* ''{{Friends}}'' episode "The One With the Videotape": the B plot involves Monica and Chandler being given fake names by a couple they met. To illustrate that people do this, Joey introduces himself as "Ken Adams." The A plot involves a seductive story Rachel tells Ross, unaware Joey already told him the story. When questioned, Rachel sputters that she heard the story from a friend, who heard it from a guy named Ken Adams.

* Series/HowIMetYourMother episode "The Naked Man" has plot A with Barney and Ted trying out a new tactic called the The Naked Man (no points for guessing what they do) and plot B is Lily writing a list of 50 reasons to have sex, which she completes after trying The Naked Man tactic (2 out of 3 times people!)
* An episode of ''{{Castle}}'' had two teams of detectives competing (and betting) on who was going to solve their respective cases first, [[spoiler: they were forced to a draw when the two cases were related.]]

* Peter Lovesey's ''The House Sitter'': Peter Diamond investigates the murder of a profiler who was tracking a serial killer called The Mariner. Maybe The Mariner killed her, but maybe it was her jealous boyfriend. Well, [[spoiler:she was killed in a somewhat random act, not by The Mariner. And by the way, The Mariner ''is'' the boyfriend.]]
