* On ''ModernFamily'', Mitchell and Cameron try to keep Lily awake before their flight to Hawaii so that she sleeps in the plane and avoids this. Mitchell tells the story of how he sat next to a crying baby on a flight from New York, then reveals that the baby was Cameron whining about how they couldn't get tickets to ''BillyElliot''. * ''BigWaveDaves'' (a short-lived Creator/{{CBS}} sitcom): Marshall has to go back to the mainland from Hawaii for a business meeting. In a throwaway joke he says he doesn't want to, because he knows he'll have to sit between a fat sweaty guy and a mother with a crying baby. In TheStinger he's boarding the plane; when the flight attendant asks him if he'd like help finding his seat, he replies no thanks, he knows where it is. [[CallBack He just finds the fat sweaty guy and mother with a crying baby with a vacant seat between them.]]

* In one episode of ''{{Frasier}}'', Roz dressed up her daughter as a turkey (it was a ThanksgivingEpisode) for the flight home so people would think, "Aww, how cute!" and wouldn't be so annoyed if she started crying.

* Even children's songs get in on this. One common verse for "The Wheels on the Bus" is "The babies on the bus go 'Waah Waah Waah'...", which is usually followed by "The mommies on the bus go 'Shh Shh Shh'..."

[[AC:Music]] * "The Baggage Coach Ahead," a standard Victorian tearjerker, features a crying baby on a train and its clueless father. Considering that the mother is "dead in the coach ahead," the kid has more than enough reason to cry.

* PlayedForDrama in the last episode of ''Series/{{Mash}}'', when Hawkeye had a HeroicBSOD as a result of this trope: [[spoiler:He was trapped on a bus full of refugees who are trying to hide from North Koreans when a baby starts to cry, and the mother chooses to smother her own child rather than risk exposing them to danger. The real kicker is that Hawkeye was the deciding factor in the murder, by telling her, "Will you shut that damn thing up?" It traumatized him so badly he accused an anesthesiologist of trying to smother a patient and then drove a jeep through a wall in the officers' club and ordered a double bourbon, which he never drank, causing him to be sent to a mental hospital.]]
