* Obi-Wan's brief meeting with Jango Fett in ''StarWars: [[AttackOfTheClones Episode 2]]'', to the point that Boba Fett's origin story contains a comparison between that conversation and a swordfight.

-->'''Lola''': Same adorable sense of humor. And I'm so glad to see that you've not only kept your GORGEOUS figure, but you've added SO MUCH to it!

-->'''Lola''': Cute angel. So do tell. How does it feel to be back, after being away SO LONG?
...
-->'''Marina''': You will always be my oldest, OLDEST friend.

* Similarly, the 1982 film of ''Literature/EvilUnderTheSun'' contains these exchanges from Daphne Castle (Maggie Smith) and Arlena Marshall (Diana Rigg):
--> '''Daphne Castle:''' Arlena and I are old sparring partners.
--> '''Arlena Marshall:''' Hello, Daphne.
--> '''Daphne:''' Oh, it's been years.
--> '''Arlena:''' A little time, yes.
--> '''Daphne:''' Years. Arlena and I were in the chorus of a show together. Not that I could ever compete. Even in those days, she could always throw her legs up in the air higher than any of us. [[ReallyGetsAround And wider.]]
--> '''Arlena:''' Kenneth, this is such a surprise! When you told me of an island owned by a quaint little landlady, I had no idea it was Daphne Castle.
--> '''Kenneth Marshall:''' ''(embarrassed)'' Er, yes, quite. Daphne, I wonder if we could go to our rooms. It's been a long journey.
--> '''Daphne:''' Oh, certainly. ''(rings the bell, and calls out)'' Andreas! ''(no response)''
--> '''Arlena:''' If you're short-staffed, Kenneth can easily carry the bags.
--> '''Daphne:''' They'll be brought up in a minute! Do have a good, long, peaceful rest, Arlena.
** Later, during that evening's cocktail gathering:
--> '''Arlena:''' ''(making a grand entrance)'' Oh my, I'm the last to arrive!
--> '''Daphne:''' [[DoubleEntendre Have a sausage, dear.]] You must be famished, having to wait all that time in your room.

* ''VideoGame/MinecraftStoryMode'': Whichever hero you didn't pursue at the end of ''The Order of the Stone'' will have a tense conversation with you in ''Assembly Required''. If Jesse doesn't try to diffuse the tension, the conversation takes a passive aggressive turn.

* ''GilmoreGirls'' features it fairly often, particularly when Emily is on-screen. One episode has Lorelai trying to warn Luke about it, but he insists he can take care of himself. After dinner, he declares to Lorelai in astonishment: "I could only thank her! She insulted everything about me and ''I thanked her''!"

* ''TheGoldenGirls'' is based around this trope. Fortunately, most of this (at least among the main characters) falls under BrutalHonesty.
* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Since much of the show is about medieval political intrigue, many scenes ooze with this trope (when they don't [[{{Gorn}} ooze with blood]] [[{{EverybodyHasLotsOfSex}} or other fluids]], of course). Example:
