* ''Literature/{{Komarr}'' by Creator/LoisMcMasterBujold: Miles Vorkosigan, when [[LoveInterest Ekaterin]] starts to slip down a slope, has a flashback to the rescue operation in ''Literature/TheBordersOfInfinity''. In the previous incident, as the DropShip was leaving, one of the female prisoners who helped him organize it from the inside fell out the back. Miles tried to catch her, but he missed the grip and she fell to her death. This time he catches her...and promptly slides into the pond with her, as he's not anchored to anything and she outmasses him. This helps him accept that he couldn't have saved the other woman.
