  • Trivia

    • While they indicate having to go to international waters to marry, and even mention the twelve miles to get there, while on the boat the view of the Boardwalk casinos is that which would be seen from no more than a few hundred yards offshore.

    • Even though the keno receptionist calls out #35, and then #27, neither of these numbers lights up on the keno board in the background.

  • Quotes

    • Marshall: (calling on the phone) Yeah! So, now, she's gone and the wedding's off. // What do you call someone who just takes off and leaves like that? What do you call that?! (shocked on the reply) Th-that's a little strong. I can't believe you used a word like that! Geez, Grandma!

    • Barney: I can get us that money.
      Ted: How?
      Barney: Have you noticed that all day Chinese men keep coming up to me?
      Ted: Yes. Have you noticed I haven't asked about it because I'm too afraid of the answer?

    • Ted: Wait, wait, wait! I don't understand! People get married in Atlantic City all the time. Registrar: Yes, they do but they don't elope. They choose Atlantic City for its white sand beaches, world-class amenities and exotic Riviera feel. Lily: Have you been outside?! Ted: There is half an orca whale rotting not 20 feet from the cabana!

    • Registrar: You are aware that this is not Las Vegas.
      Robin: Tell me about it. In Vegas casinos pump in oxygen. Here, most guests bring their own.

    • Barney: Ah, AC. Always in decline, never hitting bottom. It's good to be back, old friend.

    • Barney: Marshall, I'm your best man.
      Marshall: You're not my best man.
      Ted: Right here.
      Barney: And as your best man, I have to throw you a bachelor party. That's part of being a best friend.
      Marshall: You're not my best friend.
      Ted: Right here.

    • Marshall: Barney, split your tiles. You can triple your money if you find the jelly bean.

    • Lily: We're going to Atlantic City to elope, right now!
      Barney: Congratulations, Lily! Marshall, you're getting married? What the hell?

    • Lily: I can't even look Mrs. Butterworth in the eye.

    • Marshall: Until you see a ring on this finger don't expect me to put out.
      Lily: Yeah, right!

    • Marshall: Hi, we need a marriage license but we need to skip the waiting period because we're in love. Registrar: Aaww... I'm gonna waive this waiting period right now! Lily: Really!? Registrar: Is what I would say if I could waive the waiting period but, unfortunately, only a judge can do that... Lily: Oh! So, can we see a judge? Registrar: Absolutely! Lily: Really!? Registrar: Is what I would say if there was any chance of you seeing a judge today, which there isn't... Marshall: Why are you doing this to us?! Registrar: Because, you're on Candid Camera... Robin: Really!? Registrar: Is what I would say-- Marshall: You know what?! We get it!

    • Lily: Oh Robin, that's a really cute outfit.
      Robin: Really? Thanks..
      Lily: Yea, it has to go, I'm the bride and you can't look better than me.

    • Barney: If there was any shame in a dude getting a pedicure I don't think there would've been a feature about it in Details magazine.

    • Marshall: Do you still wanna? That's like the lamest proposal ever!

    • Lily: Oh my God! These pancakes are delicious!
      Marshall: Yes! Thank you. I learned how to cook while you were gone this summer.
      Lily: Wow! Do you want to cook dinner tonight?
      Marshall: Yeah, sure...How about pancakes?

    • Judge: What was that look? What's going on?
      Barney: They broke up over the summer. Lily totally ran off to San Francisco, and these two just had sex in the closet.
      (Outraged and surprised looks from Ted and Robin)
      Barney: What? We're under oath!
      Ted: No we're not.
      Barney: Yeah, we are. He's a judge.
      Ted: Did we take an oath? Do you even know what an oath is?
      Barney: Uh, yeah. Courthouse, (points above him) oath. We're under it.
