It's arguable that Adam Sandler's character in Punch-Drunk Love suffers from social anxiety disorder, or something similar. Definitely nervous around people and easily flustered, sweaty. Rarely takes initiative (never dated). Goes to great lengths to avoid criticism, always wanting his conversations to be confidential etc. Pacing on the phone.

But its eccentric romantic comedy, not a drama so don't expect a straight depiction.

I'm a demon,
If demons are mediocre.
I'm a bagel.
And that bagel is stale,
So pass the cottage cheese.
I'm a rock climber.
If rocks are gentle slopes.
Chicken nuggets reside inside
of me.
