Episode Quotes

Ted Mosby: That's crazy, she - she wants to bake...
Robin Scherbatsky: Guys booty call girls after 2am with a drunkenly slurred "Whatcha doin'?", but when a lady booty calls a guy, she invents a respectable excuse to mask the fact that she wants to get stuck, real good. It's called class, Ted.
Barney Stinson: [about Robin and her anti-Valentine's Day friends] Please, you might as well be dog-earing a tear stained bridal magazine while wolfing down the box of chocolates you had delivered to yourself at work from your fiancé that no one has ever met.
Bev: Gerard is real!
Marshall Eriksen: I miss my dad, Ted... I miss him so much.
Ted Mosby: I know.
Marshall Eriksen: When I was a kid, we would spend the summers in the upper peninsula. And every year we wouldn't get in the cabin till the middle of the night. And so, it'd be pitch black in the middle of the woods. I could never see anything in front of the headlights, but I always felt so safe... cause my dad was driving. He was like some sort of superhero that could just see way out into the darkness... and now he's just gone, and it's pitch black. I can't see where I'm going. I can't see anything...

Trivia

  • Nazanin Boniadi, who plays Barney's love interest - Nora, was a Scientologist. She was 'selected' to be Tom Cruise's potential wife. She spent some time with him and got close. Then, a senior member of Scientology came to visit. Nazanin was unwell and didn't give the best impression of herself. The relationship ended swiftly after that. She was apparently heartbroken. She has gone on to find success in Homeland.
  • 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.
