Added DiffLines:

* Played with in ''VideoGame/Payday2'' in the "Beneath The Mountain" Heist. Played with because you're in an airlock, '''not''' an elevator, but in which you're put in an akward situation where neither you, or the rest of the crew, can really do anything while inside. The only thing you '''can do''' is stock up on ammo and Patch up wounds and wait for the second airlock door to open. Bear in mind that there are SWAT teams on both sides of the airlock doors, so standing in the middle of a Loud heist is a strange thing to endure.
-->'''Locke:''' Any second now!..(beat)...Know any jokes?

* In the ''WesternAnimation/WanderOverYonder'' episode "The Day," when Sylvia attempts to escape Hater's ship with a [[HeavySleeper completely passed-out Wander]]. In a burst of inspiration she dresses him up as one of Hater's minions and pretends he's leading her to the prison. Everything goes pretty smoothly until she gets to the elevator and finds herself joined by [[TheDragon Commander Peepers]]
[[/folder]], who starts a conversation with the disguised Wander, forcing her to puppet him like a ventriloquist's dummy.

* ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}}'': The hotel elevator scene during their very first outing. Although their dialogue is completely ordinary, their Proton Packs -- backpack-mounted nuclear accelerators -- do the job for them.

* ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration''. In "Lessons", Captain Picard finds himself DuetBonding with a female officer Nella Daren. The relationship turns romantic, and after their first kiss they're in the turbolift discussing their love of music when someone else enters. Picard turns to the front and when Nella tries to continue the conversation, formally addresses Nella by her rank instead of her name, leaving the turbolift at the first opportunity. He apologises for this afterwards.

* Tonraq (Korra's father) has one such moment in Season 3 of ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'', when he's on an elevator with Zuko, Eska and Desna, the reason being that the ensuing conversation reveals that he's the only person on that elevator that has not tried to kill the Avatar in the past.

** This is apparently a common enough behavior from Gibbs that at one point a character comments upon "finally getting to see Gibb's 'office' in person" after being waylaid for one of those elevator conversations.
