* The LifetimeMovieOfTheWeek ''A Long Way Home'' (also known as ''Aftermath'') essentially begins InMediasRes with a family trying to heal after such an incident--the mother walked in on the father fondling the daughter and dialogue reveals that this was the third time that this had happened, though they are both adamant that he never raped her. Unusually, the recovery process involves them trying to reconcile with the father, who is coming home after being kicked out. In the course of counseling, it comes out that both parents suffered this at the hands of their own father's. Ultimately, RealityEnsues--everyone, including the father, is unable to trust him and constantly afraid that it will happen again.

** "Daughter" ''sounds'' rather explicit in its subject matter (Father/Daughter incest), once you get past Vedder's nigh-unintelligible singing voice. Though it reads like that ("she holds the hand that holds her down"), "Daughter" is actually about a child with dyslexia ("mother reads aloud - child tries to understand it"), whose parents don't understand her disability and use harsh physical punishment to deal with it ("the shades go down"). Explained [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daughter_%28song%29#cite_note-3 here]] on TheOtherWiki.
