* ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'': If you romanced Ashley in ''VideoGame/MassEffect1'', then romanced Tali in ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'' and bring them both along on the Geth Dreadnought mission, things get, um... [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lYhG3AjMthU tense]]. If you romanced Liara then Tali, Liara mentions that Tali's suit has [[ADateWithRosiePalms a built-in vibrator]] if you bring Liara along (Tali being required if she's alive).

Altetnately, if you commit to Tali beforehand, both women quickly realize it's a fight that neither wants and instead share eager anticipation in fighting Geth.

* On ''Series/HomeImprovement'', Jill meets Tim's ex-girlfriend Stacey, whom Tim never officially broke up with. Jill is less than pleased by this news, but she and Stacey get along well enough that it makes Tim nervous.
* ''Series/Suddenly/Susan'', when the titular Susan meets her new boyfriend's ex when she comes by the house to pick up their children. They get along fine, but Susan is unnerved when she notices how much they resemble each other. Her fears prove well-founded--a few episodes later, she stops by the house and finds the woman there, the early morning hour and the SexyShirtSwitch that she's pulling making it obvious that they slept together. Poor Susan realizes that she's nothing more than a ReplacementGoldfish and that he clearly is still in love with his ex and ends things.

* In ''High Profile'', one of the Literature/JesseStone novels, Jesse's ex-wife Jenn winds up being guarded by Jesse's current squeeze Literature/SunnyRandall after she's assaulted, and much to Jesse's relief they get along quite well and without the hostility this trope tends to result in. Sunny is also the person to [[spoiler:convince Jenn that she needs to get therapy after it's revealed that she wasn't actually assaulted, just threatened with it, and that she's still not over Jesse]].
