* ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}'': In Episode 128, while trying to raise money to buy himself a new video game, Stumpy plays music while Kaeloo and Quack Quack are on the subway. As one would expect, he's an absolutely DreadfulMusician. Since Kaeloo already gave him money on three separate occasions in that episode, she initially refuses to pay him, but he threatens to keep playing if she doesn't, [[BegoneBribe so she reluctantly gives him more money.]]

* One time on ''MadAboutYou'' Paul got some change for a pay phone (remember those?) from a street performer by putting a dollar in the guitar case and taking coins out. He was looked at askance by the performer and passers-by, who thought he was just taking money out. He made a big deal about putting in a five and just taking a little change.
