There is a piece of vital information that would clear up a character's problems, whether it is a misunderstanding of romance or combat. If the character just spit it out already, it would save entire episodes, if not entire ''seasons'' worth of trouble and tears.

Sometimes, the reason one for this is because the other side [[OneSideOfTheStory won't]] [[NotNowKiddo let them]]. Or else they seem to have a [[SelectiveObliviousness wall around their mind]] against the information.

Other times the character is just an ass. While the IneffectualLoner has many chances to clarify his role, most of the time he'll just tell the heroes to [[FigureItOutYourself figure it out themselves]].

Of course, any time someone finally summons up the courage to actually say it, they will be [[FalseStart interrupted]]. It could be sudden events in the plot taking priority, or another of their circle of friends suddenly feels the need to announce some unimportant item that needs everyone's attention right now. [[MomentKiller The moment is lost]], and even when it isn't, they likely won't be [[CassandraTruth believed]] anyway. And sometimes, most tragically of all, the character or the person to whom this needs to be said will die or be otherwise lost forever just as the character has gotten up the courage to make his or her feelings known.

* In the first two seasons of ''Franchise/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'', the villains have their own reasons for doing what they're doing, but refuse to tell why despite Nanoha wanting to talk to them. Nanoha (whose main characteristic is her honesty and straightforwardness) decides that the only way to get them to explain their actions is to [[DefeatMeansFriendship beat them in combat]] and [[WarriorTherapist demand an explanation]]. It works.

* Every time Haru from ''Manga/{{Ojojojo}}'' makes an effort to say something genuinely nice or sincere to Tsurezure (or anyone else), she reflexively twists her words into something condescending. She gets a little better about it over time.
