** Fargo and Holly. Of course, when you have a character portrayed by FeliciaDay, you gotta figure it's going to be on the horizon. It's kind of a common situation, given [[SurroundedByGeniuses the setting.]]

* President UsefulNotes/JohnAdams fell for his wife Abigail ''precisely'' because she was a bluestocking who could match wits with him and enjoy it. They flirted passionately using allusions to Classical literature -- both before and after their marriage -- while also discussing the political situation of the day in exhaustive detail. Abigail was well-read, well-informed, and well-educated, and John was never afraid to ask her for advice; she served as his chief adviser throughout his life. [[HappilyMarried And they produced some of the spiciest love letters ever written.]]

** Witness:
--->'''Mulder''': Looks like the fuselage of a plane. \\
'''Scully''': It's a North American P-51 Mustang. \\
'''Mulder''': I just got very turned on.
** Or the one from "Chinga":
--->'''Mulder''': Maybe you don't know what you're looking for. \\
'''Scully''': Like evidence of conjury or the black arts, or shamanism, divination, wicca or any kind of pagan or neopagan practices. Charms, cards, familiars, bloodstones, or hex signs or any kind of ritual tableaux associated with the occult, santeria, voudoun, macumba, or any high or low magic. \\
'''Mulder''': Scully? \\
'''Scully''': Yes? \\
'''Mulder''': Marry me.
** This one from "War of the Coprophages":
--->'''Scully''': The very idea of intelligent alien life is not only astronomically improbable but, at its most basic level, downright anti-Darwinian. \\
'''Mulder''':Scully...what are you wearing?

* Yorick being attracted to girls with obscure interests is a bit of a RunningGag in ''Comicbook/YTheLastMan''. A shining example is when he, upon learning that that a woman named her boat after the ship in ''[[KurtVonnegut Sirens of Titan]]'', [[EngagingConversation instantly proposed to her]]. Yorick's sister Hero {{lampshade}}s this when Beth (not that Beth, the other one) starts rattling off side notes about the Swiss Guards that kidnapped them both in the name of the Catholic Church.

* In ''Literature/TheSilmarillion'', Fëanor's wife Nerdanel. Considered 'not the fairest among her people', the Noldor widely wondered what the canonically gorgeous king's son and prodigious [[RenaissanceMan polymath]] wanted with her, but Nerdanel became widely renowned for her wisdom, being the only one who could 'restrain Fëanor' in the beginning. She also was a skilled sculptress, whose more abstract works escaped comprehension. Both of these things perhaps comprise an acceptable example of elven geekdom.

* In ''Series/HowIMetYourMother'' Ted considers a woman being a ''StarWars'' fan a big turn-on. When he and Barney are hitting on a pair of girls together, and one of them compares the blizzard outside to [[TheEmpireStrikesBack the planet Hoth]], Ted tells Barney, "Dibs."
