[[caption-width-right:350:Master Hawkeye explains how to save the world and get laid in a single adventure]]

So, you've got your enemy on the ropes (literally or figuratively) and you feel the need to really rub it in that you've won. Or, your enemy's got you on the ropes and it's time for desperate measures to turn things round. What should you do? In fiction, one option is the Take That Kiss. (Wiki/TVTropes makes no guarantees for how well this works in RealLife, so DontTryThisAtHome--or at least, don't come crying to us if you do and it fails or backfires.)

Whereas the Take-That Kiss is sometimes the most blatant expression of FoeRomanceSubtext, it also can be the ''only'' thing in the characters' exchanges that suggests FoeYay at all. It will typically be more of a taunting/patronizing/desperate/tricksterish/arrogant domination display than a romantic/sexy come-on--though it's quite often played as an ironic version of a come-on, or possibly some kind of complicated double-bluff.

For related reasons, it's usually not a ShutUpKiss, at least of the core variety that leads to two characters finally getting together, if only for a while, and no slapping need be involved, [[SlapSlapKiss before]] or [[KissKissSlap after]]. If there is {{UST}} or BelligerentSexualTension though, expect this trope to feature somewhere, at least as long as one of the parties is GenreSavvy enough to pick up on it.

The idea isn't ''necessarily'' specifically to mock or antagonize, though. It usually seems more like a non-verbal TakeThat, though not always aggressive or hostile, and can be more of an affectionate sending-up or one-upping.

In effect, the "message" can range from "Try anything else, and I'll pull the plug on your career as well as make fun of you in public," (the ''Series/{{Riget}}'' example, below) through "I'm not going to let your hostility stop my aggravating exuberance," (WesternAnimation/BugsBunny, WesternAnimation/WoodyWoodpecker) to "So you just told a memorable fable about the problem of evil that explicitly challenges all I'm thought to stand for, and now you're expecting a counter-argument? Well, actually, I'm just going to do something ambiguous and non-verbal that will nonplus you and everybody else," (''Literature/TheBrothersKaramazov'').

Though this is most commonly pulled by villain(ish) characters, it can also be done by a Designated Hero, or (as in the ''Film/{{Heathers}}'' and ''Series/{{Riget}}'' examples) by characters whose morality tends to the ambiguous. Examples of full-on good characters doing this are more rare--but see ''Literature/TheBrothersKaramazov'' examples.

If that all seems a lot to read into an ambiguous and often completely non-verbal act, that hopefully just proves the point, but feel free to intone BellisariosMaxim if desired.

A common variant is for a character to kiss someone as a TakeThat to some third party. The message here is typically, "No, I'm not into you, and I'll prove it by randomly kissing whoever happens to be available because I'd rather have anyone else but you."

Blowing kisses can be a way of achieving a similar, if milder, mocking effect at a safe(r) distance. Compare TermsOfEndangerment.

See also the more metaphorical type of KissOfDeath, which is rather stronger than just saying TakeThat.


[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* ''Manga/FutureDiary'':
** Tsubaki Kasugano plants one of these on Yukiteru when she thinks she's defeated him and Yuno. Unfortunately for her, [[{{Yandere}} Yuno]] [[BerserkButton doesn't like that]] [[MurderTheHypotenuse one bit]].
** Later, [[spoiler: Akise]] gives one to Yukki, partly out of love, partly to piss Yuno off. [[GoneHorriblyRight It worked.]] [[OffWithHisHead Maybe too well]].
* In ''Manga/HanaKimi'', while the school doctor Umeda is lecturing the main characte Mizuki's homophobic older brother on why he's being unreasonable towards his sister, he grabs him by the neck tie and kisses him (as the author put it) "Just to piss him off".
* In ''Anime/{{Monster Rancher}}'' episode 44 "Magical Stone Mayhem", Lilim almost kills Holly and Tiger, steals the magic stone, and almost kills the searchers (by having the army of robots shoot them to death). As she's leaving, Genki grabs on to her legs while she's flying away -- only for her to kick him down. He falls 30 feet only to be saved at the last second. Lilim tells him "Thanks again," blows a flirtatious kiss, and then flies off. Also in the same episode after she steals the magic stone from Holly, she gives it a kiss - so in a way it's kind of a "Take That" kiss by kissing the stone and then mockingly telling Holly "thanks". In the uncut version of episode 45, she betrays General Durahan and kills his crew and collection of monsters. After a hard battle, she ambushes him from behind and steals the magic stone again. Before leaving, she blows him a goodbye kiss. It's safe to say Lilim loves this trope so much she'd probably give it a kiss.
* In ''Anime/{{Naruto}}'', the titular character is having a friendly fight against The (Soon to be) fifth Hokage, the Granny Tsunade. Altough Naruto managed to pulled his brand new technique, she manages to put him against the ropes. When he awaits to receive an earth-shattering punch, he instead have his efforts rewarded with a kiss in the front. Oooow...
** Fuka puts Naruto on the ropes when she shows up in several filler episodes and tries to end the match numerous times with a KissOfDeath that sucks out his chakra. She's always thwarted before she can defeat Naruto though.
* ''Manga/ItazuraNaKiss'': Naoki kisses Kotoko mostly to get back at her after she publicly humiliated him with his [[EmbarrassingOldPhoto childhood photo]], which she did after he publicly ridiculed her feelings for him. Another reason is that she declared she would give up on him and [[spoiler: he doesn't like to hear that.]]
-->'''Kotoko:''' I'm going to forget you and attend college...\\
'''Naoki:''' Then, go ahead and try. (''kisses her'')
* In the ''Anime/{{Noir}}'' episode where Mireille and Kirika have to confront "The Intoccabile" -- a woman whom the normally unflappable Mireille has been terrified of since childhood -- the Intoccabile comes and speaks to Mireille herself to rub in the fact that Mireille is powerless against her because of her fear. She backs her into a balcony railing and then forces a kiss on her. Mireille tries to punch her, but the Intoccabile just catches her arm. She leaves unharmed, leaving poor Mireille feeling even more powerless than ever, which of course was the whole idea.
* Sae of ''Manga/PeachGirl'' is constantly attempting these on Toji, as a way to one up Momo.
* Sort of played with in ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' in the aftermath of the first encounter with Androids 17 & 18. After the two wipe the floor with all the Z fighters except for Krillin, 18 goes over to the terrified Krillin and gives him a kiss on the cheek. While it was pretty much a mocking gesture (Krillin was the only one who didn't fight) it was the start of a relationship that would eventually see the two of them marry in the future.
* In the final episode of ''VisualNovel/SchoolDays'', Makoto and Kotonoha do this in order to stick it to Sekai. Needless to say, things get worse.
* Done by proxy in the first part of ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'', where Dio steals Jonathan's beloved's FirstKiss to get one over on him. It [[InsultBackfire backfires]], as she proceeds to insult him by washing her mouth out with filthy water -- the implication being he's so disgusting she doesn't want to pollute the nearby stream. He snaps, backhands her (which causes his cronies to abandon him in disgust), and ultimately this causes him ''far'' more pain than it does Jonathan.
%%* In the second season of ''LightNovel/SpiceAndWolf''.
* In ''Manga/PrisonSchool'', Hana forcibly takes Kiyoshi's first kiss. It backfires horribly on her.
* In the manga of ''Manga/{{Hellsing}}'' as well as in ''Ultimate'', Pip repeatedly tries to sneak a kiss from Seras Victoria. Usually to [[AmusingInjuries disastrous]] results. But then, during the siege of Hellsing manor, he's mortally wounded (riddled with shrapnel and run through by a scythe), Seras is horrifically injured (missing her arm and both eyes), and he's able to sneak in one first, and last, kiss before he dies... and then proceeds to bust out laughing that he finally did it, before [[HeroicSacrifice offering his blood to her]] so she could heal up, [[TookALevelInBadass become a full vampire]], and avenge the Wild Geese (as well as just about everyone in London). It was not an insult to Seras but to the certainty of death.
* Nakago to Tamahome in ''Manga/FushigiYuugi''. Yep. You read that right.
** And that was in reference to the one Nakago previously gave Miaka, too.
* In ''{{Manga/Berserk}}'', [[spoiler: Griffith/Femto]] gives [[spoiler: Casca]] a ForcefulKiss just before [[spoiler: brutally raping her.]] Normally, it would be whether a kiss in the process of [[spoiler: a rape]] counts as this trope, but since the only point of this horrific KickTheDog moment was to spite [[spoiler: Casca and Guts]] before killing them, you could read the whole ordeal as a particularly evil TakeThat.
** He also tongue kisses her [[spoiler: while raping her from behind.]]
* In ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'''s rushed anime, Yue Ayase pulls a fast one in front of Nodoka Miyazaki at the end of the 24th episode.
* ''Manga/SeraphOfTheEnd'' has a variation, a TakeThat Bite. In chapter 46 Ferid drives up in his car and holds out his hand to Mika and Yuu, with a flirtatious look and teasingly saying "I heard you two were being attacked by a dangerous vampire so I came to your rescue. Come take a ride with me. I'll save you." He plays mind games with Yuu and Mika throughout the chapter, and when Yuu turns into a demon to attack Ferid for [[spoiler: showing them Akane's head]] Ferid tells Mika he's "worried for the poor guy (Yuu)" because he's says Yuu could turn into a full demon. He states he has an antidote to cure Yuu and tells Shinoa "Let us go rescue dear Yuu." Mika is adamant to keep Ferid from getting near Yuu and says "I won't let you have your way with him!" Ferid smiles and says he just wants to help Yuu. Mika says he's not going to let Ferid touch him. Crowley engages Mika in a fight while Ferid states cheerfully [[IHaveYouNowMyPretty "Now precious Yuu is all mine."]] Ferid approaches Yuu and blushes saying "Wow! [[ShesAllGrownUp Haven't you grown]] into the [[{{Bishonen}} cute one!]]! Your demon is on the verge of rampage yet you still have [[WhatBeautifulEyes such clear and beautiful eyes.]] No wonder you are the extra special guinea pig." He then lifts Yuu's face by his chin and gets close saying "Perhaps before I heal you I'll take a little sip of your blood." Yuu asks if there's something in it for him if he allows Ferid to suck his blood. Ferid says he got the curse suppressant from Guren and it's the same one he takes. Yuu demands Ferid tells him everything he knows and Ferid smiles, covers Yuu's mouth with his hand, says "Oh, you ''are'' cute" and bites him while gripping his shoulder and hand. He then "cures" Yuu of his advancing demon curse while holding him close and leaning his head on Yuu's shoulder. This was done purely [[ItAmusedMe because he]] [[FoeYay wanted to]] and to spite Mika.
* ''Manga/TokyoGhoul'': After Kaneki and Touka escape Mutsuki who is deranged out of love for Kaneki and screams he'll kill Kaneki and Touka both (Touka because she's in the way and Kaneki because he rejected him for Touka) it leans toward this trope when Touka abruptly pins down Kaneki to kiss him and they proceed to have sex. It certainly felt like Touka wanted to make sure she and Kaneki sealed the deal romantically before Mutsuki could snatch him away and attempt to do the same. Them kissing and having sex is almost like them saying "screw you" in regards to Mutsuki for thinking he could come between them.

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* ComicBook/{{Hawkeye}} did this to Deathbird after defeating her. This went beyond his usual style, but she was an exceptionally dangerous opponent, and he defeated her by himself, and he hadn't had a fight like that in quite a while, so he was riding on exhilaration.
* Hawkeye has also been on the receiving end of one of these, courtesy of ComicBook/SheHulk. He'd been messing with the newly recruited Avenger for a while now, and She-Hulk's response to his latest jabs was to forcibly pick him up, kiss him, and drop him on his ass. Even Clint admitted she's won that round.
* In Comicbook/{{Lucifer}}, Mazikeen, having just saved the CouncilOfAngels' bacon and ''still'' getting grief from them for being a) female and b) a demon, enlists a human [[LesYay admirer]] for a Take That Kiss:

* Shriek did this to ''Franchise/SpiderMan'' on one occasion after she beat him up then sucked out his energy.
** In a similar case, Queen [[VillainessesWantHeroes wanted Spider-Man as her mate]] and after defeating him, caught him in a hug and flirted with him saying he shouldn't feel bad for losing to her because he could have never beaten her before forcing a big wet kiss on him. She kissed him again while she had him captive and didn't take his resistance well. [[spoiler:It turns out her kiss was slowly mutating him into a giant spider, which she would have full control of and he would serve as her egg sac to give birth to her offsprings.]]
* One issue of ''ComicBook/Batgirl2000'' had Cassandra Cain do this to her father David after he had slapped her and in response she attacked and pinned him, she then planted one on him to show she had bested him leaving a kiss mark made from her blood on his mouth.

* [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/3014877/1/bKiss_b_bMe_b_bDeadly_b One Naruto AU fanfic]] in particular revolves around this. Sasuke, still Naruto's hated rival, blackmails him with information that could get him in serious trouble with their school and kicked out and possible even to lose his home. What he wants in return? The sick satisfaction of humiliating Naruto every day by forcing him to kiss someone he absolutely despises.
* ''[[FanFic/CheerileesGarden Cheerilee's Garden]]'' contains two instances of this in its third chapter, both performed on Twilight by Cheerilee: the first, during the conversation between the two before Cheerilee begins torturing Twilight to death, and the second during Twilight's final moments (during which Cheerilee becomes more and more passionate as she feels her victim's life slipping away; for added disturbance value, it's even implied that [[{{Squick}} Twilight's death gives her an orgasm]]).
* In the ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'' fic ''[[FanFic/BoundDestiniesTrilogy Wisdom and Courage]]'', after successfully forcing Link to gather the Fused Shadow's pieces for her in exchange for Zelda's life, Veran decides to twist the knife even further by planting a kiss on Link right in front of Zelda for the sole purpose of torturing them both.

Optimus, who was only negotiating as a stalling tactic, enters TranquilFury mode as a result of seeing his ArchEnemy kiss his OneTrueLove, and drops the charade, instigating a DuelToTheDeath]].

* In ''Film/RememberTheTitans'', [[AmbiguouslyGay Sunshine]] thanks Bertier for his homophobic remarks by giving him a big smooch in front of the entire team.

* Leia kisses Luke in ''Film/StarWars: Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack'' to spite Han during an argument. Became ''much'' HarsherInHindsight when ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi'' revealed that they were siblings. In Leia's defense, neither of them had known that at the time.

* ''Film/BlackWidow'' (1987). When FBI agent Alexandra gives Catharine a piece of "black widow" jewelry (letting her know that Alexandra knows she's a BlackWidow), Catharine kisses her as a challenge (also as part of the general LesYay FoeYay between them).
* In ''Film/{{Heathers}}'', Veronica plants one on Heather Duke near the end, just after divesting her of Heather Chandler's red hairband, which Heather Duke has taken to wearing as a sign that she's now the ''über'' AlphaBitch.
-->'''Veronica:''' Heather, my love, there's a new sheriff in town. {smooch}
* Maggie does this to Freddy does this after stuffing a pipe bomb in his gut at the end of ''Film/FreddysDeadTheFinalNightmare''.
* Chase plants one on Caleb in ''Film/TheCovenant'' for a rarer male on male example. Considering the most memorable moments in the movie consist of HoYay, FoeYay and boys in too small speedos, it's not really surprising.
* ''Film/{{Gladiator}}'': Either to emphasize the FoeYay between the two characters or the villain's [[DepravedBisexual depravity]], Commodus plants one on Maximus [[spoiler: while stabbing him in the side]] right before the big BossBattle in the Colosseum.
* Averted and subverted in the film of ''Film/{{Daredevil}}''.[[spoiler: As he is about to gut her with her own sai, Bullseye attempts to give Elektra a kiss before doing so. She keeps pushing him and moving him away and as soon as he's close enough to do so, he instead guts her. It follows through in the Director's Cut, while she's in the air with the sai in her gut, Bullseye delightfully succeeds in giving her a kiss]].
* Roger kisses Eddie Valiant in ''Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit,'' after which Eddie exclaims, "Don't ever kiss me again!" At the end, Eddie kisses Roger [[spoiler: to show that he hasn't quite lost his sense of humor.]]
* Nefertiri to Rameses in ''Film/TheTenCommandments''. An unusual example -- she did it to show how much she loves Moses and hates Rameses. "Did you think that was a promise of what you will have? No -- that was to show you what you will never have..."
* In the 2001 ''Literature/SnowWhite'', we get this unforgettable exchange between MirandaRichardson and KristinKreuk:

--> '''Elena:''' (''after Zorro has slashed Elena's nightgown'') Not bad.\\
(''another move and now they're in each other's faces'')\\
'''Zorro:''' Not bad at all. (''plants a kiss on Elena's mouth'')
* ''Film/TheGodfatherPartII'': In a mockery of the traditional hugs and kisses on the cheek Southern Europeans give each other, Michael Corleone kisses his brother Fredo as he states the latter's treachery.

* ''Film/HardcoreHenry'': ''Akan'' gives one to Henry after his apparent victory [[spoiler:and the reveal of Estelle's true nature]].
* ''Film/BatmanAndRobin'': When Pamela Isley becomes Poison Ivy, one of the first things she does is take revenge on her old boss Dr. Woodrue this way. Woodrue previously tried to kill her for discovering what he was doing with her research and refusal to [[WeCanRuleTogether join him]]. Once she emerges he is infatuated with her new beauty and she slowly brings him in for a deep kiss, which he immediately returns, only to tell him afterwards her lips are filled with [[KissOfDeath venom]]. As Woodrue slowly chokes to death, Ivy mockingly states she "probably should have mentioned that earlier" and taps him on the forehead, causing him to collapse backwards dead.
** Poison Ivy also spends a majority of the film [[DatingCatWoman seducing Robin]], tricking him into [[VillainessesWantHeroes thinking she loves him]] and [[BondBreaker breaking his bond with Batman]]. Eventually, she gets him alone in her lair and finally manages to share a poison kiss with him, under the guise of [[MotivationalKiss wishing "her love" luck against Mr.Freeze]]. She reveals her true colors after the kiss, telling Robin it is time to die in mock sadness. [[spoiler:But it was actually ''Robin'' who pulled this off, not ''Ivy''. Robin was wearing [[CrazyPrepared rubber lips]] to protect himself from her poison. He finally saw through her seductions and was pretending to still be blindingly in love with her, until he was able to see [[SecretTestOfCharacter if she could be trusted]]. He tricked her into revealing her plan and just stayed long enough to keep playing the "love-struck-sidekick" role and share one kiss with his crush like he wanted. He reveals this by removing his rubber lips as Ivy stares in [[OhCrap horror]], realizing the sidekick she had been seducing had [[OutGambitted managed to outsmart her and steal a kiss from her]].]]
-->'''Poison Ivy''': One kiss...my love (whisper) for luck.\\
(Robin and Ivy lean in, with Ivy smirking evily, and share a romantic, passionate kiss)\\

'''Robin''': I hate to disappoint you but...(peals off his rubber lips) rubber lips are immune to your charms.\\
(Poison Ivy stares in horror at the rubber lips before turning back to Robin, [[DeathGlare glaring]] at him for stealing a kiss from her)

* The bisexual [[GenderBlenderName Sam]] does this to Shadow in ''Literature/AmericanGods'' as a TakeThat to everyone else in the bar they've gone to--he's getting arrested on trumped-up charges, and she's making it clear to everyone that she's not buying it.
* As indicated above, ''Literature/TheBrothersKaramazov'' has both Christ's kiss to the Great Inquisitor and the kiss Alyosha, inspired by it, plants on Ivan (who responds "That's plagiarism. But thank you.")
* In ''Literature/{{Holes}}'', this was the outlaw Kissin' Kate Barlow's [[ZorroMark signature]] when she murdered people.
* Otto Chriek in ''Discworld/TheTruth''. He arrives slightly late to the party when William De Worde goes to confront his father, and takes the man down with almost no effort, all the while talking about how easy it would be to fall off the wagon (he's a member of the Uberwald Temperance League, and thus is a vampire who has sworn off blood) and cause him no end of misery in the process... then notes that William thinks of him as a good man, and he likes William too much to destroy that image, so he sets him down, gives him a gentle kiss on the forehead, and charges him to make himself scarce before Otto changes his mind.
* In book 3 of J.R. Ward's vampiric erotica series The ''Literature/BlackDaggerBrotherhood'', there is a venomous exchange of words between HandicappedBadass, [[RapunzelHair Phury]], and another male vampire called [[{{Irony}} the]] [[TheAggressiveDrugDealer Reverend]], about the titular brotherhood. The heated back-and-forth at last comes to a head when the Reverend insinuates rather blatantly (and ''very'' derogatorily) that Phury maintains his [[CelibateHero celibacy]] because he is actually gay. Phury responds by [[HoYay planting a kiss on the guy]] that is described as being akin to a "punch between faces." Needless to say, [[YaoiFangirl many readers]] were thrilled at his ironic rebuttal to the accusation.
* [[spoiler: Selia]] does this to Isi in [[Literature/BooksOfBayern Forest-Born]], "like a girl kissing her favorite doll." {{Squick}}.
* [[Series/DoctorWho The Doctor]] kisses [[SmugSnake Sabbath]] in the Literature/EighthDoctorAdventures to put him off his guard and humiliate him for [[FoeYay stealing the Doctor's]] [[HeartTrauma heart]]. Admittedly, the Doctor had just [[ItMakesSenseInContext turned into a seal]] at the time, but the whole scene is filled with less than subtle subtext.

[[folder:Live Action TV]]
* In ''Series/{{Alias}}'', Sydney Bristow and her rival Anna Espinosa exchange several Take That Kisses without actually kissing. Anna starts the trend in the episode "Parity," when she kisses the security glass separating her from Sydney, making a lipstick mark and setting off the alarms before leaving Sydney trapped.
* Then there's the infamous incident on ''Series/AllInTheFamily'' where Sammy Davis Jr. -- ''the'' Sammy Davis Jr. -- poses for a picture with affable racist (yet avid fan) Archie Bunker, whereupon Davis kisses him on the cheek just before the camera snaps the picture, and exits while Archie is still stunned.
* In ''Series/PowerRangersTurbo'' Episode 28, "The fall of the Phantom", after Divatox has kidnapped Cassie and the Phantom Ranger, she takes the Phantom Ranger's power ruby (which is his life; if he doesn't get it, back he'll die) and gives it a nice, long, passionate kiss, basically telling the Phantom Ranger to kiss his life goodbye.
* In ''Series/PowerRangersTimeforce'' Episode 18 Nadira teasingly taunts a random bystander and kisses the glass between him and her while her soldiers keep him pinned to the glass.
* ''Series/TheBigBangTheory'' has dueling ones, both directed at third parties: as Leonard ends his date with Leslie, Penny comes back from a date with... some guy, and both of them then proceed to kiss their respective [[RomanticFalseLead alternate partners]] with rather more passion than strictly necessary or actually felt.
** When Sheldon loses a wrestling match and is pinned down by Penny, Penny and Amy take advantage of his immobility by giving him multiple Take That Kisses all over his face.
** An interesting case in "The Locomotion Manipulation": [[spoiler:Sheldon is angry at Amy for tricking him into a romantic dinner, and in an attempt at mocking her, kisses her forcefully. However, he apparently finds that kissing is more pleasurable than he thought.]]
* In ''Series/TheBorgias'', Rodrigo Borgia/Alexander VI kisses both his main enemies in the College of Cardinals with a brilliantly smug look on his face after beating them in the Papal election.
* Juan delivers one just 2 episodes in to ''Series/{{Borgia}}''. "We are a planet of Judases."
* In ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'', [[DarkActionGirl Faith]] plants one of these on Buffy's forehead during one of their many showdowns (in the episode "Enemies" season 3, episode 17).
** It was [[HoYay supposed to be on the lips,]] but the [[ExecutiveMeddling network said no]].
** Another ''Buffy'' example -- Angelus kisses Buffy after his FaceHeelTurn, and this time it ''is'' on the lips (he also kisses Spike [[AnywhereButTheirLips on the forehead]] in the same episode).
* In ''Series/ChinesePaladin'', Mo Yixi does this to the Saintess: he's in the midde of a DrowningOurRomanticSorrows binge; she tells him to snap out of it, and then he kisses her when she admits she's never been in love "but understands the principle."
* In "Zugzwang" of ''Series/CriminalMinds'', Maeve's stalker kisses Reid in front of her to prove that she's better than Maeve.
* In ''Series/DoctorWho'', the (Simm!) Master blows one of these at the Doctor, just as his army of Toclafane come down.
** River Song also blows a kiss to a SmugSnake about to have her shot, right before effortlessly and stylishly thwarting him.
** Not to mention ''Let's Kill Hitler'', where she does this to the Doctor, giving him a peck on the lips as they stand very much in each others' personal space bantering. The fact that it's [[spoiler:poisoned]] only serves to drive home the point.
* ''Series/ICarly'': In the episode ''iSaved Your Life'', Carly victoriously shuns away a girl who is hitting on Freddie by engaging him in a lengthy French Kiss right in front of the girl.
* ''Series/MurdochMysteries'': The young criminal mastermind James Gillies, who was pinned under Detective William Murdoch towards the end of "Midnight Train to Kingston," passionately kisses the older man on the mouth as a distraction so that he could free himself. There have been hints throughout the series that Gillies is gay, though, so the idea of using intimate physical contact to shock his opponent most likely stemmed from his attraction towards Murdoch, who is TallDarkAndHandsome and very smart.

''(Emily walks over and kisses the hell out of her girlfriend, then leaves)''\\
'''Mom:''' ''(biting her tongue)'' I-I'm gonna finish emtying the car.

(See ReallyGetsAround.)
