* In the film of ''Theatre/GlengarryGlenRoss'', as Blake explains that the bottom two salesmen will lose their jobs at the end of the month, the chalkboard behind him tells the audience what the characters realize about that stipulation immediately: Roma has such an insurmountable lead on the leaderboard that the other three recognize they'll be fighting for just one spot. That's probably also why Blake went on with his "pep talk" despite Roma not being there.

* ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger'' has a lot of these foreshadowing what happens to [[spoiler:Bucky Barnes in [[Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier the sequel]]]], even not counting the overt plot buildup:
** [[spoiler:During the confrontation between Captain America and the Red Skull on the way out of the HYDRA base where he was being held prisoner, Bucky is staring in anger/horror not at the Skull but at [[MadScientist Zola]].]]
*** [[spoiler:His facial injuries from there on out are in the shape of the [[ElectricTorture electrical mind-erasing plates]] from ''[[Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier Winter Soldier]]''.]]
** [[spoiler:After he completely fails to catch Peggy's attention at a bar with the SuperSoldier-ified Steve:]]
--> [[spoiler:'''Bucky:''' [[FunnyAneurysmMoment I'm invisible. I'm turning into you. It's like a horrible dream]].]]
** [[spoiler:A Meaningful Foreground Event that just seems like part of the OnPatrolMontage: the conspicuously long moment he spends with his crosshairs on Steve's head before moving them to shoot a {{Mook}}.]]

* A few little things in ''Theatre/{{Hamilton}}'':
** If you look closely in "The Reynolds Pamphlet", you can see someone give a pamphlet to a disappointed-looking Phillip.
** In some performances, after Angelica and Laurens finish walking down the aisle in "Helpless" and separate to make way for the bride and groom, the two share a significant look, referencing Angelica's soon to be overt and Laurens's subtextual feelings for Hamilton.
** Angelica stays onstage after "The Schuyler Sisters", and watches the events of "Farmer Refuted" from the upper level.
