Go To

"There's no such thing as magic!"

"Uh, not this again. Ike, we are sick of you talking about ghosts!"
Gerald Broflovski, South Park

"No son of mine is going to be a chocolatier!"
Dr. Wilbur Wonka, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

"Stop indulging him! I'm nothing if I'm not liberal, but that limp-wristed, hippie garbage needs to be nipped in the bud!"
Perry Bancock, ParaNorman

"You've disobeyed my orders, son,
Why were you ever born?.
Your brother's ten times better than you,
Jesus loves him more.

This music that you play for us comes from the depths of hell.
Rock and roll's The Devil's work, he wants you to rebel
You'll become a mindless puppet;
Beelzebub will pull the strings!
Your heart will lose direction,
And chaos it will bring.
You'd better shut your mouth,
Better watch your tone!
You're grounded for a week with no telephone!
Don't let me here you cry,
Don't let me hear you moan!
You gotta praise The Lord when you're in my home!"
J.B.'s Father (played by Meat Loaf), Tenacious D in The Pick of Destiny

"I was told Zelda went off to research ancient technology, so I had no choice but to confront her about it. She claims she was simply using her day off from training to indulge in a bit of research, but still I scolded her. She won't get it through her head... Forcing me to tell her the same thing I have been repeating ad nauseam. The reason her sacred powers still won't awaken is because she's spending all her efforts playing at being a scholar!"

"In truth, I understand Zelda's feelings. Painfully so. She lost her mother, her teacher, before she could learn from her. Ten pointless years of self-training, without so much as a book or note to help her find her way... Those in the castle talk behind her back. And I, her only family, scold her for her shortcomings. No wonder she wishes to hide away in her beloved relic research. I'd love nothing more than to console her... But I must stay strong. She MUST fulfill her duty, just as we all must. Even if she comes to despise me."

How well does it match the trope?
