  • In the Season One episode "Meet the New Boss", Hood is having dinner with the Hopewells. Max asks if he can see Hood's gun, to which Hood casually replies "Sure" and reaches for it. His smirk towards Ana implies that he wouldn't have actually done it, but it's hilarious nontheless.
  • Most of Job's dialogue can count as this. Although his encounter with a herd of cows is a stand out:
    "Fuck you. Fuck each and every one of you."

  • Season 2.9, an injured Job lampshades the sheer amount of head trauma Hood has experienced over the course of the series.
    "It’s just a concussion, man. You get them every day. The inside of your head must look like a Jackson Pollock."
  • Season 2 finale, after pulling a mother of all Big Damn Heroes moments together with Job to save Hood and Ana from Rabbit's men, Fat Au gives what can only be called a sane person's opinion on Hood:
    "Seven guys with machine guns and you're going to stab them..? You really are fucked in the head."
  • Deva and some of her friends decide to break into a store at night and are quickly caught by Lucas. He sends her friends home and then he expertly points out all their mistakes like not noticing the security system or not realizing that all the money would be in the safe and the few dollars in the cash register were just Schmuck Bait that triggered another alarm when removed. Lucas figures that a standard "stealing is wrong" speech is not gonna work on a rebellious teenager so instead he appeals to her pride by pointing out that she is just being a stupid criminal.

  • While fighting his way through Longshadow's casino to save Rebecca, Hood has an especially gruelling encounter with two security guards. After beating them, he doubles over, gasping for air... and a third guard comes out of nowhere. Hood's pained look and an exasperated "Seriously?" are just icing.
  • When the Banshee PD are about to raid a strip club owned by Proctor, Brock's precise description of the club's interior does not go unnoticed.
    Siobhan: "You seem to know the layout pretty well."
    Brock: "Don't judge."

How well does it match the trope?
