** 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.

* Real Life example: Music/TheWhiteStripes made the ''Fell In Love With A Girl'' music video entirely out of Legos and stop-motion. Jack White consulted with the Lego company about having Lego figures of Meg and himself packaged with the release of the single. Lego refused, claiming they wouldn't cater to a market that wasn't children. When the video was a hit, Lego changed their minds, only for Jack to refuse.
