* In an episode of ''{{iCarly}}'', Sam tries to attract a boyfriend by being girlier. Turns out he likes her the way she was. * In one episode of ''{{The Office}}'', Michael — unaware he's being romantically set up — is quirkily joking his way into the heart of Pam and Jim's friend. When Michael learns the truth, he exits the bar, unbuttons the top button of his shirt, puts on a backwards hat, and re-enters as "Date Mike," whose antics are so obnoxious the girl leaves early.

* An episode of ''FamilyTies'' had a guy getting ready for a date with Mallory by asking Alex for tips. Alex (who apparently was genuinely trying to help) proceeds to give a bunch of chauvinistic advice (starting with ordering for her and getting worse from there). Naturally, it doesn't end well.

* In ''Film/GroundhogDay'', Phil has his first day where he was doing great with Andy McDowell's character, so much that he wants it to continue. When he tries to force the same reaction during the next loop, his forwardness actually pushes her away. [[spoiler:He finally gets it right.]]

* One episode of ''Series/{{Mash}}'' features Radar catching a girl's attention through just being sweet and Radar-like, and without realising it, and tries to grab her attention again by pretending to be an ex-footballer, through ignoring her and 'playing cool', and then by trying to be 'interesting' with talk about rabbits. She's mostly confused, but in the end he admits what he's been trying to do and they end up together... [[SnapBack until the next episode.]]

For his sister, who is more or less the political ''opposite'' of the kind of woman he'd be interested in dating ... not so much.
