* Granny Weatherwax and Magrat put Nanny in the middle in ''Discworld/WitchesAbroad''.

* Granny Weatherwax and Magrat put Nanny in the middle in ''Discworld/WitchesAbroad''. Made funnier by the fact both feuding characters tend to get arch when they're annoyed, and Nanny doesn't bother.

* A surprisingly grim example comes from ''Literature/TheWolfhound'' series in form of a quirk of venn (FantasyCounterpart to slavic tribes) culture - they believe that a shared conversation binds just as strongly as a shared meal. If a male venn (including the titular hero) is giving you this trope, or the SilentTreatment, it means he's seriously considering killing you.

* ''{{Spacetrawler}}'' has a variant where it's less about refusing to speak, and more about recruiting the third party to bolster their argument, and the third party is an ExtremeDoormat.

* ''Series/NewTricks'': In "Ghosts", a spat between Gerry and Steve over a missing sausage roll escalates to the point where Gerry is refusing to acknowledge Steve's existence, and starts forwarding all of his comments to him through Sasha and Danny. Sasha and Danny are only too quick to point out how silly the whole thing is.

* In ''WesternAnimation/XiaolinShowdown'', Raimundo and Kimiko do this through Omi once. Since they were right next to each other at the time, they directly respond to one another while keeping up the TellHimImNotSpeakingToHim charade, leaving naive Omi to politely try to send the message at each interval.

* In ''WesternAnimation/XiaolinShowdown'', Raimundo Clay and Kimiko do this through Omi once. Since they were right next to each other at the time, they directly respond to one another while keeping up the TellHimImNotSpeakingToHim charade, leaving naive Omi to politely try to send the message at each interval. It ends with Raimundo telling Omi to tell them ''both'' that they're giving him a headache.
