* '''Straight''': Bob is standing on a ledge about to jump, when Alice sees him and goes over to talk him out of it.
* '''Exaggerated''':
** Alice uses cliched phrases to talk Bob out of killing himself ("You have so much to live for", "It gets better", etc.)
** The Talker is a celebrity who is not a main or supporting character in the work (bonus points if the Suicidal in question is a fan of theirs)

* '''Justified''': Alice has been concerned, and came to check on Bob, only to find him about to kill himself.

** Bob [[BungledSuicide failed to kill himself]]. Bonus points if the reason he failed was because Alice [[CrazyPrepared intentionally sabotaged his suicide as a backup plan in case Bob went ahead anyway]].
** Alice turns out to be quicker than Bob, and stops him long enough to actually talk him down.
* '''Parodied''':
** Bob is in no actual danger of dying (is only a short distance from the ground if about to jump, using children's medicine to overdose on, etc.), but Alice attempts to talk him out of it with as much panic as if he would die if he went through with what he is about to do.
** Bob is not actually suicidal and his actions make sense in context, but Alice sees him, thinks he's going to kill himself, and attempts to talk him out of it.
