Robin Quote #868
Robin: There's gotta be someplace to bang here.
Barney: I'm starving. I knew we should've hit the buffet...
Robin: [slaps Barney] Don't say "buffet." That attracts old people. Same goes for "coupon," "60 Minutes," and "Mandy Patinkin."
Barney: What? Robin, you're being paranoid. Old people don't magically sense it when you say "Mandy Patinkin." [echoing] Patinkin.
Quote from Lily
Lily: Hey, Ted?
Lily: You wrote down all these things to say goodbye to, but so many of them are good things. Why not just say goodbye to the bad things? Say goodbye to all the times you felt lost. To all the times it was a "no" instead of a "yes." To all the scrapes and bruises. To all the heartache. Say goodbye to everything you really want to do for the last time. But don't go have one last Scotch with Barney. Have the first Scotch toasting Barney's new life. Because that's a good thing... And the good things will always be here waiting for you. What?
Ted: Turn the page.
Lily: "Get one last life lecture from Lily." Well, you're dreaming if you think that's the last one of those.
Quote from Marshall
[flashback to April 26 at 12:44 pm:]
Ted: Oh. Hey.
Marshall: Hey, bud. I was about to take Lily's rehearsal dinner dress to the dry cleaner.
Ted: Oh, that's too bad. Because, uh, I was just watching The Princess Bride, when something occurred to me.
Marshall: How, at the end, Andre the Giant hooks them up with those horses and then Inigo Montoya is like, "Fezzik, you did something right." And it's like, bro, Andre's been doing stuff right the whole movie. Knocking out serpents, busting down castle doors. Basically carrying your revenge-and-sangria-soaked ass. So instead of being a patronizing jerk, how about a simple: "Hey, thanks for the horses, bro"? That's totally what you were thinking, right?
Ted: No, l... No, I came over here... God, that's a really good point.
Quote from Glitter
Robin: Okay, fine, I'll watch it with you.
Robin: But if either of you makes even one peep about the show being dirty, I'm turning it off. I'm serious.
[on Space Teens:]
Robin Sparkles: Hey Jessica, how's your beaver?
[in the apartment, Ted and Barney spit take]
Jessica Glitter: Great. How's your beaver?
Robin Sparkles: Busy as ever!
[Ted and Barney stifle laughter]
Robin: Our characters had pet beavers.
Ted: [giggles] Sure.
Robin: The beaver is the official animal of Canada. It's our national mascot.
Barney: It's a noble creature.
Quote from Big Days
Robin: Well, I guess you just got to move on. I mean, it's not like you have a shot with Ready McGee over there, right? Ted?
Future Ted: [v.o.] Then I remembered. Cindy had a roommate. A roommate I only caught a glimpse of... But a roommate who, by every indication, was something very special. Was it possible? Could this be the girl attached to that ankle?
Ted: I got to see her ankles.
Robin: You're one of those? God, I swear, one in five guys...
