* On ''Series/{{ER}}'', Mark Greene's daughter Rachel starts her period unexpectedly while at Elizabeth Corday's apartment for Thanksgiving dinner. Elizabeth is reluctant to give her tampons given how young she is (ten and change), and tells Mark's father that one of them will have to stay with Rachel while the other goes down to the corner drug store. He quickly volunteers, but slips on the ice coming back, suffering a minor head wound and having to go to County (where Mark is working). He grumbles about the confusing variety while being stitched up.

* Creator/BillEngvall did a routine about getting pads for his daughter, since his wife couldn't get them that day. Of course {{Hilarity Ensue|s}}d, because a) his son found them first, and b) tried to be helpful by hollering ''the entire length of the aisle to his dad'' that'd found them.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/MarriedWithChildren''. Peggy asks Bud to do this for her. He's horrified, naturally.
* Implied in ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}'', when Jerry asks George "Is there any Tampax in your house?". When George reluctantly replies "Yes", Jerry declares, "You've got yourself a girlfriend".
* In Season 2 of ''Series/TheRealWorld'', one of the male housemates cringes when one of the women mentions not feeling well because of her period. She tells him to get over it as odds are he'll have to do this for his girlfriend or wife someday and proceeds to give him a lecture on the different types of products.

* As many men can tell you, this is quite common in RealLife.
** Interestingly, it actually applies to girls as well, because a) there's usually a year or so in the beginning where other people knowing that you have a bodily function that literally half the rest of the planet also has is ''really'' embarrassing which makes buying your own pads/tampons ''torture'' until you get over yourself and realize that no one cares, and b) the many different products/brands/sizes etc. are confusing even if you're a girl, until you've become familiar enough with the whole thing that you just find one or a few products you feel comfortable with and stick with them forever.
