To be basic, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin when something happens that leaves a character babbling like an idiot]]. This can be the result of something shocking being said, which would lead to having so many emotions and thoughts at once that it becomes hard to form a complete sentence, to times when something afflicting a person leaves them unable to communicate with others. This can be especially frequent for an embarrassed {{Tsundere}}, which can be a form of [[FetishFuel fan service]].

For some odd reason, when something like this happens, people don't always know why. This can be especially strange if their [[GibberishOfLove babbling]] is [[CannotSpitItOut caused]] by [[ObliviousToLove embarrassment about a crush on someone]].
