* Probably the world's only example of [=SlapSlapGauzeGauzeSlapSlapGauzeGauzeSlapSlapKiss=]: Jen and Lo of Film/CrouchingTigerHiddenDragon. They fight, Lo treats Jen for dehydration, Jen knocks him on the head with a rock, Lo treats her for dehydration ''again'', and while he is treating her bloodied feet, she tries to regular assault him before she sexually assaults him (with his cooperation). Bonus points because Jen even makes the hissing noise as he picks a splinter out of her foot, but does not quite pull away.
* ''Film/DeconstructingHarry'' has the protagonist marrying [[spoiler: and divorcing]] his former psychoanalyst.

* Creator/SidJames' character in ''Film/CarryOnLoving'' tries to invoke this trope by claiming that his unrequited love for Creator/JoanSims led him to throw himself off a bridge and try to drown in the river. He tries to convince her even further by drenching himself in water from a fire hydrant, but she's still doesn't fall for it (she even asks him the name of the river he threw himself into). Regardless, she lets him into her apartment anyway.

* Sarah Connor and Kyle Reese in ''Film/TheTerminator''. Reese gets shot in the preceeding scene and Sarah notices it after what [[NoOneShouldSurviveThat must have been an hour or so]] seeing as how they drove until they ran out of gas. Cue MajorInjuryUnderreaction from Reese. Sarah flips out of course and proceeds to bandage up his arm, apparently oblivious to the obvious MaleGaze she's getting. It's a pretty important scene for their relationship, as Sarah finds out Reese's [[FirstNameBasis first name]]. Bonus points for hissing sound, btw.

Named for the famous nurse Florence Nightingale, although she herself never fell victim to this. Psychologists just [[SmallReferencePools couldn't think of a better doctor or nurse]], thus proving once and for all that tropers aren't the only ones who choose TropeNamers that aren't examples of the trope.

* There have been a number of documentaries made about a group of badly disfigured British UsefulNotes/WW2 veterans who married their nurses. The long time the soldiers spent in recovery let the nurses get to know them and see past the scars. In this case, too, the nurses were explicitly told that crossing the nurse/patient barrier was acceptable under the circumstances, if they wished to - the men had been so horrifically disfigured that it was thought that no other woman would marry them. Pretty much any war up to the 1991 Gulf War (nursing stopped being viewed as a female-dominated field around that time, not earlier) has had a movie or five built around this trope.
