** Another sidequest has you help a Goliath escape from Pandora. His plan involves stealing a beacon for a Hyperion Moonshot container (a giant shipping crate fired from their space station in orbit that impacts... ''violently'' with the ground). When you recover it, his masterful plan is to activate the beacon, stand on top of it, and let the Moonshot hit him square in the chest and blast him to red mist. Well... he got off Pandora after all.

** When Don tries to sell his ad idea for a hotel in Hawaii. The proposal has a line "The jumping off point" and the scene depicted has a triple whammy -- left clothes and shoes on the beach that imply SuicideBySea, a tie that looks like a noose, and footprints in the sand that evoke BarefootSuicide. The clients notice and voice their concern. Don insists it might be just a personal association, and then others start discussing a movie with a similar scene (later itentified as ''Film/AStarIsBorn''). When Don asks later his cretive director if that seriously makes him think of suicide, he answers eagerly while munching on a Danish pastry: "O'cworse! That's what's so gweat about it!"

* ''Series/MadMen'':
** The suicide of Lane Pryce. After a season of discussing the faulty electrical system of SCDP's prospective client Jaguar, Lane's wife gets him one shortly after they win the account. The electrical system fails as soon as Lane tries to use it to asphyxiate himself. He also broke his glasses, and uses one half as a monocle when he tries to fix the car. The whole scene is horrific and funny at the same time.

* Grelle Sutcliff from ''BlackButler'' tended to attempt suicide over the littlest mistakes she made in the earlier episodes. At first the cast is willing to stop her, but it annoys them so much they decided to no longer do so.
