    • Marshall: (calling on the phone) Yeah! So, now, she's gone and the wedding's off. // What do you call someone who just takes off and leaves like that? What do you call that?! (shocked on the reply) Th-that's a little strong. I can't believe you used a word like that! Geez, Grandma!

    • Barney: I can get us that money. Ted: How? Barney: Have you noticed that all day Chinese men keep coming up to me? Ted: Yes. Have you noticed I haven't asked about it because I'm too afraid of the answer?

    • Ted: Wait, wait, wait! I don't understand! People get married in Atlantic City all the time. Registrar: Yes, they do but they don't elope. They choose Atlantic City for its white sand beaches, world-class amenities and exotic Riviera feel. Lily: Have you been outside?! Ted: There is half an orca whale rotting not 20 feet from the cabana!

    • Registrar: You are aware that this is not Las Vegas. Robin: Tell me about it. In Vegas casinos pump in oxygen. Here, most guests bring their own.

    • Barney: Ah, AC. Always in decline, never hitting bottom. It's good to be back, old friend.

    Trivia (2)
