** [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] in ''Literature/HowMuchForJustThePlanet'', in which [=McCoy=] ribs Kirk about how many of the people they've met who were his girlfriend at one point or another, and even Spock joins in, stating that the doctor raises a "valid statistical point". Surprising no-one ''except'' Kirk, he briefly dated the ambassador they're transporting around eighteen years ago, and just misremembered her name. [=McCoy=] excuses himself and Spock, presumably so he can die laughing somewhere in private.

Contrast with the heroic OfficialCouple, who were in the foreplay stage for ''fifty episodes''. In this case we see a flashback of them as childhood friends before the reunion. For all intents and purposes, are [[spoiler: engaged to be married by the series finale.]]
