I think they are referring to the cake that has mysteriously disappeared...
I thought they were talking about love... it's inside one of us... he's asked us a thousand times.
Ok this is driving me crazy. Is there any... ANY abstract usage of this???? At ALL?
One of us has the courage. Is it in him or in me?
Easier to find an example if you're not Hollywood brainwashed
I heard in a song once: "יש בי ים של וייבז להפגין אהבה" "I have in me a sea of vibes to show love" This might be one of the more abstract uses you're talking about. בי (in me) could easily be switched out with בתוכי (inside of me).

OR my favourite... From the Discworld book series by Terry Pratchett (side note : as a Jeopardy answer, the question would be what book series did Rowling steal from to write Harry Potter)....

Ok, another example: "You and your husband are having difficulty communicating due to the deep-rooted childhood emotional instability that is festering inside." So then she says: "האם זה בתוכו או בתוכי!?!"
The former is an adverb which means “indoors”. (“To stay indoors”, “To be used indoors only”.) The latter is a preposition ”inside” that must be used with a noun phrase: “inside the house”.
I thought it was inside but not a physical object? It was on Memrise Duolingo as the difference between the two. I forgot the example given, was that wrong?
