Often parodied if the character being told to wait is incapacited and thus unable to do anything ''other'' than wait. See HeroHarassesHelpers for when the hero rudely rejects the help of other characters to fight with him. Not to be confused with FineYouCanJustWaitHereAlone.

See MostDefinitelyNotAccompanyingUs when a junior character wants to come along but is told off (which rarely works). Not to be confused with FineYouCanJustWaitHereAlone.

* ''Series/DoctorWho'' As shown on the quotes page, the Doctor has been facing this problem for forty years. RuleNumberOne is "Don't wander off" yet the companions always do.
** Mickey and Rose do this in the episode ''The Girl in the Fireplace'', wandering off to explore after he just told them not to run off.
** The unstated but very obvious ''reason'' the Doctor keeps facing this problem is because people who would wait behind when told to are not people he would consider interesting enough as travel companions. The Doctor himself never quite seems to pick up on this.
