* Creator/ChrisFarley and Creator/DavidSpade, which was endearing when the friendship didn't border on childish possessiveness. They were undoubtedly best friends, but they could get into some pretty fierce fights, both verbal and physical. On the set of ''Film/TommyBoy'', they would sometimes go for hours without talking to each other, talk to each other through the director, etc. And when Rob Lowe -- who said that they acted like an old married couple -- got thrown into the mix... Well, let's just say that Chris's reaction to their "buddies' bar night" was of epic {{Yandere}}sque proportions. David got so fed up with Chris hounding him on the subject that he threw his Diet Coke on him, to which Chris responded by ''[[DisproportionateRetribution throwing David into a wall and down the stairs]].''

* [[TheStoic Asher]] and [[ManicPixieDreamGirl Eliza]] in ''Literature/SomeoneElsesWar''. Respectively sixteen and fourteen.
* The relationship of Christine Taylor and her brother Lee's high school friend Dayton Nickles when she comes back to the Indian reservation when she contracts a terminal illness in Michael Dorris' ''Literature/AYellowRaftInBlueWater''.
* The entirety of [[TheDresdenFiles Harry Dresden and Karrin Murphy's]] professional relationship and friendship is rooted in this trope. Jim Butcher once mentioned to a fan that he even thought their eventual hookup was due to this trope, as Harry loved annoying Murphy even in the very first book long before either of them realized they had feelings for each other.

* [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] in ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneyDualDestinies'', because Edgeworth and Phoenix have finally hit that stage. Bobby Fullbright even points out that they're a good illustration of the phrase "close enough to argue". In their brief appearance in court together, they don't so much argue over facts as quibble about interrupting each other:

** In [[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E9ForestOfTheDead "Forest of the Dead"]], one of several arguments between the Doctor and River Song is interrupted by a character remarking that they're "squabbling like an old married couple". [[spoiler:Naturally, ''they are'', in fact, married]].
