- Hawk Moth: Ladybug has joined the party at last! Bring me the miraculous Befana.La Befana: You didn't say the magic word.Hawk Moth: ...Ahem, please.La Befana: Much better, Hawk Moth.
Context is what is important. We ask for the magic word to small children to teach them how to be polite and considerate. With adults however, then you're just being cheeky.
- In the beginning of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Vernon demands (not asks, demands) Harry pass the frying pan over to Dudley so that he could have more bacon. Harry then responds by saying that they "[forgot] the magic word." Taking this out of context, the Dursleys are in a panic, only for Harry to quickly correct their assumptions.
- In the The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy episode "Sickly Sweet", Billy and Grim place the cursed artifact known as the Mask of the Beast onto Mandy's face. The more monstrous she behaves, the more monstrous she becomes on the outside and the only way to get it off is if she behaves otherwise. One of the things Billy has her do is "say please" when she asks for their help. She practically chokes on her own words to say it, only for Billy to demand that she then says "pretty please with sugar and sprinkles and a marshmallow on top." It goes about as well as you'd expect.
- In the Miraculous Ladybug episode "La Befana", the Monster of the Week Befana has Hawk Moth say "please" in an Actually Pretty Funny moment.
