Trope in romance and romantic comedy / From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In film and television, a meet cute is a scene in which the two people who will form a future romantic couple meet for the first time, typically under unusual, humorous, or cute circumstances.[1]

This type of scene is a staple of romantic comedies, though it can also occur in sitcoms and even soap operas. Frequently, the meet cute leads to a humorous clash of personalities or of beliefs, embarrassing situations, or comical misunderstandings that further drive the plot.
