* ''Series/TheOrville'':
** When the away team discovers the elevator leading the bridge of a massive colony ship in "If The Stars Should Appear", Ed tries to make small talk to pass the time. Kelly can't let it slide.
-->'''Kelly:''' A thousand light years from Earth, and you're still awkward in the elevator.
** This is a RunningGag in "Cupid's Dagger" in which Ed and Kelly are constantly interrupted in the elevator of the ''Orville'' by the entrance of a low-level crew member who seems bent on some sort of elevator music being installed. It's eventually made his project and towards the end of the episode, when he walks in yet again after the music is now playing, Kelly shouts at him, wondering if he just does nothing but ride the elevator all day.

** [[Series/Daredevil2015 Matt Murdock]], Series/JessicaJones2015, Series/LukeCage2016, and [[Series/IronFist2017 Danny Rand]] have just found themselves under attack [[WorkingTheSameCase when their separate investigations into the Hand lead to them all converging on Midland Circle Financials at the same time]]. After [[HallwayFight fighting off Elektra and a bunch of Alexandra's henchmen in the corridors]], they manage to all make it to the elevator to escape. While Matt, Luke and Danny are all catching their breath, Jessica looks around and quickly smashes the security camera in the ceiling.
** A non-elevator variant: later on, Matt, Luke and Jessica are riding the subway. Jessica pulls out a can of beer and chugs the entire thing down while Matt and Luke give her silent looks of confused amusement.

* A ''really'' uncomfortable moment occurs in the ''Series/StarTrekEnterprise'' episode "The Crossing" when Malcolm Reed is possessed by an alien wisp. While he's riding a turbolift with a female RedShirt, he comments in a creepy voice about how she's a female and he's a male. She wastes little time in de-boarding when the door opens.

** ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast'': Happens between the just-freed [[SelfDemonstrating/{{Magneto}} Erik]], [[ComicBook/{{Quicksilver}} Peter]], and [[CrowningMomentOfFunny the duct-taped guard]] in UsefulNotes/ThePentagon's elevator. Erik feels dizzy as the result of being carried by Peter in his SuperSpeed mode. Then Peter asks Erik whether he's done a serious crime, asks what crime he's done in annoying tone (which after Erik sheepishly answered, Peter expresses his awe to the duct-taped guard who responds in kind with his eyebrows as if he wanted to say "Told ya this guy is a bad news" to Peter), asks whether Erik know karate (which Erik sheepishly responds with [[Music/JamesBrown "I don't know karate but I know crazy"]]), asks whether Erik can control metal, and finally he tells Erik that [[MythologyGag his mom once knew a guy who could control metal]] (which Erik seems to [[OhCrap realize that this annoying boy might be his son]]).

* Inverted for ''Film/BigAssSpider'', where Alex and Jose use the ride to psych themselves up for the coming fight.



* In a DeletedScene from ''Film/TheDevilWearsPrada'', Miranda allows Andy to ride in the elevator with her, something she does not typically allow. Andy tries to break the ice by chatting awkwardly, before almost immediately realizing that ''this'' is why Miranda doesn't like to share the elevator with anyone.



* The Ben Carson movie, ''Gifted Hands'', has this. On his first day at work, he is the only colored person in the elevator, and the only one to give a cheery good morning to the other doctors. This doesn't stop him from saying good morning the next time, though.



* In ''Film/TheHungerGamesCatchingFire'', in contrast with the book (see ''Catching Fire'' below), it's clearly PlayedForLaughs. Johanna (played with BoisterousBruiser gusto) enters the elevator, compliments District 12's clothes while complaining about her own, starts stripping while asking Peeta to [[ZipMeUp zip her down]], and the duo's mentor Haymitch is on the scene as well to get impressed by her. That being said, only Katniss finds it uncomfortable. Peeta and Haymitch seem to enjoy it.



* Subverted in ''Film/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2014''. When the Turtles board an elevator to take them to the top of Eric Sach's tower, they stare ahead awkwardly at first, but then loosen up a when [[https://youtu.be/CTcy51kHDTM?t=38s Mikey starts beatboxing.]]



* In ''Film/{{Victoria 2015}}'', Sonne mentions this when he and Victoria enter an elevator.
-->'''Sonne''': Now you have to be very silent, you know, because nobody talks in Germany in an elevator. It's forbidden.

* Defied in the LightNovel version of ''[[LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya]]''. Kyon notes that Haruhi ignores "normal elevator etiquette" by talking to him while they wait. Knowing Haruhi, this is to be expected.
* ''Literature/TheHungerGames'': In ''Catching Fire'', the uninhibited Johanna Mason complains of the heat, [[NakedOnArrival strips]] [[NakedPeopleAreFunny naked]], and gets on an elevator with Peeta and Katniss. It turns out later that she was deliberately [[InvokedTrope invoking]] this trope to make Katniss uncomfortable.
