Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })Acting's version of Hollywood Tone-Deaf. In Hollywood, bad acting can only come in two flavors: completely over-the-top and exaggerated, or a stilted, wooden, monotone delivery of every single line. These actors have never heard of suspension of disbelief. They couldn't act wet in a rainstorm.
This often happens when characters are forced to reenact a specific event in hopes that it will have the same consequences. Often afflicts school rooms around the world where teachers have students read lines aloud, with the students not caring for the actual tone of the piece at all. What can almost be considered a trope in its own right is to attempt to pay homage to William Shatner with strangely... placed... staccato pauses and... random jumps in pitch. Another popularly used example is if the characters are attempting to fool a third party by acting as if they are having a conversation or argument. Usually, the third party doesn't pick up on how awkwardly the others are talking.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })Bonus points if the character's eyes scan slowly back and forth as they read the out-of-shot cue cards.
Also like Hollywood Tone-Deaf, in that professional actors can, well, act. If they aren't very good at their job, you wouldn't be able to tell if they were sucking on purpose for the Show Within a Show. Those who are good at acting typically couldn't mimic a bad actor. Even then, just like above, it'd be hard to tell if the actor was trying to fail — though it's something like common wisdom that only someone who's very good at something can be deliberately bad at something. Also, as per Rule of Funny, genuinely bad acting isn't amusing — or at least not as amusing as Bad "Bad Acting". Impersonations done in Bad "Bad Acting" tend to involve Hugh Mann, Reading the Stage Directions Out Loud and Most Definitely Not a Villain.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_3'); })Just to reiterate, this is where characters In-Universe try to act and do a horrible job at it, not when you think someone does a legitimately horrible acting job or even a So Bad, It's Good performance. We have a whole other set of tropes for that.
See Stylistic Suck, the Super-Trope of this, and its subtropes Bad Impressionists and Hollywood Tone-Deaf. This trope can also be an element of The Show Must Go Wrong.
Contrast The Power of Acting. Compare Terrible Artist.

In Moana, Moana is sent into Tamatoa's cave to attract his attention by dressing up as a shiny trinket and gives a lackluster, deadpan performance. Maui even makes mention of the fact that she's not selling it. And even though Tamatoa sees through her charade, he still can't resist falling for the trap due to his narcissism, but still, she definitely wasn't selling it.

In Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, Robert Downey Jr.'s character, a petty thief, is running from the cops and bursts into some acting auditions. In order to escape the police, he goes ahead and does an audition, reading out the lines in a monotone ("Um... beat up on me all night. You want me to give up my client, you can go spit.") until some of the dialogue hits too close to home. Then he appears to be doing a great acting job, but it's really genuine emotion. (Ah, Method Acting...)

Angel:
Doyle's video ad for Angel Investigations in "Hero". After his death, it's played later on in the first and then the fifth season, turning into a Tear Jerker.
Cordelia also displays this — especially in a risible performance in Henrik Ibsen's A Doll's House — but improves markedly. Strangely, although she was shown as being a poor actress at first, she was always an excellent liar; capable of fooling even Angelus.
In Season 5, Angel when he does a We Care add for Wolfram & Hart.
Then when Angel absconds to see Buffy, Cordelia and Wesley use overly melodramatic acting to poke fun at their romance.

In The Naked Gun 33 1/3, Frank Drebin has to replace a host at the Oscars Gala. At first, he doesn't know what to say, so his co-hostess tells him to read off the teleprompter. Which he does, word for word, including the stage directions and the co-hostess' own lines. Things don't exactly improve when he starts to ad-lib. Hilarity Ensues.

Parodied in several skits entitled "Prehistoric Glamazon Huntresses A.D" that poked fun of B-rated television series.
The modus operandi of Mad TV's "Dolemite" and "Son of Dolemite" skits, where everything from acting to camera work is extremely shoddy and cut-rate.

Skins series five. The third generation gang is involved with putting on a college show towards the end of the series and chief organizer, head girl and all-around queen bee Mini McGuinness turns out to give a horribly stilted and melodramatic performance that she naturally thinks is really good. Meanwhile the most extreme outsiders of the group, Franky and Richard, give extremely good performances that are well-received by the audience.

The It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia episode "Dee Reynolds: Shaping America's Youth" featured an absurd showing of a fan film made by the main characters: Lethal Weapon 5. Aside from all its other problems (like the horrible racism), it featured some of the worst acting imaginable. Like Charlie's dreadful line readings ("Turns out someone tainted - tapped the tainted water supply! The person who just died was your wife!") and Frank's turn as the screeching Large Ham villain.
The Gang's venture into musicals in "The Nightman Cometh" featured loads of bad acting.

The Simpsons:
The "Mr. Plow" episode, where the family produces their own (badly acted) TV commercial.
And then there is the nuclear plant's commercial to convince graduates to work there in "D'oh-in in the Wind".
In "Burns' Heir", Mr. Burns hires actors to play the rest of Bart's family so he can convince Bart to stay with him. After the video, Mr. Burns has to flip through the script to tell the fake Homer what his line is supposed to be because it was incorrect.
A recurring feature of the "McBain" films, whose lead actor is The Ahnold par excellence and specializes in Dull Surprise. Most of his dialogue is Bond One Liners and exposition slurred out with the confidence of an extremely well-paid person who isn't entirely fluent in English.

Double subverted in Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus. B.J. Blaskowicz has to infiltrate the Nazi base on Venus disguised as an actor to star in a propaganda movie about himself. His disguise persona as an actor is good enough to fool a director, and even a senile and frail Adolf Hitler. But when it comes time to read the actual lines for the part, his acting is stiff, wooden, and monotone. Hitler even berates Blaskowicz for it.
But then he changes his tune when the actors have to perform a fight scene. B.J goes in, kills his Nazi training partner brutally in a fit of rage, and Hitler practically squeals in delight at the performance, calling him "better than perfect". Of course, that was just B.J normally.

The MythBusters sometimes do Stylistic Suck videos that illustrate a myth that they're doing. When they do this, the acting is either over-the-top or oddly stilted. While this is somewhat justified by the fact that none of them (with the possible exception of Adam) are professional actors, it still manages to be So Bad, It's Good in the exact way Bad "Bad Acting" generally is.
An interesting episode was about testing to see if hypnotic recall could actually work to make you remember things that you couldn't before. To test this Adam and Jamie set up an altercation with some delivery guys (who were planted actors) with Tory, Kari, and Grant nearby. As a viewer in on the deception, you could tell it was an act but it would be convincing enough for the casual observers.

Chewin' the Fat featured Ronald Villiers, "the second-worst actor in the world". He cannot remember the simplest of lines, respond to any cue, or take any form of direction. He can ruin any scene no matter how small the part (when playing a Puritan villager in an angry mob during the Salem Witch Trials, he constantly mumbled over the main actors) and even when he has no lines (when playing a prison warden who is only there to open the door of a cell, every take failed because of him noisily clanging the door or fumbling with the keys.)

In Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, the girls of the "Beauty Village" claim to be under attack and ask for help from Team Gurren, pretending to be terrified. It is obvious to the viewer that they are faking it, and most of the brigade realizes that it's at least "suspicious." But Kittan is so excited to be able to save an all-female village that he agrees to help.

Subverted for effect in the first Naruto movie: the actress the team escorts played out a scene they see her shooting quite convincingly; this shocks the team because it sharply contrasts with how distant and snide the actress really behaves. She's not, however, able to fake crying.

In The Lizzie Bennet Diaries, whenever a character steps in to play another character and their acting styles says a lot about the character themselves.
Lizzie tends to exaggerate and caricatures.
Lydia overacts flamboyantly.
Jane starts out as a Deer in the Headlights every time the camera turns on her but through Character Development, she showcases her growing thespianian.
Charlotte gives realistic but emotionally cold/uninteresting performances.
Mary's attempt at costume theater is melodramatic and she breaks character twice.
Darcy finds it too hard to imitate his sister but he does an excellent job as his best friend Fitz.

Dragon Ball:
The "Cell Games Historical Reenactment" in Dragon Ball Z. Promptly Lampshaded by the heroes who are incredulously watching it. In the Kai version, they are notably played by Team Four Star and their dialogue references numerous memes.
In Dragon Ball Super Goku pretends to take a punch from Mr. Satan to escape from a crowd without revealing to the populace that he can fly. His hilarious fake scream of pain as he flies off is made gut-busting funny when in the middle of it all he takes the time to pick up his tractor (which he wanted Satan to fix) while still screaming.

GLOW (2017):
Most of the GLOW wrestlers are completely untrained actresses who simply ham up their exaggerated characters. Debbie and Ruth are the only actresses in the cast who have any sort of training.
In the first part of season 2, Cherry's disastrous attempt to star in a cop show reveals her total lack of dramatic acting skill. She delivers her lines in a blank, stilted fashion as if she's using all her concentration to just pronounce the words. In a moment of desperation, she turns to Sam for help, and he honestly tells her what she knows is true: at present, she is not competent enough to do the job. In a few years, she might acquire the necessary skills but right now her only choice is to find a way to walk away from the show before she gets fired and gets a bad reputation in the industry. Sam ultimately finds a way for everyone involved to save face and release Cherry from her contract so she can come back to GLOW.

Supernatural:
In "The French Mistake", Sam and Dean are thrust into an alternate reality in which they are Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles. At one point, Sam and Dean are forced to play themselves, and they do a spectacularly bad job of it.
One can only imagine the "real" script directions for Jared and Jensen who were told to act as Sam and Dean (normal), who are acting like Jared and Jensen (would already be difficult) who are acting as Sam and Dean (WTF?).
We also see the this played with by the cast of Hell Hazers II: The Reckoning in the episode "Hollywood Babylon".

In Final Fantasy VII, Cloud and one of the girls end up starring in an incredibly bad play. Depending on player choices, Cloud's acting will either be sincere or a Ham and Cheese exercise in doing the stupidest possible thing in every situation to push the show Off the Rails. The girl will ask 'did I do that right?' after her first line but will try to play the role seriously unless Cloud's antics make it impossible.

The Daily Show: For a while, the end segment (a.k.a. "the toss") that segues into The Colbert Report was pre-taped, instead of done with a live audience as usual. Fans noticed and were displeased. On the show that returned to live tosses, Jon Stewart acknowledged that the fans enjoyed the expression of "warmth and genuine camaraderie" between him and Stephen Colbert — and both immediately became very wooden, read robotically off the teleprompters, and expressed relief when it was over.

The Big Bang Theory:
Subverted in one episode. The show works up the expectation that Penny, who is an aspiring actress, (and also shown to be a horrible singer), was also not that good an actress either. Whilst the fans of the show would expect her to be a typical sitcom style bad actor (and this is lampshaded to an extent in the lines previous), the first time her acting is revealed, it's in a tense moment with the Dogged Nice Guy, Penny exclaiming that if they moved in together (to save on rent) that "She couldn't keep her hands off him". He believes her, at which point she reveals her acting classes "weren't a waste of money".
A later episode had Leonard, Sheldon and Amy attend a class performance of A Streetcar Named Desire with Penny as Blanche. The few snippets we see are rather convincingly that of an amateur production.
The shows-within-a-show "Serial Apeist" and "Serial Apeist II: Monkey See, Monkey Kill" that Penny features in are said or seen to be pretty bad. A later scene has a character asking Penny if she was trying to act that badly.

Supergirl: J'onn, despite being a shapeshifter, is... mediocre at acting. Everyone who has ever interacted with one of his disguises for more than five seconds notices something is weird, though usually, nothing comes of it. Special mention goes to when J'onn has to pretend to be Kara when she is indisposed and Lena wants to visit her. J'onn puts absolutely zero effort into his acting, stiffly referring to James as "Mister Olsen" and not even bothering to smile. Lena completely fails to notice anything is wrong since she thought Kara was sick and assumed anything strange was the result of that.

In one episode of Freakazoid!, a man who runs into the room the main character is, panicking and yelling that the Lobe has arrived. He's promptly scolded and forced to repeat the scene. At a second instance, the title character tells him to take acting lessons. Much later during the final showdown between the hero and the Lobe, the same man breaks up the fight to show them that the acting lessons have paid off, by performing the Death of Romeo, from Shakespeare's famous play.
That's announcer Joe Leahy.

One of the endings of Saints Row: The Third has you chase the villain to Mars, with a mixture of extremely contrived plot devices and wooden acting meant as clues that he actually got away in that ending and you're making a film about going after him. The Protagonist even forgets the lines to his ending speech, despite the fact that it's just a copy of the opening lines to Red Faction: Guerrilla. The same goes for the Gangsta's In SPACE! DLC, where the entire mission pack is around similarly cheesy film scenes.

The Angry Beavers:
"Dag for Night":
Practically every other episode features at least one example. In-universe B-Movie actor Oxnard Montalvo is the embodiment of this trope.
The Beavers idolize Oxnard Montalvo and he is probably consciously or subconsciously emulating him. (And really, why wouldn't anyone want to be Just Like Oxnard Montalvo.)

American Dad! had an episode that revealed Stan is such a horrendous actor that he can't even pretend to be a waiter convincingly (When he offers the diners water, he does so in a stiff and clearly nervous manner that prompts them to respond "What was that? It was like you were offering me water, but I just didn't believe it."). Director Bullock refuses to let Stan go on any more sting operations because his acting turns them into violent shoot-outs, so he ends up taking acting lessons from Roger.

Ultra Fast Pony has the cast putting on a play in "The Best Episode Ever". Twilight Sparkle (playing the role of Clover) is rather realistically bad, as she breaks character to correct other actors, and she just doesn't have the chops to convincingly pull off her dramatic death scene. Rarity (as Princess Plutonium) on the other hand, is ridiculously wooden, reading all of her lines (and her stage directions, and her dialogue tags) as a monotone, run-on sentence.

Be Kind Rewind is built on this trope. The protagonists need to replace a bunch of VHS tapes that were accidentally erased, so they record their own versions using a hand-held home video camera. They claim the differences from what people remember is because these are the Swedish versions. They're way too short, the special effects are home made, the plot is based on what they remember of the movie, and (where this trope comes in) instead of big-name stars they have random people from the neighborhood. Turns out people love the "Sweded" movies, because they're So Bad, It's Good.

In a Lucky Channel segment of the first Lucky Star episode to feature Minoru Shiraishi's voice in the main segment, Akira criticizes his reading and offers to help him practice by going over the scene again, with her as Miss Kuroi. Her reading of Kuroi's line is really dull, except for a bit when she has trouble reading the word "quiet" and Shiraishi whispers the correct pronunciation to her, provoking a bit of mild annoyance that shows as she says it correctly.

The Archer episode "Lo Scandalo" has the ISIS staff's fake "eeeeee-legant dinner pah-ty", which they put on in a feeble attempt to distract the police from the murder that took place in Mallory's apartment.

Face from The A-Team had a very similar example. When the A-Team had to help Hannibal make a monster movie on location in Season 4, the plot started to happen, and Face wound up playing the male lead. Normally, he was the slickest con man around, convincingly pretending to be all sorts of different occupations, but when they put him in front of a camera, he was wooden. Face, being Face, immediately made excuses for it, saying that he was getting the feel for the character, etc.

Garnet of Steven Universe tends to fall into this whenever she's trying to fake something- while she tends towards natural stoicisim it turns flat as cardboard in some situations. When she throws a fight in Tiger Millionaire she literally just stands ramrod straight and tips over backward after being 'knocked out' by Steven. In Fusion Cuisine her attempt to pose as Steven's mother consists of answering the phone with "Yes, this is Mom Universe. The children are playing swords. Sorry, playing with swords. They're bleeding. Oh no, they are dead. Don't call again." and then hanging up.
In contrast to these two scenes, she unexpectedly swings towards very convincing in Secret Team staging a monster attack to get Pearl and Amethyst to apologize to each other. Though that could be simply because she was genuinely angry at the time.

Bowfinger is all about a producer with no money and no filming permits trying to film a movie with a totally unaware star (by filming around him with hidden cameras). At one point, in order to have a real cop car in the film, they bribe the cop driving it with a walk-on role in the movie. He has one line, and he delivers it like he's never spoken English before...or seen human movements. "Tough guyyyyyzzlikeyou don' get farindiswhorle, Miss-Terr!" All while waving his arms as if to shoo a fly.

Mass Effect:
One of the races, the Elcor, communicate emotion and nuance through scent and facial cues. Speaking in monotone and prefacing their statements with a description of how they feel for the benefit of other races doesn't make for good acting, but there is still a famous, award-winning all-elcor run of Hamlet. See the trailer:
The director of the elcor Hamlet is later revealed to be working on a krogan Macbeth, which should be interesting given that a typical krogan is likely to open negotiations with questions regarding Shakespeare's ability to beat up Christopher Marlowe. Despite this, the hard part is apparently the pyjak.
Mass Effect 3 has an in-universe action movie Blasto 6: Partners in Crime. Blasto is a hanar, a race of excruciatingly polite jellyfish-like aliens who have little ability to express emotions vocally - and his partner is an elcor (see above), and over and above that, an elcor who either can't or won't use any tone other than "badassfully".
The Citadel DLC gives you the chance of acting in Blasto 7: Blasto Goes To War, alongside Javik. Between Blasto acting like a prima donna, Shepard having his/her heroics stolen by Blasto himself, a Citadel Council where only one of the species present is actually on the Council and the vorcha councillor keeps forgetting his lines, Javik's backstory being completely butchered, and the atrocious model of a Reaper, one has to wonder what the writers were tanked on when they wrote this. Especially amusingly, six months previously, in the second game, they had only recently released the first Blasto movie; six sequels in six months, with a seventh being lined up immediately after the sixth for Blasto curing the genophage. It is likely people thought In-Universe the movies were So Bad, It's Good they came to watch it in droves.

"Threat Level Midnight" showcases Michael's personal pet project movie of the same name, which has the Dunder-Mifflin staff as the actors. But since they aren't professional actors, much of their dialogue delivery either comes off as way over the top (especially Jim as the Big Bad), sounding like they're phoning in their performances, or trying to sound dramatic in spite of the cliched writing, resulting in all kinds of narm. Karen's line delivery is especially bad, to the point the documentary crew actually tracked her down to ask her about this, much to her irritation.
In one episode, Karen participates in a prank with Jim and says her lines in an obviously artificial manner, which Dwight is too dim to notice.

Locke's performance in the Opera scene of Final Fantasy VI has the Impressario comment on how terrible his acting is. Due to technical limitations, it's left as an Informed Ability, since a player can't actually hear him talk. However, Locke refers to the main character of the opera by the name of her actress instead of the name of her character, which is a very amateurish mistake.

Free Spirit has Winnie criticize the acting in kid-com Boss of the World. She soon declares that even Gene could perform more professionally than that show's cast members, so the two of them decide to visit Hollywood and have Gene audition for the studio's next show.

The girl playing the role of the Saxon Princess on the film set in The Rocketeer. Justified in that she got the part by reason of being the director's niece; the rest of the cast is pretty good.

One episode of GARO: Makai Senki involved a popular idol making his acting debut as the hero of a classical play. He delivers all his lines in ridiculously stilted fashion, ignoring all direction in favor of his own ad-libs. The rest of the cast and crew despairs of him but are forced to put up with him because he draws in audiences.

Blaine's brother in Glee is an awful actor who thinks he's a brilliant actor. His highlights include shuffling around after his 'death' to show the camera his better side, pointing dramatically, ignoring everyone in the scene with him, and of course, SCREAMING ALL HIS LINES because he's AN INTENSE ACTOR and the things that he's feeling are REALLY INTENSE! But mostly pointing.

KYTV:
There's a spoof behind-the-scenes production of a Dickensian costume drama with a useless lead actor, who can barely read and can't even say his lines in the correct order: "I think it now not far... is?", "I too, wife weary... am?".
Bad "Bad Acting" is a staple of KYTV's "Brazilian soap opera, Ole!, translated and dubbed by KYTV," where the "Brazillian" actors play with exaggerated melodrama, while the voice-over actors read their lines in a dull, monotone way, regularly missing their cues, reading the wrong lines and mispronouncing words.
KYTV was based on the radio series Radio Active which also used this trope regularly. The radio version of the Dickens parody featured the narrator saying "Children die on the street happily... Die on the streets. Happily, our story concerns on who lives." And the Oliver Twist expy saying "Gruel, please can I have some moron... Please, can I have some more on my plate."

Played with in Monk. In "Mr. Monk Goes to the Theater", Monk becomes the understudy for an actor who was murdered. When he's re-enacting the scene in the play to try to solve the crime, he's really good; Sharona does her part much less convincingly. Monk starts to lose it in rehearsals; during the actual performance, he makes a lot of mistakes and veers into Large Ham territory. During the actual performance, he was also rather flustered due to having just figured out that the murderer was the person he was acting with on the stage.

In a good few Recess episodes the gang sometimes have to act for a scam and deliver horrible performances. One episode has a kid forgetting what word he's supposed to say... halfway through saying it and he has to check his hand for the rest of it (said word was "automatically"). Though subverted in one episode where Gus convincingly disguises himself as a girl in order to steal a baseball bat from the Ashleys.

Other That Guy with the Glasses contributors have also dabbled in this: Spoony and Linkara's Warrior crossover video showcased an alternate universe (one of several) where Spoony and Linkara are terrible actors, reading their lines flatly from the script, fumbling with the props and making no attempts to emote. Linkara's commentary hung a lampshade on this by mentioning that some people think they were already terrible actors to begin with...

Late in the Ouran High School Host Club anime, Haruhi is kidnapped by the Zuka Club and forced to participate in a tragic play (as part of an excruciatingly complex revenge gambit by Benio). The characters comment on Haruhi's "robotic" acting, which consists of repeating the same line with virtually no intonation. (As an aside, Haruhi's English voice actress does an excellent job of crappy acting in this instance; the rest of the time, Haruhi is acted with great aplomb.)

Mystery Science Theater 3000
While trying to escape Hobgoblins, the Satellite of Love crew set up some decoy lookalikes and a prerecorded riff track, which combines this trope with some... odd phrasings.
Also somewhat earlier in the series, when Dr. Forrester forces the crew to put on an act for his visiting mother. Starts at about 4:45, and runs the gamut.

In Dragon Ball Super Goku pretends to take a punch from Mr. Satan to escape from a crowd without revealing to the populace that he can fly.

They leave behind copies of themselves to take their places, but it turns out that the copies don't retain any memories and therefore are not familiar with the short play they are putting on. It all goes downhill when the Taranee copy begins her narration with "Taranee speaks dramatically..."

The first few WALL•E live-action "commercials" we see the title character drive by for the Axiom is filled with the acting level you would expect from any commercial.

A truly spectacular example occurs in Super 8 during the short film the main characters are producing throughout the movie. During the credits, you see the finished film, and the acting is bad. In fact, it shows off the acting talent of the young actors in being able to act that badly. The film even shows that their actress Alice is actually really good, but the kid director chose a cut where she had to yell above the sound of a train, causing her to sound just as bad as the rest of them.

Cow and Chicken
Played with in an episode where Cow plays the title character of a film called "Pretty Little Girl". Not only is the acting atrocious, but the actors (especially Cow, who's also nervous) also keep mixing up random words on the cue cards. The director (who's actually the Red Guy) eventually decides to employ a little Enforced Method Acting, which makes the entire staff (himself included) burst into tears. Too bad the cameraman forgot to put the film in the camera.
Also, in the episode "Meet Lance Sackless," when they film a video to send to Canada's Funniest Home Vidiots, Cow pretends to accidentally put glue on her head as she mistakes it for anti-itch cream to heal her horns from doing chores and then Chicken falls onto Cow from the ceiling having their heads stuck to each other's, while saying their lines in a seemingly sarcastic manner. Also, when Cow reaches for the anti-itch cream, Chicken tells her to reach for the glue.

Living in Oblivion
The first act has actresses Nicole and Ellen repeatedly giving rather bland performances, which provide a contrast to the one take where they really nail it... while the camera is off.
Chad's attempt at improvising in the second act is humorously awful, putting exactly the wrong spin and timing on every line.

One of the Francis subplots from Malcolm in the Middle had Otto hiring an acting troupe to stage a live murder-mystery, only the performance was a Cliché Storm whose annoyance and direct interference with the guests caused them to leave en masse. Too soft to fire them, Otto hired an audience to watch and praise them to help boost their confidence. The audience was 'also' an example of Bad "Bad Acting", although they were deadpan in contrast to the Large Ham performance of the troupe, to which the troupe's leader was totally oblivious.

Mordecai and Rigby win a spot on a TV series in an episode of Regular Show "Carter and Briggs". Mordecai's Bad "Bad Acting" goes so deep his voice even cracks during his line.

In The Castle of Cagliostro, Inspector Zenigata learns about an illegal counterfeiting operation in the basement of a building. The problem is that his superiors refuse to act on this since many nations are buying these counterfeit bills. His solution? He brings a TV news camera crew down to the basement of the building while pretending to chase Lupin and badly feigns surprise at finding counterfeiting equipment, "discovering" it in a way that makes it impossible to ignore. This makes one of his superiors comment, "He's such a bad actor."

The Brady Bunch: The episode "And Now a Word From Our Sponsor" – where the Bradys are offered a chance to star in a TV commercial – has Mike and Carol hire an actress acquaintance (Myrna Carter) to help them brush up their acting skills, hoping to become believable when the fateful day finally comes. However, Myrna is – at best – a method actress to the extreme and more than likely just a very bad actress who is completely unqualified to give lessons or advice. Nonetheless, Mike and Carol (and the rest of the family) take her well-intentioned advice to heart ... and the resulting stiff, bombastic acting winds up costing them their shot at TV commercial stardom. The director, Skip Farnum, had wanted the family to "be themselves," and at the end of the last scene, Skip angrily asks his cohort the name of that bad actress they used to work with, because the Bradys' style was just like hers.

Futurama:
During "When Aliens Attack", when the crew has to act out an episode of Single Female Lawyer.
The porn film featured in "A Big Piece of Garbage" — with gusto!
The two educational films shown within the show: I Dated a Robot!! and Global Warming — None Like It Hot!!! (the second features the claim that the Earth is warming due to the piling-up of corpses after gang-member-like greenhouse gases beat sunbeams to death).
In "Where No Fan Has Gone Before" where William Shatner himself does it. It's the complete opposite of his usual unholy acting talent, and the entire Star Trek cast follows suit with their own embarrassingly monotone acting — though the fact that they're being held captive and forced to perform a fanboy's Marty Stu script goes a long way towards explaining their complete lack of effort.
Despite being a dream of Zapp Brannigan, The Transcredible Exploits of Zapp Brannigan is loaded with this.
Frequent in the Show Within a Show All My Circuits, though Calculon is more of a Large Ham. Played straight when Zoidberg's uncle directs a movie, which also includes Bad "Bad Directing". Robot Devil gave Calculon UNHOLY! ACTING! TALENT! Which, of course, he'd soon live to regret.
In one episode Bender auditions for a role in All My Circuits. He gives a performance so bad Calculon (who is a robot), claims it gave him cancer.

Averted in Stroker Ace since part of the Impersonation Gambit involves fooling Torkle into believing the Miller Brewing Company is trying to buy his fried chicken franchise. Doc, one of Stroker's friends, is taking acting courses and uses this to his advantage. The problem is Doc's dad, who hasn't had these same courses and is likely to fall to this trope while helping Doc. Doc instead tells his dad to repeat the same phrase to Torkle and then coaches him to pronounce it without his usual drawl. His dad's performance is still awful, but since he nails the accent despite only using the one line, Torkle doesn't catch on.

Ghostbusters:
In Ghostbusters II, Janine and Louis are roped into acting for a commercial for the company. They fall squarely into this.
This scene follows the similar commercial from the first movie, with the original three Ghostbusters reading very stilted lines, and Egon even looking down when he steps forward and back to make sure he steps on his floor mark. This was actually Harold Ramis making sure he hit his mark — the director thought it was so perfect he kept that take. This scene was later referenced in Evolution (also directed by Ivan Reitman), with the main characters doing a really badly acted commercial for Head & Shoulders (with one of them even holding the bottle upside down).

Final Fantasy:
Locke's performance in the Opera scene of Final Fantasy VI has the Impressario comment on how terrible his acting is. Due to technical limitations, it's left as an Informed Ability, since a player can't actually hear him talk. However, Locke refers to the main character of the opera by the name of her actress instead of the name of her character, which is a very amateurish mistake.
In Final Fantasy VII, Cloud and one of the girls end up starring in an incredibly bad play. Depending on player choices, Cloud's acting will either be sincere or a Ham and Cheese exercise in doing the stupidest possible thing in every situation to push the show Off the Rails. The girl will ask 'did I do that right?' after her first line but will try to play the role seriously unless Cloud's antics make it impossible.
The infamous laughing scene in Final Fantasy X qualifies since the characters themselves are fake-laughing. Tidus has just learned that Sin is actually his father Jecht, though he doesn't know how or why yet, and as such, his laughing comes off as incredibly awkward in-universe. Wakka even says "we were just worried you guys might have gone crazy" after Tidus and Yuna are done fake-laughing.

There's also The Nostalgia Chick's review of Showgirls. Because she can't show the naughty scenes on blip, she has to get her friends to play the parts. They either look bored or uncomfortable and one is even reading a book while he gives a lapdance.

Everyone in Garth Marenghis Darkplace does this in their own particular way. Garth (as Rick Dagless) hopelessly overangsts his every line, the actress playing Liz lives in a world of Dull Surprise and breathless delivery, Dr. Sanchez is played as the Ham to end all Hams, and Thornton Reed (notably played by 'not an actor' Dean Learner) blurts out all of his lines in an awkward rush. Even the extras have their own bad acting. The only person that can be said to avert this was The Temp.

Saturday Night Live:
Vanessa Bayer's reoccurring sketch "The Miley Cyrus Show".
Another one of Bayer's characters, Laura Parsons, is a parody of adolescent drama students who think showing off acting technique is the same thing as giving a performance. She performs scenes from Age Inappropriate movies like Brokeback Mountain and The Social Network with a singsong vocal rhythm and gratuitous hand gestures.
An older SNL sketch, "Goth Talk" was more or less Bad "Bad Acting" of the hammy variety. The two black-shrouded hosts, Stephanie and Todd (aka Circe Nightshade and Azrael Abyss), as well as all of their guests, tried to be ludicrously morbid, gothic and emotional, even when referencing very modern, pedestrian things. The fact that they essentially broke character every few sentences did not help.

At one point in Tales of Graces, the party attempts to put on a play based on Snow White. Most of them have no acting experience, and it shows. Cheria as the princess is so excited by her role that she ends up overacting every word out of her mouth, Asbel as the prince and Sophie as the narrator are completely wooden, and Hubert as the evil queen hams it up as much as possible in hopes that it will keep people from recognizing him.

Game of Thrones:
In "Valar Morghulis", the Lannisters, their Small Council members, and the Tyrells enact a ceremony in which King Joffrey dismisses Sansa and takes Margaery as his betrothed for the benefit of the court. Joffrey turns to his mother in anticipation for her line before Queen Cersei starts speaking. Margaery Tyrell enthusiastically participates in the rehearsed charade, but Ser Loras is literally a bad actor. He can't be bothered to do his small part properly, as his body language practically oozes with contempt for Joffrey, and Loras even messes up one of his lines because he inadvertently lets out a Freudian Slip regarding his feelings for Renly.

Leverage:
Sophie's acting is terrible. Really terrible. Once, Parker compared Sophie's acting in Death of a Salesman* In which she played the title role. to a horror movie saying "Attention must be PAID!" and Eliot declared that that was the worst night of his life. (This was juxtaposed with a flashback of him being forced to play Russian Roulette while held captive.) As is made clear throughout the series, she's only terrible when she's trying to act outside of a con. If it's during a con, she can pull off almost any role effortlessly. As Nate puts it, "She can act... when it's an act."
There are times when Parker, called upon to act, does so very unconvincingly.

Then they commence the bad acting with Jazz having "killed" Danny; the two perform stilted acts that somehow gets the usual Chessmaster Vlad convinced. Later, Danny and Jazz poke fun at their poor attempts at drama.

SpongeBob SquarePants:
In "As Seen on TV", Mr. Krabs films a commercial for the Krusty Krab, where him, Squidward, and Pearl are obviously not good actors. Then again, it aired very early in the morning.
There's also the bit in "Nature Pants" where Sandy and Patrick are trying to convince SpongeBob to return home. It obviously doesn't work very well; Patrick is both too dense and (at the time) too teary-eyed to act worth a damn.
In "Karate Island" there are the "opponents" SpongeBob has to face to take the throne as "King of Karate". They all play dead when SpongeBob throws a punch, and he didn't even touch them.

The "Pizza" sidestory in El Goonish Shive uses Animated Actors, and some of the characters are better actors than others.
Kitty is an extra Large Ham. She doesn't so much speak her lines as shout them, and while her character shows an initial reluctance to eat pizza, her appetite for scenery more than makes up for it.
Ashley gives the script far more respect than it deserves. She also blatantly tries too hard. In particular, any gestures she makes are exaggerated.
George completely phones it in. He makes absolutely no effort to sell his performance and merely reads off thes script.

My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic likes this trope:
In "Hurricane Fluttershy", Fluttershy's attempts at playing sick are rather bad. She pretends to sneeze and cough in the most unconvincing way possible.
"Spike at Your Service":
Applejack's attempt at pretending to be a Damsel in Distress acting is extremely wooden, with very flat cries for help and very unconvincing acting. Weirdly, Spike says he's impressed by it.
Pinkie Pie and Rarity in the same episode. Pinkie runs around pretending to be scared and screaming with a huge grin on her face and Rarity, who taught Applejack how to scream for help, becomes overly dramatic, hamming up her screams.
Rainbow Dash has been consistently shown to be a bad actor, especially when it comes to faking injuries or illness, as demonstrated in both "Read It and Weep" and "Rainbow Falls". In general, she tends towards over-the-top, overacted moaning melodrama.
In "Horse Play", Princess Celestia proves to be a terrible actress, alternating between over-acting and under-acting: she starts out whispering at a barely audible level, overcompensates by going into the ear-bustlingly loud Royal Canterlot Voice, can't work through a choreography to save her life and has seemingly no ability to suspend disbelief whatsoever. She can't even play charades.

Doctor Who:
In "The Ice Warriors", the Doctor indicates to Victoria that she needs to start pretending to cry as a distraction. Her fake crying is absolutely horrible, although it works (perhaps the Ice Warriors don't know what human crying is supposed to sound like).
"The Enemy of the World", which has an Impersonating the Evil Twin gimmick (where both the Doctor and Salamander are played by Patrick Troughton), uses multiple and subtle layers of this:
When the Doctor first impersonates Salamander, as he knows little about the man, his accent and appearance is good but his acting is just the generically commanding personality he usually uses in his Bavarian Fire Drills. He also noticeably pauses while thinking of new ways to bluff. This does turn out to be good enough to fool the agent he was doing this to, but not good enough that he doesn't think that Salamander was "not himself" and "acting really strangely".
When Salamander is lying his face off in front of the scientists, he becomes noticeably unctuous compared to his usual personality, which isn't the way the Second Doctor tends to indicate a bluff. Cracks in the façade definitely begin to show as he realizes some of them have him figured out.
Subverted when the Doctor impersonates Salamander for the second time, where the fact that he's nailed the character so completely (compared to his weak performance before) is used to fool the audience into thinking it actually is Salamander. Significantly, when the Doctor drops the façade, it's in response to physical violence and the intended audience reaction isn't "hooray, it's the Doctor!" but "oh no, Salamander can act like the Doctor too!" The Doctor has to use Shave and a Haircut as a Shibboleth to prove who he is to them.
"Meglos": The Doctor and Romana are caught in a chronic hysteresis (a time loop), which results in them going through the same scene involving repairing K-9 by waggling his tail several times. In order to break themselves out of said loop, they have to deliberately recreate the scene, which results in Romana acting very woodenly, and the Doctor actually forgetting what he has to say next, even though he's already delivered the line at least three times already. Hilarity Ensues.
"Amy's Choice": This is Amy's opinion of Upper Leadworth's amateur dramatic society.

In the wrap-up movie to The Famous Jett Jackson, Jett swaps places with his superspy Show Within a Show character Silverstone. While Jett is struggling to survive in a world of spies and supervillains with zero training, Silverstone has to deal with being a (more or less) normal teenager in a small town, as well as an actor. Despite being a spy, Silverstone is utterly terrible at acting, causing his co-stars to burst into laughter, assuming he's just pretending.

The persona of the Twitter account @tips4actors is a deranged pretentious Large Ham with no understanding of reality who treats everything as Serious Business.

Some Suikoden games feature a theater minigame. Generally speaking, you can cast a good chunk of the Loads and Loads of Characters as any individual role in such works as Romeo and Juliet, or William Tell. The game will usually warn you which characters are bad actors... but then that's half the fun. Sometimes the acting is so bad that the set itself falls down.
Also plays as part of the plot in Suikoden V, during Sialeeds's plan to discredit the foppish Euram Barows.

This scene follows the similar commercial from the first movie, with the original three Ghostbusters reading very stilted lines, and Egon even looking down when he steps forward and back to make sure he steps on his floor mark. This was actually Harold Ramis making sure he hit his mark — the director thought it was so perfect he kept that take. This scene was later referenced in Evolution (also directed by Ivan Reitman), with the main characters doing a really badly acted commercial for Head & Shoulders (with one of them even holding the bottle upside down).

In Dunston Checks In, a maid's boss's boss wants her fired, but her boss likes her and knows his boss will never remember the incident when he shows up again next year, so for the meantime, the maid is on two weeks paid vacation. The joke is supposed to be that she's trying to seem sad in front of her boss's boss but is actually happy to be on vacation and is bad at acting. Interestingly enough, the actress seems to have been trying for Bad "Bad Acting" as a way of making the joke clear to the audience. What came out was more like bad "bad 'bad acting'".

In a very rare case where this trope is actually useful is during Hell's Kitchen. The final 3-4 chefs each have a turn running the pass, with the sous chefs (and sometimes the maitre'd) deliberately sabotaging the dishes to see if the contestants have picked up Ramsay's attention to detail. Whenever a contestant catches them out, Scott (normally) will show this trope, which is a clue that they've done something right.

Early episodes of the BBC radio comedy The Burkiss Way opened with "unsolicited testimonials from satisfied customers" in which people would explain how the titular correspondence course had changed their lives. These were often delivered with reading-off-the-cue-cards stiltedness; The female customers (all played by Denise Coffey) would always end by asking "Was that all right?", but the worst example is an illiterate man explaining how the course taught him to read:

South Park:
There's a scene in the Season 16 episode "I Should Have Never Gone Ziplining" that is done entirely in live-action and features young adults standing in for the main characters.
In the Season 19 episode "Tweek x Craig", the two titular characters stage a public breakup in response to Yaoi art involving them going around. Craig definitely fits this trope, with wooden delivery and his usual monotone. Tweek, on the other hand, does not, and takes it a little too far.

Tales of Zestiria has this happen - to fool a knight into thinking Rose and Sorey are married. Sorey of all people. Sorey is the worst by far, though Rose isn't much better. But at least she doesn't need to be puppeted by the Seraphim. And yet, the knight buys that despite already realizing they were lying before that. Mikleo looks halfway to banging his head against the nearest hard surface, it's that bad.
The Prequel Tales of Berseria has a similar thing happen, in this case Velvet has to pretend to be Magilou's apprentice and then act like a dove. Her reaction makes it clear she knows how bad her acting is.

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel: In "Vote For Kennedy, Vote for Kennedy", when Sophie Lennon is called upon to interview people with rheumatoid arthritis during the MDA telethon, she switches rapidly between sympathetic and humorous modes, and makes little to no effort to conceal the transitions. After taking a moment to operatically moan in sorrow for the poor victims ("ARRRRR-THRITISSS!"), she drops her facade and sorts through her note cards again. Sophie Lennon, it should be noted, is a classically-trained actress with a passion for legit theater who got pushed into this character of a "fat Apron Matron", so safe to say she's just going through the motions here.

Homestar Runner
Frequently done by the characters when they're given a script to read.
The tutorial of Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People is full of Bad "Bad Acting", with Strong Sad and Bubs reading their lines with all the pathos of a plank of wood, occasionally broken up with complaints about the awful, awful script.
The Dangeresque installments are full of terrible acting, ranging from "passable but untrained" (Marzipan, the King of Town), "trying but incompetent" (Strong Bad, Homestar), "not trying at all" (Strong Sad, Bubs), "utterly abysmal" (Coach Z), and "hasn't realized he's in a movie" (Senor Cardgage). Homestar finally breaks this trend in "Dangeresque: Puppet Squad - the Hot Jones Hi-Jack!" as Stingy Relenque, going over the top as a Decemberween-themed bad guy, though he still breaks character twice.
A DVD bonus toon opens with the King of Town on stage, reading from a cue card in an extremely forced manner, and giving a reaction after the line is read indicating that he didn't even know what he was reading until after he read it. This bit of bad acting is justified when the viewer gets to see the cue card... and Homsar is holding it upside-down.
The Strong Bad Email'' "big white face" involves Strong Sad thinking that Strong Bad will do something nice for him. He decides to "wait someplace inconspicuous and act none the wiser" when, in fact, he is in plain sight and clearly showing that he knows Strong Bad is up to something.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer:
The painful rendition of Oedipus Rex by the main characters for a mandatory talent show in the first-season episode "The Puppet Show". They go for three different bad-acting styles: Buffy is wooden and expressionless, Xander is over-the-top and hammy, and Willow is terrified into muteness until she runs offstage.
Nice-girl Willow trying to pass as her evil vampire counterpart in the third-season episode "Doppelgangland". ("I'm a bloodsucking fiend! Look at my outfit!")
Also in "Doppelgangland", not only does Willow try to pass herself off as the evil vampire Willow, but the vampire Willow tries to pass herself off as good Willow, so Cordelia will let her out of the book cage. "Look at me. I'm all... helpless." Hilarity Ensues.
A variant: a robot (in seasons five and six) designed to look like Buffy moving among her friends using such cunningly in-character lines as "Willow, you are my best friend. You're recently gay!" What annoys Buffy is that it manages to fool them for a while.
Faith trying to impersonate Buffy. This involves Sarah Michelle Gellar, who plays Buffy normally, in the role of playing Faith pretending to be Buffy. Includes rehearsing some lines Faith thinks Buffy would say before a mirror over and over, hilariously.
Spike pretending to be American so Initiative soldiers won't realize who he is. When he tries it again in a later episode, he gives up before he's even finished speaking. It becomes doubly hilarious when you realize James Marsters is actually American, so he's an American playing a Brit (badly) pretending to be an American.
Vi's Slayer recruitment commercial in Season 8, where she plays a typical suburban housewife-type who tells her husband (played by Andrew) about her sudden super strength and mystical Slayer dreams.

In the "Deja Vu" storyline in Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes, Kaz occasionally does wooden, silly and virtually unrecognizable impressions of various Metal Gear Solid characters when you call him. Apparently, when they asked Robin Atkin Downes to imitate the lines, he did them too well and got most of them bang-on, so they had to make him redo them all intentionally badly as Kaz himself is not much of an actor. This serves also to contrast to the True Ending where the game suddenly changes into a quiz hosted by Liquid Snake and Ocelot, all Other Darrined by Downes rapidly flicking between voices and all immediately recognizable.

Firefly:
Simon in "Jaynestown", when he's pretending to be a merchant looking to buy "mud". Revealed in The Movie to be more of a prep and motivation problem rather than skill - he manages to get into a top-secret government experiment slicker than snot on a doorknob in Serenity, because he was playing a role he was reasonably close to and had time to prep and his sister's life on the line, while in "Jaynestown" he was roped into it at the last second and had no idea what he was doing.
When Simon and River come back onto the ship at the end of "Safe", Jayne's attempt at welcoming them back (and covering up that he's been looting Simon's luggage) is all about this.
Also in "Trash", where at the end it's revealed that everything was played by the entire crew from the moment Mal released Yo-Saff-Bridge from the crate, Inara insists that the crew's acting skills were sub-par. In fact, if you watch closely, the crew's performances really weren't that great, with Kaylee lapsing into giggling fits a few times, and Wash being a bit of a Large Ham.

In High School Star Musical, when StarMyu is trying to show Hoshitani's bad acting, as in s1e2, or when he's practicing with Uozumi in s2e3, they tend to go for the "large ham" version of this trope. However, if you look closely, it's averted in quite a few places. Notice, for example, in s2e7, the difference between his rehearsing Alexis' Shadow's song and Lambert's song. In the former, he gives of completely the wrong emotion for the scene, whereas in the latter, he plays it right - motivated by his feelings for Otori.

The Strong Bad Email'' "big white face" involves Strong Sad thinking that Strong Bad will do something nice for him. He decides to "wait someplace inconspicuous and act none the wiser" when, in fact, he is in plain sight and clearly showing that he knows Strong Bad is up to something.

In Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, Palpatine does this when Obi-Wan and Anakin rescue him from his "kidnapping" (really a Secret Test of Character for Anakin) by Count Dooku. Naturally, Anakin doesn't pick up on it.

In the third season of Breaking Bad, Jesse and his buddies decide to take advantage of a Drug Addict Recovery Program with them all posing as concerned former users not so stealthily advertising their meth to the addicts. It predictably doesn't go very well ("there's like positivity goin' on and shit" as Pete puts it).

An episode of Green Acres, where the town puts on a play. Arnold, a pig, is considered to be a great actor and is sent to Hollywood. Considering the quality of the human acting, we don't blame them.

Petralka suffers from this in episode 10 of Outbreak Company. While the film she was in was a deliberate case of Stylistic Suck, Shinichi, the protagonist who also directed said film, leaves scenes in the film where she accidentally flubs her lines. She becomes incredibly embarrassed by it and tries to ban the film, despite the fact that the audience seems to be enjoying it.

On the Half in the Bag series, produced by RedLetterMedia, this is the acting style of both hosts (supporting characters generally play it straight as a deliberate contrast). Mike, however, is much better at it than Jay, to the point that he could be called Giftedly Bad if he wasn't doing it on purpose.

The Critic does that quite a bit. Jay Sherman is a movie critic who ends up seeing mostly bad films. Borderline case in The Pilot: Jay finally gets around to watching the movie his latest girlfriend is starring in. "I'll GIVE you a KISS alRIGHT. A kiss... OF DEATH!!!!!"

Friends:
Joey is quite the bad "bad actor" at times, varying from stilted delivery, to Soap Opera melodrama, to Reading the Stage Directions Out Loud. Also, his attempts to imitate foreign accents are terrible.
The above exchange is from "The One with the Mugging"; Hayes (a classically-trained actor whom the gang knows best from silly wireless service commercials) is played by Jeff Goldblum as a downplayed example of the trope. Hayes is overly earnest verging on Large Ham when he's performing (a playful exaggeration of Goldblum's own style for those in the know).
Phoebe and Ross also go overboard when they "act".

In Code Lyoko, Ulrich's performance in the production in "Laughing Fit". It's painfully bad acting despite his voice actress being a former Broadway star. It takes talent for someone that good to sound that bad.

In the first Major League, as the team is starting to turn things around they're pulled in for an American Express commercial. Everyone is horrible, either completely monotone, reading their lines slowly, awkwardly trying to snap their fingers, or just talking about "you know, your favorite... movies or... restaurant type places." The only one who seemed a natural in front of the camera was Willy "Mayes" Hayes who, in the sequel, had done an ACTUAL action movie in the off-season. It was every bad action cliche possible rolled into one and tanked at the box office. This may have been a reference to the fact that Willy's original actor, Wesley Snipes, didn't come back because he was doing other projects.

Frozen II:
Elsa is terrible at charades. Her movements cause Anna to just yell out the facial expressions she's making. When Anna discovers that the word was something that should've been easy to act out ("ice") and sees Elsa by the window with their mother's cape, she knows something's weighing on Elsa's mind.
Olaf recaps the events of the previous film to the Northuldra in a needlessly exaggerated manner. Everyone watches with confusion save for Mattias, who is emotionally invested in the story.

The student film from Haruhi Suzumiya. Most of the participants genuinely can't act, but one of them just talks like this normally. In Koizumi's case, it isn't the way he speaks that makes him a bad actor, it's the way he exaggeratedly gesticulates his way through every line he gets. Surprisingly, during the school festival when he's cast as one of the leads in Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead, his style of acting is oddly appropriate.

Star Trek: The Next Generation:
In "The Nth Degree", Barclay performs a play with Dr. Crusher. He is terrible at acting, stammering and forgetting lines. The audience, however, is too nice to criticize him and politely applaud the performance while saying things like "bravo" — except for Data.
In "Time's Arrow Part II" the Next Generation crew have traveled back in time to 1893 San Francisco. When the landlady Mrs. Carmichael demands their overdue rent they pretend to be actors rehearsing A Midsummer Night's Dream and encourage her to read the part of Titania. Captain Picard then praises her stilted performance, and Mrs. Carmichael is so flustered she forgets about the rent for another day.
In "Ménage à Troi", Lwaxana's plan for getting away from a Ferengi Daimon who'd kidnapped her is having Picard act like an insanely jealous lover with the guns of a Galaxy-class starship at his disposal. Picard starts out with "It's not over between us. You're mine, and I will not let you go," delivered like he's reading off a card with a gun to his head, before resorting to large gestures and lines from Shakespeare sonnets. And ordering Worf to warm up the weapons.
