Episode Quotes

Ted Mosby: They're actually called British Morning Socks.
Zoey Pierson: Don't get in your own way!
Barney Stinson: February 13th, a magical night, where a Ten has the self esteem of a four and the depraved enthusiasm of a Two.
Robin Scherbatsky: Desperation Day had come and gone and you have neither gone nor come.

Mistakes/Goofs

  • Goof (factual errors): When playing the Nintendo Marshall mentions he has Super Mario Kart, a Game for the SNES console, not the 8-bit NES. Later in the episode Marshall and Ted are playing with controllers for the NES Console.
  • Goof (factual errors): When Marshall shows up while Lily is watching Predator, we can hear Arnold Schwarzenegger saying "Come on, come on. Kill me! I'm here... Kill Me!" Then, a few seconds later, we hear machine gun fire. There is no machine gun fire in the movie "Predator" after Schwarzenegger says those lines. These lines are right after he and the Predator physically fight and Schwarzenegger is tempting the Predator into his trap.

Trivia

  • The shirt that Marshall wears throughout the episode says 'Tarkenton Physical Education' on it. Fran Tarkenton was the quarterback for the Minnesota Vikings for most of the 60s and 70s where Marshall is from.
