*** Justified by the BritishTeeth trope. Cosmetic dental procedures are not popular in England, due to their perception as a sign of excess. Unless her teeth were sufficiently misaligned to risk damage, her parents may have elected to leave them as is rather than risk replacing one social stigma (large teeth) with another (rich girl teeth).

* In ''TheJohnLarroquetteShow'', John gets a physical that reveals high cholesterol, but his doctor brushes it off as unimportant, insisting that "the whole cholesterol scare is a bunch of bull". This comforts John, until the next day when the doctor dies of a massive heart attack.

* In ''Film/RiseOfTheGuardians'', the Guardians have the ''opposite'' problem. They spend so much time protecting children, they're now too busy to actually ''spend time'' with them!
* ''The Wedding Planner'''s eponymous character has a lonely and awkward love life. On another level, she's always dreamed of having a quiet, simple wedding- nothing like the elaborate, chaotic galas she supplies for clients. [[FridgeBrilliance Of course, she knows firsthand how nerve-wracking the latter can be...]]

** One political cartoon is of Wilson himself dragging a small boy in a sailor suit to a fancy gala and scolding him on his poor behavior while the boy tries his damnedest to refuse to comment on America's stance on the League of Nations.

* On ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer,'' Willow's mom cites many statistics and social movements related to young people, but seems unable to view her own daughter as an individual unique from anyone else.

* In ''Series/{{Scrubs}}'', Turk suffers from several unusual symptoms for a while, but doesn't take it seriously until Molly Clock asks him how he would diagnose someone else with the exact same symptoms. Turk replies that it sounds a lot like the patient has developed diabetes. He goes to be examined and does have it.

* Dr Dibbs from ''Series/DocMartin'' is stunningly incompetent in treating herself, on a massive amount of self-prescribed medication and having missed an almost fatal diagnosis. She's barely any better with her patients.
** Given that she spent over 20 years working as a nurse without any problem, it's ''heavily'' implied the only reason Dr Dibbs is such a nervous wreck is because her [[CoattailRidingRelative husband]] pushed her to become a Doctor and she cracked under the pressure.

* In ''Series/{{Monk}}'', Dr. Charles Kroger is great as a psychiatrist, but he's at a loss when it comes to being a father to his own son Troy. In the episode "Mr. Monk Gets a New Shrink", it's revealed that Charles has taken three paternity tests at the "request" of his son. Troy also calls his parents by their first names, and it turns out that Lieutenant Disher has arrested Troy once before (Troy responds "no" when Randy asks him if he's stayed out of trouble).
