Sometimes, yes, but in a more general sense.

For instance, in Sin City Miho is about to kill Wallace, who has to explain that he was the one who saved her life years ago. Or someone telling off Bruce Wayne because for all the money he sinks into charities, he never does anything to physically prevent crime on the streets.
