* In "Experiment in Terror" FBI agent Creator/GlennFord does not wind up with victim Lee Remick. They never have a moment, they do not have sex, there is nothing between them. This is the rare example of Truth In Television because it's his job and just being in a stressful situation together doesn't lead to two entirely different people who did not know each other before falling in love and living their lives together.

This is mostly the result of [[DubText the English dub adding hints toward the pairing]] when the original Japanese portrayed them as strictly platonic, but being forced to back off when the sequel had a different OfficialCouple.

* In ''Theatre/ThePlayboyOfTheWesternWorld'', Pegeen Mike rejects Christy Mahon in the end. It's not a downer ending for him, though; he gets so much else that he's got a good chance of getting over the rejection -- whereas she regrets her decision deeply as soon as it's too late to take it back.
