* When Zainab comes to beg Phil for money and ends up insulting him, he then turns the tide by insulting her. When her responds is to smack him one across the face, Phil just blocks her arm and continues to insult her until she is forced to retreat.
* Zainab herself qualifies after being pushed too far by DomesticAbuser Yusef, first [[VillainousBreakdown reducing him to sobbing wreck]] with a merciless TheReasonYouSuckSpeech, when he later tries to torch Masood in return and ''gloats cruelly about it'' she lies that [[PapaWolf his daughter]] [[OhCrap is in the burning building]], luring him to a very KarmicDeath.
-->'''Zainab''': Masood has Kamil! You've lost, you miserable, pathetic man. And it makes me laugh that now you must kneel in the Mosque and beg Allah for forgiveness! You are a sick, evil, deranged man, [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking I HATE YOU!]]

* Back in 2000 to 2002 there was "Little Mo" Mitchell who was repeatedly abused by her then-husband Trevor. Any time she stood up to him was brilliant because she was clearly scared out of her mind. The most famous one is when she snapped in the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oNp2lAmVtz0 2001 New Year's Eve episode]] and smashed him across the face with an iron.
** When he eventually tries to get her back [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_x2WnOIKlT4 in the 2002 Hallowe'en episode]], where she told him she wouldn't take it any more.

* For all he did to Ben, you have to credit Phil's RoaringRampageOfRevenge when he finds out his fiancee Stella had been abusing him. When he doesn't get the satisfaction of wrapping his hands around her neck when she threatens to jump off a building, he goes back to TranquilFury mode and hits her with a TheReasonYouSuckSpeech, [[DrivenToSuicide which leads her to just do it anyway]].
* A darker one, but when Carl tries to abuse Ronnie physically (even going on sexually) in the garage and foolishly thinks Ronnie is petrified after all the abuse of her past, she snaps and slams the car door down on Carl's neck when he leans toward it screaming "BASTARD!", killing him outright and ending his spree of terror in the square.
