[[caption-width-right:175:[[WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}} This concept of "wuv" confuses and infuriates us!]]]]

->''"Mr. and Mrs. Drebin, please -- I'm diabetic."''
-->-- '''Marriage Counselor:''', ''Film/TheNakedGun 33 ⅓''

Some marriages [[DestructiveRomance are painful]], [[NoAccountingForTaste others are]] [[DeadSparks dead]], [[HappilyMarried a few are happy]], and then there are those which are... ''[[TastesLikeDiabetes cute]]''.

They use pet names even FluffyTheTerrible winces at, cuddle incessantly, ''never'' argue (unless you count their "you're cuter" exchanges as such) and basically turn all nearby salt into sugar. They might sometimes wear CoordinatedClothes to make sure everybody notices they belong together. Usually, they're as [[ThePollyanna indestructibly upbeat]] as you think. Other times, the show will delight in giving them one ''tiny'' imperfection, problem, or SingleIssueWonk that makes them turn into TheMasochismTango.

Commonly associated with InsatiableNewlyweds. See also GlurgeAddict. A SisterTrope to MakeOutKids, when a couple makes others feel uncomfortable by being very affectionate in public.



[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* In ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'':
** Hughes has this kind of extreme affection for his wife Gracia and his daughter Elicia, but perhaps atypically, it makes him really likeable rather than annoying. It helps that he's a pretty {{Badass}} KnifeNut.
** Sig and Izumi Curtis (of all people) are so lovey-dovey that they traumatized Ed and Al when they were kids. They hang on each other, invoke sparkly backgrounds, had a MeetCute involving a bear carcass, and frequently [[BattleCouple kick ass together]] while cooing at each other. Go figure.
** Played with when [[ColonelBadass Roy Mustang]]'s devoted aide Riza Hawkeye goes on vacation for a few days, and he proceeds to spend every waking moment on the phone acting like this with his girlfriend Elizabeth. He promises to bring her gifts, speaks fawningly and adoringly, and constantly has little sparkles and hearts roaming around his head. He even admits that the only reason he can get away with this behavior is because his "scary assistant" isn't around to baby-sit him. [[spoiler:The twist comes in when it's revealed that "Elizabeth" is Riza all along - she's on an undercover assignment and all the flirting ([[SubordinateExcuse most of it, anyway]]) is their very intricate code by which she passes information to him.]]
* Chet and Addy in ''[[JungleWaItsumoHaleNochiGuu Haré+ Guu]]''. Even the romantically-minded Marie refers to them as "Chetttttt" and "Addyyyyyy".
** It's mentioned that every once [[NoPeriodsPeriod a Month]] Adi gets into a fight with Chet over the stupidest things. But always gets back together with him after he says some sappy line.
* Kazuya and Akane at the end of ''Anime/MaiHime'', possibly to balance that out their counterparts put in an impossible position in ''Anime/MaiOtome''.
* Umi's parents in ''Manga/MagicKnightRayearth'' are more than HappilyMarried. They take any excuse to fawn and coo all over each other. Even Umi herself is thoroughly disgusted by their incessant, diabetes-inducing displays of affection and refers to it as "the perpetual honeymoon".
* Similarly, Mimi's parents in ''Anime/DigimonAdventure''.
* In ''InfiniteRyvius'', Lilith and Emerson, to the point where they're nicknamed the "Love Love Couple". However, they [[CharacterDevelopment slowly grow apart]] over the course of the series.
* Pedro from ''Anime/ExcelSaga'' had this kind of relationship with his family... [[BigNo until everything went horribly wrong]].
* In ''Gals!'', Ran and Tatsuki call themselves a stupid couple
* In ''VisualNovel/SchoolDays'', Makoto and Sekai are called a stupid couple by Hikari.
* Kanade and Yukino from ''CandyBoy''. Yes, [[SchoolgirlLesbians they're both girls]]. They are also [[{{Twincest}} fraternal twin sisters]].
* Honoka and Ginji Kawai in ''MagicalProjectS''.
* [[LesYay Noriko and Shimako]] from ''LightNovel/MariaSamaGaMiteru'', which leads to some mild teasing by the other girls of the student council.
* ''TokyoMewMew'': Ichigo's parents couldn't be lovey-dovier if they tried.
* Hayashi and Morimoto from ''{{Godannar}}'' seem to exist only for comic relief and to annoy characters with less-than-perfect relationships. At least until the DistantFinale, where [[spoiler:Hayashi is revealed as ChekhovsGunman]]
* ''LovelyComplex'': Nakao and Ishihara fit this perfectly.
* From ''VampireKnight'', we have [[spoiler: Yuuki's parents, Haruka and Juuri]].
* Subverted in ''{{Durarara}}'': Seiji Yagiri and his girlfriend [[spoiler:Mika Harima]] ''look'' to everyone like SickeninglySweethearts that spend all their free time whispering sweet nothings into each other's ear... and then you actually ''hear'' what those sweet nothings are and realize that they're probably [[MindGameShip the most dysfunctional couple ever.]]
-->'''Seiji:''' [[ALoveToDismember I'm in love with the scars on your neck...]]
** Just to make it clear, they're both utterly bug-duck crazy: [[spoiler:Mika was Seji's stalker until he took a baseball bat to her skull for finding a decapitated head when she broke into his apartment. She got plastic surgery to look like Seiji's true love, making Seiji think Mika was said true love, and they got together. Then the truth came out, but the pair are so crazy they stick together anyway. Oh, and Seiji's true love was said previously mentioned decapitated head, which his incestuous big sister got rid of because she wanted one less rival for her brother's affections (but that's another story)...]] Did we mention they were crazy yet?
* Michi and Yoshirin, the young couple from ''CrayonShinChan'', are a clear parody of this trope. Apart from occasional (and pretty dumb) break-ups, all they do on the series is be lovey-dovey with each other. At least on the original and Spanish dubs.
* Mr and Mrs Feng from ''Literature/HalfPrince'', who are constantly happy with each other while on-screen and their off-screen moments are explained by repeated honeymoons they go on, to the point that [[ParentalAbandonment their twin children practically had to raise themselves]].
* Yuuki and Yume from ''{{Kanamemo}}'', and not even Yuuki's jealousy or Yume's ditziness can put any dents in that.
* In an anime-only episode of ''RanmaOneHalf'', [[BelligerentSexualTension Ranma and Akane]] turn into this couple for an afternoon due to [[LovePotion "love mushrooms".]] Made hilarious by lots of irony, [[TheRival jealous rivals]], [[ShipperOnDeck shippers on deck]], and [[HilarityEnsues shenanigans all around]].
** In a different episode, Ranma and Akane pretend to be this type of couple [[PleaseDumpMe to get Ukyo out of the Tendo household]]. Unfortunately for them, they've made a habit of arguing and find being lovey-dovey with each other a daunting task. But hey, it makes for good television!
* Ayano and Shimotakatani from ''HighSchoolGirls'' are constantly like this, to the disgust of Ayano's boyfriend-less friends.
* Himeno's father Kaoru and her (very wealthy) stepmother Natsue from ''{{Pretear}}'', to the embarassment of their daughters.
* Yukio Ayashiro and his wife Noriko in a two-part episode of ''Manga/DetectiveConan''. It's a little more justified as they had ''just'' gotten married, tho. Their old friend and the local PrivateDefective Kogoro openly lampshades the trope:
-->'''Kogoro''': Hey, you two! How long do you plan on [[TastesLikeDiabetes keep playing cutesy]]?
* [[SayMyName Tamahome! Miaka! Tamahome! Miaka!]] in ''FushigiYuugi''.
* ''ShamanKing'' has Faust and Eliza. When they're first introduced, it seems more like LoveMakesYouEvil or MummiesAtTheDinnerTable, but when Anna reunites them with her Itako powers, they definitely fit this trope. They even flirt during a major fight, and he carries her around [[BridalCarry Bridal Style]] while crossing a river.
* Katsuo and his wife in ''YakitateJapan''. Their cutesy gushing only helped to encourage Kuroyanagi to eliminate Katsuo in the semi-finals of one TournamentArc.
* ''EurekaSeven'': Count the times Eureka and Renton argue with each other, come on. That's right, 1. They argued ''once'' in a 50-episode show. And that scene lasted shorter than 1 minute. They also tend to say each others names plenty of times.
* Uranborg and Arkangel from the BL manga "Yasashii Ryuu no Koroshikata" after their RelationshipUpgrade. Most of it is Uru constantly fawning over Ark, declaring his love and unending devotion to his "pledged one", especially after they get together. When Ark finally reciprocates, he eats Uru's words up like candy when he isn't getting shy over it. Take a look. (Warning: Spoiler.) [[http://www.mangareader.net/yasashii-ryuu-no-koroshikata/11/50]]
* In ''Anime/FutariWaPrettyCure,'' the {{Non Human Sidekick}}s [[http://img1.ak.crunchyroll.com/i/spire1/1a4c282da75334515d953873c41902c01241725258_full.jpg Mepple and Mipple]] [[http://animewriter.files.wordpress.com/2008/03/mipple-and-mepple-happy.jpg adorably glomp and dance around with each other and such whenever they are reunited.]] There is eyerolling from Nagisa, but Honoka always smiles at it.
* ''LightNovel/SwordArtOnline'': In the opinion of their friends, Kirito and Asuna "can't keep their hands off each other" whether they're in real life or [=ALO=]. Said friends are also {{Romantic Runnerup}}s so take it with a grain of salt.

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* Apollo and The Midnighter from ''ComicBook/TheAuthority'', surprisingly. They have well-deserved reputations for violence and brutality, but even their teammates will tell them to get a room once the fighting's done and the sweet, still-covered-in-blood-and-rubble canoodling begins.
* Hourman and Liberty Belle in ''JusticeSocietyOfAmerica''. Thankfully, the lovey-dovey stuff doesn't get in the way of them kicking ass in battle.
* One dialogue from ''Comicbook/{{Empowered}}'': "No, you should wear that outfit (tee hee)!" - "No, you should wear that outfit (tee hee)!" No wonder the Caged Demonwolf [[ImagineSpot imagines a scene]] with better dialogue, in his usual [[PurpleProse flowery style]].
* In ''MonicasGang'': in the teenage spinoff, Monica and Jimmy Five abandon their normal personalities of {{Tsundere}} and JerkWithAHeartOfGold and become one of these when they finally start dating. This ends up disgusting the other characters so badly that many of them start to root explicitly for the breakup of the couple.
* Aang and Katara become this in ''Comicbook/AvatarTheLastAirbenderThePromise.''
** Dubbed the oogies by Katara's brother Sokka.
* The group in ''Comicbook/{{Runaways}}'' has this reaction when Chase and Gert start using pet names for each other.
-->'''Victor:''' They're using those pet names ironically, right?
-->'''Nico:''' God, I hope so.
* Barbie and Ken from ''ComicBook/TheSandman''. They wear matching outfits, finish each other's sentences, and always have an arm around the other. This appears to be a facade on both their parts. We later get to see their most personal dreams and it's revealed that nice guy Ken dreams of sex (not with his wife), money and power, while the shallow Barbie is seen dreaming of adventure and bravery.
* Will Vandom and Matt Olsen in ''ComicBook/{{WITCH}}''. Usually the others take it in stride (especially Cornelia, who sometimes is almost as bad as them), but a particular accident in the New Power saga caused them to have faces the readers can't tell if they're moved or sickened (with Hay Lin verging on laughing herself silly).

[[folder:Fan Works]]
* ''FanFic/TheTwilightChild'': While Big Macintosh and Cheerilee (see Western Animation) talk like this when afflicted by a love poison, Shining Armor and Cadence are like this naturally, all the time.
* ''FanFic/OnACrossAndArrow'': Rarity and Elusive, in their [[LargeHam own way]], as well as Fluttershy and Butterscotch, in a more awkward and shy sense.
* ''FanFic/{{Scootamom}}'': Cadence and Shining Armor, again, much to Scootaloo's disgust whenever she has to witness it.
* ''FanFic/TheInfiniteLoops'': Almost any Looping couple is liable to be like this. Korra and Asami, for example, who spend one Loop being nothing but this. Which annoys Mako, on account of their replacing Belle and Beast (he's replacing one of the servants, and is still cursed because they haven't bothered lifting it).


* Creator/WinsorMcCay had a couple like this in one of his early minor features.
* In ''Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit'', this proved to be Jessica and Roger's relationship.
* Spoofed in the movie ''Film/TheNakedGun 33 ⅓: The Final Insult''. While at marriage counseling, Frank and Jane start calling each other sappy pet names. At first the therapist smiles at the display, but after a few more he says "Mr. and Mrs. Drebin, [[TastesLikeDiabetes I'm a diabetic]]. I think you two ought to go now."
* Googly-Bear and Schmootzy-Poo (aka Mike and Celia) in ''WesternAnimation/MonstersInc.''
** Leading to a CrowningMomentOfFunny when Celia refers to Sulley as "Sulley-Wulley" and he reacts in a combination of taking it in stride (calling her "Celia-Welia") and "What the...?"
* In ''Film/TheMummyReturns'', whenever Evelyn and Rick kiss, they'll get a disgusted look and the "Find yourself a room" comments from their son and/or Evelyn's brother Jonathan.
* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Antz}}'', Chip and Muffy (the CulturalPosturing wasps). Chip is referring to Muffy as "Cuddly Widdles" and "Wattling Kiddles".
* Barbie and Ken from ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory3''. Buzz makes a "you have got to be kidding me" facial expression after overhearing a conversation between them.
* The pair of robbers (Amanda Plummer and Tim Roth) at the [[HowWeGotHere end and beginning]] of ''Film/PulpFiction'' are this. They're even credited as "Pumpkin" and "Honey Bunny."
* Parodied in ''Film/ChittyChittyBangBang'' in the song [[http://www.6lyrics.com/chu_chi_face-lyrics-chitty_chitty_bang_bang.aspx "Chu Chi Face."]] (And you're my teddy bear. Together we're a Chu-Chi Woo-Chi, Ooo-Chi Coo-Chi Pair!) Of course, the entire time the Baron and Baroness are singing this to each other, he's trying to arrange an untimely death for her, resulting in her getting more and more nervous and uneasy as the song progresses.
* The {{love potion}} from ''WesternAnimation/StrangeMagic'' causes this among the various denizens, much to the disgust of the two leads.

* There's a character (Manilov) in {{Gogol}}'s ''DeadSouls'' who shares with his wife a sickeningly sweet affection.
* Lavender and Ron in ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheHalfBloodPrince''. On second thought, just Lavender.
-->"...if Ron was going to begin calling her 'Lav-Lav', he [Harry] would have to put his foot down."
** Bill and Fleur fit this trope as well, especially if you ask Ginny and Hermione.
** When contemplating the idea of Ron and Hermione getting together, Harry fears (among other things) that they might turn out like this, using Bill and Fleur as an example.
* Parodied in one of the ''Literature/JWWellsAndCo'' novels by Creator/TomHolt, where a bickering couple are tricked into overdosing on love potion. They start using pet names at the end of every sentence but retain their normal personalities, leading to sentences like, "Don't be such a bloody idiot, honey-bunny".
* ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'':
** Edward and Bella
** Alice and Jasper.
** Heck, just about every couple from the books.
** Every vampire couple. The only human couples worth mentioning are either broken up (Bella's parents, Jessica and Mike), basically nonexistent (Angela and Ben), or barely begun by the end of the series (Charlie and Sue Clearwater).
** The werewolves and the girls that they imprint on. To the point in which the other wolves in the pack do not look forward to mindlinking with a wolf who had just been visiting his imprintee.
* In the second book of the ''Literature/GuardiansOfGaHoole'' series, the Band comes across a pair of owls that do not give their names but refer to each other as Sweetums and Swatums. They preen each other and talk about eating sugar gliders while speaking to the group.
* In Salman Rushdie's ''HarounAndTheSeaOfStories'' Prince Bolo and Princess Batcheat are like this, to the disgust of absolutely everyone around them. Bolo is so oblivious (and stupid) that he constantly praises the silly Batcheat for her beauty and her singing voice, both of which are described in detail as completely horrendous.
* Bingo Little and [[spoiler:his wife, Rosie]] in the ''Literature/JeevesAndWooster'' series. Bertie attributes this to the fact that [[spoiler:[[ThinksLikeARomanceNovel Rosie is a romance novelist]]]].
* ''Literature/TalesOfKolmar'': As newlyweds, Lanen and Varien are like this, with Jamie even hanging a lampshade on it and them teasing each other about trying to tone it down in front of him. However, they do find difficulties, pains and sorrows and arguments that can't be soothed away with a touch or a few words, and eventually the relationship smooths into HappilyMarried. They still get silly sometimes, but Lanen notes that their bond is more complex now.
* In Creator/RickRiordan's ''Literature/TheHeroesOfOlympus'' book ''The Mark of Athena'', Rhea and Tiberinus.
* ''Literature/TheHungerGames'': Katniss and Peeta sometimes make use of this trope to sell their (maybe not entirely) fake romance to the Capitol audience.
* In ''Literature/Half Prince'', Wacko/Neurotic and Dandan. Makes it hard to believe that they're the [[spoiler: ninth and fifth strongest players respectively.]]
%% * ''Literature/TheMortalInstruments'': Clary sees [[spoiler:Luke and her mother Jocelyn]] as this.
* Crown Prince Roger and his girlfriend Rivka in the Literature/HonorHarrington novel ''Ashes of Victory'', though they're not seen onscreen; the Queen's chief bodyguard calls them "unbearable adolescent goo". When they do get actual screen time in ''A Rising Thunder'' for their wedding, they've gotten over it.
* In 'Literature/VorkosiganSaga' Rene and Tatya are cuter then cute together. And they're Barrayarans. What is Barrayar coming to?

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* ''Series/{{Smallville}}'':
** Chloe and [[spoiler:Jimmy]] could be this on one of their good days. Just look at Clark's expression whenever he walks in on them kissing. In one episode, it's mentioned that Lois--who was then-currently living with Chloe--wants to move away solely to ''get away from their constant lovemaking'', noting that it's just extremely awkward when she hears them through the walls. In another episode, poor Clark walks into their apartment and finds evidence of their, um, ''hobbies'' lying around.
** Clark and Lana on one of their... er, bad days?
* The "Soup Nazi" episode of ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}'' where several of the characters in relationships had a sort of competition to be the most sickeningly sweet. "You're shmoopy!" -- "No ''you're'' shmoopy!"-- George to Elaine: "I had to listen to them for 15 minutes arguing over which one of them was 'Shmoopy'."
** George tries to give Jerry a taste of his own medicine by invoking this with his fiancee, but it backfires because she likes it and doesn't want to stop.
* An episode of ''Series/CarolineInTheCity'' had Caroline sitting in a diner waiting for a friend, and being forced to sit through a couples wuvvy-duvvy baby talk and nicknames for each other. When her friend finally shows up, she asks, "Who are they?" Caroline responds, in total deadpan, "Billy-Bear and Cindy-Doodle. Satan sent them."
* ''Series/HowIMetYourMother'':
** One episode has Barney and Abby (Music/BritneySpears) pretend to be a couple like this in order to make fun of Ted. Barney then proposes to her, but he thought it was part of the act and she thought it was for real.
** When Ted and Robin were going out, they got Barney to do what they wanted once by threatening him with sickeningly sweet behaviour.
** Lily and Marshall occasionally lapse into this. For example, their [[AffectionateNickname pet names]] for each other are "Lilypad" and "Marshmallow". They share food and like wearing couples' costumes for Halloween.
** When Ted and Victoria started going out, it got to the point where ''Marshall and Lily'' were jealous of how lovey dovey they were!
* Danny and Lindsay on ''{{CSINY}}'' have been accused of this on occasion because of the back and forth comments and occasional flirting that come out when they're working together.
* ''Series/{{Frasier}}'':
** Niles and Daphne were like this for a while after they finally got together. If you [[WillTheyOrWontThey spend seven years pining after one girl]], you're allowed to be a little obnoxiously happy - but the other characters ere greatly relieved when they got over this phase.
** A later episode in the last season also has an interesting P.O.V based example; at one point, both Martin and Niles -- both of whom are in happy, stable relationships, Martin about to get married again and Niles married with his first child on the way -- sigh about how happy they are. From their perspective, it's merely a content but throwaway musing. Frasier, however, happens to be going through a particularly dismal time in his already pretty grim love life, so from ''his'' point-of-view, Martin and Niles are being insufferably smug and sneering about their good fortune.
** The episode "The New Friend" features an example of this, when Frasier gives Roz a present. It's not a romantic display of affection, but the effect on Niles is the same:
-->'''Roz:''' Oh, Frasier, I don't deserve your friendship.
-->'''Frasier:''' No, I do not deserve ''your'' friendship.
-->'''Niles:''' I deserve my own table; excuse me.

* Lilly and Oliver in ''HannahMontana'', after being friends since kindergarten, suddenly turn into this, even calling each other "Lilypop" and "Ollypop".
* ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'': Buffy and Spike, when one of Willow's [[PowerIncontinence accidental]] spells made them want to get married, treated each other like this. Both are disgusted when the spell wears off.
* ''Series/TrueBlood'':
** [[MommasBoy Hoyt]] and Jessica in Season 2, until [[spoiler:after enduring hours of abuse from his [[MyBelovedSmother mother]], Jessica quite justifiably snaps and snacks on Maxine's juicy jugular, thereby pushing Hoyt's RelativeButton.]]
** Sookie and Bill.
* In the "Howling Wind" episode of Creator/CirqueDuSoleil's WidgetSeries ''Solstrom'', a newlywed couple is soooooooooooo in love with each other that they barely pay attention to anything around them -- not even the fact that the honeymoon hotel they've just checked into has magically become a Gothic HellHotel.
* [[ButtMonkey Sweets]] and [[GenkiGirl Daisy]] from ''Series/{{Bones}}''. She calls him "Lancelot" (his first name is at least Lance, so it's an understandable nickname). It still makes you smile, even as you're trying not to vomit, because they're so ''matchingly'' dysfunctional.
-->'''Daisy:''' Bye, Lancelot! Colon, end bracket, colon, capital D!
-->'''Sweets:''' Semi-colon, end parenthesis, less than sign, numeral 3!!
-->'''Daisy:''' Colon, capital P!
-->'''[[OnlySaneMan Cam]]:''' Oh, dear God. I'm going to yak.
* A couple in an early episode of ''SeventhHeaven'' was this trope personified until the husband confessed to his wife that he'd never properly divorced his first wife. Much angst and screaming ensued and it was up to Eric to save the day.
* ''EverybodyLovesRaymond'':
** Ray and Debra go to Vermont to stay at a bed-and-breakfast for the weekend, and end up across the hall from a sickeningly sweet couple (who have only been dating for 6 weeks) who can't stop giggling and making sexual innuendos at each other. Ray and Debra stare in disbelief at this behavior. At one point, Ray and Debra are outside their room, when they hear the other couple (thanks to their obnoxiously loud giggling) and actually rush to find their keys to get into their room before the couple can turn the corner and talk to them.
** In another episode, Robert and Amy are acting like this shortly after getting married, which Ray and Debra don't mind too much — until Robert and Amy start giving Ray and Debra marriage advice. Ray and Debra, who have been married for over a decade, don't appreciate getting advice from newlyweds (or in Ray's words, from "the guy who married a stripper, then divorced a stripper, then married a regular person, then hung in there for three whole months"), and feel that Robert and Amy are being presumptuous, though Robert and Amy point out their observation that Ray and Debra really don't seem very happy most of the time. Then, the entire party is lectured by Marie and Frank, who--despite often butting heads--genuinely ''enjoy'' the witty back-and-forth between them; it's hinted that, despite the fact that Frank and Marie are definitely not this trope, they may actually have a happier and healthier marriage than either Robert and Amy or Ray and Debra, due to their complete honesty with one another and their mutual enjoyment of their back-and-forth. For Frank and Marie, the verbal sparring is a ''game'', and doesn't detract from the fact that [[AwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther they really do love each other]].
** Frank and Marie are HappilyMarried, but they ''did'' briefly morph into the personification of this trope during [[VacationEpisode the Italy episode]]. Ray in-universe thought it [[TastesLikeDiabetes tasted like diabetes]].
* On ''That70sShow'' the relationship between Jackie and Hyde makes Eric feel uncomfortable at first, despite being nothing like this. For Hyde, who is a JerkWithAHeartOfGold that probably ''is'' gooey and romantic.
-->'''Hyde:''' ''(on the phone with Jackie)'' Whatever. Whatever. Yeah, like I care. All right, I'll talk to you later, Jackie. ''(hangs up)''
-->'''Eric:''' Eww! Do you mind not getting all gooey and romantic when I'm about to eat my breakfast?
* Series/{{Chuck}}'s Alex and Morgan are one of the best example of this trope on television.
* Applies (at first glance) to any relationship on ''Series/PushingDaisies'', with the exception of those involving Emerson Cod.
* An odd example from ''Series/{{Community}}''. Jeff begins acting this way to Britta so that the school stops hating him. Then they both get into a bizarre competition of who can be the most nauseatingly romantic.
* On ''ThirdRockFromTheSun'', Dick and Mary are [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c0txTaEVDG8&t=7m50s like this]] whenever their on-off relationship is "on", to the great annoyance of the other Solomons and [[DependingOnTheWriter occasionally]] also Nina.
* ''Series/{{Angel}}'' has Fred and Gunn, complete with [[ShortDistancePhoneCall Short Distance Phone Calls]] and [[BattleCouple always fighting together]]. [[SarcasmMode Surprisingly]] [[HappilyMarried it]] [[JossWhedon doesn't]] [[RuleOfDrama last]].
* While most of their moments are well-done and genuinely touching, Bryan and David of ''TheNewNormal'' can verge on this at times.
* One of the biggest criticisms of season one of ''TeenWolf'' is that there was way too much of this between Allison and Scott. Season two eased up on this and turned them into more of a BattleCouple.
* ''Series/{{Vicious}}'' has this when bitter, old couple [[SnarkToSnarkCombat Freddie and Stuart]] have to tolerate Ash and his new, incredibly irritating girlfriend Chloe:
-->'''Ash:''' She never drinks, isn't that right Chloe?\\
'''Chloe:''' It's true. And nothing could give me more of a high that being with Ash...\\
'''Freddie:''' ''[[DeadpanSnarker Have you tried cocaine?]]''
* On ''Series/{{Friends}}'', Ross and Emily were briefly sickly sweet when they first started to be together. They went spontaneously to Vermont and Emily was excited about a deer eating fruit in the orchard, which excited Ross equally -- because she was so excited about it.
** Ross and Rachel had shades of this during their brief relationship. (Opposed to the TheMasochismTango of their break up). The writers comment on this, admitting it was hard to make the pair interesting while they were together.
** This contrasts with Monica/Chandler, who admit they can't pull off petnames like sweetums and pumpkin, and, on their honeymoon, get annoyed at another couple for being sickly sweet. (They're in love but in an 'orderly fashion'). They're still HappilyMarried, adore each other and unlike Ross and Rachel last for over half the series, implying sometimes the strongest relationships aren't mush all the time.

* The Irving Berlin song "Snooky Ookums" mocks the BabyTalk manners of a pint-sized man and his 180-pound wife:
-->She's his jelly-elly roll,\\
He's her sugey-ugar bowl.\\
Here's the way they bill and coo:\\
Poogy-woo, poogy-woo, poogy-woo.\\
All night long he calls her\\
Snooky Ookums, Snooky Ookums.\\
All night long the neighbors shout:\\
"Cut it out! Cut it out! Cut it out!"
* The whole point of the song "Lucky" by Jason Mraz and ColbieCaillat. [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lucky_%28Jason_Mraz_song%29]]
* Mocked in the song "Mon coeur mon amour" ("My heart my love") by French singer Anaïs.
* "Disgustingly In Love" by MitchBenn.

[[folder: Mythology and Religion]]
* Either this trope and/or TrueLoveIsBoring to explain the shit [[GreekMythology Orpheus and Eurydice]] [[KillTheCutie go]] [[DownerEnding through.]]

[[folder:Newspaper Comics]]
* In ''ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes'', Hobbes tends to describe love to Calvin in terms likely to nauseate adults ("'Bitsy Pookums,' I'd say. 'Yes, Snoogy Woogy,' she'd reply..."), let alone a six-year-old inclined to believe that GirlsHaveCooties.
* "[[PortmanteauCoupleName Richandamy]]" from the comic strip ''{{Zits}}'' are a high school relationship taken all the way to symbiosis. The only time the two were ever seen not hugging was one strip where Rich was using the men's room. The rest of the cast are torn between a strange admiration and incredible disbelief towards them.
** Amusingly, Richandamy were based on two college friends of creator Jim Borgman. They were actually named Rich and Amy, he was tall and she was short, and they practically were that inseparable. They're now HappilyMarried with three kids.
* Peter and Denise of ''{{Foxtrot}}'' were known to be like this from time to time. One occasion featured them in a rather sweet moment, in which Peter talked about how unbelievably great it was to finally have a girlfriend like her. "''Just'' great?" she responds. "Okay, super-duper-ooper-great." "You're so cute." And of course Jason and Marcus are spying on them behind a clump of bushes, causing Jason to whisper: "If I'm ever that cute, shoot me dead."

* Thomas and Martha Jefferson in ''Theatre/SeventeenSeventySix''. Tom misses Martha so much that he's rendered [[WritersBlock completely unable]] to concentrate on writing the Declaration of Independence and Adams has to send for her. When she arrives, she and Tom glom onto each other to the extent that they don't even ''notice'' anyone else is in the room; afterwards, Martha has a number about just ''how much'' she loves Tom and his violin.

[[folder:Video Games]]
* A mod to ''BaldursGate 2: Throne of Bhaal'' adds a character who seeks out romance with Imoen. In one memorable exchange, they use so many consecutive pet names for each other that even the good-aligned party members find themselves tempted to agree with Sarevok's comment: "Say the word, and I will kill them both. ''Please.''"
** If like me you were ready to hunt across the Internet after reading that, it's [[http://www.pocketplane.net/kelsey kelsey]].
* ''Pokémon'' has several of these couples, who would constantly talk about "lovey-dovey" they are. For some creepy reason, they were often found in places like graveyards and abandoned ships.
** Because GirlsAreReallyScaredOfHorrorMovies (and by extension, scary places).
* HappilyMarried couple Maeda Toshiie and his wife Matsu from ''VideoGame/SengokuBasara''. On one occasion Toshi came to Matsu's rescue on the battlefield, and they shared a tender moment together, leaving their opponent Yukimura at a complete loss of what to do.
-->'''Yukimura:''' [[LeaveTheTwoLovebirdsAlone S-should I just leave them alone?...]]
* [[VideoGame/TalesOfSymphoniaDawnOfTheNewWorld Dawn of the New World]] has [[ApologisesAlot Emil]] [[TheWoobie Castagnier]] and [[ClingyJealousGirl Marta]] [[{{Tsundere}} Lualdi]].
** In ''VideoGame/TalesOfHearts'', Shing and Kohak. Other party members occasionally complain about it. At one point Hisui and Beryl actually raise their RelationshipValues through their mutual annoyance at the main couple's sheer couple-ness.
* The Dancing Couple from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'' (and later, ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask''), who seem completely oblivious to anything other than each other.
** While playing their mini-games in ''Majora's Mask'', you actually get the option to ''shoot them'' to increase your time limit. Much fun! And if you win, they say "That's annoying, so let's show off even more!"
* In the ''JakAndDaxter'' series, [[WeaselMascot Daxter]] and [[GeniusDitz Tess]] act like this. The smooching is pretty much non-existent [[InterspeciesRomance thanks to the species difference]], but the rest of the symptoms are there (baby talk, stupid nicknames, cuddling).
* In ''TalesOfMonkeyIsland'', Guybrush has an almost unlimited number of gooshingly sweet nicknames for Elaine, such as "plunder bunny".
** Which is also a plush toy rabbit designed explicitly to be used by smugglers. So, uh...maybe not quite as sweet as it sounds.
* If you romance Alistair or Leliana in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'', the other party members may accuse you of this. Even TeamMom Wynne.
** If you help two Dalish elves get together, they begin acting like this, while [[DeadpanSnarker Morrigan]] [[MemeticMutation disapproves]].
--->"Does anyone else feel the urge to vomit? No? 'Tis just me?"
*** And if Oghren's also in the party, he responds with:
--->"Naw, I'm right there with ya, babe."
* Merrill's romance arc in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'', especially on the Friendship path. Varric mentions that it'd be ''too'' adorable if she weren't [[BlackMagicianGirl a Blood Mage]]. Bethany asks if they have pet names during the "Legacy" mission, and a Sarcastic Hawke immediately comes up with some that make her regret asking.
--->'''Hawke:''' It's hard to imagine anyone more loveable than you.
--->'''Merrill:''' That's so untrue. ''I'' can think of someone.
* ''HarvestMoon'' couples have a tendency to be HappilyMarried, but the award for soppiest couple in the series probably goes to... Jake and Colleen, Maya's parents in ''Tree of Tranquility'' and ''Animal Parade.'' Jake compares ''everything'' to his beloved Colleen and absolutely lives to spoil her, at one point even [[spoiler: using the Wizard's crystal ball to read her mind to find out exactly what she wants]]. They're also constantly holding hands and cuddling. This probably explains why Maya is TheCutie--spending all her life around that kind of sappiness, what else would she be?
* In ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsJudgment'' [[BlueCometSPTLayzner David]] will remark he considers [[Anime/MartianSuccessorNadesico Minato and Tsukomi's reactions to each other]], albeit while they are kinda heartwarming, they still [[TastesLikeDiabetes trigger his gag reflex.]]
* [[TheSims Sims]] with a high mutual long-term attraction will get completely soppy in the presence of their loved ones. Spontaneous serenades and leaping into each other's arms is cute the first time. The [[OverlyLongGag 18th time in a row]], not so much.
* Bafflingly enough, female Shepard and Garrus - ''especially'' Garrus - dive headlong into this in the ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'' Citadel DLC. He makes the password to disarm your apartment's security system "I HEART GARRUS." After booby trapping it during conversations like these:
-->'''Garrus:''' Shepard, sweetie... love of my life, indulge your crazy boyfriend. I need to know you're safe.
-->'''Shepard:''' If it'll make you feel better, honey.
-->'''Zaeed:''' [''listening in''] Oh, [[GetARoom go get a room]]. God knows this place has enough of them.

[[folder:Visual Novels]]
* Phoenix plays one-half of this equation in the first case of ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorney: Trials And Tribulations''. Too bad for him that his sweetheart isn't anywhere near as into him as she pretends. [[spoiler: Okay, [[TwistEnding maybe]] [[TwinSwitch she]] [[BecomingTheMask is...]]]]

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* Abbey and Daisy from ''Webcomic/BittersweetCandyBowl''.
* ''[[http://www.webcomicsnation.com/boxbrown/bellen/series.php Bellen]]''.
* In ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'', this proved to be Therkla the [[HalfHumanHybrid half-orc's]] [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0555.html backstory]]. Stereotypically half-orcs are the product of rape.
* ''Webcomic/{{xkcd}}'': [[http://xkcd.com/515/ "No one must know."]]
** Same goes for two normally jerky classmates in ''Webcomic/GunnerkriggCourt''. Minus the murder.
* Tedd and Grace from ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive''.
* Ezekeil and Ariel in ''Webcomic/SinFest'', pictured above.
* ''Webcomic/SlightlyDamned'' has set a new bar for this trope with Buwaro and Kieri.
* Lampshaded and played for laughs in ''Webcomic/OurLittleAdventure''. Julie and Lenny go out on a date during their downtime and behave this way. The Elf waiter who is serving them seems to be [[MetaGuy reacting how the audience would.]]
* Parodied in ''Webcomic/QuestionableContent'', when Marten and Dora engage in cutesy banter...about necrophilia.
-->"At least they're not one of those sickeningly cute couples. [[{{Squick}} Just sickening]]."

[[folder:Web Original]]
* Cho and Cedric acting like this in ''AVeryPotterMusical'' piss Harry off to no end since he has a crush on Cho. It actually doesn't end well though [[spoiler: since Cedric gets murdered.]]
* ''WebVideo/TheLizzieBennetDiaries'': Jane Bennet and Bing Lee when they start dating. She bakes him home-made cookies. He watches romantic period drama with her and treats her like a princess, pretending to carpool when he in fact just keeps giving her a lift. Lizzie is happy for them, but she implies that sometimes they're too much to take and also that Jane has the "I-want-you-to-be-in-a-happy-relationship-like-myself" vibes which make her uncomfortable.
* ''WebAnimation/BarbieLifeInTheDreamhouse'' portrays Franchise/{{Barbie}} and Ken like this. For starters, the first episode begins with Barbie getting ready to celebrate the 43rd anniversary of the first time [[HoldingHands they held hands]], even revealing that she made Ken a card after failing to find one at the store.
* Due to the NoHuggingNoKissing tendency in ''Series/{{Noob}}'' the relationship between Arthéon and Kary gets depicted this way [[spoiler:until the Season 4 finale]].
* Would you believe a pair of boats can be this? [[Wiki/SCPFoundation SCP-1522]] is a pair of {{Sapient Ship}}s that follow and play with whale pods, 'kiss' by gently nudging into each other, and 'talk' to each other using their foghorns. WordOfGod is that the foghorn conversation between the two transcribed in the log consists of "I love you" and "I love you too." [[spoiler: [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-1522 Unfortunately]], [[TogetherInDeath it ends tragically]].]]

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'':
** A featured couple who ran the candy company Romanticorp.
** Fry and Lucy Liu-bot from "I Dated a Robot":
--->'''Lucy Liu-bot:''' You're cute!\\
'''Fry:''' No, you are!\\
'''Lucy Liu-bot:''' No, you!\\
'''Fry:''' No, you!\\
'''Professor Farnsworth:''' Oh dear! She's stuck in an infinite loop, and he's an idiot! Well, that's love for you.
* ''XMenEvolution'' Once Scott and Jean finally get together, Kurt and Kitty gleefully [[Funny/XMenEvolution mock them]] as being this by going full out daytime-TV.
* Geoff and Bridgette in ''[[TotalDramaIsland Total Drama Action]]'', becoming so annoying that they're [[spoiler: the first ones voted off.]]
** In the special:
--->'''Josh''': Cutie patootie?
--->'''Blaineley''': Schmoopie poo?
--->'''Both''': Ew!
** [[HeterosexualLifePartner Katie and Sadie]] have this as part of their extreme RomanticTwoGirlFriendship.
** In the GrandFinale of ''All Stars'', [[spoiler:''Heather'' and ''Alejandro'']] of all people. To the point that Chris changes the rules to get them to just ''stop''.
* Jérémie and Aelita from ''CodeLyoko'' can sometimes slip into this. They do have fights or misunderstandings a few times, but it is always resolved by the end of the episode.
* Subverted in ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries''. Joker and Harley do act this way sometimes, but [[MadLove this just makes their relationship even creepier.]]
* Subverted on ''WesternAnimation/JimmyTwoShoes''. Lucius tries acting this way whenever he's around Jez. However, [[GoldDigger she seems largely uninterested in returning his affection]].
* A both odd and hypocritical version of this appared on ''KickButtowski'' with Ronaldo witnessing a kissing "couple".
--> '''Ronaldo:''' (while talking on the phone) "Oh, just a second, honey..." ''(yells at kissing couple beside him)'' "YOU KNOW THERE IS SUCH A THING AS TOO MUCH AFFECTION!" ''(goes back to his phonecall)'' "See you soonsies!" The couple in question were of course... Kick and Ronaldo's girlfriend (whom he was talking with on the phone), Kendall.
* Clover and Blaine have this type of relationship in the final season of ''TotallySpies''.
* A variation of this occurs in ''WesternAnimation/BeastWars'', where this is only on one side of the relationship, that of KnightInShiningArmor IdiotHero Silverbolt, while the object of his affections, the DarkActionGirl FemmeFatale {{Kuudere}} Blackarachnia, despite returning his affections, is as annoyed by it the same as everyone else.
* Although not a ''complete'' example of this trope, there is one episode of ''MyLifeAsATeenageRobot'' in which Brad is about to be married to an alien who refers to him as "Bradley-Boo". {{Squick}}.
* Professor Utonium and Miss Keane become this in an episode of ''ThePowerpuffGirls''. [[spoiler:They break up when it turns out that he doesn't like her cat.]]
* Big Macintosh and Cheerilee act like this in the ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' episode "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E17HeartsAndHoovesDay Hearts and Hooves Day]]", thanks to a love potion provided by the Cutie Mark Crusaders. They spend nearly half the episode staring into each other's eyes and calling each other cutesy pet names like "Schmoopy Doo", and even the Crusaders - who'd hoped for sparks to fly - are visibly disgusted by their constant lovey-dovey talk. This is the point at which they check their work and realise what a horrible mistake they've made.
* Hugh and Jean in ''WesternAnimation/TazMania'', at times. Taz and Drew certainly seem to think so.
* In-universe example in ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice'' with Lagoon Boy and Miss Martian
-->'''Lagoon Boy''': Back to movie night, Angel-fish?
-->''(cuts to [[ComicBook/{{Superboy}} Conner]], Mal and [[ComicBook/BlueBeetle Jaime]]'s [[TastesLikeDiabetes Ugh-like]] face)''
* ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'': Mako and Asami are this way for a time, although they're not as bad as some of the other couples on this page. Korra is especially disgusted when the two of them Eskimo kiss or wink at each other and blow kisses from across the room.
-->'''Mako:''' These new uniforms look great!
-->'''Asami:''' ''You'' look great, champ!
** Episode nine is about when they start moving away from this type of relationship, as they [[spoiler: eventually break up and turn into good friends instead]].
* The ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' episode "Dream of Love" had Tree Trunks and Mr. Pig making the citizens of the Candy Kingdom sick with [[MakeOutKids their constant displays of affection]].
* On ''TheSimpsons'', Ned Flanders and Maude frequently verge on this territory. At a marriage counseling group-therapy retreat, Ned reveals the ''sordid'' truth that "Well, sometimes she highlights passages in ''my'' bible instead of her own!", to which Homer rolls his eyes and says, "It's a good thing you don't keep guns in the house!"
* Newton and Kimmy sometimes act like this on ''WesternAnimation/SymBionicTitan'', calling each other names like "muffin cup" and "honey bear."
* The villains Grim and Hildy Gloom from ''WesternAnimation/The7D'' often behave this way towards each other when they're alone, on one occasion when the dwarves snuck into their hideout to take back the Spring Chicken Grumpy got so sick of their lovey dovey talk that he told them to knock it off, giving away their hiding place in the process.

[[folder:Real Life]]
* There's always at least one {{showmance}} like this in a theatre production. To everyone involved, it's a distraction.
** What's really fun is when you're friends with a couple on {{Website/Facebook}}, and you're constantly seeing their wall-to-wall posts consisting of [[TastesLikeDiabetes "I luv u huny bunz! ^_^" "I luv u2 sweetie :-3"]]
* Subverted in the ''BehindTheMusic'' episode about TLC. When Left Eye was dating football player Andre Rison, her bandmates would get annoyed by their sappiness. T-Boz mentioned how they'd always call each other baby: "Hey Baby... Baby... Baby..." and it segued straight to Chilli, interviewed separately, saying the exact same thing. Two years into the relationship Left Eye [[WomanScorned burned his house down]][[note]]Admittedly, it was an accident. She had previously burned a teddy bear collection in the same bathtub after a previous fight, and assumed that her current victim (a pair of woman's sneakers that weren't her size) wouldn't be any worse. However, what she didn't realize was she had damaged the previous (marble) tub so badly, it had to be replaced with one made of fiberglass, which got out of control much faster.[[/note]] when she thought he was cheating.
