Barney Stinson's Best Pickup Lines

Have you met Barney Stinson (Neil Patrick Harris)? He's the resident ladies' man on How I Met Your Mother—and his pick-up lines will knock your socks off. Not to mention your pants. In light of this morning's news that, come March, Jennifer Lopez will appear on the show as a self-help author who tries to put an end to Barney's womanizing ways, we've collected a few of his most legendary come-ons. What up!

5. The Airport Pickup
Barney brings Ted (Josh Radnor) along to pick up women from at the airport.



4. The Ted Mosby
Barney takes advantage of Ted's most depressing moment.



3. The Lorenzo Van Matterhorn
Barney consults his imfamous playbook.



2. The Scuba Diver
Barney references the playbook, again.



1. The Fell from Heaven
Barney pulls off the greatest pickup line of all time.



BONUS: The "Haaaave you met Ted?"
Barney performs a little community service.

@xybosoxxy I agree with you completely, just like kids shows in the morning. I don't want to watch a kids show as I get ready for work/school. There at 18+ year-old up at that hour! NOT GOOD!



But seriously, parents can turn off the TV, or even block the show.

How can CBS rationalize "How I Met Your Mother" at 8PM on Monday nights? The episode tonight with Barney and seven different girls on seven different nights, validated no less by Jim Nance, goes beyond provocative. It borders on the absurd. Maybe at 10 or 10:30 but at the height of prime time? Twelve, thirteen, and fourteen year olds being your partial audience? Is this really the kind of shows CBS wants to air at this hour? NOT GOOD!

@Sagerian Well how can I contain myself when I'm so depressed? ;) I rewatched number one, it had me laughing this time. "Wow, maybe she really does have a brain injury."

Where did you leave "The Timemachine"? That is the greatest one yet, in which he pretends to be from the future, and tells a girl to sleep with his present self, which she does.

I love how TV.com includes Barney on the list of most annoying TV characters as a pathetic joke that's not funny anymore, states as part of the second most annoying list that everyone agrees Barney needs to go, and then they turn around and pay tribute to Barney's brilliance. Are they having trouble making up their minds?
