* At the beginning of the musical ''Theatre/IfThen'', Elizabeth has to make a choice about which friend to go with.
-->'''Elizabeth''': Tell me, how can it make any difference? / How can it matter at all? / Why do I always make such an event / out of something so small?
**And the rest of the musical covers two alternate timelines that show the outcomes of each decision. Needless to say, the outcomes are ''very'' different.

* The play ''Literature/AuntieMame'' has a prologue in which Edwin Dennis (in voiceover) dictates his will leaving his only son and sole heir in the care of Mame Dennis, "that crazy sister of mine." The music becomes facetious as he adds, "Since I keep myself in splendid physical condition through daily workouts at the Chicago Athletic Club, I am confident that these provisions will not go into force or effect for many years." The music then suddenly becomes ominous, and the will is followed by a newspaper headline from the very next day: "BUSINESSMAN DROPS DEAD IN STEAMROOM OF CHICAGO ATHLETIC CLUB."

* The StageToScreenAdaptation of ''Film/TheProducers'' has a song about it being bad luck to say "good luck" on opening night. Therefore, everyone wishes Franz to "break a leg" as he dashes off to the show. It's just his luck that a moment later he literally breaks his leg.
