In Brooklyn, Marshall Eriksen, a terribly insecure, sissy but sweet law student, pops the question to his assertive girlfriend Lily Aldrin, in an inadvertently explosive way (with champagne). This makes their year long cahoot, Ted Mosby, anxious that he may be left all alone. His overbearing 'other best friend', Barney Stinson, forces Ted to play a 'pick-up' game in the bar where he has decided to hunt for Lebanese girls. To both their surprise, Ted actually meets a suitable girlfriend, TV reporter Robin. As soon as he sees her on TV, Ted rushes to her apartment (with five dogs) to declare his love - while the others wait in Bangladeshi Rajit's cab- which startles her.

During this episode, Ted's kids are dressed differently than they are for the rest of the series. The couch and background are also different. (The implication during the series is that, the whole show is meant to be a story being told in one sitting.) See more
The next night, I took her out to this little bistro in Brooklyn.
Wow. That is one badass blue French horn.
Sort of looks like a Smurf penis.
Son, a piece of advice: when you go on a first date, you really don't want to say "Smurf penis". Girls don't ordinarily like that. But this was no ordinary girl.
