Question: Not-quited Love

Everybody's seen a show with two characters that would be perfect together. . . and it didn't happen. Who knows why it didn't happen. Maybe the writers hated us? Maybe they were saving us from our own delusions? What two characters did you think deserved the happily ever after?

Well the following two examples are probably not the best, but it is clear to me that Ziva and Tony are meant to be together in N.C.I.S. In the most recent Star Trek Enterprise that I am catching on HDNET, Archer and T'Pol have a tremendous amount of sexual tension, although there is an "alternate reality" where they are together.

ABC's Castle is built around this premise, but is too new. Like J.A.G., the two main characters are destined to be together, but cannot until the final episode.

Jed, I'm a firm believer in Jack O'Neill and Samatha Carter from Stargate SG-1. But it never happened. So sad.

Can it from book and/or movies too?

I have to be the first - Rhett and Scarlett!! Though their love was not unrequited, it was misunderstood. It was really mean of Margaret Mitchell to end the book they way she did. That's why we have to read the book and see the movie over and over, just to see if the ending will be different.

felix and oscar.

Burt and Ernie.

Tennessee Jed said...

Bev - you are simply too nice. You should know never to ask permission around here. As Yoda said (I think) "don't ask do!" Or, as somebody else once said (again, I think . . . ) "To ask permission is to seek denial." Scarlett and Rhett is probably the number one choice.

Andrew: Is this too obvious? Romeo and Juliet.

Writer X said...

Dang. Bev beat me to it: Scarlett and Rhett. Or, better yet, me and Rhett.

AndrewPrice said...

You people and your Gone With the Wind!

P.S. Burt and Ernie? Bev, you had a strange childhood! LOL!

Though the show is still running - - on the show “Bones” Agent Booth, and Bones. By the end of each show the sexual tension runs high, you think to yourself, “just do it already…sheesh,” …get married, have three kids, two dogs, and a partridge in a pear tree.

Dark Angel's Max and Logan --Max and me for that matter ;-)

Captain Kirk and any female who isn't an Earthling.

Scully & Mulder

I'm not sure if this was ever got resolved since I've only seen episodes out of order in syndication (since ended locally) and never got to the end: Farscape's John and Aeryn

AndrewPrice said...

USArtguy, I lost track of Farscape too.

What have you got against Earth women? ;-)

ArmChairGeneral said...

SG1 Carter and O'Neill right on!

BevfromNYC said...

Sorry Writer X, I couldn't resist. The GWTW urge is too strong.

Andrew, yes, I did...hey, Burt and Ernie really cared about each other...

Sculley and Mulder, that's a good one.

HOw about the Frankenstein Monster and Bride of Frankenstein.

Joel Farnham said...

Malcolm Reynolds and Inara Serra from the Firefly series.

AndrewPrice said...

Joel, I hadn't thought about them, but that's a good pairing as well!


Bev, I don't even know what to say. LOL!

I totally agree with the Bones and Castle couplings.

As for my dream couple...Dylan and Kellie (90210). Yep, I'm that girl :)

AndrewPrice said...

Freedom21, I never watched 90210, but I've heard all about it. . . usually against my will! LOL!

I have to agree with several listed:
Boothe & Brennan - but NOT yet!!
(same show, Hodgins & Angela need to get back together)
same for Ziva & Tony - but NOT yet!! (and sometimes I think that they shouldn't)
and a HECK Yeah for Carter & ONeill. I lost SciFi about 3 seasons from the end (when it seems to have gotten weird) and was saddened to learn that they didn't. Weren't they together in one ot the alternate realities that occured?
On Angel - Angel & Cordelia, but she left before they got there
Oh, and Romeo & Juliet and Rhett & Scarlet got what they deserved!!!

CrispyRice said...

"To ask permission is to seek denial." Ooooh, I like that! I've personally always used "It is better to ask forgiveness than permission" but I like your saying better, Jed!

On the topic, ummm... I'm a sucker for unhappy endings and "un-requited-ness." If neither party has the guts to speak up and make it happen, then let 'em rot and suffer, I say!

Cyrano is my hero, and it would've been RUINED if he had won Roxanne and lived to tell about it.
