* In ''Series/GilmoreGirls,'' when Jackson is running against Taylor as Town Selectman, at one point he rushes into Luke's diner (their makeshift campaign headquarters), demands "Give me the baby!", grabs his son, and leaves just as quickly. Sookie (said child's mother) and Lorelei wonder if he plans to sell it. We never ''technically'' see what he was doing, but odds are good he was invoking this trope.
