Ted Quote #462

Ted: What? You're crazy! I know plenty.
Marshall: What color are her eyes?
Ted: The color of the ocean after a storm.
Marshall: Which is?
Quote from Barney
Lily: I mean, for the last time, you can't... You can't be in love with Robin and still be sleeping with every bimbo on the planet. You have to choose right now.
Barney: I choose bimbos.
Barney: Bimbos make me happy. Bimbos make me feel alive. Bimbos make me want to pretend to be a better man. This whole thing with Robin was just a fling, but at the end of the day, my heart belongs to bimbos.
Lily: This is just a defense mechanism, because you're afraid of getting hurt. You're just confused.
Barney: Oh, I'm not confused. You know who is confused? Bimbos. They're easily confused. It's one of the thousand little things I love about them. I love their vacant, trusting stares, their sluggish, unencumbered minds, their unresolved daddy issues. I love them and they love me. Bimbos have always been there for me, through thick and thin. Mostly thin. B- man don't do thick crust. What up?
Lily: See you, Barney.
[After Lily leaves the apartment, Barney turns on the TV and sees Robin on the news. Barney smiles and then turns it off.]
Quote from Barney
Lily: Barney, I don't get it. You've called a million girls a million times.
Barney: Yeah, but those were just booty calls.
Barney: On a booty call, you rarely have to even talk.
[flashback to Barney at MacLaren's:]
Barney: [v.o.] Around 9:00 p.m., you say...
Barney: [on the phone] Hey, baby, it's Barney. You busy tonight? Sweet. See you in half an hour? Can't wait.
Barney: [v.o.] But the later it gets, the fewer words you need.
Barney: [on the phone] Barney. Busy? Sweet.
Barney: [v.o.] And by 3:00 in the morning...
[Barney texts a woman "?". She responds "!"]
Lily: A question mark? You got laid off a question mark?
Quote from Intervention
[flashback to Marshall arriving at the apartment as Ted stacks books on a shelf:]
Marshall: Hey. What's that?
Ted: A 1986 World Book encyclopaedia. [en-sahy-kluh-pay-dee-uh] It's exactly the one I grew up with.
Ted: Oh, you think it should be pronounced encyclo-pee-dia. It's a common mistake. But if you look at that squished together "ae" symbol in this here encyclopaedia, you'll learn that it's a ligature derived from the Anglo-Saxon rune...
[The bookshelves collapse, ripping off a portion of plasterboard and exposing the building's red brick walls]
Marshall: You know, you're gonna have to paedia for that.
Quote from We're Not From Here
Ted: New Jersey is not "pretty much New York". You are not "pretty much New Yorkers".
Colleen: And how would you know?
Ted: Because I live here. That's right. I live here. Yes, we're full of crap. Yes, we pretended to be from out of town so we could sleep with you and leave in the morning. But you know what's even worse than that?! Saying you're a New Yorker when you're not. Because, this is the greatest city in the world and you have to earn the right to call yourself a New Yorker. So why don't you girls crawl into the open sewer pipe you call the Holland Tunnel and flush yourselves back to "pretty much New York"? Because I will do a lot to get laid, but I am not going to New Jersey!
