    • Robin: Well, I have to have a job.
      Vacation Robin: `I have to have a jobĀ“ It's so American.
      Robin: I'm Canadian. You know that.

    • Barney: (to Ted) You and I, we have to bend over backwards to get women to... bend over backwards.

    • Ted: You guys live in New Jersey, not New York?
      Colleen: Yeah, but don't worry. It's pretty much New York.
      Ted: Oh, no. Oh, no-
      Barney: Oh, no.
      Ted: New Jersey is not pretty much New York, and you are not pretty much New Yorkers.
      Colleen: And how would you know?
      Ted: Because I live here! That's right, I live here. Yes, we're full of crap. Yes, we pretended to be from out of town so we could sleep with you and leave in the morning. But you know what's even worse than that? Saying you're a New Yorker when you're not. Because this is the greatest city in the world, and you have to earn the right to call yourself a New Yorker. So why don't you girls crawl into the open sewer pipe you call the Holland tunnel and flush yourselves back to 'pretty much New York.' Because I will do a lot to get laid, but I am NOT going to New Jersey!

    • Marshall: I am such a jerk.
      Barney: Yeah. Wait, why?

    • Lily: Baby, could you sign this?
      Marshall: Wow. You wrote on both sides of a thank you card to my third cousin for a blender you haven't even taken out of the box yet.
      Lily: It's a really nice blender.
      Marshall: Well, if you like the blender so much why don't you marry it?
      Lily: I can't, I married you. That's how we got the blender.
