Common mistake that just gets me. No biggie
* Drives the plot of ''Film/RaisingHelen'', as the kids go not to the straight-laced, responsible older sister, who already has a husband and a couple of kids of her own, but to the [[ChildrenRaiseYou free-wheeling younger sister.]] Neither sister really understands this decision until the end of the movie.

* %* ''{{Roseanne}}'' * %* ''HomeImprovement'' * ''{{Friends}}'' * The ''{{Friends}}'' episode "The One With Rachel's Other Sister" has Ross and Rachel discussing who gets Emma. Said other sister is horrified that she's not on the list, just because she's a terrible self-centred person. Chandler is also annoyed that he's only on the list as long as Monica's part of the equation, although he later proves himself to be a better parent than they thought: -->'''Chandler''': So let me get this straight. So my two friends die, I get Emma. Then my wife dies, then Emma -- the one tiny ray of hope left in my life -- gets taken away from me? %* ''MalcolmInTheMiddle''

* In ''KevinAndKell'', the title couple went through every relative they could think of as a possible guardian for Coney, and finally settled on Lindesfarne, who was then still in high school (she is now a graduate student and married), but was still deemed the most level-headed, mature, reliable candidate available at the time. This arc starts at [[http://www.kevinandkell.com/1997/kk1006.html this strip]] and continues through that week.

* The aversion of this is what kicks off ''ASeriesOfUnfortunateEvents''. Rather than name a guardian for their children, the Baudelaires decide that they should go to any person their executor feels like assigning them to, so long as they are somehow related. Rather than carefully considering who would be the best choice for this task, said executor chooses their absurdly distant cousin [[BigBad Count Olaf]] (who they've never even ''heard of'' before) [[DepartmentOfChildDisservices on the grounds that his house is on the way to the train station, which enables him to drop them off on the way to work without disrupting his schedule]].

to:
* ''YesDear'' ''YesDear'' fulfills Point #2 to a Tee: Greg, unsure if he can trust Jimmy and Christine to raise Sammy, tests Jimmy by giving him a sum of money to do with as he chooses. Jimmy tries to start up several small businesses, all of which fail... but Greg is impressed because Jimmy was trying to create a job where he could spend time with his kids, thus proving he's a good father. * ''TwoAndAHalfMen''''TwoAndAHalfMen'': Charlie may be an irresponsible, drunken lout; but when Jake lands in the emergency room, Charlie's all over it. A little panicky, but still all over it.
