      Barney: "Problem?" You can't get a girl pregnant—that's the dream! I'd give my first-born to not be able to have children.

    • Ted: I thought [Sandy] needed to listen to Common Sense and Reasonable Discourse.
      Robin: Oh, God, tell me those aren't the names of your fists?
      Ted: They're my feet. I'm actually more of a kicker.

    • Marshall: I've been with Barney since 9:00 AM. Between the sexual harassment seminar all morning and the secretary beauty pageant all afternoon, he hasn't left my sight.
