How I Met Your Mother: Trilogy Time

720. Trilogy Time

Aired April 9, 2012

Ted, Marshall and Barney continue their tradition of getting together every three years to watch the Star Wars trilogy and imagine what their lives will be like in another three years. Meanwhile, Barney and Quinn move in together.

Quote from Barney

[flashback to 2006:]
Barney: A baby in a trucker hat. That's awesome. Anyway, Ted's right. 2009's gonna rule.
[fantasy scene in 2009:]
Barney: By the way, guys, this is Maya. You'll be seeing a lot more of Maya. [shows her out] And they never saw her again. Whassup!
Ted: Okay, seriously, at least tell me you're gonna change the what will by then be nine-year-old beer commercial reference.


Quote from Ted

Marshall: Hey, buddy, I get that you're bummed. But I got a good feeling about 2015. I think that's gonna be your year.
Future Ted: [v.o.] Kids, that was the one time I ever lost faith in the idea that my life would be better in three years. And what's funny is, three years from that moment, my life was amazing.
[fantasy scene in 2015:]
Marshall: All right! It's trilogy time.
Barney: Can I just lodge one complaint? This is a guy's tradition. It's kind of a lame move on Ted's part to bring a chick.
Marshall: Come on, dude, cut him some slack.
Barney: I know. He loves her. She is pretty damn cute.
Ted: [holding a baby] Thank God she takes after her mother.
Barney: All right, let's watch this thing!
Marshall: TV, play Star Wars trilogy. Play Star Wars tril... You know what? Screw it.
Ted: [to the baby] Okay, you are about to see something awesome.
Barney: And just know this: Han shot first.
Marshall: I wonder if things'll be a lot different when we watch the trilogy again in 2018.
Ted: I hope not.

Quote from Barney

Barney: Lily, here's the thing. It's my apartment, and I need to assert my dominance as a man.
Robin: Don't ever say that to any girl ever.
Barney: Too late.
[flashback to Barney and Quinn in his apartment:]
Quinn: What did you just say to me?
Robin: She gave up her apartment for you!
Lily: You said that to her?!
Barney: Okay, you know what? I don't have to sit here and take this from you ladies. I'm going to Ted's. The man cave, where guys can be guys.
[later, at Ted's:]
Ted: Assert your dominance?
Marshall: It's like you have no respect for women.
Ted: What is wrong with you?
Marshall: You have a mother!
Barney: You guys, too? I'm going to the Y for a shvitz.

Quote from Barney

[flashback to 2003:]
Marshall: What about you, Barney? Any predictions for 2006?
Barney: Oh, yeah. Picture it.
[fantasy scene in 2006:]
Barney: By the way, guys, this is Jody. You'll be seeing a lot more of Jody. [shows her out] And they never saw her again. Whassup!
Marshall: How is that any different from your life right now?
Barney: It's not. I'm KFC, baby. You don't mess with the Colonel's recipe. I want things to stay exactly the same, but with a different hottie. 'Cause Barney don't slurp no sloppy seconds especially his own.
