* ''The Literature/VorkosiganSaga'' contains multiple examples:
** Cordelia's engineering of Kou's proposal to Drou in ''Barrayar''.
** Miles repeats Cordelia's performance with Baz and Elena in ''The Warrior's Apprentice.''
** Ekaterin proposes to Miles while he is being (falsely) accused of murder[[note]]of ''her first husband'', no less[[/note]]. His response: "Of course! Now?"
*** It got wackier. Directly behind her were Miles's [[AmazinglyEmbarrassingParents Parents]] who just can't wait to introduce themselves.
