*** Back when Worf was still chief of security on the ''Enterprise'', he tried to commit ritual suicide with a Klingon dagger in his quarters, as he was afraid he was losing his mind and preferred death to dishonor. Luckily, Troi had noticed Worf suddenly leaving the Bridge and followed him to his quarters where she talked him out of it. (Episode s4e17, ''Night Terrors''.)
*** Yet another time on Worf (AGAIN!) has been injured in an accident that leaves him paralyzed, and wants Riker's help in committing ritual suicide as Klingons consider it dishonorable to live crippled. (One wonders whether word of this conversation ever got back to Geordi LaForge, the ships blind chief engineer.) Riker refuses to help, reminding Worf of all of the friends they watched die and how they fought all the way, and that Klingon tradition demands that Worf's son Alexander strike the fatal blow. Worf agrees to try a risky surgery instead. He got better.

** In "Doomed", Spike is about to fling himself onto a stake in Xander's basement when Xander and Willow stop him, leading to some very pithy Whedon dialogue. Specifically, Spike was wearing a shirt he borrowed from Xander, and Xander didn't want Spike to ruin it by dusting himself.

* A classic Creator/EmoPhilips joke: He meets a guy about to jump off a bridge, and tries to talk him down by bringing up how much they have in common. Turns out they both believe in God... and they're both Protestants... and they both go to Fundamentalist Baptist churches... Eventually they get into the nitty-gritty and realize that Emo follows the Northern Conservative Fundamentalist Baptist Great Lakes Region Council of '''1896''', while the other guy follows the Northern Conservative Fundamentalist Baptist Great Lakes Region Council of '''1912'''. And at that point, Emo shouts "Burn in Hell, heretic!" and [[SubvertedTrope shoves the guy off the bridge]].
