* In ''Literature/{{Mirabile}}'', Annie Jason Masmajean rescues Kelly Crafter Sangster from an enraged kangaroo rex despite personally preferring the rex, and Crafter Sangster goes out of her way to find a way to help Jason Masmajean so they can be even. Jason Masmajean is bemused by the whole thing, since as far as she's concerned she was just doing her job and Crafter Sangster doesn't owe her anything.

* Used and parodied in ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb''. Baljeet one day saved Buford's life, and thanks to "[[TitleDrop The Bully Code]]" becomes his slave for the rest of his life. Baljeet quickly becomes creeped out and annoyed by this [[LampshadeHanging "60's sit-com cliche"]], and spends the episode trying to settle the score. Eventually he's convinced that having someone follow his every whim isn't such a bad thing...at which point Buford saves his life, making them even.

Added DiffLines:

* Similarly to the Phineas & Ferb example above, the ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' episode "Spike at Your Service" has Applejack save Spike's life. Spike then reveals that thanks to the Noble Dragon Code, he has to serve her for the rest of his life. She quickly [[StopHelpingMe gets tired of his attempts to help her do everything]], and her requests for him to stop get ignored. Rainbow Dash suggests that Spike should be given a task so pointless and impossible that he quits, but that plan doesn't work either. Eventually, the ponies engineer a situation in which Spike has to rescue Applejack to make them even.

Alice does something for Bob (most often this is saving their life)... then later Bob returns the favour, and one or the other will say "That makes us even" or "I guess we're even".

A malicious variant is when Alice wrongs Eva (or at least Eva thinks they did), and when Eva gets her revenge, she will say "NOW we're even"
