1. On Glee, when Finn sang "You're Having My Baby" to Quinn in front of her parents, and then it ended up not even being his baby.

2. Also on Glee, when the New Directions performed "Push It" by Salt-N-Pepa in front of the entire school.

3. On The Secret Life of the American Teenager, when Amy told Ben she's a whore, and he tried to comfort her by saying "You're my whore."
