Voice of Ted, 2030
Robin: He's not my boyfriend. He's just this guy I've been seeing for a couple of weeks.
Lily: (in a sing-song voice) Boyfriend.
Marshall: So why haven't we met him?
Robin: We're not really ready to go public yet.
Barney: (in a sing-song voice) Married.
Lily: How about a Halloween double-date?
Robin: I don't know, we were kinda thinking about staying at home and dressing up as naked people.
Barney: (about the "Slutty Pumpkin" girl) You know, Ted, it's been four years. She could be engaged or married or, God forbid, fat.
Lily: We are so gonna win the costume contest this year.
Marshall: First prize, $50 gift certificate at the bar.
Ted: And how much did you pay for your costumes?
Mike: Where's your costume, Gretel?
Robin: You thought I was...Oh, I was just kidding. I gotta stop making jokes in e-mails. It's so hard to convey tone.
Barney: This party sucks. There are seven chicks here. (guy in dress takes off blonde wig) There are six chicks here.
Lily: Look, it's Halloween. Just put on the girlfriend costume for the night.
Robin: OK, what am I supposed to do? Buy him a giant teddy bear or something?
Barney: Every Halloween, I bring a spare costume in case I strike out with the hottest girl at the party. That way I have a second chance to make a first impression. What's with the face?
Ted: It's half you're pathetic, half I have to pee.
Marshall: Apple tart, excellent choice, Lilypad.
Lily: Thanks, Marshmallow.
Robin: Well, let's dig in, Mi... Mi... Microwave Oven.
Mike: We're crazy for this stuff.
Robin: I'm crazy and you're crazy for tiramisu.
Mike: We love tiramisu. Am I wrong in saying that. ?
Robin: No, no, no, I mean it just sounds a little bit weird, doesn't it? We love tiramisu. Is it really a group activity, loving tiramisu?
Ted: Come on, Barney, this is not about the odds, this is about believing. This girl, she represents something to me, I don't know, hope.
Barney: Wow. I did not understand a word you just said.
Robin: I never played any team sports
Ted: Are we playing "I never" 'coz there's nothing left but peach schnapps.
Robin: Well, what if I'm just a cold person? Tonight, Mike was willing to look like a complete idiot for me, but I couldn't be Gretel. Why can't I be Gretel?
Ted: Because you just haven't met the right Hansel yet. One day you're gonna meet a guy who's gonna make you want to look like a complete idiot.
Robin: How do you do this Ted? How do sit out here all night, in the cold, and still have faith that your pumpkin's going to show up?
Ted: Well, I'm pretty drunk. Look I know the odds are, the love of my life isn't going to magically walk through that door in a pumpkin costume at 2:43 in the morning. But it just seems as nice a spot as any to just ... you know, sit and wait.
Barney: Okay, I'm leaving. But just know, this Victoria's Secret party is on a yacht! And what will be sticking to that yacht? The Barnicle!
Ted: Really? That's the nickname now?
Barney: Yeah, the Barnicle!
Ted: Barnicle Barney?
Barney: That's it.
Barney: Barnicle out!
Ted: Have fun, Barnicle.
Barney: Okay, here's the plan, and I crap you not. I am getting us into the Victoria's Secret Halloween party. Trust me, by the end of the night, your chad will not be hanging.
Ted: We can get rejected by supermodels any day of the year. Tonight, I'm gonna go up tp the roof, I'm gonna have a few beers, I'm gonna wait for the slutty pumpkin. It's just what I do.
Barney (weighing the options on his hand): Hmm.
Barney: Victoria's Secret models prancing around in bras and panties, or
Barney: Yale preppies reuniting their stupid acapella group.
(pretends to hear his left hand say something)
Barney: What's that, left hand? Right hand sucks? Word.
Ted: I'm heading up to the roof.
Barney (to his hands): Well, boys, looks like it's just you and me.
(pretending to hear his hand talk again)
Barney: What's that? Self-five? Nice.
(gives himself a high five)
Barney: We out!
Ted: I just met the perfect woman. She's funny, she's beautiful, she loves "Star Wars"...
Marshall: Woah woah woah, what's her take on Ewoks?
Ted: Loves them!
Marshall: Oh, good. I don't know why people are so cynical about Ewoks; the Rebellion would have failed without the Ewoks.
Ted: And get this: She's a marine biologist, she spent a year in Antarctica studying penguins.
Marshall: Oh, penguins are cool. Kinda like black-and-white Ewoks. I approve.
Ted (to someone in a big penguin costume): Excuse me? This is going to sound crazy, but... I met someone on this roof four years ago, and they mixed that cocktail, and they loved penguins... by any chance, was that you?
(the penguin seems to smile)
Ted: It's you. Everyone thought I was crazy, but...
(the penguin unmasks to reveal Barney underneath)
Barney: You are such a LOSER.
Barney: Come on, I came back for you, Ted. I penguin-suited up to show you the error of your ways. And to score Hula Girl's number. Check and check.
(Barney is wearing a penguin suit and points penguin flipper up towards Ted)
Ted: What are you doing?
Barney: I'm flippering you off!
Barney: Oh, you're dangerous, Maverick. Your ego's writing checks your body can't cash!
Marshall: (To Ted) Dude guess what?
Ted: Your costumes came?
Marshall: Our costumes - ...Yes! That is why we are best friends!
Barney: A girl dresses up like a witch, she's a slutty witch. If she's a cat, she's a slutty cat. If she's a nurse-
Lily: Wow, we get it.
Barney: She's a slutty nurse.
Lily: Guess what came in the mail today?
Marshall: Our costumes? Do they rule?
Lily: They rule. And yours is 100% wool so you won't get hypothermia like last year.
Marshall(deep voice): Tarzan nipple blue.
Marshall: I'm not gay! I have sex with my parrot all the time!...that came out wrong.
Barney: You are such a loser!...I penguin-suited up for you!
Girl at party: You sure are a charming devil...
Barney: I'm also a horny devil!
Barney: Flight Suit Up!
Ted: (about the "Slutty Pumpkin" girl) How great of a story would it be if I actually ended up marrying this girl?
Lily: On the off chance that happens, maybe we should stop calling her the Slutty Pumpkin.
Robin: Am I just wired wrong?
Ted: No. You dumped me, so obviously you have abysmal taste in men, but . . .
Robin: How can a pumpkin costume be sexy?
Ted: It was carved in strategic places.
The German episode title is "Die Kürbis-Schlampe", meaning "The Pumpkin-Slut". The French title is "Halloween". The Italian title is "La zucca supersexy", meaning "Supersexy Pumpkin".
International Air Dates: Germany: September 27, 2008 on ProSieben; Czech Republic: December 7, 2009 on Prima COOL
Music: "Danger Zone" by Kenny Loggins played when Barney visits Ted to tell him "Flightsuit up!"; "Inside Of Love" by Nada Surf at the very end of the episode.
Marshall: I still think we should have won as Sonny and Cher. Maybe if I'd worn the red dress. Ha! If I could turn back time.
The song "If I Could Turn Back Time" was sung by Cher and reached number three on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1989.
Top Gun: Barney dresses like and quotes Iceman from the Tom Cruise hit Top Gun. He also refers to Ted as Maverick and announces his entry by playing Danger Zone out in the hallway.
It's the Slutty Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!
Ted waiting for the Slutty Pumpkin every Halloween despite the urgings of his friends is very similar to the Peanuts comic strip and animated specials, where Linus would wait in a pumpkin patch each Halloween waiting for the Great Pumpkin.
Also, when Ted spies the penguin who he thinks might be Slutty Pumpkin, the acapella group is humming the Peanuts tune "Linus and Lucy".
When Marshall comes out dressed as a pirate, the costume is similar to Captain Jack Sparrow from the hit movie, "Pirates of the Carribean: The Curse of the Black Pearl."
