Do you ever fold when only beaten by Quads or better?

Pretty simple poll inspired by the call in show this week. The question is this. Do you ever fold when facing a bet, and you only loose to Quads or better? Even if the line makes sense? For arguements sake we will say its a cash game and we are properly bank rolled for it.
I made a decision long ago in my early poker career that if I only loose to quads or better than they are just going to have to show me. Can't be afraid of monsters under the bed. So far its worked out fine. I think in live poker, even if the line makes sense, its far more likely that the opponent is making a goofy bluff, or over valuing a hand.

    I folded flopped top full in PLO a couple years ago. We were 1500bb deep and the villain fell asleep before the flop was dealt. He got really animated when he woke up and saw the flop. He made a click-back 4! on the flop and then shoved the turn (I still think it was a slight overbet but...). I showed my hand to get a read and eventually folded. He showed Trips with an A kicker.

    The operative word here is "ever." I can't imagine there could NEVER be a situation where they just have it. I mean, people sometimes make quads so I have to sometimes fold.

    ...but obviously very rarely.

    Usually not, HOWEVER I just listened to the Call-Ins show 143 and in that spot I think it's totally acceptable to fold OTR with A44X4 on t board with multi-way action (don't remember the other card). When she started explaining the hand I rolled my eyes and was ready to skip to the next hand. The river action and run out had me asking if I would bet fold top FH there or just check it. I'm 92% sure I like a check back in that spot.

    I think it's also important to never say never in poker and to dynamically adjust to the 'configuration' of the current hand/game.
