[[folder:Film]] * Hal Holbrook's Oscar-nominated supporting role in ''Film/IntoTheWild'' culminates in one of these. * A New Zealand short film played with this trope. Three men who lost a common friend use this excuse (as well as similar and increasingly sillier ones) to hide that they are crying. In the end, one of the men finally breaks down and runs off sobbing. An uncomfortable silence occurs before the other two convince themselves that it was just his allergies acting up.

John Conner is talking to the Terminator about his mother Sarah Conner and his father Kyle Reese. -->'''John:''' Mom and him were only together for one night. She still loves him, I guess.
