* [[ZigzaggedTrope Zigzagged]] in ''Film/TheApartment''. In the film's last scenes, Miss Kubelik leaves Sheldrake on New Year's Eve and runs to Baxter's apartment - but she's just hurrying to 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.

* Parodied, like everything else, in ''Film/NotAnotherTeenMovie''. Jake reaches Janie as she's about to get on the airplane and tries to stop her by plagiarizing lines from ''Film/ShesAllThat'' and ''Film/PrettyInPink''. After getting called out on it by the [[Creator/MollyRingwald flight attendant]], Jake instead tells Janie she should get on the plane since their relationship probably won't survive them going to separate colleges anyway. Janie incorrectly believes he's stealing from ''Film/TheKarateKid'' and forgives him, and they kiss and make up in the airport.

& 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.

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!
