    • Marshall: We're together, and 'it doesn't seem right' is just gonna drop trou for you.
      Lily: It's just this kid, Hunter, from my arts...
      Marshall: The kid with the frisbee and the soul patch? He's so cool and mysterious. And he's a little bit of a jerk, just enough so you think that maybe you can change him.

    • Barney: Hey, guys! Guess what I got? A new dart!
      Robin: Oh wow, a new dart!
      Ted: Hey, that new dart is great!
      Robin: I did not know you were such a fan of "new dart", Barney!
      Barney: Oh yes, Robyn, I just love "nude art"..."nude art"
      Barney: [after an awkward stare from Marshall] "nude art"!
      Marshall: You found the painting, didn't you?

    • Lily: (trying to paint Barney with a sword in his hand) I don't think your sword will fit.
      Barney: I get that a lot.

    • Barney: (seeing his nude painting) She left out my little Barney! Barney jr., my barnana. Little barnacle....

    • Barney: You have been blessed with a wonderful gift.
      Lily: Thank you.
      Barney: I meant me.

    • Ted: (after watching Marshall steal his nude painting from the bar) One of my worst fears just came true- I saw Marshall grab himself naked.

    • Lily: (about Marshall's nude painting) I knew this day would come.
      Marshall: How did you know that?
      Lily: Because I didn't hide it very well.

    • Ted: (about the naked painting of Marshall) This is awesome times awesome. It's awesome squared.

    • Ted: (about his boss) Did you see what he was wearing today? It was like his pants were being held up by his nipples.

  • Notes

    • The German episode title is "Säulen der Menschheit", meaning "Pillars of Mankind". The French title is "En cher et en nu", meaning "Expensive and Nude" (which is a play on words because "cher" is pronounced the same as "chair" and the phrase "en chair et en os" is a common idiom meaning "in the flesh (and bone)"). The Italian title is "Il colonnato", meaning "The Colonnade".
