When one partner has to go somewhere and the other wants more sex. Often used to show just how devoted a character is to the task at hand -- they're refusing ''sex'' in order to get on with it -- while their SatelliteLoveInterest only has [[ImAManICantHelpIt one thing]] on [[AllWomenAreLustful the brain]]. That, or it just serves to suggest the character [[SexGod is that good in bed]]. Alternately, it can lead to CoitusUninterruptus.

A common, more chaste use is when one character gets up in the middle of the night to contemplate something (Common in mystery and UrbanFantasy stories) and their significant other wakes up and asks their beloved to come back to bed, so they can sleep.

[[folder: Anime ]]


* In ''Anime/MacrossPlus'', after Isamu and his co-worker/friend-with-benefits Lucy have had sex, Isamu is woken up by a call. He answers it but Lucy tells him to go back to be with her so he hangs up. The call was from [[spoiler:his ex-girlfriend Myung, who has caught quite a DistressBall and needs urgent help. Guld ends up saving her instead]].
** Actually, it's more complicated. [[spoiler: The call was ''from Sharon, impersonating Myung'', who back then was trapped in a fire. She was attempting to either bring Myung and Isamu together, instigate a fight between Isamu and Guld when the both showed up to save her, or kill Myung outright; Sharon was the one who overloaded a circuit and started the fire that put Myung in danger, then attempted to kill both Myung and Guld when Isamu didn't show up.]]

[[folder: Comics ]]

* In ''The Secret History of ComicBook/TheAuthority'', Jenny Sparks is reminiscing about the fateful night where she saved Swift from the Nazis (and ruminating on how [[AuthorFilibuster Bill Clinton is exactly like Adolf Hitler]]) when Swift comes down and tells her to come back to bed.

[[folder: Fan Works ]]

* In [[http://www.fimfiction.net/story/106068/1/relax/intimacy Relax]], the protagonist tries to get out of bed when his session with the prostitute expires. [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming She lets him spend the night with her anyway.]]

[[folder: Film ]]

* Some of the earlier ''Film/JamesBond'' films.
** ''Film/FromRussiaWithLove'': Bond's PostSex cuddling with Sylvia Trench is interrupted by a phone call from headquarters.
** ''Film/TheSpyWhoLovedMe'':
-->'''M''': Moneypenny, where's 007?
-->'''Moneypenny''': He's on a mission, sir. In Austria.
-->'''M''': Tell him to [[DoubleEntendre pull out]]. Immediately.
-->[Bond receives message]
-->'''Girl''': What happened? Where are you going?
-->'''Bond''': Sorry. Something came up.
-->'''Girl''': But, James, I need you.
-->'''Bond''': So does England!
*** This is a [[SubvertedTrope Subversion]], though, in that said girl is a KGB informant, who goes on to inform KGB assassins of Bond's position (er, location).
* Implied in ''Film/RearWindow'', where a newlywed couple move into an apartment close to the protagonists. They close their blinds, and are not seen for a while. After a few days, the man is seen leaning out of the window, and his wife calls him back.
* Harrison Ford's character pretends to do this in ''Film/{{Frantic}}'' to stop a pair of Mossad agents roughing up the French girl who's helping him (actually Ford had just sneaked in the window).
* ''Film/TheCrazies'' (1973). Happens as a MoodWhiplash after the opening scene where a man burns his family to death. The two protagonists, a volunteer firefighter and a nurse, tease each other about ignoring the ringing phone and blaring fire siren.
* In ''TheIncredibles'', when Bob is heading to work his wife pulls him back once he's already ''out the door'', using her elastic arms. This is presumably as close [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar as a family film could get]] to hinting at Elastigirl "[[PowerPerversionPotential using her powers in the bedroom]]".
* ''DrStrangelove'' - General Turgidson is called to the War Room, leaving his girlfriend protesting - in keeping with the overall theme of the movie he tells her "You just start your countdown, and ol' Bucky'll be back before you can say 'BLAST OFF!'"
* In a flashback to when he was Lord Marshall of the Necromongers, ''Film/{{Riddick}}'' is shown drinking on his throne, ignoring the allure of four naked women in his bed. When we see the cold eyes of his RoyalHarem, [[LonelyAtTheTop we understand why]].

[[folder: Literature ]]

* A combination of the two uses occurs in ''[[XWingSeries The Bacta War]]'', with Corran being called back to bed by Mirax while he's up late at night, worrying over what he's gotten them all into (at the end of the last novel, he resigned his commission because the politicos wouldn't let him go after the BigBad, and the rest of the squadron followed).
** This also occurs near the start of ''[[Literature/JediAcademyTrilogy I, Jedi]]'', before Mirax gets kidnapped and Corran is wondering if he should accept Luke's offer to join the academy after all.
