    • Marshall: Robin don't smoke that cigarette!
      Robin: Marshall?
      Marshall: We're all watching, and we're very impressionable, and I swear to God, if you smoke, we're all gonna smoke!
      Robin: You guys are watching?
      Lily: (Raspy-voiced) We sure are, honey. And you look fabulous!

    • Lily: That Don guy, what a tool. Robin: No, he actually apologized after. Lily: No, when he stood up those briefs were pretty revealing. You should date that guy. Robin: Yeah, not in this lifetime. Old Ted: They were dating within three months.

    • Ted: Dude, if you don't stop tapping your foot, it's coming off! Marshall: Oh, Ted, I'm so sorry. Maybe I should move it closer to your ass!

    • Marshall: Hey! Lily: You smoked. Marshall: Yes, I smoked! And it was my third of the day! You know what that means? I'm a smoker now! It's all over! I even bought a pack on the way home, and a lighter, and a Vikings lamp which has nothing to do with anything but I saw it in the window and I liked it. Lily: Damn it, Marshall! We already have four Vikings lamps, and smoking kills!

    • Robin: If I can't get my best friends to watch my show, who's gonna watch? Marshall: Lots of people. You got bed ridden insomniacs, bums waiting outside of department stores, people waiting in ERs where you can't change the channel because the TV's in a little cage. Lily: Oh! Do you have any stalkers? Robin: Yeah. But even Leonard won't watch my show.

    Trivia (2)

    • The stock footage of Ted's kids saying "What?" is from the Pilot episode, shot in a different room and with different costumes than all other stock footage of Ted's kids.

    • The gang uses a Tim Horton's coffee can as an ashtray about halfway through the episode, and the Tim Horton's name is clearly shown in the trademark gold oval on the front of the can. Near the end of the episode, the gang is back on the roof, and the "Tim Horton's" has been removed from the gold oval.
