When you find a friend in a state of great emotional distress, the appropriate response is a three-step process: Hug her, kiss her forehead, then press your forehead against hers. Murmuring soothing words or wiping away her tears is optional. Both males and females are welcome to take part in this trope, but it's rare for a male character to be a recipient from a female, probably because he's usually [[OneHeadTaller taller]]. This pose is also handy so two can be close to each other without obscuring faces from the camera.

* Seen in ''Series/CodeBlack'' when Neal Hudson, an attending ER doctor, finds extremely depressed resident Christa Lorenson hidden in a supply closet after losing a patient who she'd wanted to keep at the hospital, but who the ER director had ordered her to discharge. Christa blames herself for not standing up to the director, and Neal -- who quite plainly has mutual feelings for her -- takes hold of her waist and touches his forehead to hers in order to help calm her down. [[spoiler:This leads to their first kiss and subsequent relationship upgrade.]]
