* In ''Film/ItsAMadMadMadMadWorld'', the previously good-natured Col. Hawthorne gives one to the entire [[{{Eagleland}} country]] after Finch presses his BerserkButton by insulting England.
-->'''Hawthorne''': I must say, if I had the grievous misfortune to be a citizen of ''this'' benighted country, I should be the most hesitant at offering any criticism whatever of any other.\\
'''Finch''': Wait a minute, are you knocking this country? Are you saying something against America?\\
'''Hawthorne''': Against it? I should be positively astounded to hear of anything that could be said FOR it! Why, the whole bloody place is the most unspeakable matriarchy in the whole history of civilization! Look at yourself, and the way your wife and her strumpet of a mother push you through the hoop! As far as I can see, American men have been totally emasculated! They're like slaves! They die like flies from coronary thrombosis, while their women sit under hairdryers, eating chocolates and arranging for every second Tuesday to be some sort of Mother's Day! And this positively infantile preoccupation with bosoms! In all my time in this wretched, godforsaken country, the one thing that has appalled me most of all is this preposterous preoccupation with bosoms. Don't you realize they have become the dominant theme in American culture: in literature, advertising and all fields of entertainment and everything! I'll wager you anything you like that if American women stopped wearing brassieres, your whole national economy would collapse overnight!

*** [[NiceJobFixingItVillain Ironically enough]], this is the conversation that makes Bruce go out into the world, ultimately finding the League of Shadows and becoming Batman. When he returns, he makes sure to give Falcone a lesson on what it's like to be on the ''receiving'' end of the power of fear he gloats about.

***Except no, because that chaotic tug of war between plenty and starvation IS what equilibrium means in this context.

** One level on which he is wrong is that no animal reaches an equilibrium. There's something called the Logistic Equation, and it basically describes the cycle of animals over-reproducing, overeating, starving, dying, and then seeing their population go back up when the food source or other resource returns. Nature doesn't do equilibrium. It does chaotic tugs of war between over-consumption and starvation. It's not merely in our nature to over-consume, when given the chance, it's in nearly every creature's nature. our intelligence just means we can screw up things in a way other creatures are too dumb to.
** It's also ironic since by the second movie [[spoiler: he's become a virus himself]]

* ''Film/{{Always}}'': Al gives one to his class after watching them drop fire retardant too soon, or too late, or right on top of him. He tries to drive home just how hostile a forest fire is to airplanes and how they'll need to be able to hit much better than a small target fire on a clear day come fire season.

* In ''Film/CKDezerterzy'', Captain Wagner chews out [[TheNeidermeyer Oberleutnant von Nogay]] for his cruel, glory-hounding ways:
--> '''Cpt. Wagner:''' There are no words in the vocabulary of a cultured man that could be used to describe your actions disgustingly enough. (...) You are not fit for even a court of cannibals, you bushman. You are nothing but a pitiful worm, called a human only by mistake, mister oberleutnant von Nogay. Get out of here, because I'm sick of looking at you, you bastard.
