** WinonaRyder showed up as an old friend with a crush on Rachel. Winona kissed Rachel, then promptly disappeared from the series forever, her purpose fulfilled... or perhaps not, since the episode didn't even win its timeslot (wich may be explained that it was because both were really lame kisses).

Often classified as {{fanservice}}, this is mostly just a RatingsStunt, calculated to get more viewers while creating a manageable amount of blowback from the MoralGuardians, who, while generally disapproving of lesbianism, have a sufficient DoubleStandard concerning depictions of male and female homosexuality that they generally save their outrage for, you know, ''serious'' dangers to society, like ''{{Dogma}}'' or ''BrokebackMountain''...

* Spoofed in the ''Series/GrossePointe'' episode "Passion Fish," where SarahMichelleGellar only wants to do one to snag an Emmy nomination but gets MistakenForGay for wanting to do it in the wake of kissing Selma Blair in ''CruelIntentions''.

* ''Series/LALaw'': New BiTheWay lawyer C.J. Lamb kissed series regular Abby Perkins in the parking lot in one {{Sweeps}} episode; they rarely referenced it again and C.J.'s actress, Amanda Donohoe, left the cast the next season.

** Curiously, it had its "lesbian" kiss a couple weeks ''before'' {{Sweeps}} when a female villain with a GreenRocks-powered kiss that causes face-melting hallucinations needs to do something about a witness (Lana, of course). She, ahem, uses her power on Lana, an act that seems to disgust both of them. One could speculate that the reason this episode didn't make it to {{Sweeps}} was that it simply wasn't very good FanService.

* ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'': Jadzia Dax, who is a host-symbiote character, kissed and got romantically involved with another woman of her species in one episode. Though the ''Franchise/StarTrek'' universe has implied acceptance to gay people, the relationship was inappropriate because their relationship was based on a relationship had by a previous (male) Dax host with the other woman, [[{{Anvilicious}} which is disallowed]]. The other woman was never seen again. Notably, that episode at least tried to tackle a social issue - they did it again in the seventh season and it was gratuitous even in context, purely there to show the MirrorUniverse is DarkerAndEdgier.

* Parodied in ''WebComic/AnsemRetort'', where Ansem refuses the cast's demand for lesbian fanservice cause they're saving it for when they need a cheap ratings boost.

* Similar to ''Dirt,'' ''Series/{{Heroes}}'' had a notorious example between Gretchen and Claire Bennet in its final season. Since Claire's bisexuality was never touched upon in previous seasons, however, this scene not only had UnfortunateImplications, but also was seen by even the loyalest of fans [[JumpingTheShark as a cheap ratings stunt,]] which effectively doomed the show. Slight subversion, though, in that it was (reportedly) Creator/HaydenPanettiere's idea.
** Not only was it was Hayden's idea, but Claire and Gretchen were supposed to kiss again in the episode "Pass/Fail." Apparently the writers/producers didn't want to be accused of another "ratings stunt" by the same [[UnpleasableFanbase people]] who assumed the earlier kiss was such a stunt (which likely had little to do with the show's demise anyway). But according to WordOfGod, Claire and Gretchen's relationship would have continued the following season. So perhaps it wasn't a stunt after all...

* While on comic book series, ''Series/AgentCarter'' had an example that actually served a plot purpose and wasn't even included in the promos. The title character is trying to run away from the lawmen at her home. She then finds Dottie, a housemate who is secretly a SleeperAgent, and Dottie kisses her in the lips... [[KissOfDeath because she's wearing Carter's knockout lipstick]], leading the passed out Peggy to an easy capture.
