Years ago The Atlantic used to have a feature about one shot encounters between historic or literary figures. They were usually anticlimactic, which I guess was sort of the point, but I enjoyed reading them, even though I can't think of a particular example right at the moment. I was reminded of this by "Groucho and Tom" (via Making Light):

What a brilliant and rollicking dinner —
had only J. Alfred Prufrock and Rufus T. Firefly
arrived. But now, the after-dinner cheese
removed, only two old men are here, to face
each other, across a table. Time
for the living room, to linger
over a vintage port. They talk
of weather, and cats, and good cigars . . .
well into the pleasing night.
