There's already an entry under "Well Done, Son!" Guy for this, but would Robert Fischer from Inception also qualify for this trope? The only part of his father's last words that he could make out was "disappointed." In the dream world, this is given a positive spin, where Fischer Sr. wasn't disappointed because Robert had failed to live up to his example, but because he had tried to do so instead of following his own path. Just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing some facet of the trope before adding it to the page.
