* In Creator/JohnFord's ''Film/TheSearchers'' one of the many visual hints of Ethan and Martha's relationship in the past is when Martha hugs Ethan's coat out of sight of other characters. Martha eventually married Ethan's brother and started a family.

* The famous Music/GeorgeGershwin song ''They Can't Take Away From Me'' sung by Creator/FredAstaire, Music/FrankSinatra and many many others. It's actually a BreakupSong but with an amicable air that while the relationship ended, it wasn't a mistake to have started it:
--> ''We may never, never meet again\\
On that bumpy road to love\\
Still I'll always,\\
Always keep the memory of\\
The way you hold your knife\\
The way we danced until three.\\
The way you've changed my life.\\
No, no - they can't take that away from me.''

Later we see Kenshin sitting under a tree with [[spoiler:Tomoe's]] shawl wrapped around him. In a semi-reversal, we see the ghostly image of [[spoiler:Tomoe wrapping her]] arms around him.

* There is a creepy short film where a man has made an eerily lifelike doll/machine that looks like his dead wife--at the end, he's just standing there holding it, manipulating switches on its back so it will embrace him in return. (Need some WikiMagic, anyone know the name of the film?)

** After Angel turns evil, Buffy curls up in her bed weeping, clutching the claddagh ring he gave her in the previous episode. She brings out the ring again the following season, guilty over having been forced to kill him. Eventually she decides to move on and leaves the ring at the place where he died (ironically, Angel chooses that moment to come BackFromTheDead).
