Quote from Barney in The Rebound Girl
Barney: All right, you got me. James is my baby guy. But these past three hours... magical, right? We can do this! Say we can do this.
Ted: We can't do this. Sorry, dude. We got to wait for the real thing, no matter how tough it gets.
Barney: It gets pretty tough.
Ted: I know it does, buddy.
