* The final episode of ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEED'' [[spoiler: has a DeadPersonConversation between the main character Kira and his ex-girlfriend Flay, who was just killed in front of him. The dialogue on first watch makes it seem as if they are holding a conversation about his regret over her death, but on second watch, it becomes clear that he's not even responding to what ''she'' is saying to him. WordOfGod is that this was intentional, as the scene was meant to illustrate what Flay wanted to tell Kira, but now never could, even though sadly he can't hear her because she's a ghost.]]

** In another episode, Stewie hears Meg's new "boyfriend", Ken, reveal that he is gay and has a crush on Meg's brother. Stewie is convinced that it's ''him'' he's talking about, though really it's Chris. Later, he and Brian, the latter of whom knowing the truth, have a conversation regarding the topic, and both think the other talker is referring to a different brother.

* A very good one happens in the first ''{{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 very much two different conversations:

* The ''KingdomHearts'' fanfic ''FanFic/TheRenegades'' features a chapter in which Axel and Larxene start a conversation in which tea is used [[DoubleEntendre as a euphemism for sex]], and the other Nobodies start joining in on the wordplay. Eventually, [[TheBigGuy Lexaeus]] enters the conversation, [[EntendreFailure and completely misinterprets their meaning]], remarking that there's probably enough tea to go around. The others burst into laughter while Lex blinks, confused.

* 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.
