** Bob is shocked and wants to do something, but can't.
** Bob is over-dramatic.
* '''Inverted''':

* '''Double Subverted''': Once the distraction is dealt with, Bob is free to shout "No!"
* '''Parodied''':
** Bob's yell of "'''Nooo!'''" is so long, he's obligated to take a deep breath during it before continuing.
** NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO [[TimeSkip ten minutes later]] OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!
** Bob stares blankly for ten seconds before suddenly shouting "Nooo!!!"
** Bob is prompted to scream "'''Nooo!'''" by the [[FelonyMisdemeanor most minor and trivial of problems]].

** The screen splits into ten panes, each of which has Bob screaming '''''"NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!"''''' in unison.

* '''Defied''': Danny punches Bob out if it even ''looks'' like he's going to scream "'''Nooo!'''"

* '''Conversed''': Danny says "Oh my god, that sounded like that one scene from that show I was watching!"
