    • Robin: Why do you have a gingerbread house?
      Ted: We're seeing a Christmas movie, so it's a Christmas-themed movie snack.
      Robin: Hope Santa brings you a girlfriend this year, Teddy.

    • Ted: Are you serious? All you ever talk about is having kids and you have one little freakout, and you're gonna get a dog instead?! No, you're going to go home, get naked, and lie together as man and wife until Lily is with child! (they stare at him) I'm serious. Go! (Marshall and Lily run away) Barney: Marshall and Lily got in trouble! Ted: And you. Barney, you look really stupid in that suit. You're gonna take it back and give the money to charity, and not that stripper you keep emailing us about even though we beg you to take us off that list. Barney: I glow in the dark, Ted! I finally glow in the dark! Ted: Attention criminals of New York! This man is wearing a diamond encrusted suit! You can retire on the pants alone! (Barney runs away) Robin: So if I get a large popcorn, want to go splitskies? Ted: And you. You did not move to the greatest city in the world to become a coin-flipping bimbo. So I'm gonna flip a coin. Heads, you take the job at World Wide News. Tails, you take the job at World Wide News. (Flips a coin) Looks like someone's got a new gig! Robin: Fine, I'll call tomorrow. Okay, I'll call right now. Jeez. (Ted's phone rings) Punchy: I can't do this, Ted! Ted: Yes you can, you love her! Punchy: You're right, I do. Thanks Ted!
