How I Met Your Mother: Blitzgiving


Season 6, Episode 10 -  Aired November 22, 2010

When Ted leaves the bar early to prepare Thanksgiving dinner, he inherits the curse of "The Blitz" from Steve, an old friend from college who made a habit of leaving just before amazing things happen.

Quote from Ted

Lily: I don't get it. Why'd she just kick us out like that?
Future Ted: [v.o.] And then the cab driver said the last thing any of us wanted to hear.
Cab Driver: Where to?
Ted: I guess we're going home.
Cab Driver: Yeah. I don't know where that is.


Quote from Ted

Ted: Lily, where'd you get that?
Lily: Oh. When Zoey booted us, it made me want to steal something of hers again. Apartment full of designer labels, and what do I grab? "Happy Turkey Day, Hannah. Love, Zoey." I wonder who Hannah is.
[flashback to Zoey in the apartment the night before:]
Zoey: Hey, you guys should come to my house for Thanksgiving. My husband always spends it with his daughter, so I'm going to be alone, anyway.
[flashback to earlier:]
Zoey: Well, you're not exactly who I thought I'd be spending Thanksgiving with, either.
Ted: And if Zoey is a cartoon character, she's Cinderella's evil stepmother!
Zoey: Get out! All of you, out!
Ted: We have to go back to Zoey's.
Cab Driver: You gotta throw me some addresses, buddy.

Quote from Ted

Zoey: Oh, God. What are you doing here?
Ted: Barney let us in.
Zoey: Barney was here? I was walking around half-naked.
Barney: Aw, man! Wait. Which half?
Ted: Look, I'm sorry your stepdaughter didn't want to spend Thanksgiving with you.
Zoey: How do you know that?
Ted: I just do. It must be tough.
Zoey: It was the first Thanksgiving Hannah agreed to spend with me, and then at the last minute, she changed her mind. She hates my guts.
Ted: I get that.
Ted: Uh, you should hang on to this. You can give it to her next year.
Zoey: Yeah. Right. Next year.
Ted: Hey, you never know. People don't stay enemies forever.
Future Ted: [v.o.] And that's the story of how Zoey and I became friends.

Quote from Future Ted

Zoey: Ted, that is the best-looking turturkeykey I have ever seen.
All: Yeah.
Ted: Thank you. Let's just hope it tastes as good as it looks.
Future Ted: [v.o.] It didn't. It tasted wrong.

Quote from Marshall

[flashback to Zoey, The Blitz, and the gang at MacLaren's sending a picture of Marshall's junk to a stranger:]
Zoey: Everybody shout out random numbers.
The Blitz: Um. 4, 8... 15, 16, 23, 42!
