* In an episode of ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' a historian from the 26th century comes to watch what happens during a crisis on the Enterprise back in the 24th. Picard wants him to tell him what the future says happened, but he's reluctant.
-->'''Rasmussen''': You must see that if I were to influence you, everything in this sector, in this quadrant of the galaxy could change. History, my history, would unfold in a way other than it already has. Now what possible incentive could anyone offer me to allow that to happen?
-->'''Picard''': I have two choices. Either way, one version of history or another will wend its way forward. The history you know or another one. Now who is to say which is better? What I do know is here, today, one way, millions of lives could be saved. Now isn't that incentive enough?
-->'''Rasmussen''': Everyone dies, Captain. It's just a question of when. All of those people down there died years before I was born. All of you up here, as well. So you see, I can't get quite as worked up as you over the fate of some colonists who, for me, have been dead a very, very long time.

** In "Tapestry", Q offers Picard a chance to avoid the incident that got him stabbed through the heart, which was replaced with an artificial one that is now failing:
--->'''Q:''' It's two days before your unfortunate encounter with a Nausicaan sword. You have that long to make whatever changes you wish. If you can avoid getting stabbed through the heart this time, which I doubt, I will take you back to what you think of as the present. And you can go on with your life with a real heart.\\
'''Picard:''' Then I won't die?\\
'''Q:''' ''(sarcastically)'' ''Of course'' you'll die. It'll just be at a later
time.

* In DC Comics, this is Death's response to Luthor ranting to her about her [[DeathIsCheap cheapness]]. Resurrection may happen every now and then but ultimately she will be the one closing shop on the universeand everyone in it so it doesn't really matter.

* ''{{Unsupervised}}'' has the episode "Fire", where the main characters are trapped in a burning building during the climax. After their initial escape attempt fails, Russ, the resident ButtMonkey, says "Oh well, we all gonna die". In his case, it's more understandable than usual considering how utterly shitty his life is.
