Playing With / Won't Take "Yes" for an Answer

Basic Trope: A character asks a question of another and, not expecting "yes" as an answer, launches into a spiel to convince them to change their mind.
  • Straight:
    Son: "Hey, dad, can I go see Alice and The Tropers downtown? I can take the train."
    Dad: "Absolutely, son. Have a good time!"
    Son: "But, but I'm old enough, and I've saved up money, and I won't get lost, and...wait, what?"
  • Exaggerated: As above, but the son asks several more times before accepting "yes".
  • Downplayed:
    Son: "Hey, dad, can I go see Alice and The Tropers downtown? I can take the train."
    Dad: "Absolutely, son. Have a good time!"
    Son: "But, but, I'm...oh, ok. Thanks!"
  • Justified: The son is expecting the answer "no", so he has his rebuttal prepared in advance.
  • Inverted:
    Son: "Hey, dad, can I go see Alice and The Tropers downtown? I can take the train."
    Dad: "Absolutely not. You're too young."
    Son: "Oh, ok, cool! I'll be back by ten, don't wait up, and...wait, what?"
    —> Another Possibility for an Inversion of the usual way it's done;
    Dad: "Son, why don't you go see Alice and the Tropers downtown. You can take the train."
    Son: "Yeah, that's a good idea!"
    Dad: "Now son you really need to get out mo... Oh you said yeah, never mind."
  • Subverted:
    Son: "Hey, dad, could I go downtown so I can see Alice and The Tropers?"
    Dad: "Sure! I'll drive you there!"
    Son: "But-! ... But I need to go to the loo first."
  • Double Subverted:
    Son: (beat) "Wait, did you say no? But, but, I'm old enough, and I won't get lost, and I've saved up money, and..."
  • Parodied: The son keeps asking the dad's permission (and the dad keeps giving it) long after the event, and even when the men are well into old age.
  • Zig Zagged: ???
  • Averted:
    Son: "Hey, dad, can I see Alice and The Tropers downtown?"
    Dad: "Sure!"
    Son: "Ok, thanks!"
  • Enforced: "This character usually comes with outrageous demands. Let's show the fact that he never gets accepted in a clear way."
  • Lampshaded: "... Son, I think it's time you learned what 'yes' means."
  • Invoked: Permission is given in a very ambiguous manner, in the hopes that the character will launch into a Motive Rant and explain why s/he suddenly wants to do this.
  • Exploited: The character acts like he won't take yes for an answer in the hopes someone will understand that he doesn't want to do this.
  • Defied:
    Son: "Hey, dad, can I go see Alice and The Tropers?"
    Dad: "Sure! And keep in mind, I'm saying yes, so you don't need to argue..."
  • Discussed: "Honey, I think you're being too strict with our son. Look how he reacts whenever you do give him permission to do something."
  • Conversed: "I wonder how many people actually do that."
