* ''Fanfic/IAmNOTGoingThroughPubertyAgain'': After seeing his daughter come home worried, Hiashi decided to have an incredibly awkward heart-to-heart with Naruto. Hiashi thought they were talking about Naruto and Hinata's more [[{{Polyamory}} unconventional]] romantic practices, while Naruto ([[spoiler:more specifically the Naruto from the beginning of the series inside his adult body]]) thought they were talking about the fact that he woke up in bed naked next to Hinata.

* ''Series/TheFlash2014'' has this throughout Season 3 whenever Barry talks to Savitar. Whenever he is asked who he is, Savitar responds with "I am the future, Flash." Although Barry takes this as a boast from Savitar about how powerful and influential he is in the future, he eventually realizes that [[spoiler:the actual quote is "I am the Future Flash." Savitar is really a future version, or more specifically a time remnant, of Barry and that [[SarcasticConfession he's been giving away his identity for months.]]]]

* In ''Disney/TheRescuersDownUnder'', Bernard tries to propose to Bianca, but misplaces the ring. While he looks for it, Bianca receives word of the mission to Australia, and when Bernard returns and tries to propose again, she thinks he's talking about the mission and accepts. He is delighted, but is perplexed that she wants to do it now, and that she only needs to wear khaki shorts and hiking boots.
-->'''Ms. Bianca''': Bernard, did you talk to Francois?\\
'''Bernard''': Ah, yes, but uh.. there's... there's something I want--\\
'''Ms. Bianca''': I know exactly what you're going to say. Francois told me all about it.\\
'''Bernard''': He did? How, how... how did he-\\
'''Ms. Bianca''': Oh, it doesn't matter, I think it's a marvelous idea.\\
'''Bernard''': You do? I mean, you... you really want to?\\
'''Ms. Bianca''': I don't think it's a matter of wanting, it's a matter of duty.\\
'''Bernard''': D-duty? I... I never thought of it, well, umm... all right.... all right. How does... how does next ah-April sound to you?\\
'''Ms. Bianca''': Heavens, no! We must act immediately, tonight!\\
'''Bernard''': Tonight? But, but, ah.. wait! ''[cuts to them walking down into the headquarters of the Rescue Aid Society]'' Uh, Bianca, this is so sudden, I mean, don't you at least need a gown or something?\\
'''Ms. Bianca''': No, just a pair of khaki shorts, and some hiking boots.\\
'''Bernard''': Hiking boots???
* ''WesternAnimation/HowToTrainYourDragon'': Hiccup thinks his father has found out about Toothless, his father is actually trying to congratulate him on doing well in dragon training. Things get awkward.
* A very good one happens in the first ''WesternAnimation/{{Shrek}}'' movie when Shrek overhears Donkey's conversation with Fiona about [[spoiler:her turning into an ogre at night. Because he hears only part of the conversation, when she says, "Who could love such a hideous, ugly beast?", he thinks she's referring to him.]] The confrontation he has with her the next day is two different conversations:
-->'''Fiona:''' You heard what I said?\\
'''Shrek:''' Every word!\\
'''Fiona:''' But I thought you'd understand!\\
'''Shrek:''' Oh, I understand! Like you said, "who could love such an ugly beast"?\\
'''Fiona:''' ''[stricken]'' ...But I thought that wouldn't matter to you.\\
'''Shrek:''' Yeah, well, it does!
** The subtext makes sense from either viewpoint, but Shrek's viewpoint makes Fiona's responses sound offensive, and vice versa. This results in [[ThirdActMisunderstanding a huge misunderstanding]].
** The ''inverse'' of this (a case of One Conversation, Two Dialogues) happens in an early scene in WesternAnimation/Shrek2. As Shrek and Fiona approach Harold and Lillian, both Shrek and Harold argue with their respective spouses, and the dialogue strings together like so:
--->'''Harold''': ''(Waving while nervously addressing Lillian)'' Who on earth are they?
--->'''Lillian''': ''(Also waving)'' I think that's our little girl.
--->'''Harold''': That's not little, that's a really big problem! Wasn't she supposed to kiss Prince Charming and break the spell?
--->'''Lillian''': Well, he's no Prince Charming, but they do look- ''(Cut to Shrek)''
--->'''Shrek''': Happy now? We came, we saw them. Now let's go before they light the torches...
--->'''Fiona''': They're my parents!
--->'''Shrek''': Hello? They locked you in a ''tower''!
--->'''Fiona''': Hey! That was for my own- ''(Cut)''
--->'''Harold''': Good! Here's our chance! Let's go back inside and pretend we're not home!
--->'''Lillian''': ''(Grabbing Harold's arm and forcing him to keep walking)'' Harold! We have to be-
--->'''Shrek''': Quick! While they're not looking, we can make a run for it!
--->'''Fiona''': Shrek, stop it! Everything's going to be-
--->'''Harold''': -a disaster! There is no way-
--->'''Fiona''': -you can do this.
--->'''Shrek''': But I really...
--->'''Harold''': Really...
--->'''Lillian''': Really...
--->'''Shrek''': Don't...
--->'''Fiona''': Want...
--->'''Lillian''': To...
--->'''Shrek''': Be...
--->''(The four of them are now face-to-face)''
--->'''Harold and Shrek''': Here...

** They have a conversation at the end of ''Discworld/FeetOfClay'' where she thinks he's asking her to stay with him and stay in the city, but he's actually asking her if she'd like to volunteer at a museum with him. Her feelings are briefly hurt when he says he just assumed she'd say yes but it's all the same to him if she doesn't and she shouldn't think he'll lose sleep over it, before she realizes that they're having two different conversations.

** Jack prides himself on his ability to hold two conversations in his office, one with the person in the office and one with the person on the phone, by giving a response that answers both questions. In one episode, he does this with Liz, informing her beforehand that he can only give advice that works for both conversations. In another, he walks one romantic interest to the elevator as another (who is unaware of the first) arrives in the adjacent car. He addresses them both:
-->'''Jack''': 'Aloha' means hello and goodbye. So, aloha.
-->'''Nancy''' and '''Avery''', in unison: What?

A common scenario in comedies. Expect one of the 'conversations' to be sex-related. Similar to OutOfContextEavesdropping, but with the overhearing party actually being a participant. MistakenConfession is a possible outcome if the conversation is an interrogation. The technical term in real life is "double illusion of transparency". This can also happen when a question is answered with a seemingly unrelated answer until one thinks about interpretation.
