* Also seen in ''AshesToAshes'' many ''many'' times between Gene Hunt and Alex Drake, with the same resolution. Arguably, one party was unconscious for three of these.

* Obnoxiously overused in the Creator/{{CBS}} ''Series/BeautyAndTheBeast'' television show from the late '80s. In practically every episode Vincent and Catherine start to engage in a kiss, but at the last moment they always wince and just hug each other instead. After a while, it didn't feel like "the characters always come to the realization that their love is not possible," so much as [[ExecutiveMeddling "the producers were afraid of outcries of bestiality."]] When he finally did kiss her, [[spoiler: ''it was after she was dead'']]. Arrgghhh!

* PlayedForLaughs in ''Manga/OnePiece'' regarding [[HoYay Sanji]] [[VitriolicBestBuds and]] [[FoeRomanceSubtext Zoro]] in the filler episodes. The first time was when both of them were sleeping side by side and a dreaming Sanji, thinking he saw Nami, puckered his lips for a kiss. Zoro's reaction was unforgettable. The second time was Zoro and Sanji were hit by Foxy's Noro Noro beam while Sanji was jumping towards Zoro (for knocking Nami out of the way) and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=REVKgyYM2Tc hilarity ensues.]]
* Lawrence and Holo in season one episode four of ''LightNovel/SpiceAndWolf''. It was interrupted by Holo herself because that wasn't her reason for getting into his bed.
* Yayori and Minoru at the end of chapter four of ''Manga/NekoDeGomen''.
* In the finale of ''Manga/SpecialA'', [[CuteMute Megumi]] and former BigBad Yahiro's kiss is interrupted by Tadashi zipping by on his bike. Yahiro lampshades this, shouting at Tadashi for ruining the atmosphere.
* After the time skip in ''Manga/FairyTail'', [[spoiler:Jellal and Erza]]. The tension lasts three whole pages, coupled with a sunrise and [[ItMakesSenseInContext symbolic plants]]. They even get a BigDamnKiss action shot... but [[spoiler:Jellal]] mentions his [[BlatantLies fiancée]]. He was trying to ruin the moment... but c'mon!
