Favorite Duets of Musical Theatre

What comes to mind when we think duet in musicals? We automatically think of ROMANCE. However, there are several other duets that have nothing to do with that at all. There are death, friendship, antagonist/protagonist, and child/parent duets, etc……So, what are some of my favorites?
