* ''MadMen'': This is combined with the LongingLook at the end of "The Rejected". Peggy and Pete lock eyes wistfully as they each follow their separate paths (her with new counterculture friends, him with businessmen in suits). However, you can tell there's always going to be a bit of longing and a "what could have been" vibe between them, even though neither one wants to travel down that path again.

Added DiffLines:

* Several instances in ''Fanfic/NeonGenesisEvangelionGenocide'':
** In chapter 10, Shinji and Asuka's eyes locked on another when she revealed that she was scared because her synch-ratio had dropped again.
--->The German redhead seemed to consider his question for an eternity, rolling it in her mind and wondering if she should answer. For the first time in the night, their eyes locked on one another.
** In chapter 11, after kissing, Shinji and Asuka lock eyes for a while.
--->When the kiss finally broke they both gasped for air, and locked eyes with each other again.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/TomodachiLife'', dating and married Mii couples do this ''a lot'', but all they just do is stare at each other with their "happy" expressions (with hearts flying over their heads if at the apartments or their houses). Strangely, ''they never kiss''.

* In ''[[Fanfic/WeightlessMassEffect Weightless]]'', Shepard and Garrus do this [[LoveAtFirstSight right from the first time they meet]] and every changes they have after that. Naturally, a lot people catch on that (like Kaidan and Thane) really fast.

* In ''Fanfic/ThousandShinji'', after destroying [[EldritchAbomination Leliel]], Shinji and Asuka have celebratory sex. When they’re done, they spend a while gazing into each other’s eyes.
-->All that was left was to gaze into the eyes of the other, and to see your own eyes superimposed from their point of view.

* On ''Series/{{NCIS}}'', this happens between Tony and Ziva at times. The most obvious (and hilarious) instance is season 7's "Reunion", after Ziva's time in Somalia. After Ziva suggest something to help Tony and [=McGee=] on their case, Tony and Ziva end up in an intimate staring contest, totally oblivious to anyone else in the room. [=McGee=] notices and awkwardly excuses himself from the room.

* Mulder and Scully of ''Series/TheXFiles'' Held Gazed a lot. It has been said that one of their meaningful gazes could make everyone else in the room--and, by extension, everyone else in the audience--feel like they were intruding on some absurdly private moment. There are whole {{Fan Vid}}s consisting of their looks, like [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D8gL1mCDpf4 this one]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hRyO2UuSUT0 this one]].

* Mulder and Scully of ''Series/TheXFiles'' Held Gazed a lot. used this trope frequently throughout the series, to the point of FacialDialogue. It has been said that one a habit of their meaningful gazes could make shutting out everyone else in the room--and, by extension, everyone else in the audience--feel like they were intruding on some absurdly private moment. There are whole {{Fan Vid}}s consisting of their looks, like [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D8gL1mCDpf4 this one]] room and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hRyO2UuSUT0 this one]].making even small moments ridiculously intimate.

** [[spoiler:In the final scene of the entire series, after an entire season's worth of ShipTease and nudges, ''Korra and Asami'', of all people, share one of these--complete with holding hands whilst facing one another--as they're teleported into the Spirit World by Republic City's newly-created Spirit Portal. It's like Bryke decided to smash a wrecking ball through the MoralGuardians' basement.]]

* The platonic variant happens frequently on ''Series/TheRachelMaddowShow'' when Rachel's dear friend Richard Engel, NBC's Chief Foreign Correspondent, appears on her show, particularly (but not always) when he's actually in-studio. Though other close friends of Rachel's do interviews with her frequently -- Chris Hayes, Steve Kornacki, and Nicolle Wallace are just a few -- and she's always glad to see them, something particularly special happens whenever Engel comes to visit. Unlike with anyone else, they sometimes seem to forget that the camera is there at all, instead taking visible and unrestrained delight in each other's company even when Engel is thousands of miles and multiple time zones away. When he's actually in the studio with her, they might as well be sitting on her sofa, just entirely focused on each other and geeking out over foreign policy.
