* In ''Amazing ComicBook/SpiderMan'' #143 (1974), Mary Jane Watson accompanies Peter Parker to JFK airport from where he and Robbie Robertson are going to fly to Paris for a story.

It is a good kiss, and a major turning point in their relationship, and set up that their love had now grown so strong that not even the introduction of Gwen Stacy's clone (that very issue) could derail it.

* ''VideoGame/GrimFandango'' does an alternative take on this with [[spoiler:Glottis being unable to go beyond the Land of the Dead with Manny and Meché; whilst it obviously isn't romantic in any way, it's still a potential tear jerker through Glottis embracing Manny and crying about how he's the best boss he's ever had.]]
