* One example of this Trope that has a happy ending is in the ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' episode "Bendless Love". When Bender gets a job as a "scab" in a factory that is experiencing a worker's strike, he finds his not-so-evil twin Flexo working there too, and also a pretty female robot named Angelyne who he develops a crush on. When Bender finds out that Angelyne is Flexo's ex-wife (but still apparently has feelings for him), Bender decides to see just how far the feelings go, and disguises himself as Flexo (easy to do, needing only a small fake beard) and taking Angelyne out for a night on the town. Unfortunately, this does indeed make Angelyne remember how much she loved Flexo. but even more ynfortunately, this once again gets the real Flexo in trouble, as the Robot Mafia - who is supporting the strikers - drops an unbendable girder on Flexo to punish him for flaunting his success. [[IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy Bender starts to feel sympathy for both of them]], and he decides to try bend the girder off of Flexo ("Well, I don't know anything about lifting, so we don't have many options here!") and actually succeeds, after which Angelyne and Flexo apparently make love right there, with Bender still in the room.
