Quotes

Cindy: [Ted just got a pretty girl away from being invited to a drinking party by three frat guys] I swear, every week, I get invited by some frat guy to a kegger, and I say, "I'm a PhD candidate, and I'm writing a dissertation titled Foreign Direct Investment and Inter-generational Linkages in Consumption Behavior."
Ted Mosby: And what does frat guy say to that?
Cindy: [Drawls] 'That's hot.'
Ted Mosby: [laughs] ... Actually, that is kinda hot.
Cindy: Ted, I have a confession - I recognize you. Do you remember your first class last ...

The Best Episode Of How I Met Your Mother Ever
14 January 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is the show's 100th episode. And by far my favourite episode. It is hilarious, and the musical number at the end just makes it even better.

Plot In A Paragraph: When he becomes obsessed with a new female bartender (Stacey Keibler) at Maclarens, who hates men who wear suits, Barney finds himself in the strange position of having to choose between girls or suits. Meanwhile Ted gets one step closer to the mother (which is actually what the show is supposed to be about, because let's be honest, sometimes we forget) when he starts dating a student (Rachel Bilson), Back at Maclarens, Lily is amazed that Marshall does not find the new bartender hot, whilst Robin is upset at no longer being viewed as the hottest girl in the bar.

Any episode that features the brilliant Neil Patrick Harris's character Barney Stinson in the main storyline is always excellent, and this one is no exception, in fact I consider this my favourite episode of HIMYM. The musical number in Barney's mind is TV gold, and Alyson Hannigan looks great in a suit.

I could go on and on about the brilliance of this episode, and in particular Neil Patrick Harris but I won't bore you with it.
