Ernie in Love is an episode in the Hey Arnold! TV Series.
Ernie meets a tall and lovely woman named Lola, and falls madly in love with her. He doesn't want to talk to her because he's afraid she'll reject him for being short, so he "admires her from afar". He says her name in his sleep, made a statue of her, and wrote a million love poems. Arnold convinces Ernie to get the courage to talk to Lola. He does and he goes on a date with her, but she rejects his invitation to go on another date with him because he's short. Heartbroken and disappointed, he stands up to her and says he's a big man in the heart and that should count. The next day, she apologizes and Ernie accepts her again and they go out again.
