Voice of Ted, 2030
Goof: After Lily and Marshall decide to spend the last two weeks before their wedding apart he gets up to go get a beer but a couple of frames before he took a drink from his beer and you can see that the bottle is almost full.
When Barney hits 100 on the Big Wheel, he wins $1,000 and a Bonus Spin (as per the rules), however the bonus spin is not depicted in the episode.
Marshall says that his mother wouldn't like him eating junk food; however, in "Belly Full of Turkey" Marshall's mom gives Lily a recipe for a salad that contains, among other things, gummy bears, Funyuns, and potato chips.
Lily: I lost a pound!
Robin: That's impossible! You ate McDonald's every meal for 3 days.
Lily: I knew that Super Size Me guy was full of it!
Robin: Well, it must be the wedding stress! We just got to up the intake. Lily Aldrin, drop and give me
20 bites of fudge!
Robin: Don't nibble at it. Attack it! Come on, Lily. You can do better than that!
Lily: I can't!
Robin: Well, eat faster, before
your body figures out it's full.
Lily: I'm trying
Robin: Oh, are you gonna cry? You gonna cry? Skinny little baby's gonna cry? Well, eat, damn it, eat!
[Ted comes out of his bedroom for a late-night bathroom trip when he notices Marshall entering the apartment.]
Ted: Marshall? What're you doing?
Marshall: (hesitantly) ...Going to the bathroom?
Ted: In the hall?
Ted: (accusingly) You're wide awake.
Marshall: ...Robbing us?
Barney: I gaze upon the glory of The Price is Right and I see the face of America, and it is divine. Plus, you know, hot chicks on sport cars.
Barney: You guys know how it's hard to be friends with me, because I'm so awesome?
Ted: Yes, it's hard to be friends with you, go on.
Barney: Well, this isn't going to make it any easier. I'm going to be on The Price is Right.
Lily: Damn it! Nobody's bought us anything cool yet off our registry.
Barney: What's on it?
Lily: Lots of stuff: kitchen aid artisan series tilt head mixer..
Barney: Retail price 319.99, what else?
Lily: Marshmallow, don't forget to pack my 'Night, Night-tape'.
Marshall gets up from the sofa
Barney: 'Night, Night-tape'? You made a tape of you saying night, night to her?
Lily: He doesn't say it, he sings it.
Lily: My mom is driving me cra..
Ted and Robin walks in the door
Lily: Oh my God, you guys are covered in sauce. We'll get to that, me first! My mom is driving me crazy about the wedding music!
Bob: You're doing splendidly, son.
Barney: What did you just say?

Marshall: I'm sorry baby, I ate a bunch of ice-cream earlier today.
Lily: Aww, baby, you know we're lactose intolerant.

The scenes in Robin's apartment were refilmed to remove the blue French horn from her mantle after the writers broke the story for the season finale.
Music featured in this episode:
The Price Is Right theme song (slightly remixed for this episode)
Neil Patrick Harris (Barney Stinson) received an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actor In A Comedy Series after this episode was submitted for consideration.
The Price is Right scenes were filmed after a real Price is Right taping, in front of the Price is Right audience.
This episode was formerly known as "May the Best Man Win".
This episode is very much like the episode of Golden Girls, "You Gotta Have Hope" (Episode 17 of Season 4, Episode 93 overall). Bob Hope guest starred. In this episode Rose believed that Bob Hope was her father and she ended up meeting him and he said some jokes for a charity benefit that she, Blanche, and Dorothy were hosting.
The episode title is a reference to the finalé to every episode of The Price is Right—the Showcase Showdown.
