* ''VisualNovel/KatawaShoujo'': Hisao finds himself struggling with this a bit when he comes to Yamaku Academy, a school for the physically disabled, often wondering whether it's polite or not to even mention another person's disability. For their part, most of the characters at the school are perfectly comfortable with themselves and think Hisao is worrying overmuch. Lilly in particular seems to find it funny when people try to avoid words like "see" in her presence (she's blind).

** Played with in another episode. Brian is staying with Quagmire, who goes on and on about how his girlfriend with a gimpy leg is visiting, and repeatedly tells Brian not to mention it. It's basically one painfully obvious set up for this joke. Then Quagmire leaves and Stewie shows up. After a minute of conversation between Brian and Stewie, the girl shows up and it's Stewie who says "Oh my God, what happened to your leg?" The girl runs out crying, and Quagmire follows her shouting "Dammit, Brian!"

After Picard realizes what he's said, Creator/JonathanFrakes as Riker does one of his trademark grins, but the look on Creator/PatrickStewart's face is ''classic''. I can't really describe it; [[https://youtu.be/T41gqFO9zb0 you have to see it for yourself.]] He '' makes a D: face''.

** For example, when Jerry is dating a woman with a very large nose, nobody says anything about it until Kramer walks in and comments on it nonchalantly.

* ''Series/{{Frasier}}'' plays with this spectacularly in the episode "Roz and the Schnoz." Roz is pregnant, and Frasier plays host to the birth father's parents, who, unknown to anyone (including themselves), have extremely large noses. It doesn't help matters that they keep unwittingly setting up nose-related {{pun}}s: "We have a couple of giant schnauzers." [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G7clRrOCsEA&feature=player_embedded Just go watch it.]]

* In the live-action adaptation of ''Film/OneHundredAndOneDalmatians'', [[ThosetwoGuys Jasper and Horace]] are meeting with the skinner who has a large animal attack scar on his neck and can't speak. Jasper tries to emphasize to Horace not to comment [[TheVoiceless Mr. Skinner's]] huge scar on his throat. First words out of his mouth when Skinner opens the door?

--> '''Roy''': Don't call her that!\\
'''Moss''': Why?\\

** Then Data [[DiggingYourselfDeeper tries to help]] by pointing out it was a simple pronunciation transposition error- "Barc":"Brac"- and for once realizes [[ShuttingUpNow it wasn't helping at all]] and that it might be a good time to find a control panel to be unusually interesting.
