In the middle of a crisis, calamity, or sheer unadulterated apocalypse, something terrible happens (but not, typically, any more terrible than happens in any given episode) and TheHero completely and utterly gives up. Common lines that go with the phenomenon are "I'm too old for this," "[[OptOut I can't do it]]," or "[[BystanderSyndrome Somebody else can]]." May even be the follow-up to a HeroicBSOD, which is similar but non-consensual.

* UsefulNotes/SimonBolivar had this both in the "forced to do it" and "really I want to retire, leave me alone" variety. His first couple of attempts to win independence for Norther South America (Colombia, Venezuela and so on) almost all started out promising enough only for the Spanish to come back with a vengeance and Bolivar escaping by the skin of his teeth into exile. Bolivar would then sit a round in exile as a "private citizen" and plot the next attempt. After he finally managed to make independence stick, he originally intended to pull a Cincinnatus and retire to his farm (freeing all his slaves in the process, mind you), but it was not to be - armies would always end up under his command and he would be appointed to more presidencies than he could resign from. Critics of course said this was all a deliberate ploy to be given absolute power (like Octavian/Augustus had done nearly two thousand years earlier), but Bolivar did not attempt to resign once or twice, but too often to count. It never stuck.

* University of Florida football coach Urban Meyer announced that he was stepping down from his position, only to announce the next day that he would be keeping it, though he would take a leave of absence.
** Almost exactly one year later, he retired again, apparently for real. At the very least, he's retired as Florida's coach, since they've already hired his replacement.
** Less than a year after that retirement, he took the head coaching job at Ohio State University.

** Castiel has done this a couple of times, too. In season seven he says that he doesn't want to fight anymore and refuses to engage in any active combat for several episodes because [[spoiler:he's distraught over how many deaths he caused at the start of the season and is insane from taking Sam's Hell-pain.]] Finally Dean is attacked in front of him and he gets involved ''[[{{Protectorate}} fast]]''. In season nine, after he [[spoiler:becomes human]], he helps Dean out on a case but doesn't want to get involved in any major action because [[spoiler: being human leaves him much more vulnerable and very unsure of himself]]. He ends up killing the MonsterOfTheWeek, and the next episode he shows up in, he's investigating a case on his own.
