* In ''[[Film/Ghostbusters1984 Ghostbusters]]'', when Egon suggests crossing the streams on their proton packs to take out [[AttackOfThe50FootWhatever the enormous Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man]], something he previously said would vaporize them, he suggested there was "[[MillionToOneChance a very slim chance]]" they would survive. Peter immediately likes the odds.

Sometimes comedy will use this for somebody who doesn't really care how poor the odds are and will just go ahead with it anyway despite being told how terrible their chances are. Alternatively they may not be listening, or they'd actually prefer the failure.

* ''WesternAnimation/JonnyQuest'' episode "Monster in the Monastery". After Jonny and Hadji tell Dr. Quest and Race that there are nine enemies left in the monastery, Race says to Dr. Quest "That makes the odds about right, sir". Two men, two kids and the Raj Guru (who's basically a non-combatant) against 9 armed men, and the odds are "just about right"?
** Sure, [[{{Badass}} Race]] takes out eight of the guys while Benton and the boys take the last one. Or they would have if [[spoiler: the yeti hadn't beat them to it]].
