Added DiffLines:

* In the opening of "Into the Fold" from ''Series/TheOrville'', Dr. Finn's older son, Ty, tells his mother that she "sucks" because he's unhappy with her for making him come on the family trip when he doesn't want to go on it. Later, after they've crashed on a hostile alien planet, he expresses regret for it, but when they finally get back in contact on the planet, she assures him that she knows people sometimes say stuff like this in anger and it doesn't mean they don't love each other.

* ''WesternAnimation/IceAge4ContinentalDrift'' After her father embarrasses her in front of all the teen mammoths, Peaches furiously states to Manny "I wish you weren't my father!". Shortly afterwards, the continent plates divides and separate Manny, Sid, and Diego away from Ellie and Peaches. As the iceberg holding her father drifts from the view, Peaches sobs and blames herself for getting separated from her father since the last thing they did was argue.

[[CharacterDeath A character has died.]] One of their loved ones recalls the last conversation they had with the deceased, and wishes they had chosen their words more carefully. Maybe they said something hurtful, perhaps even [[IWishedYouWereDead wishing them harm]] and never got a chance to take it back. Maybe the conversation was about something mundane and trivial, and they wasted the opportunity to express their true feelings to the person. Whatever the case, they look back on the incident with regret.

Sometimes inverted where the dying person feels the regret. Related to NeverGotToSayGoodbye and IWishedYouWereDead, and occasionally overlaps with DistractedFromDeath. This is a {{Death Trope|s}}, so expect spoilers.

Other times, the situation is not about death, but rather being separated and the last thing you said to that person was something you truly regret and can't make up for.

* In ''Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron'', Pietro {{Kill Steal}}s Clint's robots and him casually insults him, calling him a slow old man. Clint half-heartedly draw his bow in his general direction, muttering [[UriahGambit "Nobody would suspect a thing...]] 'Last I saw him he was under a robot. Yes, [[BlatantLies such a great loss...]]'". Then at the climax, after Clint had prepared to use his body as a human shield, in order to save an innocent child, only for Pietro to dive in front of both of them at the last second. The look in Clint's eyes said it all.

* A variation of this happens in the Literature/ASeriesOfUnfortunateEvents second book the Reptile Room when the night before Dr. Montgomery's murder the Baudelaires are too preoccupied trying to guess Count Olaf's plan to tell him anything after the movie. The following morning when they see his corpse, Violet feels guilty for never getting to say thank you for the movie and tries to remember if at least they said it earlier.
