  • Quotes

    • Ted: Shouldn't we look for the people who don't just tolerate our little quirks, but kind of like them? Even if it means finding ourselves on another blind date with each other seven years from now?
      Jen: Oh, God, I hope that doesn't happen!

    • Lily: Baby, you have my full permission to fantasize about stripper Lily. And since she's basically me, maybe you won't feel so bad.
      Marshall: Thanks, baby. I'm so lucky to have you. And stripper you.
      Lily: Whoo! Bring out stripper Lily!

    • Ted: There's the Chrysler building, Times Square, and at twelve o' clock, a rotund couple going at it against the glass.
      Jen: Aw, that's sweet. Oh, snack break.
      Ted: Wow. Letting the guy eat pizza off your back. That's love.

    • Lily: So you went to a strip club? And there was a stripper who looked exactly like me?
      Marshall: Yeah. Listen, baby, I know you must be mad...
      Lily: Awesome! I'll bet all the guys wanted to touch her so bad! But all you can do is look, unless you go into a room in the back, but you gotta pay extra for that.

    • Marshall: Lily, sometimes I fantasize about other women. It just happens. But first I have to dream about you passing away because even in fantasy land, I could never cheat on you. You're just my life baby, and I love you.
      Lily: You kill me off? Fantasize about other girls all you want, but could you maybe not murder me!

    • Jen: Oh, yeah! Now, I remember, we went in here for a drink with your friends. Who I loved... or hated, depending or whether you're still friends with them.
      Ted: Still friends.
      Jen: They're family, Ted!

    • Ted: Do you realize what this means? In the past seven years, we've done a complete lap of all the single people in New York only to end up with each other!
      Jen: Whoa. We're going to die alone, aren't we?
      Ted: Well, you have your cats.

    • Ted: We've been on this same date.
      Jen: In this exact same restaurant!
      Ted: Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't remember that date going that well.
      Jen: Yeah. I remember thinking you were kind of snobby.
      Ted: You dress your cats up in weird costumes, don't you?
      Jen: They're not weird. See, you're being snobby again!

    • Barney: (on phone) Ted, we found a stripper who looks exactly like Lily!
      Ted: I'm in the middle of a date! Take a picture!
      Barney: I will. But first, I'm going to make Marshall watch as I wedge Ulysses S. Grant between his wife's tatas!

    • Jen: So, any thoughts on food?
      Ted: Yeah. You want to share the oysters?
      Jen: I'd love to share the oysters.
      Ted: Good, cause if you wouldn't that would be... mighty shellfish.

    • Barney: Guess who just got four tickets to the "Origins of Chewbacca" Star Wars exhibit?
      Lily: Why?
      Barney: No, I said, "guess who?"
      Lily: I heard you.
