    • Lily: You're gonna go beg for your old job back? You hated it there!
      Marshall: I know, but the job market's really bad right now. (to class) Kids, who wants Uncle Marshall to get his job back?
      Kids: Yay!!!
      Lily: They'll cheer for anything if you say it like that! (to class, cheerfully) Kids, a super tanker dumped five million gallons of oil off the coast of Alaska this morning!
      Kids: Yay!!!

    • Ted: I realized what changed between the moment I broke up with you and the moment I wanted you back.
      Stella: Your cab got T-boned by a jackass on a cell phone?
      Ted: I changed. I realized I want to be the man that you need. That's why I spent ten minutes at the claw machine trying to get the fake diamond ring but all I could get is the orange kangaroo.
      Stella: Diamond ring?
      Ted: Will you marry me?

    • Marshall: Did you actually say 'I want to break up?'
      Ted: No. But who says I want to break up? It's an awful thing to say.

    • Stella: So my sister broke up with her boyfriend.
      Ted: Well, now I can finally say it: I hated that guy! Everything out of his mouth was, 'I'm a vegan! Fish feel pain! I'm never constipated!' Guy's an idiot.
      Stella: Actually, they're getting married. I just wanted your honest opinion.
      Ted: He's a really nice guy. There's a wisdom to his thinking.

    • Barney: Ted, can we be friends again? Ted: Barney, come on. We're more then friends. We're brothers. (Both crying) Barney: You're my brother, Ted. Ted: You're my brother, Barney. Barney: Did you hear that, Marshall? We're brothers now! Ted: Marshall is my brother too. Marshall: We're all brothers. Barney: Yeah, but I'm your best brother, right?

    Trivia (3)

    • Ted and Barney end up in Saint Anthony's Hospital. Marshall talks about miracles while there. Saint Anthony is the saint of miracles

    • When Ted and Stella are arguing at the hospital, there are couple of Jell-o cups on the tray behind Ted. As the scene progresses and there are camera changes, one of the Jell-o cups disappears.

    • When Ted is getting into the cab we can clearly see that the identification number on the cab is 6Z28. But seconds later it changes to 9Z72.
