Answers to the ships meme

I unscreened all the comments to the original post in case anyone wants to see who guessed what. carmen_sandiego was the big winner with eight correct guesses!

(01) She saved the president of the United States; she met Nikola Tesla at the 1893 World’s Fair. Myka/H.G. Wells - Warehouse 13
(02) Her favorite flavor of yogurt is mixed berry; he thinks their bread is very good. Pam/Jim - The Office
(03) When he was nine years old he wanted to be a brontosaurus; when she was nine years old she shot her stepfather. Peter/Olivia - Fringe
(04) He’s just not the hero type; she forgets to wear deodorant and dances with her boss in a room full of people she works with in a dress with no back. Tony/Pepper - Iron Man
(05) She once saw a horse kill a clown; he only uses violence as an appropriate response. Parker/Eliot - Leverage
(06) He is the obligatory psychotic jackass; she’s smarter than you. Logan/Veronica - Veronica Mars
(07) He doesn’t know what kind of Commie share-fest you're running over in Cavetown; she wasn’t on the manifest. James/Juliet - Lost
(08) His age is impossible to determine; she can move things with her mind. Logan/Jean - X-Men
(09) He has a very sensitive system; her penmanship is distinctive. Josh/Donna - The West Wing
(10) He thinks The Scarlet Letter is about a gal named Scarlet; she wants to define herself instead of having others define her. Tim/Tyra - Friday Night Lights
(11) She has a lively, playful disposition; he has a propensity to hate everybody. Elizabeth/Darcy - Pride and Prejudice
(12) He does not love the bright sword for its sharpness; she’s not a man, but she can ride and wield a blade. Faramir/Eowyn - The Lord of the Rings
(13) He doesn’t tan, date, or sing in public; she’s known a lot of demons and, slime aside, not a lot going on there. Angel/Cordelia - Angel
(14) He doesn’t carry a bag because he could never deprive the world of the portion of his chest the strap would cover; she doesn’t improvise her life like someone who has really bad credit and an unfinished mermaid tattoo. Jeff/Annie - Community
(15) He spent six weeks on a moon where the principal form of recreation was juggling geese; she’s torn up plenty, but she’ll fly true. Wash/Zoe - Firefly
(16) She has a fear of frogs; he’s a wolf in sheep’s clothing. Willow/Oz - Buffy the Vampire Slayer
(17) He has an unnatural obsession with fruit; she spent her childhood trying to figure out if her dad was only mean or just plain bad. Charlie/Dani - Life
(18) He doesn’t feel like he deserves a smoothie; she’s the queen of whisper-yelling. Eric/Tami - Friday Night Lights
(19) She actually has a Masters degree from the University of California at Berkeley; he’s not wild about ice-skating. C.J./Danny - The West Wing
(20) She’s one of the youngest women to ever make homicide detective; he has property on the moon. Beckett/Castle - Castle

I think I made Coach and Mrs. Coach too hard, which was why no one got them, and I'm not at all surprised no one guessed Charlie/Dani from Life. (Seriously, y'all, that was an AMAZING show--if you have not seen it go check it out. You will not regret it.) I am a little appalled that no one got Parker and Eliot, though. Where my Leverage peeps at?
