    two lines are parallel once they have the same gradient

    They should have the same slopes, which is m

    Lines are parallel on a Riemannian manifold if you can find a connection between them, which is arbitrarily defined by the choice of connection coefficients or by the metric tensor of the space. :P

    two lines are parallel when they don't intersect. It also indicates that there is no solution (an inconsistent system) when you're solving a system of equations by using the graphing method.
