And baby's gonna harm his arm
By tearing it off his dad
Baby's building a tower into space
Space is where he's gonna find his dad."
Finn, Adventure Time

Bruce Banner: Maybe once you were my father. But you're not now and you never will be.
David Banner: Is that so? Well, I got news for you. I didn't come here to see you. I came here to see my son. My real son. The one inside of you. You're nothing but a superficial shell...a husk of flimsy consciousness...ready to be torn off at a moment's notice.

Wesley Wyndam-Price: You never had any use for me as a child, and you can't bear the thought of me as an adult. Tell me, father, what is it that galls you so, that I was never as good at the job as you? Or that I just might be better?
Roger Wyndam-Price: Oh, yes, this is Los Angeles. We have to talk about our feelings. Then maybe we'll hug.
Wesley: It's doubtful.
Angel, "Lineage"

"You are an ill-made, spiteful little creature full of envy, lust, and low cunning. Men's laws give you the right to bear my name and display my colors since I cannot prove that you are not mine. And to teach me humility, the gods have condemned me to watch you waddle about wearing that proud lion that was my father's sigil and his father's before him. But neither gods nor men will ever compel me to let you turn Casterly Rock into your whorehouse. Go, now. Speak no more of your rights to Casterly Rock. Go!"
Tywin Lannister speaking to Tyrion, Game of Thrones, "Valar Dohaeri"

Bo Crowder: We was never as close as we should have been, but how did it ever come to this?

"Ah, my son, and so it is come to this. Sad, sad day for a fond father, who bestowed upon an ingrate son mighty powers to be wasted. A son who would not honour his father's ordinances, and is therefore fallen in the world. Wake up, Thibor, and let that also which is in you waken, for I know you are not dead."
His eyes opened a crack as my words sank in, then gaped wide in sudden understanding. I threw back my cowl so that he might see me, and smiled in a manner he must surely remember. He marked me and gave a great start. Then he marked his whereabouts - and screamed! How he screamed!
I threw earth down upon him.
Faethor Ferenczy, Necroscope II: Wamphyri

Real Life

Chris: As much as Ive criticized Smallville for being a slight to the character of Superman being that Smallvilles Clark is wishy-washy and refuses to Superman up this episode made me think its just as much a slight to Lexs character. The real villain would seem to be Lionel.
David: I presume Lex was trying to not be a total douchebag and ended up becoming one anyway. But honestly, Lionel treats his family like Darkseid treats his minions.
