* In ''ThePhantomTollbooth'', the main character visits Digitopolis, the land of numbers, and tries to find a way to Infinity. After giving up, he encounters half a boy, cut right down the middle (the other half just ''not there''). Turns out he's the .58 child in 2.58 children for the average family -- luckily the average went up a bit, because it was painful being only .47. Fortunately, the average family also has 1.3 automobiles, and since he's the only one who can drive three-tenths of a car, he gets to use it all the time.

* ''CheaperByTheDozen'' (the book, movie version, and modern remake) has 12. In the original movie there's a scene where a representative from Planned Parenthood arrives to ask the mother (who's apparently well known as having her household in order) to head the local chapter... and upon meeting the kids at first thinks it's a boarding school and then gasps in horror, "Why -- they're all ''yours!''"

* In ''Film/{{Suffragette}}'' despite the film taking place in an age where the nuclear family wasn't that common, Maud's family consists of herself, her husband and her son. Having lost her mother at a young age, Maud never had siblings, and the fact that she never knew who her father was further serves to reduce the family size. Her husband's family is never mentioned, but it's implied he has no female relatives who can [[ParentingTheHusband cook for him]] while Maud is away. Considering that they're not that well off, it can be assumed his parents died early, too.
