    17 Awkward Things Men Said In TV Shows That Might Make You Cringe A Whole Lot

    "It's like blue balls, in your heart."

    We asked the BuzzFeed Community to tell us the cringiest quotes in TV history, and it turns out a lot of 'em were said by men. Here are the ridiculous results:

    1. In How I Met Your Mother, when Barney made us all squirm when he insulted Marshall's ducky tie with internet slang.


    2. And when Ted said the cheesiest, most dramatic thing to Robin before she married Barney.



    3. In Pretty Little Liars, when Ezra thought he was confident in helping Aria with the dead body in her trunk but actually came off as awkward.

    ABC Family


    4. In Glee, when Mr. Schue tried to bring his students together after being destroyed by Sue but shed some horrible, horrible wisdom instead.


    5. In Riverdale, when Jughead gave his supremely uncomfortable "I'm a weirdo" speech to Betty.

    6. And when Archie was in jail and tried to inspire his fellow inmate in the most Archie way.
