When a character, [[SarcasmMode either feigning genuine laughter or being obviously sarcastic]], pretends to [[ContagiousLaughter laugh along with other characters]], or encourages/threatens them to do so, then abruptly tells them to [[BigShutUp shut up]], in [[LittleNo one way]] or [[YouHaveFailedMe another]]. The rejection can be a quiet aside, a SuddenlyShouting tirade, or anything in between. Sometimes, this is in concert with a LaughWithMe moment.

[[InvertedTrope Contrast]] TensionCuttingLaughter. The trope also applies to situations in which somebody finds something that somebody else is saying ActuallyPrettyFunny, but this amusement isn't changing anybody's mind. The non-laughing version is NoJustNoReaction. Compare LastNoteNightmare.

'''Woody''': Ah-hah, ah-ha-hah, ''(yanks his hat off Bruce's head)'' gimme that.
** Later when Woody is trying to convince the othre toys to help him get back to Andy's room, claiming Buzz is still alive and asks him for backup.

* There's a very sinister example in ''Film/TheLivesOfOthers'', which is set in communist East Germany.

[[spoiler:And then he says he was just kidding, tells an even more anti-government joke, and leaves the stunned jokester be]].

* In ''Film/SpiderMan2'', [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ztVMib1T4T4 there's a scene]] in which J. Jonah Jameson is laughing uproariously in response to Peter Parker asking to be paid in advance before asking, "You serious?"
%%* Used in ''Film/{{The Flintstones}}''.
* ''Film/BillyMadison''. The title character delivers a pretty great variation:
-->'''Carl''': ...I see you got a little sun today.\\

'''Eric Gordon''': Did you fall asleep or did you pass out?\\
'''Billy''': Hahahahaha '''SHUT UP'''!

* In ''Film/TheFlintstonesInVivaRockVegas'', Fred telling Chip "I knew you were a good guy" is met with one of these.
* In ''Film/BatmanReturns'', when Max Shreck announces that the Penguin is running for mayor (not having gotten the Penguin's approval yet) a campaign aide makes fun of the Penguin's appearance, saying, "There must not be a lot of reflective surfaces down there in the sewers." (He meant mirrors, obviously.) Everyone laughs, including the Penguin, then the Penguin says, jovially, "Still, could be worse! My nose could be gushing blood!" Everyone laughs again... And then the Penguin bites the guy on the nose.

* In ''Film/BlackPanther2018'', M'Baku turns down a request for help like this, characteristic of a leader with a playful side and a keen sense of responsibility for his people. [[spoiler:Ultimately, he [[ChangedMyMindKid changes his mind]].]]
-->'''[[spoiler:T'Challa]]:''' ...I could use an army as well.\\
'''M'Baku:''' I bet you could. ''[Chuckles]'' But no. ''[{{Beat}}]'' I will give no Jabari lives towards your cause.

* ''Literature/AChristmasCarol'' inverts this trope. A reformed Scrooge pretends to direct his anger at his assistant for being late, then abruptly starts laughing and saying "Merry Christmas!"

[[folder:Live Action TV]]
* In "Last Laugh," a ''Series/{{MASH}}'' episode, Hawkeye and BJ arrive (drunk) at the Swamp from a court martial caused by a practical joke. As the "friend" who played the trick is leaving in a jeep they loaned him, they get [[ItMakesSenseInContext a bill]] for his antics for $580. They both laugh for a few seconds before Hawkeye abruptly stops and gets mad. However, it's a subversion, as BJ cheerfully explains that the joker will have to walk back to camp in 30 minutes because "the only thing gassed up in that jeep was us!"
** Another episode has Col. Potter trying to bring a meeting to order when Hawkeye makes a lame joke. Potter, laughing, says "Pierce, sometimes you can be very amusing," and then abruptly stops and says "And then there's now."
* Used [[CatchPhrase many, many times]] by Uncle Phil in ''Series/TheFreshPrinceOfBelAir''. The laugh rises up into a high pitched, somewhat creepy register, but he loses the exclamation on "No", and goes straight into thunderous shouting. For example, in one episode Will and Carlton lose Vivian's bracelet which they pawned for a stock investment that quickly tanked. Phil finds out about this and starts laughing which the boys join in. When asked by Phil what he should do, Will jokingly replies he should "reward them for their honesty... it worked for [[Series/LeaveItToBeaver The Beav]]" causing Phil to laugh louder.
-->'''Phil''': ''hahahahahaha '''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o0MRisuE52I DO I LOOK LIKE A WHITE GUY NAMED WARD?!]]'''''

Duck good-naturedly answers that if he says Nixon, Cooper will think he's sucking up, and if he says Kennedy, he'll want to reform him, so he'll say... Nixon. "That's nice to say," Cooper responds with a smile -- which abruptly disappears... and then abruptly reappears -- and then abruptly disappears again. Duck just stands there looking bewildered until he's led away.
* ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer''. Giles is none too pleased to learn that Angel, who nearly tortured him to death the last time they met (after murdering his girlfriend a few months earlier), is still alive. He's even less pleased when Angel shows up at his doorstep.
--> '''Angel:''' I'm sorry to bother you.
--> '''Giles:''' (Stares, then bursts out laughing). Sorry. That's just rather funny, coming from you. (Chuckles) "Sorry to bother me."
--> '''Angel:''' I need your help.
--> '''Giles:''' And the funny keeps on coming.
* ''Series/{{Angel}}''. When Darla and Drusilla surprise Lilah and Lindsey, the former two [[EvilLaugh laugh evilly]] at Lindsey. Lilah starts to join in, but they snap at her to shut up.
%%* [[Series/ThatsSoRaven Raven]] did this to Chelsea some times.

** In the episode Fugitive Alien
-->"Ha ha ha ha -- '''''you're stuck here!'''''"
** In most episodes, Crow will respond to an obnoxious comment from a movie character with: "Ha ha... SHUT UP!"
* [[RoyalBrat Joffrey]] from ''Series/GameOfThrones'' starts an episode by listening to a minstrel play and sing an incredibly irreverent song that said minstrel wrote about the death of his father and what [[GodSaveUsFromTheQueen a bitch his mother]] is. While the minstrel begs for mercy, Joffrey applauds and laughs... and then [[SadisticChoice asks the minstrel which he would rather have: hands or a tongue]].

--> '''Fabian:''' HAHAHA no.
* ''Creator/MontyPython'' - in a job interview sketch, interviewer John Cleese has applicant Graham Chapman uncomfortable from the start by reacting to everything he says and does with disapproving clucks and note-taking; at one point Graham gives a flippant answer that has them both chuckling until Cleese goes "ha ha ha...no." and takes more notes.
* In the ''Series/DoctorWho'' story "Revenge of the Cybermen", the Doctor is knocked unconscious in a rockfall and Harry attempts to undo the bomb strapped to his back, not knowing that doing so will cause the bomb to go off. Then the Doctor wakes up:
-->'''Doctor''': Harry, were you trying to undo this? \\
'''Harry''': Well, naturally. \\
'''Doctor''': ...Did you make the rocks fall, Harry? \\
'''Harry''': Er, well, I suppose I must have done, yes. \\
'''Doctor''': Ha. Ha ha. Hahahahahaha! Ahahahahahaha[[SuddenlyShouting HARRY SULLIVAN IS AN IMBECILE!]] (''[[NonSequiturThud falls unconscious]]'')
* ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}'': The Soup Nazi laughs along with Elaine's business-disrupting Al Pacino impression, then blows his lid and bans Elaine from his restaurant for a ''year''.

-->'''Judge Judy''': (addressing her bailiff) Did you see the game last night, Burt?\\
