* Alluded to in ''Film/{{Chicago}}'' when Velma Kelly describes her act with her sister -- which can't be done anymore because her sister is dead. Instead of only doing her half, Velma goes "I'd go --" and does her part, then goes "She'd go --" and does her sister's part.

* ''TenaciousDInThePickOfDestiny'': HeterosexualLifePartners JB and KG split up because they've been invited to a [[AllGuysWantSororityWomen sorority house party]]: KG wants to go, JB feels they should concentrate on their {{Quest}} to find the eponymous pick. At the party KG's talked into playing some of the songs he & JB have written, but he only knows the words for his parts (which are backup to JB). This doesn't go over well.
