* In ''Theatre/TheBookOfMormon'', Elder Price has a "Spooky Mormon Hell Dream" after walking out on Elder Cunningham. He gets tormented by visions of {{Satan}}, his minions and a few historical figures whose heinous offenses are compared with his breaking Rule 72, but what really burns is the part where {{Jesus}} calls him a dick.

* Most of the reactions to Hamilton's affair in ''Theatre/Hamilton'' fall under this. In ''We Know'', Hamilton's explanation of why Jefferson, Madison and Burr think he is embezzling government money (namely, to pay blackmail to the husband of the woman he has cheated with) is met with a moment of stunned silence, followed by a "My God..." from Jefferson. Angelica, meanwhile, [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech rips into him]] in ''The Reynolds Pamphlet''. This is even longer in the cut song ''Congratulations'', where she claims that he's "invented a new kind of stupid". In both songs, she says that despite everything they've had together, she's siding with Eliza, and tells him, "God, I hope you're satisfied", echoing their earlier words that the both of them will never be satisfied.

* In ''Theatre/Hamilton'', Aaron Burr irritates Alexander Hamilton in "The Election of 1800", when Hamilton observes that Burr's open campaigning is novel, Burr says, "I'm chasing what I wanted. You know what? I learned that from you." In real life Hamilton's endorsement of Jefferson happened for different reasons, but in the musical, that jibe from Burr is directly related to Hamilton's endorsement.

* In ''Theatre/MissSaigon'', John blasts Chris and his wife Ellen for their decision to leave his son behind in Bangkok, assuring themselves that everything will be fine because of the financial support that they will send. Ignoring the fact that the child will face considerable prejudice because of his mixed race--and already has, given that his mother's cousin ''tried to kill him''--and heavily implying that the real reason behind their decision is to maintain their comfortable life in America without a permanent reminder of the fact that Chris had a WartimeRomance before meeting his wife.

* Fairy tale conglomeration/parody ''IntoTheWoods'' is -MADE- of this trope. The entire first act highlights the amorality of various fairy tale favorites in their quests to find 'happily ever after', with a character occasionally calling another out on it. It all comes to a head in the second act, which is dedicated entirely to the various characters dealing with the ramifications of their cutthroat methods. The song 'Your Fault' is a half example of this, tempered from a true 'what the hell' by the fact that the characters are simply scrambling to keep the blame off themselves, which ends in the unanimous decision to blame the Witch. Her response is of course a verbal spanking of epic proportions in 'The Last Midnight' for, aside from their amorality to begin with, wasting time finding blame when they should instead be dealing with the damn problem.

* In ''Theatre/PokemonLive'', there's a comical version. Brock gets the group lost when he chucks away the map to Viridian City to deliberately talk to a pretty girl and ask for directions. Needless to say, Misty is not happy.
