* Many residents of senior-care facilities meet new sweethearts at said facilities and even get married, having the wedding right in the facility. On a less romantic note, it appears that venereal diseases run rampant at such facilities, as the residents have relationships and flings and assorted other, erm, encounters, and (since the women are all well past childbearing age) never seem to wear condoms.

** The fifty-something Carson, the butler, and the fity-year-old Mrs Hughes, the housekeeper, were supposed to be MarriedToTheJob, and PlatonicLifePartners, but soon became a FanPreferredCouple. TheWordOfGod was aware of it and liked holding out a carrot with the fans, by some GreenEyedMonster from Carson's side and ShipTease from both sides. However, after 5 seasons, 12 years on screen, TheyDo at the end of 5th season.

TheWordOfGod The WordOfGod was aware of it and although he used to say that they wouldn't get together, liked holding out a carrot with teasing the fans, by some GreenEyedMonster from Carson's side and some ShipTease from both sides.

Quark didn't take it very well, not least because the Ferengi government had [[PersonaNonGrata forced him into exile]] a while back and Zek didn't seem to think this was any sort of barrier to pursuing a relationship with his mother.
