* In ''WesternAnimation/TotalDramaPahkitewIsland,'' this is a RunningGag with Rodney--[[InLoveWithLove he falls in love with at least one girl every episode]], and then becomes a sputtering mess around them. As a result, [[ObliviousToLove they never figure it out]] and just think that he's weird.

* Shining Armor falls victim to this in the ''ComicBook/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' IDW comic storyline ''neigh anything'' (issues 11 and 12), for that's the storyline that tells us how he met Cadance.
** When she comes over to foalsit his little sister Twilight Sparkle, he takes the chance and makes himself known to her, but awkwardly so:
--> "hE'''L'''L''o''"
** It gets even worse at the fall formal when he first beholds her in her ballgown:
--> '''Cadance:''' "Hello, Shining Armor."\\
'''Shining Armor:''' "Hur derp werp?"\\
'''Cadance:''' "[[LampshadeHanging I think, by the end of the night, we'll be able to work you all the way up to coherent sentences.]]"

Compare LoveMakesYouDumb and LoveMakesYouCrazy. Compare and contrast {{Angrish}}. May lead to EvenTheSubtitlerIsStumped. See also IUhYouToo (for when the relationship's evolved a bit before the gibberish), CannotSpitItOut, and CrushBlush.

* DependingOnTheWriter, Peter Parker (i.e. ComicBook/SpiderMan) struggles to talk to girls, unless the topic is science. One notable occasion was during the opening chapter of ''American Son'', where him and Harry Osborn try to pick up two girls, but all he can say is he takes photos, then babbles how he doesn't mean he takes pornographic photos. Harry has to guilt trip the girls into giving him their numbers and excuse Peter's dorkiness.

He has been struck by gibberish of love. Sometimes caused by DistractedByTheSexy or a HelloNurse, it doesn't even have to be a sentence using words -- plain noises work just as well. Occassionally happens if TwiceShy style love interests attempt conversation. If the man is TheCharmer, or even TheCasanova, it often indicates LadykillerInLove; sincerity of feeling kills his fluency dead.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/BlackPanther'', Downplayed, but Okoye teases him for "freezing" in front of his ex Nakia, which mostly consists of him being unable to do much more than say "hi" and smile at her. He's able to articulate his feelings better later on.
