Robin Quote #332
Bud: Goodbye, Robin.
Robin: No. You know what? I'm glad you found oot. Because I'm proud to be Canadian. We may not have a fancy NFL team or Prince, but we invented Trivial Pursuit. You're welcome, Earth! Plus in Canada, you can go to an all-nude strip club and order alcohol. That's right. From Moose Jaw to the Bay of Fundy, you can suck down a 20-ounce pilsner while watching some coal miner's daughter strip down to her pelt. Jealous?! In Canada people don't care where you're from, as long as you're friendly and maybe loan them a smoke or hand over a donut. I'm proud to be from the Great White North... and I wish I was there right now. [starts to leave] And we're not afraid of the dark. I mean, we don't love it, but who does?
Quote from Barney
Lily: For all the years Heather's been visiting New York, Ted's never let Barney meet her.
Ted: And I never will. Every year when the Mosby family Christmas card shows up...
[flashback to Ted and Barney standing next to a Christmas tree in the apartment in 2005:]
Barney: [singing] Pulling down her pants Yanking off my own Underneath the mistletoe I'll make your sister moan Oh! Heather's hot, Heather's hot We'll go all the way...
[flashback to Christmas 2006:]
Barney: [singing] I wish I could see her naked I wish I could see her naked I wish I could see her naked And down on all fours.
[flashback to Christmas 2007:]
Barney: [singing] Ted has a little sister Gets hotter every day And if I ever meet her With her boobies I will play! Everybody! Sister, sister, sister! [off their looks] What? I can celebrate Hanukkah, too.
Quote from Marshall
Robin: Hey, guys.
Ted: It's freezing out there. Where's your coat?
Robin: Ted, I'm Canadian. I don't need a coat. This kind of weather is nothing for me.
Marshall: Yeah, this is like a spring day back in Minnesota, if it weren't for all the taxis and the skyscrapers and non-white people.
Ted: There aren't any black people in Minnesota?
Marshall: Not if Prince is on tour.
Quote from Marshall
Bud: If you want to impersonate a Canadian, just turn of the lights and get all scared!
Robin: What was that?
Marshall: Well, with Canada right across the border, we Minnesotans sometimes like to make jokes at your guys' expense and they're all sort of along the same theme.
Robin: That we're afraid of the dark?
Marshall: [laughs] Yeah. For example: Hey, everyone, how many Canadians does it take to change a lightbulb? "What? Oh, no, the lightbulb's out?! I'm scared!"
Robin: That is insane. Why do you think the Canadians are afraid of the dark?
Marshall: Well, where does any prejudice come from, Robin? A stereotype starts, and all of a sudden it spreads like wildfire. Like Asians can't drive, Scotsmen are cheap, Brazilians always put on way too much postage.
