Playing With / HA HA HA No

Basic Trope: A character pretends to laugh along with the others, then abruptly tells them to shut up.
  • Straight:
    • Bob asks his boss Alice for a pay raise. She laughs, then suddenly stops smiling and says seriously "No!"
    • Bob says to Alice, "Are you angry with me?" Alice laughs, then abruptly stops and says seriously "Yes I am!"
    • Bob tells a joke, to which Alice pretends to laugh, and then stops smiling and says "No."
  • Exaggerated: Alice laughs with Bob, then stops smiling, pulls out a gun and shoots him.
  • Downplayed:
    • Alice laughs with Bob, then says "Actually, it isn't really that funny."
    • Bob makes an audacious suggestion Alice legitimately thinks is funny; she laughs, then admits that she can't allow it despite liking it.
  • Justified:
    • Bob's request was an audacious and silly one.
    • Alice was laughing because she was tickled or finished reading a joke or watching something funny right after Bob made his request.
  • Inverted:
    • We expect Alice to react to Bob with anger, or at least a refusal to entertain what he said. She pretends to do this for a moment, and then suddenly starts laughing or says "Yes!".
    • Bob poses a request or question that Alice deems he should not even have to ask her. She makes her point by sarcastically pretending to decline or refuse.
    • Bob asks his boss Alice for a pay raise. She immediately yells, "No!" and starts laughing.
  • Subverted: Alice begins laughing with Bob. Because of the nature of what he said, or Alice's character, we expect her to stop laughing and say "No!" but she doesn't.
  • Double Subverted: ...The "No!" comes after all, just later than we expected.
  • Parodied: Alice doesn't stop laughing when she says "No!"
  • Zig Zagged: Hahahahaha no... HAHAHAHAHA YES! HAHAHAHA but seriously, no.
  • Averted: Alice does not laugh, but gives a serious answer without using sarcasm.
  • Enforced: "We want a minor version of a Hope Spot, like a simple 'unexpected no'.
  • Lampshaded: "Why does Alice laugh before shooting my ideas down?"
  • Invoked: ???
  • Exploited: Bob films Alice's reactions to various ideas he has, then takes the footage out of context.
  • Defied: Alice dislikes getting people's hopes up and gives all answers straight.
  • Discussed: "If I ask Alice for a raise, she'll just laugh and then say no".
  • Conversed: ???

Hahahahahahahahaha... Get back to where you came from!
