* The ''{{Daria}}'' MusicalEpisode has [[{{Workaholic}} Helen]] and [[TheFashionista Quinn]] (a mother and daughter) sing "Don't They Know I Can't Leave Yet." It paints them as NotSoDifferent, each achieving a sense of self-worth through their respective obsessions.

* A rare print version of this trope pops up in ''ChronoCrusade''. In New York state, Rosette flops down on the grass and begins to sing a musical version of EdgarAllanPoe's poem ''Israfel''. In the middle of the song, the scene switches to San Fransisco, where her brother Joshua is singing the same song. Since this is the first time Joshua shows up in the present day (his previous scenes had either been flashbacks or only shown him in silhouette), the song is a clue that it's the same Joshua as it's mentioned he and Rosette sang together as children.

* The second verse of "At The Opera Tonight" from ''RepoTheGeneticOpera'' is a duet between the Repo Man and Blind Mag. The distance between them is not simply physical: while Mag sings about how she's made peace with her fate, Repo Man is raging and planning a bloodbath.

* An interesting example occurs in ''Theatre/TheMusicMan'', where the two leads are separated, and reprising back and forth between two songs ("76 Trombones" and "Goodnight, My Someone"), which work together as a duet.

* Played with in the original production of SpringAwakening: During "Don't Do Sadness/Blue Wind", Moritz and Ilse are shown to be in the same location and are clearly talking/singing to each other, but they are staged in a way that conveys distance and never look at each other, showing their conversational disconnect despite their physical closeness.
