** actually, parts of almost all of the songs in the musical are somehow reprised or repeated in another way later.
* ''ComicBook/FunHome's musical adaption has a somber echo in the song "Telephone Wire" from "Party Dress" As Allison semi-quotes a line that she said when she was 9 as a 43 year old woman recollecting the memory of her and her Dad's last drive before [[spoiler: he kills himself.]]

* Cloud's comments about the Midgar train early in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' - "No-one lives in the slums because they want to. It's like this train. It can't go anywhere except where its rails take it." It's profound at the time, though, to some degree, since it's the first emotional thing we hear Cloud say; Barret, TheLancer, points this out. For him, especially, it sticks, and a mangled version becomes his catchphrase - "There ain't no getting off of this train we're on!"
** It's eventually used by the rest of the cast to complete Cloud's recovery from HeroicBSOD. Except Cait Sith, who viciously mangles it: "This train we're on ain't got no stops!"
* In ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia'', shortly after the Angel Remiel tells Collete that he is her father, she gets a little confused about who she is and what that means for her. In response to this, Lloyd tells Collete, "It doesn't matter who your father is, you're still you". Much later in the game, while Lloyd is distraught after finding out that [[spoiler: [[DoubleAgent Kratos]] [[LukeIAmYourFather is his father]]]], Collete delivers that same line right back to him. It was just the thing that Lloyd needed to snap out of it.
** In a similar vein, there's the cryptic "Don't die, Lloyd," that Kratos gives right before you head to the Tower of Salvation. It's a hint that, [[spoiler: despite his apparent EvilAllAlong reveal, he may still be on your side.]] It's echoed in the final cutscene, and this time it's a TearJerker, and it's extended: "Don't die before I do, Lloyd...[[spoiler: my son.]]"

-->'''Lightning:''' But you won the championship three times! Look at those trophies!
-->'''Doc Hudson:''' ''You'' look. All I see is a bunch of empty cups.
** And near the end of the climax, when Lightning forfeits the cup to help The King finish the race.
-->'''The King:''' You just gave up the Piston Cup, you know that?
-->'''Lightning:''' Ah, this grumpy old racecar once told me something: It's just an empty cup.
