Quote from Marshall in The Poker Game
Ted: And I thought for sure you'd get it when I sent that note for the wrapping station.
Ted: [writing] "Dear Marshall and Lily, this is a thank-you note to thank you for the gift-wrapping station. Because even though the wedding never happened, there's one thing that didn't leave me at the altar and that's my manners."
Marshall: I can't believe this. Eriksens send thank-you notes. It's the one thing that we always do. We even have a family saying about it: "Lick it before you stick it." "It" being the stamp on the thank-you note before you stick it in the mailbox. I will make this right.
