** The fall is hilarious at first, but then Bob doesn't get up. [[JerkassRealization Dan is then racked]] [[NeverLiveItDown with guilt over his prank]] while Bob spends several days in a coma, followed by months of recovery and physiotherapy. Infinitely more angst points for Dan [[IDidntMeanToKillHim if the prank led to Bob's untilmely death]].

* '''Justified''': Dan and Bob are actually mortal enemies, involved in a fight to the death. Dan's just evil enough to use such a dirty tactic as tripping, and then laughing at Bob's fall.
* '''Inverted''': Dan trips Bob, who lands on his nose, causing it to bleed. While Dan panics, [[TearsOfRemorse hardly keeping himself from crying]] [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone and trying to call the hospital in horror]], Bob stands up, sighs, and grabs a tissue.

* '''Zig Zagged''': Dan very nearly trips Bob, but then at the very last second Bob catches his balances, and rights himself, shoving Dan, who nearly falls. Dan then grabs Bob for balance, and both of them start to wobble. They both stop each other from going over, and thank their lucky stars, before Claire pushes them both over.

* '''Defied''': Dan considers harming Bob for fun, realizes what an [[WhatTheHellHero outraged lecture]] he'll get from Alice afterward, and doesn't do it.
