* ''Series/{{Supernatural}}''. "Free To Be You And Me" has one, juxtaposing the temporarily separated Dean and Sam, with Dean doing his usual business of icing monsters intercut with Sam's attempts to hold down a normal job and life. In "Exile on Main Street", Dean has done the same, and scenes of his normal life are intercut with flashbacks.

** In "The Slice Girls", Dean having sex with a GirlOfTheWeek is intercut with a VictimOfTheWeek being murdered. [[InterplayOfSexAndViolence Turns out the two events are related]], so this also serves as {{foreshadowing}}.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'': In "Dipper Vs. Manliness", there's a montage showing on one hand Dipper [[TestosteronePoisoning training with the Manotaurs to become manly]], and Mabel "training" Grunkle Stan to ask Lazy Susan out. At several points in the montage, both trainings get quite similar (like Mabel [[HairReboot unsuccessfully]] shaving Stan's chest hair, followed by a Manotaur gluing hair to Dipper's barren chest). The music that plays might be appropriate for a HardWorkMontage, except that halfway through it starts simply describing the events on screen without worrying about rhyming until the end.
-->[...] Now you're gonna jump a crazy gorge.
-->Keep on shavin' that hairy uncle.
-->[[EvenTheSubtitlerIsStumped Uh... I don't really know what's happen in this part.]]
-->Your heart's on fire and the fire is in your heart!

* The season 4 episode of ''Series/HouseOfCardsUS'' that introduces Republican presidential nominee [[Creator/JoelKinnaman Will Conway]] uses this trope to contrast him from series protagonist and Democratic presidential nominee [[Creator/KevinSpacey Frank Underwood]]. Conway enjoys spirited “good morning” sex on the bathroom counter with Hannah, while Frank stands alone in front of a bathroom vanity filled with recovery medications as Claire peeks in from a cautious distance. After the quickie with his spouse, Conway goofs around with one of his adorable moppet children; meanwhile, a subdued Frank discusses with Claire the importance of staying focused on their political agenda instead of worrying about their personal relationship.
