** Although, as shown in another episode, he can be extremely obsessive about the beanies. When the power in the apartment building goes out during summer and Carly and Spencer have the only air conditioning machine in the building, the Beanie guy hijacks the machine to keep his Beanie Babies at "optimal temperature".

* There was an entire story arc dedicated to somewhat shallow Jeremy from ''{{Zits}}'' obsessing over a large mole he never noticed on the back of his girlfriend Sara's neck. It gets to him so much he begins to start seeing her as a mole herself. Eventually, he confesses to Sara and "forgives her" for her imperfection.

* One episode of ''Series/TheFreshPrinceOfBelAir'' had a similar scenario to the ''FullHouse'' example above- Will convinces Hillary to date his professor as part of a plan to keep him from flunking the class, but she decides to break up with him due to the size of his Adam's Apple. Will confronted her on this, pointing out that she was still recovering from Trevor's death and just looking for excuses to not date. She got over that, but then started fixating on his mole (or perhaps the mole was first), leading to a great [[IncrediblyLamePun line]]:

* In DrakeAndJosh, Drake dumps his girlfriends over an annoying laugh and [[NoGuyWantsAnAmazon toughness]]. The laugh probably wouldn't have been so bad if she didn't laugh at ''[[MostAnnoyingSound every single little thing]],'' which is closer to Drake's actual grievance.

* Done several times on ''{{Glee}}'' to facilitate the endless DatingDoSiDo-ing, but the most egregious example is arguably Jesse St. James [[FaceHeelTurn going suddenly evil again]] and breaking up with Rachel by ''egging'' her because...she secretly cast Puck and Finn as well as Jesse as her "boyfriend" in her SoBadItsGood video for "Run Joey Run." The video itself was PlayedForLaughs, and yet he took it extremely seriously.
* In one episode of That70sShow, Eric & Hyde compete over the affections of a girl. Hyde ultimately wins, but dumps her because she likes the Little River Band (and Eric is disgusted by that as well).
* In an episode of ''Belle'' had it to where the main character was dating a nice guy who was wealthy and successful but then found out he was an Atheist (without showing the usual HollywoodAtheist quirks and even enjoyed going to Church with her as he enjoyed the music) and dumped him. However the episode even acts as if this was a big deal, even flat out stating he is worse than a killer and a drug dealer because "they can be saved and he can't" and that dumping him was the right decision. The episode summary even referred to this as a flaw. As you can guess [[http://www.patheos.com/blogs/friendlyatheist/2013/02/25/on-black-sitcom-atheist-character-is-undateable/ Atheists were not amused]].
