* In [[Videogame/ShadowrunReturns Shadowrun: Hong Kong]] one optional run revolves around infiltrating [[TheCracker Is0bel]] through the staff area of a tech con with her disguised as a hotel staffer. Unfortunately, this involves some fast talking and Is0bel [[NoSocialSkills isn't too good even with regular conversations]], so the player character has to walk her through these conversations over the comms with a shaky connection. Eventually, Is0bel gets cornered by a manager as a con goer accosts the player, wanting into the booth they were using for communication. This is usually the part where things go sideways as the player has to juggle both conversations, but a successful social skill check has the player use a line that ends both conversations pretty well.

* ''LoadingReadyRun'' has [[http://www.escapistmagazine.com/videos/view/loadingreadyrun/1489-Wireless a three-way version with cell phones]], though it's not actually a "dialogue" as none of the three are actually talking to ''each other''. Kathleen is breaking up with a boyfriend, Graham is making a business deal, and Matt is talking to a friend about returning a defective product to the store. It's just the 3 halves of the conversations that we hear match up perfectly.

* The infamous elevator scene from ''VisualNovel/NineHoursNinePersonsNineDoors''. The elevator seemingly can go down to a part of the ship that is flooded. Naturally, June is worried she might get wet "down there."

** The most notable instance takes place in "A Midsummer Night's Dream", in which an actor asks Hamnet is proud of his father. Instead of answering the question, he laments how distant and aloof his father is, [[spoiler:much like Dream is to Orpheus]], only to hear the actor reply that he'd be proud if Shakespeare were his father.

* In ''Series/TheWire'', the MCU overhears Cheese on the wire talking about shooting a 'dawg' and feeling remorse about it. Bunk and [=McNulty=] end up interrogating Cheese, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AhIJkCrRSbE clearly thinking]] that 'Dawg' is someone's nickname. They show him photos of dead bodies and ask him which one is 'Dawg'. Cheese eventually tells them where he left 'Dawg' behind and says he's still, that is, unless the SPCA has gotten there first. This earns a FlatWhat from [=McNulty=]. We cut to Cedric Daniels and Rhonda Pearlman watching, realizing that they've gotten Cheese to crack. Then Bunk and [=McNulty=] step out.

*''Series/BoardwalkEmpire'':
**Frankie Yale will often claim he was "visiting a friend" as a euphemism for an assassination.
**In "Two Boats and a Lifeguard", Nucky takes Owen Sleater aside to question Owen about what he was doing during a time he was supposed to be on duty. Owen says that he was visiting an old friend. Nucky pointedly asks if that friend was from Ireland. This causes an OhCrap reaction from Owen, because while he ''did'' visit with (and kill) an acquaintance from Ireland that day, he also had sex with Margaret shortly thereafter and thinks Nucky has found out about the latter. Fortunately for Owen, Nucky clarifies that he's asking about the assassination and Owen gives a sigh of relief when Nucky brings up approaching the IRA for a business deal.

* Done in a totally non-comedic fashion in ''Film/ShutterIsland'' when Teddy Daniels finds George Noyce. [[spoiler:Noyce actually gives away the entire, cruel TwistEnding: that Teddy is actually [[TomatoInTheMirror Andrew Laeddis (who Teddy believes is responsible for his wife's death]]... [[ProphecyTwist and he's right)]], that he's an inmate of the asylum, and that the entire "investigation" is just a game for Teddy's benefit. Teddy, however, is so wrapped up in his delusions that he can't understand anything Noyce is saying (except for the bit about experiments in the lighthouse, which, ironically, are ''Noyce's'' delusions), and the audience is so trusting of Teddy's subjective point of view that they can't appreciate Noyce's words [[FridgeBrilliance until the movie's over]].]]
