In one of the episodes of Friends, Ross who plays the professor, calls a student and has a talk with him saying, he is afraid that he have to fail him because of low mark. The student says, he is in love with Ross. Ross shockingly (I think) replies that brings me in a loop a little.
I have two questions to ask: The first, what did he mean by saying, "that brings me in a loop a little"?
The second, in words how do we say the student’s action was for e.g.: "The student playfully or ridiculously responses."
What is the exact word to define the student reply or action?
