** This is doubly worse when you think back to the few times that Dee Dee herself is in trouble. You can tell that despite everything, Dexter has some serious BigBrotherInstinct going on, despite being the younger brother who gets put through hell by his sister. That says nothing good about Deedee and a lot of good about Dexter.

* The episode "Dee Dee's Tail" is about Dee-Dee convincing Dexter to turn her into a horse and, as you can imagine, she is very happy... Until she realizes her brother and her friends just want to use her for rides, not caring if she is tired (even when she is lying down after taking her friends for a ride the whole day, all they do is show her a chariot they want her to pull). Realizing that the people you love just want to use you and don't care for your feelings is really sad.

** Another meta example: This song by The Nobles, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8j-MhR4Nq30 "Mandark"]]. It's about how Mandark is Dexter's enemy because [[AlwaysSomeoneBetter he pales in comparison to Dex]] and just wants to prove that he's also a genius. What's truly sad is that it's [[GeniusBonus pretty]] [[FridgeBrilliance accurate]] to how Mandark was introduced and characterized (at least earlier on in the show), especially if you've seen "Mandarker" (mentioned below).



* Seeing young adult Dexter in 'Ego Trip'. It's really depressing to see Dexter, a boisterous, precocious little boy become neurotic and cowed. The scene with Mandark whipping him is especially hard to watch.

* The wacky and fun episode of Dexter having to deal with Deedee's imaginary friend hanging out with him ends with [[spoiler: Dexter wishing away the imaginary friend, and commanding him to never come back again. And he does. Deedee runs away sobbing.]] Then it fades to credits where Koosie just laughs and it suddenly becomes NightmareFuel.

* The ending to "Way of The Dee-Dee" with Dexter solemnly repairing his destroyed lab (that he wrecked ''himself''), as Dee-Dee runs off in tears.

** And before that, Dee-Dee wrecking his every invention and driving him to despair, him finding solace in starting his laboratory, and the first time she ever enters his lab...
--> '''Dee-Dee''': Ooohhh, WhatDoesThisButtonDo

* As quoted from Fridge Horror: "When watching ''WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory'', if you think about it too much, you'll realize what a cruel, destructive jerk [=Deedee=] really is. When she's not completely destroying her brother's life's work, she at times openly belittles, insults, humiliates, and abuses him for kicks and giggles." You need only look at such episodes as Road Rash, The Big Cheese, [=LABretto=], Framed, Sister Mom, Dimwit Dexter... you get the picture.

* The ending to "Way of The Dee-Dee" with Dexter solemnly repairing his destroyed lab (that ''he wrecked hiimself''!), as Dee-Dee runs off in tears.
** Dee Dee's ''[[MyGodWhatHaveIDone horrified]]'' reaction as Dexter wrecks his own lab is even worse--[[GoneHorriblyWrong and it all started with her trying to get Dexter to lighten up a bit.]]
