Suddenly SHOUTING!

Go To

"Do not let my calm demeanor fool you, RANGER!"
Marshal Stacker Pentecost, Pacific Rim

Two characters are carrying on a conversation. Alice says something. Bob responds in his regular voice, but then SUDDENLY, HE'S SHOUTING!

Typically happens for one of three reasons:

  • Anger: Something Alice said just really infuriates Bob, or perhaps simply made an already bad mood worse. Often this is preceded by other visual cues of anger, such as a twitching eye, giving the impression that despite his feelings Bob is still trying to maintain some sense of composure before finally giving in and letting loose with an impassioned tirade.
  • Advertisement:
  • Surprise / Fear: Bob is carrying on as normal, when suddenly a cold, dead hand settles on his shoulder, or someone sets off an explosive in his presence, or something else happens that he just didn't or couldn't expect. Often accompanied by an upward shift in pitch.
  • Drama: Bob is naturally a Large Ham and wants you to know that what he is revealing is quite important, no matter how mundane it may actually be. This is a technique actually used by army trainers when scolding trainees, to keep them on their toes and to vary the tempo of the berating.

Compare Careful with That Axe and Last Note Nightmare, which apply a similar sort of logic to music. Sometimes overlaps with Punctuated! For! Emphasis!, Bait-and-Switch Comment, or HA HA HA—No. Not to be confused with Suddenly Susan or the song "Suddenly Seymour".

    • First when he pretends to be a radio host while Sulley is sleeping in bed (Meta note: The producers had wanted something to lead up to the morning workout montage, so they let Billy Crystal cook up something. He delivered this gem):

    Sherman: This war must be rather inconvenient for you, eh, Mister Holden?
    Holden: I try to make the best of it, sir.
    Sherman: Oh, yes, and you do. Indeed you do. Now I know you're unfamiliar with the way the Navy functions at sea... (pauses to decline a cigarette, and then lights a cigarette for Holden while he's talking) ... but here, we all work together, we all eat together, and just so that you won't upset that system, I'm afraid you'll have to do it our way. Now YOU'VE GOT EXACTLY THREE MINUTES TO GET OFF YOUR FAT MATTRESS, GET DRESSED, AND REPORT TO MISTER WATSON!

  • The basic shtick of Laverne Hooks from the Police Academy series. She's normally a soft-soften (some would say meek) woman, but cross her Rage Breaking Point and you suddenly learn she's Cute, but Cacophonic. A good example from the beginning of Police Academy 3 when she's trying to address the new recruits on the bus:
    Hooks: Please, sit down. Sit down. Please, um um um...
    (Recruits ignore her and continue to chatter.)
    (Everyone instantly complies.)

Jaime Escalante, the teacher of these students, goes to visit the two representatives of the ETS, and things are polite at first, but then grows into a standoff, and Escalante accuses them of questioning the results of the test only because the students are Latino-American, which sets Ramirez, one of the representatives, off:
    Ramirez: No one has the right to accuse me of racism. NO ONE HAS THE RIGHT TO ACCUSE ME OF RACISM!

Hope you ENJOY IT!!!

  • The Catcher in the Rye: Holden is a loud boy who is prone to screaming, even if he doesn't intend to. His Sanity Slippage also leads him to scream a lot.
  • In The Divine Comedy, the voices floating through Purgatory's second terrace are at first quiet and soothing, but at a certain point, the voices turn loud as thunder and start following one after another. The difference in volume is a sign that the first voices speak of love to be strived for while the later voices recite examples of envy and hatred to be rejected.
  • Harry Potter:
    • Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire: Fake Moody does this whenever he says "CONSTANT VIGILANCE!"
    • Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix: The infamous scene in Grimmauld Place where Harry starts shouting at Ron and Hermione, rendered as a full page of dialogue in block capitals. It's even a meta example: in the American version, the shouting starts at the top of the page, which means that readers, after getting through a rather sedate conversation, are suddenly assaulted by an eye-searing passage when they turn the page.
  • Journey to Chaos: One moment Retis soft-spoken and polite, and then the next "OPEN THE DOOR YOU OLD MUMMY!"
  • In the Revenge of the Sith novelization, Palpatine is normally quite calm. It's a part of his manipulation of Anakin Skywalker that he seems to be breaking down over what he claims is a conspiracy against him.
    "Here—" The Chancellor rummaged around within his desk for a moment, then brought forth a document reader. "Do you know what this is?"
    Anakin recognized the seal Padmé had placed on it. "Yes, sir—that's the Petition of the Two Thousand—"

    Live-ACTION TV! 
  • In Battlestar Galactica (2003):
    • The episode arc introducing the Battlestar Pegasus, Colonel Fisk scolds some fighter bay pit crewmembers and some marines that were abusing Tyrol and Helo in the brig.

      "Harm, I've been wondering, just for my own curiosity, what's it take to get you to SHUT THE HELL UP?"
    • Willow's werewolf boyfriend Oz has only a singular display of anger throughout the three eventful seasons we see him. It wasn't when everyone else was freaking out at Buffy for skipping town at the end of Season 2, or even after witnessing Willow and Xander making out in the warehouse basement Spike locked them in. In the Season 4 episode "Wild at Heart", Willow is in tears over seeing Oz with another woman, fellow werewolf Veruca, in his cage after one of the nights where he transforms. Totally naked. While Oz explains that he needed to find a way to cage her up, given that she doesn't care about who she kills while in beast form, it doesn't really help his case much, especially given that Veruca did, in a way, succeed in tempting the beast in him. When Oz tells her to leave so he can explain the situation, Veruca feels the need to keep talking, prompting one incredibly loud "NOW" from Oz the likes of which have never been seen (or heard, rather). Even given her dangerously high snark levels, she apparently leaves so quickly that they didn't even need another shot of her to show it.
    • Played seriously in "The Gift". Giles is trying to get Buffy to acknowledge that killing her little sister Dawn may be necessary to save not only the world, but all of reality.
      Buffy: I don't wanna hear it. (turns away)
      Giles: (gently) I understand that—
      Buffy: (whirls back) No! No, you don't understand. We are not talking about this.
      Giles: (jumping up from the table) YES, WE BLOODY WELL ARE!
  • In El Chavo del ocho, sometimes when Quico gets angered at something, he starts talking normally, gradually raising his voice until he says the last words shouting at the top of his lungs (often directly in the ear of his listener).

    • Obsessing about his gold card, and on the subject of his honeymoon. "I'm there... I'm in paradise. And I'm paying for the whole shebang with my gold card, which was gladly accepted, and paid for, by a man in a flowered sarong!"
    • Trying to reassure a morose minister. "We're both in the business of helping people. DON'T MAKE ME HIT YOU!"
    • Lilith has been known to do it herself. Since Lilith's usually The Stoic, it's like a volcano going off.
      Lilith: I'll give you "freedom" alright, (grabbing a bowl and preparing to throw it) freedom from your teeth!
      Frasier: NO, Lilith! Not the royal Dalton!
  • Happens quite a lot in Chernobyl, particularly as the supervisors and power plant managers feign ignorance to the true calamity of the situation.
    Sitnikov: I walked around the exterior of Building 4. I think there's graphite on the ground, in the rubble.
    Dyatlov: You didn't see graphite.
    Sitnikov: I did.
    Dyatlov: You didn't. You DIDN'T!!! Because it's NOT THERE!
  • Cracker. A different take on this trope appears in "Men Should Weep". Fitz is complaining about his son's layabout ways.
    "You know Mark, you appear to be a symbol of the Lost Generation. Yes, that could well be the case. The crisis of Western capitalism has deprived you of work, motivation and the will to succeed but personally Mark, personally (cuts to someone listening outside the house to the faint voice of Fitz shouting inside) I think you're a bone-idle git!

    • "The Parting of the Ways": Nine, after being told to shut up by the Daleks.
      The Doctor: I'm the Doctor, and if there's one thing I can do, it's talk. I've got five billion languages and you haven't got one way of stopping me. So if anybody's going to shut up, [spins round] IT'S YOU! [two Daleks jerk back in fear] Okeydoke. Where were we?
    • "Daleks in Manhattan": Diagoras, in the line that cements him as a Bad Boss:

      The Doctor: We're the only two left... I've no-one else... REGENERATE!!
    • Eleven does it when he gets particularly emotional.
      • "The Beast Below":
        "Nobody talk to me. Nobody HUMAN HAS ANYTHING TO SAY TO ME TODAY!"
      • From "A Good Man Goes to War":
        The Doctor: I want you to tell your men to run away. […] Those words, "Run Away", I want you to be famous for those exact words. I want people to call you "Colonel Runaway". I want children laughing outside your door because they've found the house of Colonel Runaway, and when people come to you, and ask if trying to get to ME through THE PEOPLE I LOVE... is in any way a good idea... I want you to tell them your name.
    • "Spyfall": Near the end of part 1, the Master briefly breaks into this in a mixture of satisfaction and irritation when the Doctor attempts to sonic the bomb he's set on Barton's plane:
      "Did you really think I wouldn't make that sonic-proof, Doctor?! Come on!"
  • Drop the Dead Donkey. Henry Davenport gets drunk at his award ceremony and has an In Vino Veritas moment.
    "I remember the days when the television industry was run by giants. Whereas now it is run...BY PYGMIES! (pointing) LIKE HIM! AND HIM!"
  • Father Ted: This is how Mrs. Doyle convinces Henry Sellers (who for some reason doesn't mention that he's a recovering alcoholic) to have a sherry. She does her usual nagging-but-cheerful "Go on, go on, go on" about a dozen times before concluding "GO ON!" in a very threatening tone.

    Mal: While this is touching, Yosaffbridge, I really- DROP IT, NOW!

      Wash: I'm confused.
      Saffron: You're asking yourself, if I've got the security codes, why don't I go in, grab it for myself.
      Wash: No, actually, I was wondering... WHAT'S SHE DOING ON THE SHIP?! We're in space! How did she get here?
  • The Flash (2014): Dr. Harrison Wells, the Team Dad of S.T.A.R. Labs, is usually quite soft-spoken, but has a tendency to suddenly switch straight to shouting when angry at people (usually Barry).
  • On Frasier, Frasier Crane is the master of this trope:
    Frasier: This morning you said you two met on a double date.
    Roz: Oh that's right, we did meet on a double date!
    • Another brilliant example, semi-Subverted in that he’d got some shouting in beforehand:
    Frasier: (having been trying to sleep unsuccessfully, this latest rude awakening courtesy of Niles’s new starter’s pistol) WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT?! WAS THAT A GUNSHOT?
    Niles: (playing off the incident of his gun going off) Hello, Frasier. Just getting up?
    Marty: Niles bought a starter’s pistol.
    Niles: And there’s no need to get snippy. Accidents happen.
    Frasier: Oh I’m sorry, was I snippy? I didn’t realise it was too much to ask that there not be GUNPLAY IN MY LIVING ROOM!!!
  • Freaky, in "Braces":
    Nathan: How about I give you five bucks, and you let me get to class?
  • The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air: Phil did this several times with both Carlton and Will, usually after one of their schemes went badly awry. One classic example is the Season 2 episode "Striptease For Two" (where Will and Carlton sell Vivian's heirloom bracelet to buy stock ... for a company that, later that day, goes bankrupt). Made to confess, Phil at first collapses into uncontrollable laughter, and so do Will and Carlton ... only Phil has gotten them to lower their guard, fulfilling the trope's Surprise/Fear category when, without warning, he screams at the top of his lungs, "DO I LOOK LIKE A WHITE GUY NAMED WARD???!!!???" When Will and Carlton try to apologize, an outraged Phil snaps back, "Now you get that bracelet back, and for the next six weeks, I don't want to hear you breathe ... OR I'M CALLING THE FEDS MYSELF!!!"

The exchange has to be read:
    Wellesley: [calmly] ...Major Hogan reports a number of losses, Sir Henry. He says you first lost your head, and, instead of destroying the bridge, you marched over it. He says you then lost your nerve and ran from a small French patrol. He says you lost ten men, a major and two sergeants. He says you lost your sense of honour and destroyed the bridge, cutting off a rescue party led by Lieutenant Sharpe. Major Hogan leaves the worst to the last: He says you lost the King's Colours.
    Simmerson: The fault was not mine sir. Major Lennox must answer-
    Wellesley: [roaring] Major Lennox answered with his LIFE sir! As you should have done if you had any sense of honor! You shamed us sir! You disgraced us sir! You will answer. By God you will answer! The South Essex is stood down in name. If I wipe the name I may wipe the shame. I am making you a battalion of detachments, you will fetch and carry. The Light Company put up a fight, so I will let it stand under a new captain.
    Simmerson: To be commanded by the newly gazetted Captain Gibbons, sir?
    Wellesley: To be commanded by the newly gazetted Captain Sharpe, sir.

  • The Thick of It features quite a few examples from both Malcolm and Jamie; arguably one of the most spectacular is the dressing-down of Hugh Abbot outside the goldfish bowl. Because there's a journalist in said conference room, Malcolm is trying to speak as quietly as possible so nothing ends up on the record, but he can't quite stop his anger at Hugh from boiling over; as such, half the conversation is conducted in deathly-quiet murmuring rendered almost inaudible by the conference room windows, and the other half, well...
    They're running about your fucking flat, I fucking told you about that. Why the fuck did you not tell me about it YOU STUPID CUNT! How am I supposed to do my job if I don't know WHAT THE FUCK IS GOING ON?! YOU'RE A FUCKING PRICK! AN ABSOLUTE CUNT, DO YOU UNDERSTAND THAT?

  • Archer features a good example of this in season 5, in which the eponymous secret agent's antics briefly overwhelm Lana's temper — partly due to the fact that Archer doesn't know what "anonymous sex" actually means, but mostly due to him pulling a Too Dumb to Live move.
    Lana: B) is "Hey, shut up," because I want to talk to you about that thing where you said you were cleaning up your act.
    Archer: Uh, which I'm actually pretty serious about, by the way, but right now I want to talk about this other thing where I just banged Calderon's wife.

  • King K.Rool of Donkey Kong Country, like all Large Ham villains, is prone to this;

      Amethyst: Hey there, Steven! Why you standing there all sad like that?!
    • Done to terrifying effect in "Change Your Mind" when Steven is separated from his gem by White Diamond, expecting it to return Pink Diamond to her original self. Instead it results in an eerily emotionless Steven doppelgänger, and when White Diamond demands to know where Pink Diamond is, he just says "She's gone". When she doesn't believe him, he repeats himself, but suddenly screams loud enough to split White Diamond's throne room in half and leave a crater.
