** Inside Draketooth's complex, Varsuuvius falls into a trapdoor while [[spoiler:distraught over the fact that shi was responsible for the death of the entire Draketooth clan]]. Every so often someone asks about hir and we get a cutaway panel to hir unconscious at the bottom of the pit. At one point they start discussing how since all the illusions are dispelled, all the traps are trivially easy to spot...

NoOneElseIsThatDumb. The inverse is NobodysThatDumb where a character proves even ''they'' aren't dumb enough to do something.

** GLaDOS's chamber features a back door labelled: "GLaDOS Emergency Shutdown and [[TheCakeIsALie Cake Dispensary]]". Naturally, there's [[ButThouMust nothing to do]] but try to open it. GLaDOS can't believe it when you fall for it.

** One of the worst (as it had an unintended "casualty") was when Xander mocks Spike by saying that only a nutcase or a complete loser would sleep with him... [[ObliviousMockery in the presence of Buffy]] who had done so just that the night before
