A four-phase contact point, e.g., in merging of immiscible drops, is the point where the liquid-liquid interface advances along the contact line of one drop. The dynamics of drop merging involve various driving and dissipating forces in the dynamics of the four-phase contact point. The viscous friction, i.e. the flow field, within liquids is influenced by the different boundary conditions on the different interfaces (liquid-gas, liquid-liquid, liquid-solid). Additionally, Marangoni stresses between the two liquids and the spreading coefficients along the contact lines play a role. Effectively, these effects lead to a capillary force acting on the four-phase contact point. In total, the situation resembles the capillary flow in open V-shaped groove. The important difference is that, in the classical problem, the grooves are made out of two solid walls, but in the present case one of the *walls* is liquid, i.e., flowable and deformable. We investigate a range of liquids with different combination of physical properties (viscosity ratio, surface and interfacial tensions). The results show a good qualitative agreement for different liquids of the experimental results with the classical Washburn equation (h~square root of time), where h is the filled length of the *groove*.
