* The EddieMurphy / Martin Lawrence prison film ''Film/{{Life}}''. The Warden's daughter gives birth to a ChocolateBaby, so he lines up all of his inmates and demands to know who the father is. When the inmates eventually all step forward and claim paternity, it has the added bonus of implying that the Warden's daughter has been [[ReallyGetsAround rather busy]]. Not only does no one get punished, but the Warden is never seen again in the movie, presumably resigning out of shame.

* Eric, son of Kirk, Douglas tried his hand at stand up. It did not go particularly well, and he was being heckled rather nastily. Finally he snapped and shouted at the heckler "You can't heckle me! I am Kirk Douglas' son!". The heckler got to his feet, and shouted back "No! I am Kirk Douglas' son!" Pretty soon the whole audience is on its feet joining in.

[[spoiler:It turns out that Hugh is, in fact, innocent, but due to his circumstances, would have been willing to take the fall for Juniper]].
