* This was the biggest part of the plot of "The Joker's Favor", a famous episode of ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries''. To summarize: A [[{{Everyman}} blue-collar worker named Charlie Collins]] was having a very bad day, and when he was coming home from work, a rude motorist cutting him off the last straw; he cussed the man out in a fit of road rage, only to find out, to his horror, it was the Joker.

For two years, the Joker [[ItAmusedMe kept track of Charlie like a sadistic "hobby"]] (Charlie moving to Ohio with his family and changing his name didn't help much), then called him to tell him he wanted him to make good on that promise. The "favor" was part of the Joker's plan to infiltrate a testimonial dinner for Commissioner Gordon and plant a bomb; Charlie simply had to hold the door open. However, Charlie then found his hand glued to the doorknob, the Joker telling him [[ExactWords he never said he'd let him live this time]]. [[spoiler:Charlie got even in spades however, after Batman foiled the plan; after confronting the Joker in an alley and belting him across the face, he responded to his threat by producing a bomb of his own and threatening to kill both of them.
