"Being a parent is wanting to hug and strangle your kid at the same time."
Calvin's Dad, Calvin and Hobbes

Launchpad, you're alive! I'm going to kill you!
Scrooge McDuck, DuckTales (1987), "Hero for Hire"

It was at that moment that what seemed to be an earthquake rippled through the house. Princess Celestia raised an eyebrow and turned her head to see Princess Luna standing in the now destroyed doorway. Her wings were flared out to their full length and a snarl was etched on her face. Celestia returned her sister's expression with a smile. "Oh. Good morning, Lulu."
Celestia walked over to her sister and raised a hoof. "Luna, calm down. I'm perfectly fine."
"Oh, how wonderful for thee!" Luna snarled. "Has thou considered the personal Tartarus We have experienced?!"

"I only hope that you can have this same experience, Vanessa. I hope that one day you realize how it feels to think that your child's life is in danger. You have taken us from levels of frenzy, panic, distress and now that we know you're okay, rage."
Claire Huxtable, The Cosby Show , Night of the Wretched

Be careful, Leon (Levant).
If you do not return safely, I will carry a grudge against you forever.

Dr Liara T'Soni to a romanced Shepard, Mass Effect

"Why? You flew into that thing, what, to come after me? You could have died. Why would you do that? How could you be so stupid?"

"Boo ! You're all right ! I was so worried, I was...Don't you ever run away from me again, young lady !"

"Boys!...I wasn't quick enough. They're gone! (sobs) If only I could hold them in me arms again. I'd...I'd..." (SpongeBob and Patrick float back down safely) "...I'D THROTTLE 'EM!"
Mr. Krabs, Spongebob Squarepants, "Hooky"

Asuka was obviously upset but was trying admirably to keep her turbulent emotions under control. Her first impulse was to run off and thrash wildly in an effort to find her husband. She didn't notice the blood beginning to drip through the patch covering her left eye. She took a deep breath.
Asuka, HERZ, chapter 10

Asuka’s grip on his left hand tightened and she growled, “You leave me hanging like that again, Ikari, and I get to rip your head and arms off.” Her grip relaxed again. “And don’t you dare ever vanish for a month like what happened after that, either. You made me worry, Third. And you’re sworn to watch my back from now on, until I let you go, got it?”
A Crown of Stars, chapter 26

Terror, she was paralyzed in fear, her worn out brain darkened in utter fear; fear of herself, of what she was capable of. In her state of restless hysteria, the abused subconscious of the redhead activated it's most primitive defense mechanism. She attacked.
"You Idiot!!"
Ritsuko seemed to shut up with that. As a matter of fact, the entire room had gone deadly quiet when exposed to her rage, even Shinji, who seemed to have been dying to seconds before, straightened up and gulped.
"What the hell were you thinking, huh?! Do you realize how injured you are?!! And who told you I need to be protected? I could've handled those three asses myself!! Even if…! Even if it was… nice…"
Scar Tissue, chapter 8

She glared at him as she came closer. For a while, she just stood there by his bed; hands on her hips. The unusual silence and her uninterpretable facial impression filled him with dread of what was about to come.
Without any warning, she slapped him.
"That was for making me worry!" she explained angrily.

Shinji: (angrily) What the fuck were you thinking?
Asuka: (dazedly) I… I did what I had to do, just like how you blew yourself up to take out Shamshel.
Shinji: It’s called the ‘Shinji Suicide Special’ for a reason.
Asuka: (grinning) Well they can call it the ‘Soryu Suicide Special’ now.

Jonathan: I'm sorry, Mom.
Joyce: What, you're sorry? You're... you're sorry? That is not good enough, Jonathan.
Jonathan: I know.
Joyce: That's not even close, that's not even in the... in the ballpark.
Jonathan: I wanted to tell you, I just...
Joyce: What if this thing took you too? You risked your life. And Nancy's.
Jonathan: I-I thought I could save Will. I still do.
Joyce: This is not yours to fix alone! Y-You act like you're all alone out there in the world, but you're not! You're not alone!
Jonathan: I know.
Joyce: Goddamn it, Jonathan.
Jonathan: I know.
Joyce: Damn it. (hugs Jonathan)

Hazel: [to Bigwig] I'm angry with you. You're the one rabbit we're not going to be able to do without and you have to go and run a silly risk like that. It wasn't necessary, and it wasn't even clever. What were you up to?
Bigwig: I'm afraid I just lost my head, Hazel. I've been strung up all day, thinking about this business at me really on edge. When I feel like that I have to do know, fight or run a risk. I thought if I could make that fox look a fool, I wouldn't feel so worried about the other thing. What's more, it worked...I feel a lot better now.
Hazel: Playing El-ahrairah. You duffer, you might have thrown your life away for nothing...we all thought you had. Don't try it again, there's a good chap. You know everything's going to depend on you.

Glory: Thank goodness you're [Sunny] alive. Because now I can totally behead you. Starflight, what's our official policy on beheading right now?
Starflight: Our constitution says no beheading Sunny.
Glory: Let's amend that. To I can behead anyone who worries me half to death like this.
Wings of Fire: The Brightest Night

The nerve of you guys! You are such morons! I can't believe this! You guys suck! The rope got cut off... I had no idea what to do... I was so worried... I mean scared stiff, dammit! I hate you both!
Chie Satonaka, Persona 4

Marty: Don't worry. I'm fine, I'm fine. Look at me, I'm fine.
Alex: You're fine? Oh, he's fine. Oh, great. Hey, you hear that? Marty's fine. Oh, that's good to know. 'Cause I was just wondering, uh...HOW COULD YOU DO THIS TO US, MARTY?! I THOUGHT WE WERE YOUR FRIENDS!
Marty: What's the big deal?! I was comin' back in the morning!
Alex: Don't you ever do this again! Do you hear me?!
Gloria: Do you hear him?!

John Marston: What the hell were you thinking, going off on your own? You're just a boy.
Jack: No, I'm not! I can skin an elk, break horses...
John: C'mon, let's get you home. (Jack gets onto John's horse with him) Now hold tight. You all right?
Jack: Yeah, I think so.
John: You're lucky to be alive, you stupid boy. What did I tell you about going off by yourself?
Jack: I go off by myself plenty. You just don't know about it. You're never around.
John: So this is my fault? You disobeyed me.
Jack: I was trying to prove myself.
John: Prove what? By gettin' yourself killed?
Jack: You're always tellin' me I read too many books, that I'm not a real man.
John: I never said that.
Jack: I just thought if I could do something you'd like, maybe you wouldn't go away again.
John: Son, I ain't goin' anywhere. And believe me, neither are you for a real long time. What's your mother going to say?
Jack: I'm sorry, Pa. Please don't be angry.
John: I ain't angry. I'm disappointed. Don't you ever run off on your own like that again.
Jack: Alright, alright. I told you I was sorry.
John: What would have happened if I hadn't come along?
Jack: I don't know. I'd probably be dead.
John: You'd be a pile of bones right now.
Jack: What would you care? I'm just a nuisance to you anyway.
John: That ain't true, Jack. I'd do anythin' for you, you know that.
Jack: I guess there's only room for one hero in this family.
John: Trust me, son, I ain't no hero. I'm just glad you're safe. But going after a grizzly? What were you thinkin'? You've only been hunting twice!
Jack: I'm not a little kid anymore. What were you doing at my age?
John: Bad things. Things nobody should do. But your Ma and me, we didn't have what you have.
Jack: Yeah, yeah, I know. I should be grateful.
John: I'm not askin' you to be grateful. I'm askin' you to do what I say, before you get yourself killed.
Jack: It's always one set of rules for you, and another set for everybody else. You think I don't know what you did back in the old days? I'm not stupid.
Jack: You think I didn't sit up and listen to Dutch and Bill telling all those stories? You think I don't know who you are?
John: It ain't no secret I didn't get these scars fallin' over a church.
Jack: But nobody tells me anythin'. You and Ma pretend like nothin' happened.
John: We just want a better life for you, son. Now rest, we'll have you home soon.
Red Dead Redemption, "Spare The Love, Spoil The Child"

Mufasa: Simba, I am very disappointed in you.
Simba: I'm sorry.
Mufasa: You could've been killed. You deliberately disobeyed me! And what's worse, you put Nala in danger!
Simba: (voice cracking) I was just trying to be brave like you.
Mufasa: (calmer) I'm only brave when I have to be. Simba, being brave doesn't mean you go looking for trouble.
Simba: But you're not scared of anything.
Mufasa: I was today.
Simba: You were?
