* In ''Literature/CharlieAndTheChocolateFactory'', the mothers of the four brats each fall into panicky screaming as one by one their offspring meet various absurd fates in the factory, though both Violet and Mike's dads are similarly upset. (In the case of Veruca's parents, Mr. Salt is deliberately presented as ''ridiculously'' calm about her potential fate compared to his wife.) Two mothers are usually DemotedToExtra and/or AdaptedOut in adaptations, and the remaning moms sometimes get more rounded personalities in the bargain (Mrs. Beauregarde becomes an icy StageMom in the 2005 film and averts this trope, and Mrs. Teavee's anxious StepfordSmiler nature in the 2013 musical stems partially from her having to deal with an EnfanteTerrible son). Still, Mrs. Gloop always comes off as this when her son goes up the pipe, owing perhaps to their limited stage/screen time (they're the first tour group to be eliminated) superseding in-depth character development, and Mrs. Teavee is definitely this in the 1971 film.

* In ''Film/TheFugitive'', as the US Marshals conduct a raid on a home looking for an escaped prisoner, his girlfriend begins shrieking and screaming. She stops briefly when he's shot, then starts up again almost immediately, leaving the unsympathetic, fed-up Gerard to point his gun at her and snap at her to "Shut up"

Compare TheOphelia which is about genuine insanity. Often prone to InelegantBlubbering. May involve [[GetAHoldOfYourselfMan Get a Hold of Yourself, Woman!]] to correct. Compare ScreamingWoman and AllPeriodsArePMS (for when the character's reaction is dismissed as hormones acting up). For situations when those hormones were thought to have supernatural implications, see MenstrualMenace. Contrast WomenAreWiser (where women are depicted as ''more'' rational and emotionally stable than men) and EmotionlessGirl.

** There's also the fact that her level in badass involves [[spoiler:having the Jägermonsters as effectively her private army]]. You're going to become FAR less hysterical when you realise that they [[spoiler:work for you because they actually WANT you to succeed]].

* In ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'', [[MentorMascot Kyubey]] explains that the reason that his species [[DealWithTheDevil make contracts]] with girls, and specifically ''teenage'' girls, is because they're the most emotional kind of human. [[spoiler:Specifically, they have the most dramatic reversals between hope and despair, which provides the emotional energy that Kyubey is collecting]].
