* The "quotative like" is discussed in [[http://xkcd.com/1483/ this]] ''Webcomic/{{Xkcd}}'' strip. (Is the linguist's quote just a statement about how language evolves - [[AmbiguouslyEvil or a death threat]]?)

* Felecia from Webcomic/OzyAndMillie doesn't play this up much, but does it often enough that it comes up when she gets sent to the pshychyatrist.
-->'''Felicia:''' Are you sure saying "like" every other word causes fatal brain warts?
-->'''Dr. Wahnsinnig:''' If it'll make you stop-yes, absolutely positive.

Right, that's enough of that...hopefully you can see how unclear and annoying that can make dialogue! This trope definitely needs to be used sparingly, unless you really want to make a character TheScrappy.

* Adverbs, when it can mean 'nearly' or 'about' - "She's only, like, 5 miles away", or 'for example' - "You could catch, like, herpes".
* Quotatives, when you wish to quote another character - "she was like, 'Like is totally a quotative!'"
* 'Hedges', when you want to show you don't quite mean what you're saying literally, but as simile or hyperbole - "I, like, died".
* '[[RealisticDictionisUnrealistic Fillers]]', if you don't wanna use, like, "um..." or "er...".

This is, like, TruthInTelevision, as many parents will gripe about this trope - although people ''will'' use it in TotallyRadical ways that don't match any actual teenagers' speech. Also a prominent trait of the ValleyGirl.

* Yudacchi in the [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Anime/KantaiCollection Kancolle]] anime ends her sentences in ''POI''. This is essentially the Japanese version of like and is used to simulate the Japanese equivalent of the valley girl. Interestingly enough this has not made her the scrappy as warned above, rather it actually made her an {{ascended meme}}. To the point where even in the english sub her ''poi''s are kept in.
