* The film DriveMeCrazy has Melissa Joan Hart's father visit her and take her on a hot-air balloon ride to bond. While up in the air, he gives her the book "Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance" to better understand him. She replies "This stupid book is supposed to explain why you're never around?" and flings it over the edge. RogerEbert wrote in his review of the film that he cheered at this part.

* After [[DaddyDidntShow not coming to a family pinic]] in the Nick run of ''WesternAnimation/{{Doug}}'', we finally meet Roger's father in the Disney run episode "Doug's Movie Madness". Despite what's implied about him before,he proves to be a good, if not better parent than others. When all the children want to see an R-rated movie. Doug's parents use trailers and reviews that can lie to a viewer, to make their choice to not let Doug see it. When Roger asks his dad to see it, he says he'll have to watch it first to jugde it fully and ends up walking out half-way in since in this case the trailers actually kept a lot of the bloodier parts out. He tells Roger this who still doesn't understand. Later on, all the kids told no go to see it anyway and Roger's father is the only parent who catches their kid doing this, physically takes Roger from the movie and has a better, gentle, talk with him about it. Doug's parents dont find out until after and while Roger learned that sometimes parents do know what they're talking about and a better understanding of his dad, all Doug learned was that he got nightmares, and grounded without fully understanding why his parents did it in the first place. The other kids never even get caught.

* Presumably occurs at the beginning of VideoGame/AmongTheSleep, judging by the sound effects when Mom goes to answer the door in the first cutscene and via clues revealed throughout the game. Said 'visit', unfortunately, is nothing more than an entirely offscreen argument between Mom and Dad, ending with Mom shouting 'NO' loudly and clearly and apparently slamming the door in his face before giving you the present he had for you. By the way, you're a 2-year-old. [[spoiler:Dad returns at the very end, after Mom has been revealed as alcoholic, and you open the door and let him in. It's assumed this visit was actually to take you away after winning custody.]]

** After Misako and her husband (who she married at a young age) got divorced, Misako learned that she wouldn't be able to have any biological children of her own. Still wanting to have children, Misako looked into adopting a child--after finding Sana (who was abandoned as a baby by her [[TeenPregnancy then-14-years-old]] biological mother Keiko]]) and taking her to an orphanage, she eventually adopted Sana as her daughter (and as a single parent at that).

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/VeranoAzul'' has the local {{Meganekko}}'s father dropping by during summer vacation. As it's a Spanish series from TheEighties, coming right after the very conervative Franco dicratorship, merely speaking on-screen about divorce was ''revolutionary'' back then.
