* A good response to this trope is admit that ''no'', I don't know what I did. If the accuser believes you are playing dumb, say something like "Well, maybe I am dumb. Humor me, what did I do?" If at this point, the accuser still refuses to tell you, then he or she most likely has a reason (he or she may just be trying to get you to admit to something you didn't actually do, or feels whatever you did was so heinous, so absolutely vile, that he or she is shocked that you don't remember).



* Basically, this happens all the time, reasons ranging from genuine to petty. That snippy kid who just wants a reason to be mad, the girlfriend who insists that her boyfriend has to have mind-reading powers, those who don't want to hear excuses, or even people who just want to watch their victims squirm at their mercy.


Added DiffLines:

* This basically happened in the correspondence which led to the fatal duel between Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr. Someone had apparently told Burr that Hamilton offered "a still more despicable opinion" of him. Burr demanded that Hamilton either deny it or apologize, Hamilton responded that he couldn't do either if he didn't know what he was accused of saying. Burr wanted an apology anyway. (It's quite likely that he was deliberately trying to pick a fight).

* This is one of the problems in Akane Tendo's relationship with Ranma Saotome, of ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf''. She is willing to see the worst of anything slightly suspicious that Ranma does, something Ranma has actually [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] in the anime, [[CovertPervert jump to perverse conclusions]] about Ranma's goals/intentions/motivations, has been shown to [[SelectiveObliviousness consciously ignore elements of Ranma's own attempts at self-defense to prove her point and selectively remember events to further back up her opinions]] (manga version of Hinako's introduction), and believe the lies of people like Shampoo and Ukyo... who, by the way, are her devout '''rivals''' for Ranma's hand.
** She isn't the only person in ''Ranma ½'' who does this, though... unusually, however, the other people who do so tend to be Ranma's ''male rivals'', using this trope in relation to their particular love interest being upset and them blaming that fact on Ranma (and using it as an excuse to try and beat the hell out of him). A good example would be Ryoga and Kuno attacking Ranma after he "kissed" Akane during the first Nekoken story, an event that Ranma doesn't remember due to "Kitty Ranma" being a kind of split personality.
** Never mind that fact that it was Kuno who awakened "Kitty Ranma" in by exposing him to his fear of cats, but is too proud and stupid to take responsibility for the incident.

* Subverted nicely in the Will Smith film ''Film/{{Hitch}}'', where the object of his affections took the word of a known SmugSnake, with every reason to lie, and proceeded to break up with Hitch without explanation, then trash him in her gossip column, before confronting him at a restaurant one night. Hitch, after pausing for shock, calls her out on this and corrects her loudly in front of everyone, leaving her looking quite the fool.
** Then the film follows up with having her apologize and him not accept it, thus making the true climax him publicly apologizing for not accepting her apology, and begging her to come back to him.

* In the ''Series/{{Monk}}'' episode "Mr. Monk and the Captain's Marriage", a police sergeant tells Captain Stottlemeyer that he's having an affair with Stottlemeyer's wife, and the captain is suspicious enough to have his wife followed, despite her protestations of innocence. And then he's ''surprised'' when she asks for a divorce.
** Though it also works the other way: Stottlemeyer's wife was planning to divorce him before any of that even happened, and flat-out refused to explain why when he asked. Given that the audience saw virtually nothing over the series to back her up, it made her look like quite a bitch.
*** Stottlemeyer explains it himself to Monk in a later episode, the one where Monk gets shot. He's acting like a tremendous {{Jerkass}} to Natalie because he blames her for his injury, and she accepts it because she blames herself, and so due to essentially working round the clock taking care of Monk, wheeling him around in a wheelchair, etc., she is very nearly broken down. Stottlemeyer takes Monk aside, warns him that if he keeps acting like that Natalie will leave, then proceeds to state that he knows this because Monk is acting like Stottlemeyer himself and that that was why his wife left him.
* This happens to ''Series/{{Dexter}}'' during his second season. His girlfriend overhears Dexter's Narcotics Anonymous sponsor, who she's already suspicious of, mention on his answering phone that they spent the night together, and walks out on him. It's true...except it just means he fell asleep with his head in her lap after talking about his terrible childhood. She is his counselor, of sorts, after all. It's not actually shown if it was on purpose but considering how Lila turns out it would make complete sense that she did it on purpose knowing Rita would be there.
** However, Dexter has just recently revealed that he is a drug addict and he has been lying to her about things to hide his addiction. So it is not much of a stretch for her to believe that he would cheat on her as well. At least she does not find out that he is lying about being a drug addict and is actually a serial killer.
** When Rita finally confronts Dexter about it, he answers truthfully: he didn't have sex with Lila ''that'' night. Rita immediately picks up on the clarification and breaks up with Dexter. They work things out in the end, though.

* There's a refreshing and awesome subversion on ''Series/DesperateHousewives'', exactly the type of show which would (and does) play it straight. Lynette thinks that Tom is having an affair with the mother of Porter's friend; Tom knows that it's actually Porter who's having the affair, but doesn't know the identity of the "girl" in question. Lynette confronts Tom about it, he's relieved that she knows which just makes her even angrier, it all seems like it's going to lead straight into an example of this trope, ''until''... Tom, still oblivious to the fact that she's mad at ''him'', manages to get in enough words that Lynette is able to piece together the truth.
