Marshall Quote #894
Future Ted: [v.o.] So, they headed out to Long Island, and when they walked in the door...
Marshall: We'll take it!
Lily: Baby, we can't take it. We're the ones selling it. We are selling it, right?
Marshall: Baby, your grandparents gave you this house outright. So, the way I see it, we have five options. One: sell it. Two: year-round haunted house. Three: giant fence around the perimeter, chimp sanctuary. There's already a tire swing in the backyard. Four: we destroy it with sledgehammers. I like four.
Lily: Or five: we move in, raise our children and make this our family home.
Marshall: Till they graduate. Then we destroy it with sledgehammers. As a family.
Quote from Marshall
Future Ted: [v.o.] That's a funny story. Marshall was fed up with his job at GNB and was thinking about leaving it all behind, so he and Lily agreed he should wait for a sign from the universe to tell him what to do. Then one day...
[flashback: Marshall is on the street and sees a strange looking ambulance drive by. He notices a stop sign and looks across the road and sees an old fire house that's for sale:]
Marshall: Of course. It's so clear. It's been right there all along. I have to call Lily. Excuse me. Excuse me, sir. I'm sorry, but, um, can I please borrow your... Ernie Hudson?
Ernie Hudson: Yes.
Marshall: Can I borrow your phone?
Ernie Hudson: Who you gonna call?
Robin: And did Marshall become a Ghostbuster?
Marshall: That firehouse is still for sale.
Lily: Even Ernie Hudson begged you not to go through with that.
Marshall: Ernie Hudson is a coward!
Quote from The Final Page (Part 2)
Marshall: Oh, I forgot the lullaby. Do you know Marvin's lullaby? We sing it to him every night.
[flashback to Marshall playing guitar and singing to Marvin with Lily adding percussion:]
Marshall: Night, night, little Marvin Stars twinkle for you [Lily plays chimes] The Dreamland train's a-chuggin' [Lily blows train whistle] All your dreams will come true And the horsie says, "Good night" [Lily plays wood scraper block] And the birdie says, "Good night" [Lily blows bird whistle] And the elephant says, "Good night" [Lily plays tuba] And the skeleton playing his own rib cage Says, "Good Night" [Lily plays xylophone] And the robot says, "Good night"
Lily: [uses a voice-changing megaphone] Good night.
Man: [o.s.] Enough with the damn music!
Marshall: [singing] And Mr. Nesbit says, "Good night" And the whole world says, "Good night" Take it, Mommy.
[Lily plays the violin]
Quote from Bagpipes
Barney: Hey, tiger. How you holding up? Do you need a hug? You want to talk about yesterday? Safe space.
Ted: Barney thinks Lily asking you to wash your dishes right away is a sign your marriage is crumbling.
Marshall: What? Why? Lily likes a clean sink, so I do the dishes right away, what's the big deal?
Barney: I'll tell you what the big deal is. You know how I was always the best at being single?
Barney: Well, now I am the best at relationships. Even better than you and Lily.
Marshall: Aw. Look at you. Had a girlfriend for five minutes, you think you can play with the big boys, adorable. Son, I've been in a relationship since you had a ponytail and were playing Dave Matthews on your mama's Casio. I'm a good boyfriend in my sleep. I can rock a killer foot rub with one hand and brew a kick-ass pot of chamomile in the other that would make you weep. Hell, I've forgotten more about microwaving fat-free popcorn and watching Sandra Bullock movies than you'll ever know, but thanks for your concern, rook.
