"Johnny was always the one in the family we knew was going someplace. Sweet kid, smart kid. Becoming a doctor? This is all he ever wanted, and yet, somehow, you've found a way to beat that out of him, haven't you? Turn him into some kinda cynical guy who seems to despise what he does. Dr. Cox, Johnny is never gonna look up to me. Ever. But he hangs on your every word. So I'm askin'— (rethinks) I'm tellin' you: take that responsibility seriously, stop being such a hardass. Otherwise you're gonna have to answer to me."
Dan, Scrubs, "My Brother, Where Art Thou?"

Michael: You said you're a big brother.
Dean: Yeah.
Michael: You take care of your little brother? You'd do... anything for him?
Dean: [heartfelt] Yeah, I would.

Michael: My brother's sick.
Dean: The little guy?
Michael: [nodding] Pneumonia. He's in the hospital. It's my fault.
Dean: Ah, c'mon, how?
Michael: I should've made sure the window was latched. He wouldn't have gotten pneumonia if the window was latched.
Dean: Listen to me. I can promise you, that this is not your fault. Okay?

" ...if you ever hurt [Vivian], if you ever make her cry... I will find you. And then I will make sure that you find out why the first G in 'Grinning General' might as well stand for 'Gruesome'. Understood?"

Accelerator: I don't understand ya...that fallen lowlife over there and you...why are you covering for a bunch of dolls? They're failed mass production knock offs of you. The one who should feel most annoyed about that in the whole world is you. You dislike seeing something with the same face as you being broken? That's not something to lose your life over. You can't stand the fact that someone else will reach level 6 before you? Or is this atonement for creating the origin of these experiments?
Mikoto: You think that I care about something like "God's Intellect," or that this is something I could atone for? I don't. They are my sisters. It's because these little girls are my sisters. That's all there is to it.

"Get away from my brother!"

Librarian: [Shaking her head] No, no ! I have to stay. A place for every book, every book in it's place.

Neo: [Walking up behind the librarian] She said she doesn't want to go. Leave her alone.

"Because you're my little brother, Goddamnit! And even when I'm fifty and you're forty-five, you're still gonna be my little brother!"
Kyle Broflovski, South Park

"My sister, my responsibility."
Bellamy's motto, The 100

"Please, I don't have time for this right now... my little sister, she's..." He began. In his mind, it was only natural that she would let him past if she understood the situation. He himself had let Chrono past him without a fight when Fate had gotten hurt, hadn't he? It was a big bro's job to protect his baby sister whenever and wherever she needed him. Stopping him from doing that job was just wrong; while he had his doubts as to the morality of some of the actions he'd found himself and his siblings taking recently, that much he knew for sure. Some things were just evil.

"You dared to make my baby sister hungry? You're going down jar!"

Don't worry, I've got you;
Nothing will ever harm you.
I'm close by, I'll stay here;
Through all things, I will be near.
Gold, RWBY

"It's Dean and Sam. It's Oliver and Thea. It's Laurel and Sara. Always and forever. Laurel - much like Dean and Oliver - has made terrible, selfish, impossible choices for her sister. She was willing to destroy, to upend her life, ruin friendships, risk her own soul, just to bring Sara home. She has stripped herself apart to give this girl life, and there has never been one single second where she regretted that.When half of your heart is walking around outside of your body, stuffed into some reckless child who wants to fight the world to save it, you do what you have to do. You keep it beating. When you are an older sibling, you are given a responsibility. You are shown a life that matters so much more than yours. You keep that kid safe. It doesn't matter what you lose in the process or how many things you have to take apart to keep something else together. All that matters is that you do your job."
Laurel on the responsibility of an older sibling, How The Light Gets In

Why I felt the need to hide this from Sweetie when I had just extolled her responsible nature eluded me. Perhaps it simply stemmed from my desire to protect her.

"If you forgot my kid sister's birthday, I'll never forgive you!"
