Quote from Ted in Murtaugh
Robin: I must say, there's something admirable about the way Barney wants to stay young at heart. I mean, who wants to get old?
Ted: This guy. Robin, life is a meal and old age is the dessert. I spend so much of my time worrying about the future. Where's my career going? Who am I gonna marry? But when you're old, you don't worry, 'cause all that stuff's already happened. Plus, you get to wear comfy shoes and a chair takes you up and down the stairs, it's perfect.
Robin: That's not perfect. That's pathetic. You can't just jump to the end. The journey is the best part.
Ted: Oh, Robin, I used to feel that way, too, but you'll understand when you're a little bit older.
