* In ''DiffrentStrokes'', Arnold gets into a fight with the bullying son of the landlord's brother who is subbing for a short time. This leads to a loud confrontation where the brother confronts Mr. Drummond, threatens to evict the family and provokes Drummond to punch the blowhard out. This gives the landlord the excuse to exploit a lease violation that the brother found to raise the rent on the Drummonds, with a veiled threat of eviction to convince them to give in. The punchline is this: after the Drummonds cave in to this threat, the father tells the kids that this is the result of his act of violence. However, when asked if it was worth it, Mr. Drummond immediately remarks it was, for having the pleasure of shutting a bully up.

* 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.

* In the ''[[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Friendship Is Magic]]'' fic ''[[http://www.equestriadaily.com/2011/03/story-circle-of-friends.html Circle of Friends]]'', Immortal!Twilight talks with her apprentice about the many ponies she's seen grow up and pass on, and concludes that the friendship she shared with them was worth the pain of mourning.
-->"Soon, my most faithful student, the time will come when I send you out into the world to learn its ways. In that time, I believe, you will discover many great and wonderful truths about friendship. But allow me to give you the first lesson now.
-->"It is this: that all things pass in the course of time, that forever does not exist. That every Hello contains within itself the echoes of its own Goodbye. That for every person you come to know in your journey through life, no matter how long you know them, there will always come a day when you will see them for the last time. And yet..."
-->"And yet... it is all worth it." The princess looked back up at the stars, the light from the moon reflecting in her eyes. "The time between Hello and Goodbye, if you fill it properly, will sustain you through all your days. Every shared moment, every laugh, every precious sliver of time spent with someone you care for is a treasure, to be kept safe forever."
