* In ''VideoGame/SpaceQuest III'', an android named [[TheTerminator Arnoid the Annihilator]] is sent to hunt down Roger for a whistle he never paid for (despite Roger using a "free whistle" coupon). Apparently, AllCrimesAreEqual, so mail fraud is punishabled by death. After defeating and destroying Arnoid, Roger figures he's free and clear. However, two games later, they sent another robot to finish the job, a gynoid named WD-40. When she first meets Roger, she disables his ship and delivers this line: "Never send a mandroid to do a womandroid's work." However, she turns out to be not much better, as Roger borrows a page out of [[Film/BeverlyHillsCop Axel Foley]]'s book in defeating her (namely, the "banana in the tailpipe" trick). She ends up being reprogrammed to be the ''Eureka''[='=] science officer.

* In ''Punisher Noir'', [[spoiler:the Russian]] is informed of Barracuda and Jigsaw's deaths at the hands of the Punisher. As this is the third assassin who killed the Punisher's father, it's easy to guess who's next. [[spoiler:The Russian, now a woman,]] isn't concerned. "You know what they say -- Never send man to do woman's job."

** From another BugsBunny cartoon, "Water, Water Every Hare", the Evil Scientist needs Bugs' brain for a creation of his own, but Bugs tries to escape, so the Evil Scientist sics the hairy monster Gossamer (here named Rudolph) on him. The rabbit, of course, outwits Gossamer, and when the Evil Scientist finds out, he says the following line below.

* In one episode of ''WesternAnimation/BudgieTheLittleHelicopter'', Budgie is sent to retrieve a family snowed in from a blizzard. Chuck was offended that he didn't get asked to do it, despite being told that he wouldn't fit because the house is surrounded by tall trees. Later on, after not hearing from Budgie after some time, Chuck gets rather smug, telling Lionel that he shouldn't have sent a boy to do a ''man'''s work. Lionel's response is characteristically curt:
--> '''Lionel:''' One more word and I'll send you to do a ''wheelbarrow'''s work!
