* In certain cultures and eras, it was common (especially for rich people) to hire professional mourners for funerals, and these people were usually women. This is a surprisingly common phenomenon - we see it in Ancient Egypt, but also China and India, even certain parts medieval Europe. In China, this custom allegedly still lives; Chinese professional mourners, apart from crying, also do things like sing songs and recite eulogies.

* The TropeNamer comes from the film ''Film/ConanTheBarbarian1982''. Conan tenderly dresses the corpse of Valeria, the love of his life, as he prepares her funeral pyre for her journey to Valhalla.

He will not cry, so I cry for him."''

** Played quite literally in "[[Recap/StarTrekTheNextGenerationS3E23Sarek Sarek]]". Sarek's Bendii Syndrome causes him to lose the emotional discipline that Vulcans are so proud of and famous for, potentially putting him in a situation of compromising a very important diplomatic mission. The solution is for him to mind-meld with Captain Picard, allowing Picard to (privately, and rather explosively) express all of Sarek's pent-up emotions while Sarek carries out the negotiations.
