* The Meet Me In Montauk part from ''EternalSunshineOfTheSpotlessMind''. While it makes sense that he'd be able to hold onto that shred, how did ''she'' end up on the right train? Totally doesn't matter. The mind wipe hadn't been completely effective on her either, as made obvious by her scenes with Patrick.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{WALL-E}}''. How is it that EVE's kiss restores WALL-E's memories and personality? Well, [[AllThereInTheManual the Buy'n'Large website]] (sadly defunct) explicitly {{Hand Wave}}d this: "''Your WALL-E unit may take up to 10 minutes on first boot before scanning for additional operating software (eg. hazardous waste protocols).''" But if you have any soul, you wouldn't need an explanation.

[[AC:{{Anime}} and {{Manga}}]]
* In'' Manga/{{Chobits}}'', Hideki cannot have sex with Chi -- ever. He doesn't care because he still loves her.




[[AC:LiveActionTV]]
* How ''Series/PushingDaisies'' is able to gloss over the fact that Ned can't actually touch his girlfriend, to the effect of "It doesn't matter, they love each other." They definitely got creative with various forms of plastic wrap, and Ned says he's built contraptions.

Now ValuesDissonance can come into play far more often than the other "Rule" tropes, which is not only across national lines, but across gender. Now guys deny it, but they do have a notion of romantic. It's just that not only is it extremely different than what's in a typical RomanticComedy or RomanceNovel, they also tend to be more private about it, at least in American culture.

This trope doesn't actually apply with ShippingWars. Those people usually just care about making their couples look good. You can tell because they often praise an unrealistic point if it supports a couple they favor, and slam that exact same point if it supports a couple they don't.
