Quote from Marshall

Marshall: But if you roll an even number while adjacent to the Peppermint Forest, then you "Marshall out," and all your chips go into the pot, and remember, if you ever ask the question "What?", then... [hits buzzer] you got to drink. Got it?
All: No.
Marshall: Okay, okay. No, no, we'll just start, you guys'll pick it up.

Quote from Marshall

Marshall: Newbie goes first. Roll.
Victoria: Okay.
Marshall: Three! You got "Autobiography". Now, that's where you have to answer a personal question about your dating life truthfully in order to move on.
Ted: Marshall, come on.
Marshall: Hey, she's the one who rolled a three. Victoria, "Have you ever cheated while in a relationship?" Wow, good question.
Ted: You don't have to answer that.
Victoria: It's okay. Um, well, I was in a really crappy relationship in college, and I wound up kissing this guy at a party one night, and I felt terrible about it, so, I came clean, and we broke up.
Marshall: Victoria, that was an honest and mature answer. You may advance to The Gumdrop Mountains.

Quote from Barney

Lily: Oh, Barney, by the way, I went to a party in that new building on 82nd, and the host said she knew you. What is her name? Sharon? Shannon?
Barney: Shannon?! Shannon, Shannon... No, don't remember any Shannon.
Lily: Really? Well, 'cause she gave me a videotape to give...
Barney: [loudly] Where's the tape?
Lily: Fine. I'll go get it.
Barney: Cool, okay. You know, whenever.

Quote from Lily

Lily: Barney, what was on that tape?
Barney: Too bad you'll never find out.
Lily: Oh, damn it! If only I'd given you a fake tape and hidden the real tape in my purse. Oh, wait. That's exactly what I did.
Barney: What?!
Marshall: Drink!
Lily: Yeah, you were acting so weird about it, I gave you Ted's graduation tape instead. So, should we pop it in?

Quote from Marshall

Marshall: Well, we all have embarrassing stories. Sometimes it's good to-to talk about it.
Barney: Oh, really? Then why don't you tell us your most humiliating moment, Marshall? Show me how good it is.
Marshall: All right. I was stopping by Lily's kindergarten class to say hi, but they were all at recess. I really had to pee, so I went into the class's restroom. It was a-a smaller target than I'm used to, so I figured I should sit down. What I didn't realize was, it was a shared bathroom. I wish I had pulled up my pants.
Lily: The kids still call him Funny Butt.

Quote from Barney

Barney: Okay. I'll tell you my story. Believe it or not, I was not always as awesome as I am today. It was 1998. I was just out of college, and I was working at a coffeehouse with my girlfriend. My girlfriend, Shannon.

Quote from Barney

[flashback:]
Shannon: I love your singing, Barney.
Barney: And I love you, Shannon.
Shannon: Joining the Peace Corps with you is gonna be legendary.
Barney: I know. Only five short weeks till we're down in Nicaragua.

Quote from Barney

[flashback:]
Business man: Hey, nonfat latte to go.
Barney: Mellow order, bro, mellow order.
Business man: Dude, that your g-friend? All right, high five!
Barney: Sorry, I only give high twos.
Business man: Whatevs. As long as you're nailing that.
Barney: Listen to you. That? You know, women aren't objects. They're human beings. And FYI, Shannon and I have decided to wait till we're married. You can read about it in my 'zine.
Business man: Hey, haircut, right here. Open up your knowledge basket, 'cause here it comes. Forget all that touchy-feely crap. You get money, you get laid. End of discussion.
Barney: I feel sorry for you, man.
Business man: Peace out, hombre.
Barney: [chuckles] Suits.
Barney: [v.o.] Five weeks later, we were all set to leave for the Peace Corps. Only problem was... she never showed up.

Quote from Future Ted

Victoria: Okay, how about this? I will tell you my most humiliating story.
Marshall: Yeah, Victoria, way to step up!
Victoria: Okay, it involves a game of truth or dare, a squeeze-bottle of marshmallow ice cream topping, and the hot tub at my grandparents' retirement community.
Future Ted: [v.o.] Kids, I tell you a lot of inappropriate stories, but there's no way in hell I'm telling you this one. Don't worry, though, it wasn't that great.
Marshall: That is the greatest story ever!

Quote from Ted

Ted: You're right. Victoria, I'm sorry I haven't told you this yet, but a while back, I was kind of into Robin. In fact, on our first date, I might have said, "I love you." Understandably, she freaked out and I left. But unfortunately, the night did not end there.
[flashback:]
Ted: [v.o.] We all ended up at the bar with our cab driver Ranjit.
Ranjit: To one hell of a night!
Ted: [v.o.] And I drank... a lot.
Ted: So you guys think I should have kissed her? Well, I'll tell you what, I'm gonna go kiss her right... now.
Barney: Yes! Do it!
Ranjit: To the cab.
