks on a policeman, stealing their principal's toupe, and going to a sockhop in dresses, Potsie and Richie realize that Mr. Cunningham was right--they didn't even like the guys they were trying to impress and should have just been themselves all along. Mr. C then comes in and has a little chat with Richie which ends on a corny joke.

* Averted in the very first episode of ''TheCosbyShow'', when Cliff is trying to get to the bottom of Theo's terrible grades and Theo makes a heartfelt plea for understanding, pointing out that while Cliff and Claire are, respectively, a doctor and a lawyer, Theo doesn't love them more or less because of that, and maybe his parents should accept the fact that Theo is just 'a regular person' and love him anyway. As the studio audience begins to 'awww...' Cliff reacts silently for a second, then yells, "That's the dumbest thing I ever heard!" and proceeds to tear Theo a new one for not even trying.
