* [[Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer Buffy]] got in a rebound relationship after Angel left. The guy, Parker, dumped her after they slept together, and Buffy got depressed. When she gets turned into a cavewoman, she saves his life (almost exactly the way she fantasized about doing to earn his affection earlier), and when he tries to apologize for how he treated her and offers to start dating her again, cave-Buffy hits him on the head with a stick.

* In Creator/WilliamShakespeare's ''The Merchant of Venice,'' the merchant Antonio defaults on a loan to the moneylender Shylock, and Shylock demands the promised collateral -- a pound of Antonio's flesh. Antonio's friends come up with twice the amount of the original loan, offering it to Shylock to forgo the pound of flesh, but Shylock refuses. [[MeaninglessVillainVictory When it is then pointed out to him]] that the agreement specified only a pound of ''flesh'', and if he were to spill a single drop of Antonio's ''blood'' while extracting the flesh, he would be executed in accordance with the laws of Venice at the time, Shylock tries to accept the previous offer of the money, but that offer is now off the table, so the trope is played both ways.

** At the end of the following 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.

This occasionally occurs as an [[AvertedTrope aversion]] of SweetAndSourGrapes. Related to LastSecondChance and HeelFaceDoorSlam, when the villain, offered one more chance to repent, initially refuses and/or accepts too late. An IronicEcho often comes into play at the refusal.
