* ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration''. In "Lessons", Captain Picard finds himself DuetBonding with a female officer Nella Daren. The relationship turns romantic, and after their first kiss they're in the turbolift discussing their love of music when someone else enters. Picard turns to the front and when Nella tries to continue the conversation, formally addresses Nella by her rank instead of her name, leaving the turbolift at the first opportunity. He apologises for this afterwards.
