* In one Scrooge McDuck story, Scrooge and his rival Glomgold get into a race to find El Dorado. At first, it seems that Glomgold won, until Scrooge points out that while may have found the gold, the ownership of the city technically goes to him due to buying an ancient bank at the beginning of the story. Due to unpaid interest, Glomgold now owes Scrooge all the money in the world. Then some tax men show and reveal that Scrooge has to pay taxes for the gold, the amount of which made him broke 100 years ago. In the end, Scrooge is forced to give up El Dorado, but he admits it was worth having Glomgold so indebted to him for just a few moments.

* ''ComicStrip/{{Garfield}}'' [[http://www.garfield.com/comics/vault.html?yr=2009&addr=090707 asked an alarm-o-clock what time it was and it said it couldn't know because it wasn't wearing a watch. Garfield broke it and it said "It was worth it".]]
** In a much earlier strip, Jon buys a rubber hamburger, and lets Garfield try to eat it, then laughs hysterically at the results... Until he realizes Garfield has caught on, and is angry at him. In the last panel, Jon's clothes are torn and his face is bruised - Garfield clearly having beaten him up - and he says, "It was worth it."
* In a ''Cathy'' comic, the titular character is at a boutique trying on a swimsuit. Disgusted with how unflattering it makes her look, Cathy quickly changes out of it, then slams it several times with her purse, and literally ''rips the swimsuit to shreds'' in a rage. She mutters "It was worth it" in the final panel, as she pays for a pile of torn fabric at a register.

* All over the place in the ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' episode "Amazon Women in the Mood". Fry, Kif, and Zapp Brannigan are sentenced to "death by [[UnusualEuphemism snu-snu]]" with [[AmazonianBeauty giant Amazon women]]. We see three skeletons of former victims with crushed pelvises and ''extremely'' satisfied expressions. Kif is the only one to object.

* A fairly sweet example occurred on ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'', in a flashback episode where Marge and Homer were describing how they met. They had detention together, and Homer kept on introducing himself to Marge despite Principal Dondalinger giving him more detention with every word he spoke. Finally he got to the last word of his sentence, and then bellowed at Dondalinger "It was worth it!"

* The ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' episode "Casa Bonita", where Cartman is told by the police he "caused a whole town to panic, alienated his friends, and is now going to juvenile hall for a week", all in the name of going to the eponymous establishment. When asked if it was all worth it, Cartman simply replies "...totally."

* This is Zigzagged in one episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheGrimAdventuresOfBillyAndMandy'', when Grim and Billy get the devious idea of putting The Mask of the Beast on Mandy; the mask sticks to the wearer and turns into a hideous monster each time they are rude and malicious (and by being civil and polite reversing). Grim tells Billy beforehand that he ''knows'' they're going to pay dearly for this, but it's going to be worth it. Turns out to be true enough; at the end of the episode, after the two of them have only made it worse by mocking her, she's become a demonic donkey-like creature, and has tied them up, and is kicking them both in the behind. Grim still says it was ''probably'' worth it, but says he hopes they both "don't have to sit down for a while."
** Mandy herself in that episode also counts. She's told up front by Grim that she'll only change if she continues to be cruel and mean. She tries to not be mean for a while but soon reaches her limit and attacks the two. She's last shown fully transformed, but clearly prefer it to serving Billy and Grim.

* An absolutely [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments hilarious]] one appears in ''Literature/{{Neverwhere}}''. After Door gets kidnapped, and taken into the labyrinth, Hunter mentions that they would have to be mad to go in without the Angel's Token, as there would be nothing to protect them from the Beast of London. The Marquis pulls out an Angel's Token that he had taken from Door's father's study [[BrickJoke much earlier in the book]], and coyly asks "You mean like this one?"

* In [[TheKingkillerChronicle The Wise Man's Fear]], main character Kvothe returns to the University after a half-year absence. During his readmission interview, his most hated teacher declares that he had heard Kvothe was dead (in tones that implied he wished it was true). Kvothe responds by saying he heard the teacher wears a racy red corset as proof that one shouldn't believe everything they hear. He's immediately charged with Improper Address of a Master and fined for his insolence. He declares it money well spent.

Every action has consequences. Some actions have particularly nasty consequences. Ones where you'll have to ask yourself after all is said and done, WasItReallyWorthIt

to:

Every action has consequences. Some actions have particularly nasty consequences. Ones where you'll have consequences... so unpleasant that the character has to ask yourself after all is said and done, him or herself, WasItReallyWorthIt



This StockPhrase is usually said after a character does something that they really shouldn't have, but the opportunity was too good to pass up. Things like peeping on someone at the [[HotSpringsEpisode hot springs]], beating up [[TheScrappy an annoying character]], or anything else they could expect to have very bad consequences. But they don't care. Because it was Worth It.
