  • Trivia

    • When Lily was lying on the couch at the end of this episode, main entrance to her apartment was behind her head. When Marshall came in to the living room he came from the kitchen direction, without his jacket and with glass of wine and there was no possibility that Lily didn't see him before, but she was surprised to see him.

  • Quotes

    • Barney: Every woman wants a date on Valentine's Day. That neediness reaches its climax— what up—on February 13th, a magical night when a ten has the self-esteem of a four and the depraved enthusiasm of a two.

    • Barney: Weddings were forbidden under ancient Roman law, so St. Valentine performed them in secret, under threat of death.
      Ted: That's actually true.
      Barney: Wait, there's more.
      Ted: This won't be.

  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • Barney's 'hot girl vision' and accompanying guttural noises are a play on the infrared vision and noises of the title hunter in John McTiernan's 1987 film Predator, which is also the film that Marshall and Lily watch as their Valentine's Day tradition.
