* An episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' has Homer become a labor union boss, and eventually facing a bribe attempt from Mr. Burns. The offer's made with a great deal of InnocentInnuendo, however, and Homer mistakenly assumes Burns is coming on to him, leading to the following refusal (which Burns simply takes as Homer being above bribery and getting righteously indignant at the attempt):

* PlayedForDrama in TheReveal at the end of ''Literature/TheWayOfKings''. [[spoiler: Throughout the book, Dalinar has been having visions in which he thinks he's having {{Cryptic Conversation}}s with God. After a disaster caused by following what he thought was advice, he demands a direct answer in the next vision, and completely fails to get it. It turns out that the visions aren't conversations at all, they're a magical recording, an ApocalypticLog. God can't talk to him because GodIsDead and the end of the world is about to commence.]]

See also MultitaskedConversation. Not to be confused with OneSceneTwoMonologues, where no misunderstanding is possible because nobody listens anyway, with TwoScenesOneDialogue, where two separate intercut conversations contribute to exposition together, or with SustainedMisunderstanding, where only one party is missing the point. Related to DiggingYourselfDeeper. This may overlap with WhosOnFirst. If one side is doing it deliberately, it may be NonAnswer.
