This is simply what you think is the (not some of the, '''''the''''') best example of any trope (an objective trope, not subjective, since this already is subjective). The "Crowning Example" if you will.

There could be several reasons you think an example is the best.
* You think it's the best in terms of illustrating the trope.
* You think it's the most well done.
* It's your favorite play in that trope.
* You just really like the source material.

Oh, several things before you list examples:
* Each troper gets one example per trope, no more.
* Don't go "no, this is," or phrases like that. This is about our own personal favorites.
* '''Sign your entries.'''

'Gimme five bees for a quarter,' you'd say. Now where was I... oh yeah. The important thing was that I had an onion tied to my belt, which was the style at the time.

** Robin Williams telling off Matt Damon in the park in GoodWillHunting:
-->''"Thought about what you said to me the other day, about my painting. Stayed up half the night thinking about it. Something occurred to me, I fell into a deep, peaceful sleep, and I haven't thought about you since. You know what occurred to me? You're just a kid. You don't have the faintest idea what you're talking about. You've never been out of Boston. So if I asked you about art, you'd probably give me the skinny on every art book ever written. Michelangelo: you'd know a lot about him -- life's work, political aspirations, him and the Pope, sexual orientation, the whole works, right? I'll bet you can't tell me what it smells like in the Sistene Chapel. You've never actually ''stood'' there and looked up at that beautiful ceiling and ''seen'' that. If I ask you about beautiful women, you'd probably give me a syllabus of your personal favorites. You may even have been laid a few times. But you can't tell me what if feels like to wake up next to a woman and feel ''truly happy''. You're a tough kid. I ask you about war you'd probably, uh, throw Shakespeare at me, right? 'Once more into the breach, dear friends.' But you've never been near one. You've never held your best friend's head in your lap and watched him gasp his last breath looking to you for help. I ask you about love, you'd probably quote me a sonnet. But you've never looked at a woman and been ''totally vulnerable''. Known someone who could level you with her eyes. Feeling like God put an angel on earth just for you, who could rescue you from the depths of hell. And you wouldn't know what it's like to be her angel. To have that love for her be there forever, through anything. Through cancer. And you wouldn't know about sleeping sitting up in a hospital room for two months holding her hand because the doctors could see in your eyes that the terms 'visiting hours' don't apply to you. You don't know about real loss, because that only occurs when you love something more than you love yourself. I doubt you've ever dared to love anybody that much. I look at you, I don't see an intelligent, confident man. I see a cocky, scared shitless kid. But you're a genius, Will. No one denies that. No one could possibly understand the depths of you. But ''you'' presumed to know everything about ''me'' because you saw a painting of mine and you ripped my fucking life apart. You're an orphan, right? Do you think I would know the first thing about how hard your life has been, how you feel, who you are, because ''I've'' read "Oliver Twist"? Does ''that'' encapsulate ''you''? Personally, I don't give a ''shit'' about that because I can't learn anything about you I can't read in some fucking book unless you want to talk about you, who you are. And I'm fascinated. I'm in. But you don't want to do that, do you, sport? You're terrified of what you might say."''

*** Seconded. ~szaleniec1000
** Gilbert Markham of ''Literature/TheTenantOfWildfellHall'' -- Seriously, why do [[Literature/WutheringHeights Heathcliff]] and [[Literature/JaneEyre Edward Rochester]] get the AllGirlsWantBadBoys treatment, and this guy gets villified by critics? Where is the logic?! It's as laughable as it is cruelly ironic. ~ @/{{Lale}}
