* In the film ''SomethingNew'', Kenya and Brian embark on a double date with Kenya's friend and her fiance. When the ladies excuse themselves to go dancing, the other guy tells Brian that while he likes him and he seems to be an "okay guy", he thinks of Kenya as a sister and even if not, she's his girlfriend's best friend, so Brian had better not be using Kenya as some "science experiment" (Brian is white and Kenya is black).

** When Phoebe is about to get married, Joey tries to do this routine with her fiancee ([[FailedAttemptAtDrama and, of course, goes completely over the top]] with his [[InvokedTrope invoked]] OverprotectiveDad-type performance), until the increasingly confused husband-to-be gives the standard "if I did anything to hurt her, I'd take revenge on ''myself''" response.

For her part Josie is upset that, probably not for the first time, Leliana went behind her back to protect her.

The one true manly way to concede defeat for the girl's heart is to tell the winner that, if he ever screws up, he should expect an ass-kicking of epic proportions. Usually uttered by (or sometimes to) TheLancer or TheRival.

The manly and gracious thing for the winner to do is to accept this statement. "I would be disappointed if you didn't." This is ''not'' (usually) an insult or a threat, but an agreement between guys who both want the same girl to be happy.

* Batman does this to Superman of all people at the end of in the {{DCAU}}'s 'World's Finest' movie. Bruce Wayne has spent much of the film dating Lois Lane, who calls it off after finding out his secret. Right before he leaves Bruce tells Clark "She's all yours now, if you can handle that. But you'd better be good to her, 'cause I know where you live." The look on Clark/Superman's face is priceless.
