Quote from Barney in Of Course
Future Ted: [v.o.] Kids, on a warm March evening in 2010, a New York City Police boat pulled a 34-year-old white male out of the Hudson River, your Uncle Barney.
Police Officer: All right, kid, let's hear the story, from the beginning.
Barney: Well, it all started a week ago.
[flashback to Barney at MacLaren's:]
Barney: I was making time at the local watering hole. Enter, a dame.
Anita: Nothing sexier than a man in a fine cravat.
Barney: Except for a woman who appreciates a fine cravat.
Anita: How about we just call it a tie? [both laugh]
Barney: [laughing] You see, a cravat is a kind of tie.
Police Officer: I get it.
