* ''{{Doug}}'': One episode begins with Patty being turned down from the school baseball team for being a girl, ends with Patty turning down school coach's offer to let her join after he saw what she could do (or rather, could have done: Roger's game-winning catch for the school was all that prevented her from driving in Doug as the game-winning run for her team the Pulverizers).

* A GuideDangIt moment in the first ''SpaceQuest'' involved this when selling your hoverbike. If taken, the first offer would leave you without a needed item later in the game. Said item would be offered the second time, but ''never again''.

** At the end of the same episode, Bartlet tries to resolve the situation by walking to Capitol Hill to negotiate another compromise solution (earning large amounts of positive press along the way). When the Speaker and his allies respond by keeping Bartlet waiting as they try to decide on their demands he simply walks away, leaving the Speaker painted as the one responsible for the continuing shutdown.

* ''MonstersVsAliens'': After Susan turns into a [[AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever 50-foot woman]] (well, 49-foot, 11 and 1/2-inch woman) on what was to be her wedding day, her fiance breaks it off with her. Later, after she helps save the world, he offers to "forgive" her and take her back (largely to further his own career as a newscaster). Cue the ([[JerkAss much deserved]]) HumiliationConga.

* Creator/BillCosby summed it up in this famous quote: "When you're poor, people won't give you five cents for a hot dog. When you're a millionaire, people will pay through the nose to have lunch with you."

* Happens on {{House}} when a detective offers a deal for House to go to rehab in exchange for temporarily giving up his licence. When a depressed House shows up (on the last day of the deadline) finally beaten into accepting it, the cop says it's off the table. In this case he's not (just) being a jerk; he's gotten new evidence since he made the offer.
* In ''BoardwalkEmpire'', after Eli betrays his brother Nucky to join the Commodore's conspiracy and makes a phone call to taunt him about it, Nucky offers him one last chance to walk away from it; Eli blows him off, but after the Commodore has a stroke, loses faith in the conspiracy and begs Nucky to let him accept the offer. Eventually averted; even though Nucky tells him "That offer's gone" and then [[KickTheSonOfABitch slaps him around]], Eli is [[spoiler: the only member of the conspiracy left alive by the end of the season,]] and he and Nucky have repaired their relationship to some extent.
