When Boy Meets Girl at a party or a club, and music (often performed by a live band) is playing, the next number that comes up will be a slow dance. Usually, it's a contrived coincidence, but Genre Savvy characters will make sure to tell the band to make it a slow dance at the right moment.

This will also happen with a man and a woman who already know each other, and who have unspoken feelings for one another.

  • Public Enemies: When John Dillinger chats up Billie Frechette, the next dance is "Bye Bye Blackbird", which will remain a cherished memory for both of them throughout the story.
  • I'm sure this also happens with Adama and Laura Roslin in Battlestar Galactica.
  • Groundhog Day
