When you have deja vu. Whether it be from a person, place or event. You have such a familiar feeling about it that it may have come from another life. Another time when you both promised to be there for each other. But, in this life, too much is in the way. There is no explanation other than... in another life (or time).
Becky: I feel such a strong connection to this person. Why is it so hard to just have a normal conversation?
David: Maybe you two were friends in another life

A way to say goodbye to somebody you don't expect to see again (in this lifetime).

Can be used positively, with emphasis on the prospect of seeing them again, albeit in another lifetime.

Also can be used negatively, with emphasis on the implication that you won't be seeing them again THIS lifetime.

Derived from the catchphrase of the character Desmond on the TV show LOST, who would frequently say, "I'll see ya in another life, brother"
Soldier 1 (wounded and dying): I don't think I'm gonna make it, man...
Soldier 2: Hang in there, buddy, I'm right here.

Soldier 1: I see the light... I'm going towards it...
Soldier 2 (crying): I'll see you in another life, man. Say hi to my brother for me.

Guy 1: Dude, come on, we've been best friends for 6 years, you can't seriously be THAT mad about me sleeping with your girl.
Guy 2: Yeah... you can fuck off. See you in another life, man.
