* In the American War of Independence, General George Washington, typically a gentile and implacable "father to his men" type of leader, cursed at his subordinate Charles Lee after retreating when he had a chance to destroy the British army while on the move and perhaps end the war (in 1777!). This is covered in the musical Hamilton.

* Former Pittsburgh Steeler wide receiver, Hines Ward, was notorious for ''always'' smiling on the field and sidelines. Dropped a pass (rare event for him), smile and shake it off. Hospitalize someone with a block? Smile and wave the medics over. When he lost a fumble in easy field goal range in the final minutes of a tied game against the Tennessee Titans by trying to stretch for extra yards, thereby costing the Steelers a sure chance to win the game in regulation, and allowing the Titans to take a knee and take the game to overtime, he was visibly pissed off with himself on the sidelines. The television commentators noted that he must have been ''really'' mad to stop smiling.

* In ''Film/GalaxyQuest'', ClassicallyTrainedExtra Alexander Dane hates being known as a character from a sci-fi series, and hates his CatchPhrase even more, spending most of the movie trying to get out of saying it, or saying it in monotone. However, when a Thermian who's always looked up to Alex's character is shot and mortally wounded, Alexander says, sincerely, "Quellek... by Grabthar's hammer... by the Sons of Warvan... you shall be... avenged" before opening a can of whoop-ass on the bad aliens.

** One not for Jesus, but for another figure in his story, and which ties into real-life archaeological searches for historical evidence of the life and passion of the son of God. Remember the part where he was brought before Pontius Pilate, an extremely ruthless prefect, and Pilate, instead of his usual brutal routine, had the Jews choose between him and another prisoner on the occasion of the Passover? It just so happens that Jesus was brought before Pilate at an extremely delicate time for the Roman Empire, which had just executed Lucius Aelius Sejanus, once the most powerful man in the Empire apart from Caesar himself, on charges of treason against the Emperor Tiberius and was on the hunt for Sejanus's friends and allies; Pilate must've realized at the time that one wrong move and he himself could be next, so he handled Jesus's case with an uncharacteristically cautious approach.



* Usually, Creator/WaltDisney ended his meetings with his staff with "See you later." During his final meeting with Marc Davis, in the middle of a terminal illness that would claim his life before the month was even halfway out, Disney left with these words: "Goodbye, Marc." That sent a signal to Marc that Disney didn't have very long to live.
