Added DiffLines:

* On ''WesternAnimation/{{Daria}},'' the title character, known for being [[TheStoic extremely stoic]], specifically says that she doesn't like to smile without a reason. In "It Happened One Nut," she gets a job at a nut kiosk where she has to smile for every customer or they get their food free. We see her give a one-second smile for several patrons, though apparently she missed a few off-screen, because the boss mentions that she's a model employee ''except'' for losing $15 on her first day.

1) Character A will demand something from Character B. Character B refuses to oblige their request until Character A says "please". Character A begrudgingly does so, and only then does Character B perform the requested action. This is commonly seen between parent and child, though it can occur between adults (typically for comic effect).

2) Character A will want something from Character B. Character B refuses to give it to Character A until they give them a little smile to show their appreciation. Typically, Character A will put on a very forced smile.
