Lily Quote #350

Quote from Lily in The Leap

Lily: Why do you even want it?
Ted: Because I have to be an architect. That's... That's the plan.
Lily: Screw the plan. I planned on being a famous artist. Marshall planned on being an environmental lawyer. Robin planned on being a TV reporter.
Robin: Uh, I am a TV reporter. I'm on every morning at 4:00 a.m.
Lily: Is that still on? Huh. Good for you.
Robin: Somebody watch it, please.
Lily: Barney planned on being a violinist.
Barney: Lily!
Lily: Don't tell me things. Look, you can't design your life like a building. It doesn't work that way. You just have to live it, and it will design itself.
Ted: So, what, I should just do nothing?
Lily: No, listen to what the world is telling you to do and take the leap.

Quote from Barney

Barney: Tracey, Tracey, tell Lily what you just told me.
Tracey: That I just moved to New York?
Barney: No, no, but tell her how you got here.
Tracey: I just got off the bus from Iowa.
Barney: Just got off the bus from Iowa! How lucky is it that an aspiring dancer just off the bus from Iowa runs into the producer of the Rockettes?

Lily: Oh, honey, you are. You really are.
Barney: Hey, Tracey, why don't you make me one of those rum and beers that your dad loves so much?
Tracey: Sure thing!

Quote from Barney

Barney: Hey, Ted, whatcha doing?
Ted: Designing a building shaped like a hat.
Barney: Now a good time to chat?
Ted: No.
Barney: So, what do you think of Robin?
Ted: Barney, I really need to get to work, so...
Barney: Great. Say you and I went suit-shopping, and you happened upon a beautiful suit, a beautiful Canadian suit. Double-breasted. Hmm. You try it on, but it's not exactly the right fit for you. So, you put it back. Then I try it on. I don't really want to take the same suit that you had your eye on, but at the same time, I really like that suit.
Ted: Buy the suit, Barney. You clearly care about it. Tell the suit how you feel.
Barney: Okay. But Ted, remember that that was your answer because... The suit is Robin. [imitates explosion] I know! Right?
Ted: I'm with you, buddy.
Barney: You are now. Because I explained it to you. [hugs Ted]
