Voice of Ted, 2030
When the gang was in the cab after they left club, they are yelling to each other like they are deaf because of loud club music. But this is impossible because Ted spent almost whole evening with Coat Check Girl and when Barney and Ted were talking in the club before they left they were talking normally.
When Barney is explaining to Ted that 'Okay' is a hot new bar, Ted places his left hand on his stomach, in the next scene, it's his right hand and in the next, it's gone.
Future Ted: So, kids, would you like to hear the story of the time I went deaf?
Son: Why does he even ask?
Daughter: I know, he's just gonna tell us anyway.
Robin: He's even getting me into the VIP room.
Barney: He just wants to show you his own VIP, if you know what I mean.
Robin: All right, what does VIP stand for in your little universe?
Barney: Well, I know that the 'P' is penis.
Lily: Marshall and I are just growing up.
Marshall: And it's gonna be sweet, too. Like tonight, we're tasting all these different wines, pairing them up with these cool, gourmet cheeses.
Barney: Wow. Who knew being in a committed heterosexual relationship could make a guy so gay.
Ted: All right, cool kids are leaving now. Grandma, grandpa, don't wait up.
Nerdy Guy #3: Oh, come on, he just got here.
Nerdy Guy #1: Probably famous.
Nerdy Guy #2: Oh yeah, isn't there a third Affleck brother? Keith Affleck or Brian Affleck or something.
Nerdy Guy #3: Holy crap, we just saw Brian Affleck!
Robin: (on phone) ...and it's not like I care so much about getting into the VIP room. I have been in tons of VIP rooms. Not exactly a VIP room virgin.
Lily: (about Marshall)He just left in the middle of our own party. You don't do that. Unless of course you're chasing after somebody who's already done it and then I think it's OK.
Robin: Well, I hate to take his side. But come on, a wine tasting? What's the big plan for next Saturday? Scrabble night?
Lily: Don't check your e-mail.
Robin: Why are you becoming this person? I heard that in college you flashed a campus tour group on a dare.
Lily: Once on a dare. The other times were just for fun.
Marshall: I think we're going to wait on the baby thing. I mean I love babies. Babies rule. Pudgy arms and stuff. But, uh, they make you old. Kinda like this anchor weighing you down to one spot... forever.
Claire: I'm three months pregnant.
Marshall: (surprised) ...Not awkward, guys. Not awkward unless we let it be awkward.
(nervously smiles, then walks away)
(after leaving the loud club, everyone is talking very loudly in the cab ride home)
Ted: I'm really glad you guys came out tonight!
Marshall: You know, dude, can I just say something? It kinda hurt that you guys didn't invite me out. I mean, I know things have changed since I got engaged, but it would have been nice to be asked.
Ted: I'm sorry. I just assumed...
Barney: They played some great songs tonight!
Ted: I mean, lately...
Marshall: I know, I know, it just seems like suddenly we're living in two different worlds. Maybe you've got more in common with Barney.
Barney (turns around): What?
Ted: Are you crazy? You think I like going to those clubs? I'd so much rather go to your fruity little wine tasting.
Lily: (waking up) Oh, my God, I'm gonna barf! Where's my purse! Where's my purse! I -... No, I'm okay.
(goes back to sleep)
Ted: The problem is you can't do any of that couples stuff unless you have someone to do it with! And the only way I'm gonna find that someone is by going out and doing stupid singles stuff with Barney!
Barney (turns around): What?
Ted: But, man, when I find her, we're gonna have some bad-ass wine tastings.
Marshall: It's a plan. Hey, maybe it'll be that cute Coat Check Girl!
Ted: Yeah! Maybe it will be!
Older Ted: It wasn't.
Marshall: You know, Ted, I don't say this nearly enough, but I really value our...
Barney: Hey, that place has great salads!
Ted (to the Coat Check Girl): Hey. Thanks for saving my night. I'll talk to you soon?
(Coat Check Girl smiles at him)
Ted: Hey, tip her, Barney.
Barney: Why, I didn't check a coat, and even if I did, on principle, tip jars have become so ...
Ted: (to the Coat Check Girl) Funny story, Barney was grinding with this girl all night ...
(gives her some cash and leaves quickly)
Ted: That's a handy new trick.
Coat Check Girl: Yeah, see, if everyone keeps telling you something's supposed to be fun, it's usually not.
Ted: Right. So, by that logic, if you and I were to, say, go out on a date...
Coat Check Girl: ...Well, we couldn't go anywhere that's supposed to be fun.
Ted: Right. The DMV it is.
Coat Check Girl: Then we'll get our teeth cleaned.
Ted: Sounds awful. It's a date.
Ted: But there's still one big question that need to be answered...
Ted: How many of these coats do you think I could put on all at once?
(seeing Ted about to leave)
Marshall: Ah-ah! Coat wench, do not uncheck this man's jacket!... sorry, I was just being dramatic, you're not a coat wench.
Coat Check Girl: No, 'coat wench', I like it. I should get a sign made up.
Ted: What are you doing here, Lily let you go?
Marshall: Lily? Psshh, who cares, right?
Ted: You are so dead.
Marshall: Oh, I'm so dead.
Robin: Say you're my bitch.
Ted: I'm your bitch. Why this time?
Barney: "Okay" is the name of a club. It's really exclusive. A friend of mine once stood outside for two hours and didn't get in.
Ted: A friend of yours named "you?"
Barney: No, a friend of mine named "Shut up!"
Coat Check Girl: Because all of the stuff you're suppose to like, usually sucks. Like these clubs, or cruises.
Ted: Or New Years Eve.
Coat Check Girl: Or the Superbowl.
Ted: Or parades.
Coat Check Girl: The Rockettes.
Ted: Or parades.
Coat Check Girl: You said that already!
Ted: I really hate parades!
Robin: I get recognized once and I start thinking I'm Julia Roberts. I'm no VIP, I'm not even an IP. I'm just a lonely little P, sitting here in the gutter.
Lily: You know something? I'd take a P in the gutter over Julia Roberts any day.
(Both realize what she just said and laugh.)
[Ted and Kelly talks at the really loud club]
Ted: You really like this place?
Ted: You have no idea what I'm saying, do you?
Ted: I'm from outer space!
Ted: I got thrown out of Sea World for humping a dolphin!
[The music suddenly stops]
Ted: I'm wetting my pants!
[Ted has been introduced to one of Robin' s female friends at a really loud disco.]
Ted: So, how do you know Robin?
Ted: Is that near Westchester?
Kelly: I would love one! Just a beer!
Ted: These strategies ever work for you?
Barney: The question is: Do these strategies ever NOT work for me? Either way the answer is about half the time.
Robin: You are gonna love Kelly, she's fun, she's smart, she lives in the moment..
Barney: Translation: She's ugly, she's ugly, she ugs in the ugly.
Robin: Oh, and she's totally hot!
[Lily tells Marshall about her colleague who does classy grown-up stuff with her fiance]
Lily: Maybe we should start doing grown-up stuff.
Marshall: It was some pretty grown up stuff we did this morning.
Lily: Yea, but it wasn't classy.
Barney: Ted, get your coat we're leaving.
Ted: What happened to the cute broad you were grinding with?
Barney: Promise not to tell anyone ever in your life? Ever? This can't be one of those stories...'funny time this one time Barney was...' none of that. Promise? Ted Nods, and Barney Whispers That was my cousin Leslie!
Nerd: Those were the four greatest and only breasts I have ever seen.
Lily: (seeing Barney's shiny shirt) Hey, we wore the same the shirt! No, wait, that's just my shirt reflected in yours.
Barney: One of the 24 ways women and fish are alike is that they're both attracted to bright objects. Don't you ever read my blog?

Samm Levine guest stars on this episode. He and Jason Segel also shared the screen on another tv show, Freaks and Geeks.
In the DVD commentary for this episode, Alyson Hannigan said that filming the scene in which Marshall and Lily kiss while they dance was awkward because of both the height difference between her and Jason Segel and trying not to bump each other's teeth.
Music Featured In This Episode:
- Marshall performs his dance solo to "Shine" by The Lovefreekz
- The last song played at the club (when all five friends are there) is "Heaven" by DJ Sammy & Yanou feat. Do
Barney mentions that he has a blog. This blog can be found in the How I Met Your Mother section of CBS.com or BarneysBlog.com.
Ted calls Barney Tin Man in reference to his shiny shirt.
The Tin Man was a character in the childrens classic The Wizard Of Oz.
"And his hair was perfect!"
Barney's line as Ted opens the door is from Warren Zevon's "Werewolves of London." The full line reads, "I saw a werewolf drinking a pina colada at Trader Vic's / And his hair was perfect."
