* ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}} II'': Dana Barrett and Peter Venkman are enjoying a date out together when the remainder of the Ghostbusters team bursts into the restaurant rambling about ectoplasm in the city's underground and covered in a viscous, sticky substance (although, thank God, it's purple rather than white...) Venkman's response? "Boys! Boys! You're scaring [[{{Muggles}} the straights]]!" [[BlindIdiotTranslation In one country, this was straight-up subtitled as (translated back to English) "you're scaring the heterosexuals".]]

* Duchess sings "If you want to turn me on/Play your horn/Don't spare the tone/And blow a little soul into the tune" in the "Everybody Wants To Be A Cat" sequence of ''Disney/TheAristocats''. Despite her tone and the tom cats gawking over her, the lyrics aren't meant to seem sexual.

* ''Fun In Balloonland'': The naone nrrator during the 1965 Philadelphia Thanksgiving Day Parade uses the word "gay" to mean happy, and apparently has no other synonyms for it because she uses it about 50 times in the 35 minute segment.

* In ''FriendlyPersuasion'', a film set among Quakers in the 1860s, characters frequently tell each other how "pleasured" they are. Nowadays, the word "pleased" is used in that particular context. To be "pleasured" is [[ADateWithRosiePalms something else altogether]].
** The phrase "serve at one's pleasure" is still used formally in political and business contexts. Nowadays, though, it's nearly impossible to hear the term and not think of oral sex.
*** In the UK the legal term of art "serving at Her Majesty's Pleasure" has no such connotation; that said, it's less likely to refer to the indeterminate tenure of some public officials and more likely to be used as a euphemism for saying that someone has been locked up for who knows how long.

* When the title character of ''Film/{{Sabrina}}'' learns how to make a souffle, the teacher tells her and the other students, "The souffle, it must be gay. Gay like...two butterflies dancing the waltz in the summer breeze."
* "Dyke's Auto Camp" in ''Film/ItHappenedOneNight'' might elicit a few snickers today.
