* In ''Manga/AzumangaDaioh'', Osaka-san just won't stop saying "saataa andagii!" after she discovers that pastry in Okinawa. Naturally, she gets this reaction.
* In ''Anime/{{K}}'', Shiro says this to Kuroh, who keeps telling Shiro he's going to kill him, because Shiro was framed for a murder - Kuroh ends up giving Shiro the chance to prove his innocence, but until then, he keeps reminding Shiro of his mission. Even when they're [[GoKartingWithBowser sitting down for a meal together]].
--> '''Kuroh''': Enjoy this, Yashiro, for it will be the last bowl of white rice you will ever eat. \\
'''Shiro''': Stop saying things like that!

* Played for drama in ''Fanfic/SpotsOff'', when Marinette is in the middle of a breakdown after her identity as Ladybug is publicly revealed. When Chat Noir shows up, he offers to tell her who he is, so that he can be there for her out of costume:
-->'''Marinette''': You can't reveal your identity just because ''I'' messed up so badly! It's too important!
-->'''Chat''': But I ''want'' to! You don't have to do this alone-
-->'''Marinette''': Why aren't you ''listening'' to me?! It's my mistake, and I have to face the consequences! You can't help me, Chat!
-->'''Chat''': Yes, I can! You just aren't letting me! This isn't your fault! ''Let people help you'', Marinette!
-->'''Marinette''': No! No, I ''can't''!
-->'''Chat''': ''Why''!?
-->'''Marinette''': Because... because... Because it's my fault! I need to take care of this! I have to be the one to take care of this!
-->'''Chat''': ''No'', you don't!
-->'''Marinette''': ''Stop telling me that!'' Stop encouraging me! I'm just... I just... I'm ''stupid'' and I'm ''weak'' and I have to learn to accept the consequences when I mess up. So just ''let me deal with this, Chat''!

'''Mac''': (Irish voice) Evil shenanigans!\\
'''O'Hagen''': I swear to God, I'll pistol whip the next guy that says "shenanigans!"\\

[[folder: Literature ]]

* In ''Literature/{{Animorphs}}'', this is one of the running gags. Ax, the local alien, calls the leader, Jake, "Prince Jake". It almost always ends with:
-->''"And [[DontCallMeSir stop calling me Prince Jake]]."''\\
''"Yes, Prince Jake."''
** Similarly, Ax always refers to the time left in morph as "X of your minutes", to which Marco replies with "They're everyone's minutes".
* In ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'', during the duel between Oberyn Martell and Gregor Clegane, Gregor is reduced to [[BigShutUp screaming at his opponent to shut up]] after Oberyn loudly and repeatedly accuses him of atrocities against his sister Elia and her child.

* In ''Discworld/{{Jingo}}'', Vetinari reacts with an uncharacteristically nonthreatening threat when he gets sick of Vimes' habit of saying "sir?" when he's trying to [[ObfuscatingStupidity play dumb]]:

** Nonetheless, Vimes goes right back to saying it. (There is a distinct lack of trouble.)


[[folder: Live Action TV ]]

* ''Series/WhoseLineIsItAnyway'': The game "Two Line Vocabulary" ''loves'' this.

-->'''Whoopi''': Have you thought it through?!\\

'''Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens''': Would you stop saying that?
* ''Series/{{Angel}}''

-->'''Rose:''' If you say 'live together, die alone' to me, Jack, I'm gonna punch you in the face.
* In Season 3, Episode 5 of ''Series/GavinAndStacey'', Pam and Mick have this conversation about their son Gavin's low sperm count:

'''Pam:''' Why? That's what the problem is! (Sperm!)\\
'''Mick:''' Well I'm his dad, and I don't want to.\\

'''Mick:''' Can we please stop sayin' the word sperm?\\
'''Pam:''' All right... ''essence!'' Whatever!
* An episode of ''Series/{{Frasier}}'' has Frasier prompt this line from Niles after repeatedly yelling "If I were, ''doctor'', you'd never know it!" in response to every accusation Niles makes towards him.
** ''Frasier'', "Give Him the Chair." [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T11Ndww4GGo#t=5m24s]]
-->'''Niles''': You know, Frasier, there is a perfectly sound psychological basis for getting rid of this chair.\\
'''Frasier''': Oh, really? Well, [[SarcasmMode enlighten me, doctor]].\\
'''Niles''': With pleasure. Originally, Dad needed it to bridge the transition from his old apartment to life here with you. But as with all transitional objects - be they a teddy bear, be they a thumb, be they a blankie, be they a chair...\\
'''Frasier''': '''Stop saying "Be they!"'''
* There was a ''Series/TheKidsInTheHall'' sketch where a blue-collar worker got in trouble for saying the word "ascertain" at least once per sentence to the annoyance of his colleages. At the end of the discussion his boss says he's happy to have been able to "delineate this little problem," to which the worker wonderingly responds, "...''Delineate''... Don't worry, sir, you'll never hear that ''other'' word again," indicating this is an ongoing cycle.
* The absurd challenges presenters are set on ''TopGear'', give Jeremy Clarkson a {{catchphrase}} that foreshadows them going [[EpicFail hilariously wrong]]. Sometimes he's called on it:

'''Hammond:''' Don't ''say'' that!
* [[Series/TheBigBangTheory Penny]] asks Sheldon to stop saying "coitus" as it makes her (and everyone else, really) uncomfortable. Predictably, it doesn't stick.
* From ''Series/ShaunMicallefsMadAsHell'':
-->'''Shaun''': (''referring to a blindfolded puppet of Tony Abbott that was seen in a protest march'') Is your point that Mr. Abbott has blinded himself to these climate change facts, or has someone else done it? Ie, who put the blindfold on Mr. Abbott? And if you say "[[LiteralMinded Me and Dirk]]" I will arrange to have you injured.
-->'''Mick''': ...Someone else did it?
-->'''Shaun''': Alright, well presumably whoever controls him.
-->'''Mick''': Yeah, me and Dirk.


[[folder: Video Games ]]

* In the ''VideoGame/MySims'' series, Chaz [=McFreely=] is a JerkAss extremely obsessed with showing off in extreme ways. His extreme obsession figures into his speech, in that he uses a certain adjective and its other forms an extreme amount in an extremely short period of time. In ''[=MySims=] Kingdom'', this prompts Travis to get [[OverlyLongGag extremely]] fed up with it and yell at him to stop saying it.
