** The play also points out the utter harm lifelong family feuds can do, especially when young people are sucked into them. The Prince points out how it was ultimately the feud that drove Romeo and Juliet to the grave.

* ''FanFic/HerInnerDemons'' drops a serious message that [[DidYouThinkICantFeel the meek girl in the corner does have feelings too]], and bullying them can turn [[BewareTheQuietOnes them vengeful and angry]]. The Shadowbolts couldn't believe Sci-Twilight [[spoiler: could become Midnight Sparkle]] and are abashed when explains that she was becoming increasingly vindictive ''well before'' the Friendship Games due to all the abuse, and that the Shadowbolts only made things worse to the point where [[spoiler: she became as power hungry as Sunset was, and thus could be swayed by the dark side of her mind into becoming Midnight Sparkle]].

** A September 1993 storyline focused on Michael and his friends joining a protest against a student bus fare hike. However, they're mostly doing it for fun, as they get to block rush hour traffic and shout slogans at the police. After it ends, John picks them up (angry at their involvement after seeing it on the news) and tells them what the bus fare hike is about; the 30% bus fare hike is a gradual raise for the next three years (something that the city voted in favor for last spring) and the new fares mean that someone could travel twice as far, meaning that the protest was pointless and detrimental. The lesson? Don't join a protest unless you know all the facts, and if you are going to do a protest don't do it for fun.

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LiG0AE8zdTU Confessions of a Republican]], a 1964 election campaign ad, a jittery Republican voter, played by actor William Bogert expresses his doubts about Barry Goldwater. It drops several about why voting for a guy just because he was a member of your party is bad if the guy acts irresponsible. While there was a clear bias in the message, the actor, William Bogert, was a real Republican expressing his fears about Goldwater.

* Michaels actually had to learn a lot of lessons, especially given his penchant for AesopAmnesia. Just a few months after the Jericho incident, his family lost all its money in unsound investments (this was the autumn of 2008, remember) and he [[WrestlingDoesntPay desperately needed a second job]]. Wrestling/JohnBradshawLayfield [[FauxAffablyEvil "generously"]] took Michaels on as an employee, only to force him to compromise all his integrity by repeatedly helping JBL cheat to win the World Heavyweight Championship. At one point, none other than TheUndertaker confronted Michaels about this, warning that [[EarnYourHappyEnding "Sometimes it's hell getting to heaven."]] Rarely have truer words about the basic human condition (even if that human ''is'' a Superstar) been spoken.
