come out in + moron in "It all comes out in moron"? It's from Gilmore girls, and teenager Rory is in love. Rory: "I don't want to do or say anything else that's gonna be remotely moronic." mom: "I'm afraid once your heart in involved, it all comes out *in moron.*" - I understand what she's trying to say here, but I'm not exactly sure about how the sentence has been structured. Is it "come out" + in + moron or "come out in" + moron ? I looked up online and "come out in" as a whole meant "(of a person's skin) break out in (pimples or a similar condition)" so I wasn't sure if this is right. Also, "come out in + noun" is a natural combination of words? So like, would you say "it all came out in fool/genius etc."? (which by the way sounds weird to me. "come out + adjective(cf. weird)" sounds okay.)

This is a rarer use of "come out in" and "come out as." "When I use Google Translate and set it to Korean, things that I type in English come out in Korean." "I haven't been speaking much French recently, but I've been speaking a lot of Chinese. When I met a French person yesterday, I intended to speak to him in French, but my words came out in Chinese instead." Here, the speaker is humorously imagining that "Moron" is the name of the language that morons speak. The speaker is imagining that "Moron" is a language like French, Spanish, and Korean. When you are in love, you attempt to say intelligent things, but your brain automatically translates everything you say into the language of "Moron."
