* ''Series/{{Victoria}}'' is a very rare example of ship teasing using actual historical figures, specifically Queen Victoria and her first prime minister, Lord Melbourne (or "Lord M" as she called him). The series includes many shippy moments between the two, culminating in [[spoiler: an attempted marriage proposal by Victoria to Lord M, which he stops]]. Historical sources are split as to how much of this is TruthInTelevision. But history aside, the first four episodes of the series are filled with shipping angst between the two.

* On ''Series/LawAndOrderSpecialVictimsUnit'', the second half of Alex Cabot's farewell episode throws a bone to the Alex/Olivia shippers in almost ''every scene''.
-->"Stay with me sweetheart. Alex. Alex. ''Alex''."

** The
second half of Alex Cabot's farewell episode throws a bone to the Alex/Olivia Alex Cabot/Olivia Benson shippers in almost ''every scene''.
-->"Stay --->"Stay with me sweetheart. Alex. Alex. ''Alex''.""
** There's really no other excuse than this for the [[HeldGaze long, lingering looks]], late-night drinks, subtle touches, and open concern shared between ADA Rafael Barba and Olivia Benson. Perhaps not incidentally, actors Raúl Esparza (Barba) and Mariska Hargitay (Benson) have openly admitted to [[ShipperOnDeck shipping their characters with each other]].

** Chandler/Monica were teased mildly in early seasons, with them almost having sex in a flashback, Chandler describing her as the most beautiful women he's ever known-come-favourite person, offering a [[{{FallbackMarriagePact}} FallbackChildrenPact]], and spending two episodes straight arguing that she should date him which led many fans to theorize he had some buried feelings for her. They also had crushes on each other in flashback episodes and confided secrets that even the other Friends didn't know. [[spoiler: No one thought it was serious until they slept together in Season 5, fell in love and ended up HappilyMarried.]]

* Series/{{Arrow}} started teasing Felicity/Oliver pretty much immediately. Between her innuendo-laden speech, him comforting her after a particularly bad day, the fact that they're both drop dead gorgeous, and that Oliver tells Felicity he's in love with her at the end of season two, only for it to be revealed to be a trick to fool [[BigBad Deathstroke]]. This mostly picked up during the second season when the writers picked up how popular the pairing was, which lead to a BrokenBase for those who ''didn't'' ship it and felt it was being pushed too much, and those who ''do'' ship it but feel the writers are relying too much on teasing it to keep the shippers watching.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Arya/Gendry get a fair bit of teasing, despite their young ages, as they forge an incredibly close friendship, Arya checks him out when he's shirtless and [[spoiler: even tells him that he could "be her family." (Gendry returns that he can't because she'll always be "m'lady" with the obvious implication that their difference in status - the daughter or a lord vs. a blacksmiths apprentice - would make any future romantic relationship impossible.)]]

** The series repeatedly establishes on more occasions that can be counted that Xena and Gabrielle are each others' most important person, they owe each other their lives in more ways than one, they would die and go to [[GoshDangItToHeck Tartarus]] and fight all the monsters the universe can throw at them to protect each other, and they share a connection that literally transcends time and space. By the final seasons it seems the writers threw up their hands and go "Yeah, we know and you know they're in love, but we can't actually say it so we'll do everything we can otherwise."

** The ExpandedUniverse likes to do this with the Fifth Doctor and Peri a lot, as the actors had a ''preposterous'' amount of on-screen {{UST}} for the two television stories they spent together, even though NoHuggingNoKissing was being enforced to very powerful levels at that point. Just one tiny example is in the Fifth Doctor & Peri story in ''Short Trips and Sidesteps'', where the Fifth Doctor becomes extremely flustered by Peri wearing just a large Disneyland tshirt as her nightclothes and nothing else, mumbles something about her outfit, and [[DistractedByTheSexy becomes distracted from flying the TARDIS]].

** Clara Oswald and the Eleventh Doctor have bucket loads of ShipTease. From accidental hugging to hand holding to the Doctor calling Clara "perfect" to a Cyber-converted Doctor confessing his love to her to [[ItMakesSenseInContext the Doctor telling her to take her clothes off after a]] SuggestiveCollision. Utterly sunk (at least, so it appeared at first ...) when the Eleventh Doctor regenerated into a very alien, spidery old man who constantly insults her appearance (not that Eleven never did, usually in very obvious denial), but that didn't stop Twelve managing to add his own piece of ShipTease to the sunken Clara[=/=]Eleven ship when Twelve remarked to Clara that "he wasn't her boyfriend", but not in the sense that Clara thought that way, it was ''Eleven'' who made that mistake.

* ''CaptainPowerAndTheSoldiersOfTheFuture'' had a Ship Tease going on between Jonathan Power and Jennifer Chase throughout the series, but the [[KilledOffForReal latter's death]] and the show's cancellation ended it just when it really started to develop.

** Before [[HeterosexualLifePartners Wilson]], before [[BelligerentSexualTension Cuddy]], the writers began piling up so many [[MentorShip House/Cameron]] moments that this entry would triple in length if we tried to list them all. In the first season alone, House: asks Cameron to a [[NotADate monster truck rally]], the passes for which cost him ''one thousand dollars'' (and whereat, for only the second time in the series, he not only looks completely relaxed, but gives a [[WhenSheSmiles genuine, wholehearted smile]]); looks devastated when she quits during the [[CorruptCorporateExecutive Vogler]] arc; asks her to come back after Vogler leaves; agrees to go on a date with her in order to get her to come back; [[PetTheDog goes out of his way to make that date as nice as possible]], even taking advice from [[VitriolicBestBuds Wilson]] (and, when it [[StatusQuoIsGod inevitably goes south]], makes it clear that he is pushing Cameron away because [[IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy he feels as though he doesn't deserve her]]); mentions in the very first episode that he hired her because she was "extremely pretty" - [[NotSoDifferent and damaged, the very word he uses during their date to describe himself]]; and, most subtly and most significantly, makes it clear to a random clinic patient (and Wilson) that he does not anticipate sex at the end of that date, even though he'd usually be more than happy to [[AManIsNotAVirgin make people believe something happened even when nothing did]]. To put it mildly, defending Cuddy's or Stacy's honor was [[MyGirlIsASlut never high on House's list]] - but the instant there's a possibility of a serious misunderstanding of Cameron, especially by a complete stranger, [[MyGirlIsNotASlut he makes the truth quite unambiguous]]. In season two, to take just one example, there's the [[{{Fanservice}} red dress]] Cameron wears during the charity benefit, which makes House [[DistractedByTheSexy completely lose his train of thought]] even while trying to solve a mystery that had troubled him for ''twelve years''. Season two is also the time when House opines that "There are two things people get stupid for: money and sex." Well, since he's made it plain that sex isn't on the table (wait, ThatCameOutWrong) where Cameron is concerned, what could possibly make him stupid, even momentarily, for her? [[LoveAtFirstSight What]] [[LoveMakesYouDumb indeed...]]

Added DiffLines:

** Eventually by the penultimate season of the show, they began to tease the prospect of Amy and Ben getting back together.


Added DiffLines:

* ''Mr. Young'': Adam and Echo. '''Constantly'''. A lot of the show is predicated on Adam trying hair-brain schemes to get Echo interested in him. There was a point in "Mr. Dog" when Adam's walking a seeing eye dog through the school and Echo comments on how cute he is. The dog, not Adam. Adam also nearly responds, but stops when that's clarified.

** The last story, "The Man Who Never Was", is basically an hour of ship tease, as we first learn that Luke refers to them by their [[PortmanteauCoupleName Shipping Portmanteau]] (a habit Sky seems to pick up) and then they have to ''pose as a married couple''.

* A RunningGag for the Proessor in Season 2 of ''GilligansIsland''. He gets teased with Mary Anne in "Beauty Is As Beauty Does," gets way too into a BigDamnKiss with Ginger when the castaways make a movie-message for help, gets an AccidentalEngagement with wealthy visitor Erika Tiffany Smith, and even helps Mrs. Howell pull off an OperationJealousy.
