** In ''[[Machinima/RedVsBlueTheRecollection Red vs. Blue: Reconstruction]]'', Agent Washington repeatedly uses this phrase or some variant of it to convince the Red and Blue teams to join his fight against the Meta, so much so that it's parodied in the first {{WebVideo/Rooster Teeth Short|s}}, where a fake recording session of Washington's voice actor Shannon [=McCormick=] shows him saying this, along with several other satirical versions of Wash's frequent statements. None of them would consider Wash a "friend", though - they only join him because they each hope to get something for themselves out of the deal (except for Caboose, who always seems happy to help anyone - [[PlayerKilling even if they]] [[UnwantedAssistance don't want him to]]). In fact, Wash tries everything from pulling rank to outright bribery (though notably not asking nicely) to get the teams to cooperate.

* In ''Film/{{Maleficent}}'', Diaval is frustrated that the title character doesn't invoke this trope, and instead tries to send him away when she needs him most, as she's knowingly walking into a trap. He imitates her voice and says "I can't do this without you, Diaval." Hilarious and heartwarming at the same time.
