* ''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.

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.

to:

* 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.

* Nations that do not have normal diplomatic relations for some reason (a shooting war, a really chilly cold war, one or both of them not officially recognized as a legitimate government by the other) generally work around the problem by conducting necessary negotiations and business through a third party.

* On ''WesternAnimation/BeatBugs'', Walter and Jay put Buzz through this in "I Call Your Name." It doesn't last long because Crick and Kumi observe what is happening and devise a plan to try to get them back together.
