* Janine delivers a quite memorable to one to Egon (whom she's had an unrequited crush on for years) in ''WesternAnimation/TheRealGhostbusters'' episodes "The Grundel." After Ray jokingly says that a lack of calls that day means "nobody loves us," Janine assures him, "It's okay, Ray -- ''I'' love you. I love you, too, Winston. I even love Dr. Venkman here... [[VitriolicBestBuds sort of]]." The three so-honored all glance knowingly at the one left off her list before marching out of the room, whistling with their hands in their pockets, leaving the clearly annoyed Egon alone with Janine, before he gives up and starts to leave, too, only to hear...
-->'''Janine:''' Oh, Egon? I love you most of all.
-->'''Egon:''' ''[[NotSoStoic (smiles but catches himself)]]'' A-hem. Yes, well... [[{{Hypocrite}} such displays of emotion are only needed by the insecure]]. Thanks for the thought, though...

After Grundel", Ray jokingly says jokes that a their lack of calls that day means "nobody nobody loves us," them and is lectured by Egon about associating self-worth with being loved. Janine assures reassures Ray that she loves him, Winston and Peter, but ignores Egon, much to Egon's annoyance. The three named Ghostbusters make a quick exit, followed by a dejected Egon. Janine stops him half-way up the stairs to tell him she loves him most of all; while he tries to dismiss the sentiment, he practically floats upstairs with pleasure.

** And Egon is his ''first'' name, even more disrespectful. If he weren't being Dr. Venkman, he'd introduce his colleague as "Dr. Spengler". But he finds it amusing to leave out the honorifics for the smartest guy in the group (who also happens to be the second-best SnarkKnight, only behind Venkman himself.)

* ''Series/TheITCrowd'' has an OverlyLongGag during a company meeting where the Boss goes around thanking all the departments, such as the lawyers and the accountants and even the janitors, but not our titular heroes. Upon each announcement, he describes something that could potentially describe IT, only for it to be another department.

* Reality TV example: In ''Series/{{Survivor}}: Australia'', contestant Jerri Manthey excluded Tina Wesson when asked to list the members of her alliance. This eventually resulted in Tina turning on the alliance and voting Jerri out of the game in eighth place. Tina went on to win.
** It happened again in the [[ReunionShow Reunion Season]], ''Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains''. The infamous Russell Hantz, when asked to list his allies, made the exact same mistake. The kicker was that the excluded person was Jerri Manthey from the above example. Russell finished in third place, one spot ahead of Jerri.

* ''VideoGame/SandsOfDestruction'' combines this with BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor. The team helps Rhi'a break a curse in the Wind Tower that was keeping one of her ancestors as a zombie. She thanks them, and Agan asks her to stop because it's embarrassing. She the declares, quite cheerfully, that she and her ancestor thank everyone except [[TheButtmonkey Agan]]. Of course he complains.

* Recently in ''Manga/OnePiece'', the Fishmen are still doubting whether humans even care about their kind, but fortune-teller Madame Shirley says that the Straw Hat Pirates that are currently protecting Fishman Island right now are all made of humans...but then someone points to [[DemBones Brook]].

* ''Series/SiliconValley'': The obnoxious and overbearing Russ Hanneman treats the Pied Piper team in an overly familiar way, as if they're longtime friends, except for Erlich, whom he completely ignores. When Russ goes around the room stating his positive impressions of each team member, he just falls into awkward silence when he gets to Erlich. Ironically, Erlich is the only team member who actually seeks or values Russ's approval.
