Future Ted Quote #41

Quote from Future Ted in Nothing Good Happens After 2 AM

Robin: Okay. Bye. [hangs up] I thought it was mine, so I answered it.
Ted: Was it...?
Robin: It was your girlfriend. You might want to call her back. [tosses Ted his phone; goes to the bedroom]
Future Ted: [v.o.] I called Victoria from the cab and we broke up. Yes... And there you have it, kids. The stupidest thing I've ever done. In one night, I managed to hurt two people I cared about. And none of it would've happened if I just listened to my mom. So I guess if there's a lesson to be learned here, it's this: when it's 2:00 a.m., just go to sleep.


 ‘Nothing Good Happens After 2 AM’ Quotes

Quote from Barney

Lily: Nothing good ever happens after 2:00 a.m.
Barney: You know, I have found, in my travels, that all the best things in life happen after 2:00 a.m. When I look back at the best stories of my life: the Liberty Bell incident, the little scrape I got in at the Russian Embassy, the almost four-way.
Marshall: You never had a four-way.
Barney: I said "almost." All those things happened after 2:00 a.m. because after 2:00 a.m. is when things get - audience, say it with me - legendary.

Quote from Ted

[Ted imagining Victoria in Robin's bathroom]
Ted: You're right. I owe you a real breakup call. I'll call you tomorrow.
Victoria: Good. So you're gonna go home?
Ted: Why should I have to go home? You know, there's every chance Robin's the woman I'm going to marry.
Victoria: Ted.
Ted: It could happen. And so really, what's it gonna matter in 50 years if I jump the gun by one night? Look, I-I know this is a moral gray area, but... It's Robin. And I'm exhausted. I am. I'm exhausted from pretending I'm not in love with her. I think that makes this okay.
Victoria: Oh, please. You just want to get laid.
Ted: Yes, I do. You got me. That is exactly what I want right now. And so what? I want this. She wants this. It's happening, and if you have a problem with it, don't be in Germany. It's been nice pretending to talk to you. Thanks for not calling me and good night.
Victoria: That's not your phone.
Ted: This isn't my phone.

Girl: Don't you get lonely?
Robin: No, I've got five dogs.
Girl: My grandma has five cats and she gets lonely.
Robin: Well, yeah, that's cats. I'm not some pathetic cat lady. Not that your grandmother is a...
