& Invoked ''and'' lampshaded in the LGBT comedy ''The Mostly Unfabulous Social Life of Ethan Green'', where Ethan realizes at the last minute he has to stop his ex's wedding because they actually are meant for each other, even though Ethan has been pushing him away. Fortunately, Leo's would-be husband has a string of ridiculous rituals he wants performed as prologue to the ceremony, allowing Ethan to get there in time ... almost.

* A variant [[ZigzaggedTrope Zigzagged]] in ''Film/TheApartment'', where Fran ''Film/TheApartment''. In the film's last scenes, Miss Kubelik leaves Sheldrake on New Year's Eve and runs to Baxter's apartment after midnight on New Year's Eve, not knowing he's packing - but she's just hurrying to leave.him, rather than running against any particular thing. Then, as Kubelik's almost there, she hears a noise suspiciously similar to a gunshot - and runs faster... only to see Baxter with an opened bottle of champagne. In the end it turns out he ''was'' going to leave the titular apartment for good.

But as [[RuleOfDrama Drama]] would have it, the road back to romantic bliss is full of obstacles. There's bad weather or bad traffic or some other impediment that makes it impossible for her to get all the way there in one smooth cab ride. But Alice is determined. She will, she ''must'' get to the train or plane or other conveyance that's about to take Chuck out of her life forever, before it's too late!

Alice and Bob have become involved. There's chemistry. Sparks. But, for whatever reason, Alice has turned her back on this budding romance. Sometimes it's because she's convinced "we're too different" or "we come from different worlds" or some other rationalization that it'll never work out. Sometimes there's another person in the picture, and Alice feels honor bound to go through with the lesser romance.

Sometimes there's another person in the picture, and Alice feels honor bound to go through with the lesser romance.

Chuck, also being honorable, straightens his shoulders and prepares to deal with losing Alice to the circumstances or bad luck leading to this situation. But because it's too painful for one or both of them for him to stay around and remind them both of what might have been, he must leave. Fortunately, there's usually some job opportunity in another city, or he was only visiting this one temporarily anyway.

Then Alice suddenly has an epiphany: she really does love Chuck too much to not be with him! She loves him more than Bob, who she was going to marry instead. She loves him more than her job, or whatever other situation had cropped up that made her think she had to choose it over Chuck. But ...he's about to leave because she shot him down! If she doesn't turn around and get back to him ''right this minute'' he'll be gone, she'll have missed her chance, and she'll have what might have been haunting her forever.

So, newly inspired, Alice hops into a cab or some other mode of transportation to get her back to Chuck's arms as quickly as possible.
