** In "Quality Time", Jay tries to seduce Michael to get his attention away from the game that he's sucked into at the moment, by sensually dancing for him... only for Michael to tell her to do that off to the side while still playing his game and not even giving Jay a glance.

** Claire: In Claire's fantasy Michael is the manager of a big boy band known as "Chocolate Chip", and beyond that, not much else. It is a fantasy mostly about [[ItsAllAboutMe the Chocolate Chip band singing love songs about her that feed Claire's ego]], ignoring other possible outcomes.
*** Reality: Michael argues, however, that firstly it's likely that the boy-band could [[HoYay actually be homosexual, and while they say hi to Claire like in her fantasy... they turn around and direct their affection towards Junior instead and try to touch him]], with him [[HatesBeingTouched looking]] ''[[HatesBeingTouched very]]'' [[HatesBeingTouched uncomfortable about the aforementioned attention.]] Secondly, he makes the point that [[BreakTheHaughty the world does not revolve around Claire, and Claire looking rather disappointed her "unbreakable" fantasy was broken.]]

* [[GoodParents Good Father]]: The Kyle children had their own idealized versions of Michael, i.e. what made him perfect in their eyes in the episode, "Perfect Dad".
** Junior: In Junior's fantasy, Michael happens to be a big name rap-star who sold platinum albums. However, it's Junior who's the one that is admired by Michael's fangirls. Not only this, but Junior turns out to be quite [[{{Abuse}} abusive towards said women]], treating them as if they were objects. Claire counters this by saying if Junior treated a woman in real life the way he did in said fantasy, she'd slap him upside his head.
*** Reality: Junior would be the son of the big rap-star, but not much else.

Dad" basically centers around this, with the kids elaborating to Michael on their definition of a perfect father, whilst being [[KarmaHoudini immune to repercussions]] as they are under a family meeting as they know Michael ''will'' retaliate otherwise.
** Junior: In Junior's fantasy, Michael happens to be a big name rap-star who sold platinum albums. However, it's Junior who's the one that is admired by Michael's fangirls. Not only this, but Junior turns out to be quite [[{{Abuse}} abusive towards said women]], treating them as if they were objects.objects and in Claire's case, a [[{{Slave}} slave who obeys Junior's every command]]. Claire counters this by saying if Junior treated a woman in real life the way he did in said fantasy, she'd slap him upside his head.
*** Reality: Junior would be the son of the big rap-star, but not much else. Junior would also be that nerd who's loved by no woman except his girlfriend, Allison. Michael would likely be unfaithful to Jay with the excuse that he'd hook her up, too. Michael would also deny his son calling him father, being called the Grand Poobah instead. Furthermore, Junior would lose his girlfriend to Michael as she would be a fan of his, and the groupie and Allison would fight over Michael.
** Kady: In Kady's fantasy, Michael is a basically an [[{{Expy}} expy of Barney the Dinosaur]] who is quite obnoxious, carefree, and believes that anything can be resolved by dancing. Michael would also have magical powers, such as [[NoBodyLeftBehind making people vanish by pointing at them and saying "Poof!"]]
*** Reality: While this would be adorable, it would be quite the opposite in more serious situations, such as if Kady suffered an injury, Michael wouldn't take it seriously; he would be about as [[AdultsAreUseless useful as snow shoes in Summer]] in that regard, thinking that dancing would help heal injuries as opposed to more logical approaches, such as putting Neosporin on a scraped kneecap.
