Ted Quote #516

Quote from Ted in The Naked Man

Future Ted: [v.o.] But one of the craziest things I ever walked in on happened when I was roommates
with your Aunt Robin.
Mitch: [completely naked on the couch] Hey.
Ted: Hey. Who are you?!
Mitch: Mitch.
Ted: What you doing, Mitch?
Mitch: You must be the roommate. I'm on a date with Robin. She had to step outside to take a call. I guess her cell phone doesn't work in here.
Ted: Oh. Oh. Oh. Robin... didn't use the super secret signal. We put this old takeout menu on the doorknob. Place went out of business. Mr. Wang's... Guess I don't have to explain why that's funny. I'm going to go. Um, when you leave, take the seat cushion with you. That's trash now.


 ‘The Naked Man’ Quotes

Quote from Ted

Mitch: This is my move. It's called, "The Naked Man."
Ted: "The Naked Man"?
Mitch: Goes like this: You're on a first date, you've had a few drinks, you make an excuse to go up to the girl's apartment.
Robin: So, the bathroom's right there. [cellphone rings] You know what, I'm going to grab this.
Mitch: [v.o.] Then, once she leaves the room, you strip down naked and wait. When she comes back, she laughs. She's so charmed by your confidence and bravado, she sleeps with you. Boom!
Ted: There is no way that works!
Mitch: Two out of three times.
Ted: Two out of three times?
Mitch: Two out of three times.

Quote from Barney

Barney: The Naked Man works! This is going to revolutionize the one-night stand! This is like the forward pass in football. The slam dunk in basketball. The haircutting technique where they hold it between their fingers and cut right above it. It's a total game changer!
Lily: Barney, this guy slept with Robin, who you claim to be in love with. How can you be excited about this?
Barney: Lily, the Naked Man is bigger than me and Robin. All these years, I have been busting my hump, with my secret identities and my tricks and my gadgets. I mean, I'm like Batman. But this Mitch fellow, he's Superman. He just rips off his clothes and he's good to go.
Lily: What kind of gadgets are we talking about?

Quote from Ted

Mitch: You just have to pick your spot. The Naked Man is best used as a last resort, kind of a Hail Mary on a first date when you know there's not going to be a second one.
Ted: How do you know there's not going to be a second date?
Mitch: Ted, look at me.
Ted: I'd rather not, Mitch.
Mitch: Robin is way out of my league. I'm not smart, funny or handsome. And as you can plainly see, there's nothing impressive going on anywhere around here. My only shot with a girl like Robin is the element of surprise. And, let's be honest, a little pity. It's shock and "aw."
Ted: This doesn't really work.
Mitch: Two out of three times. Guaranteed.
