* Stephen Colbert was gracious enough to give the ''Late Show'' desk to Jon Stewart on a live episode right after the 2016 Republican National Convention ended. Stewart returned to his ‘’Daily Show’’ roots and gave us nine beautiful minutes of “Green Death”-flavored spitfire against FOX News, particularly Sean Hanni—er, [[ItMakesSenseInContext Lumpy]] (and Republicans in general), condemning them for nominating a man (Donald Drumpf) who represents all the things they hated about President Barack Obama: a lack of experience, general divisiveness, the clear inability to take an insult to his face without losing his temper, authoritarianism, and narcissism (oh, and the need to use a teleprompter to, y’know, READ his speeches).
-->’’’Jon’’’: So let’s just say it for real, here’s where we are: either Lumpy and his friends are lying about being bothered by thin-skinned, authoritarian, less-than-Christian readers-of-prompter being president, or they don’t care as long as it’s ‘’their’’ thin-skinned, prompter, authoritarian-tyrant-narcissist. You just want that person to give you your country back, because you feel you’re this country’s rightful owners. There’s only one problem with that: THIS COUNTRY ISN’T YOURS. You don’t own it. It never was. There is no “real America.” You don’t own it! You don’t own patriotism, you don’t own Christianity, you sure as Hell don’t own respect for the bravery and sacrifice of military, police, and firefighters! Trust me! I saw a lot of people on the Convention floor in Cleveland with their “Blue Lives Matter” rhetoric who either remained silent or actively fought against the 9/11 First Responders’ Bill reauthorization. I see you, and I see your [[DefyingTheCensors bullshit]]!
-->’’’Jon’’’: So I see you. You got a problem with those Americans fighting for their place at the table. You got a problem with them because you feel like the . . . “sub-groups” of Americans are being divisive. Well, if you have a problem with that, take it up with the Founders. “We hold these truths to be self-evident, [[DancingWithMyself that all men are created equal!]]” . . . Those fighting to be included in the ideal of equality are not being divisive; those fighting to keep those people out ‘’are’’, so Lumpy, you and your friends have embraced Donald Drumpf.

* ''Series/{{Frasier}}'': Years later, when Diane appears on Frasier's show putting together a play that romanticizes their failed relationship, she practically rubs Frasier's face in how she left him at the altar, resulting in Frasier delivering a long-withheld rant against her.
--> '''Actor:''' (playing Frasier reacting to being left at the Altar by Diane's character, Mary-Anne) This whole getting left at the altar thing, I don't know what I'm supposed to feel.
--> '''Frasier:''' I may be able to illuminate that for you. What you are feeling is that this woman has reached into your chest, plucked out your heart, and thrown it to her hell hounds for a chew toy! And it's not the last time, either, because that is what this woman is: she is the devil! There's no use running away from her, because no matter how far you go, no matter how many years you let pass, you will never be completely out of reach of those bony fingers. So drink hearty and laugh, because you have just made a pact with Beelzebub, and her name is Mary-Anne! (actors applaud as Frasier storms out)

** Sisko gets a good one on [[SinisterMinister then-Vedek Winn]] in the first-season finale. She's trying to raise a stink about Keiko O'Brien not teaching a religious interpretation of the wormhole, and denounces the Federation as, basically, godless heathens. Sisko responds by giving up the entire station as an example of how Bajorans do not feel that way, then tells her that, for all her hate-mongering, people will soon forget it ever happened and go on with their lives. Winn can't even form a good comeback other than "We'll see." The whole thing turned out to be a BatmanGambit to assassinate a political rival, of course, but Sisko still owned her.

* ''Series/Daredevil2015'': In "World on Fire", Nelson & Murdock have been hired to represent Elena Cardenas, an elderly friend of Sgt. Brett Mahoney's mother who is worried about her and several other tenants being evicted from their building. Foggy and Karen go down to Landman & Zack to meet with her landlord's lawyers...who turns out to be Foggy's ex-girlfriend [[LovableAlphaBitch Marci Stahl]]. Marci tries to condescendingly convince Foggy to drop the matter, to which Foggy responds:
-->'''Foggy Nelson:''' Marci? Convincing ''my'' client to agree to ''your'' terms? That's ''your'' job, and I'm not going to do it for you. See, you think there are only two options: These tenants take their payout and leave, or leave without taking it. But given how long they've put up with Tully's bullshit, I think you're actually afraid that Mrs. Cardenas and her neighbors will find a way to eke by. And short of physically and ''very illegally'' forcing tenants from their rent-controlled homes, Armand Tully loses his condos. Your firm loses Tully. And that's very bad for business. You want me and my client to think that you're doing us a favor, that we have no leverage. When really, we have ''all of it''. So you're gonna see us in court where I will absolutely ''dismantle you'', from the top of your salon blowout to the bottom of your overpriced pumps. ''[Karen grins]''
