How I Met Your Mother 1.03 "Sweet Taste of Liberty" [watched on tape: 2006-09-16]

[quotes from tv.com]

Robin: Guys are like the subway. You miss one, another comes along in five minutes.
Lily: Unless it's the end of the night, then you get on anything!

Knowing what will happen 18/19 episodes later, I found Lily's insecurity really interesting.

Ted: (to Barney) Don't say "legendary." You're too liberal with the word "legendary."
     True story, yo.

Barney: It's going to be legen...wait for it...and I hope you're not lactose-intolerant 'cause the second half of that word is...dairy!

Ted: My friend does this thing where he goes to the airport and leaves fake luggage in order to meet women.
Airport Security Guard: No one is that lame.
Ted: He is. He is that lame. Barney, tell them you're that lame.

Always having a story... so not enough for me. I mean, I believe that it's enough for Ted but I don't work like that. Barney grows on me like a fungus, but I don't think he could ever be my friend (not that he would want to be, of course). We also get some of his insecurity, which is largely what made him grow on me (just like I finally fell for Jayne I saw the teddy bear under the gruff). What was the line? "Without you [Ted, i.e. a partner in his lunacy] I'm just a [somethingerother] loon." (See, this is what happens when i don't take notes when I watch.)
