How I Met Your Mother 2.02 "The Scorpion and the Toad"

Raise your hand if you (a) recognized the allusion in the episode title/bar name, (b) recognized Barney+Marshall as playing out that story.  (Loved Ted's rejoicing at being free of Barney, btw.)

I liked that Marshall wasn't ready/willing to take back Lily (yet).  And how much did Alyson Hannigan's repeated line there remind me of Tara's "Can you just be kissing me now?" (BtVS Season 6)


Barney: "You just checked out Robin's ass."
Robin: "Hey, tell him thanks.  I felt like I was having a bad ass day."
Lily: "It's a great ass."

Robin: "Lily's back in town."
Ted: "And you let me go first?!"

Marshall: "I'm a third-year law student at Columbia, so if the workload really does kill you, I can probably get a conviction :) "

Ted: "Okay, we're way past truth-telling Lily..."

Marshall: "But you can never ask me why."
Lily: "You gave me chlamydia, you jerk!" [Then.] "You gave my twin sister chlamydia, you slime!"
Barney: "Well played, Erikson, well played."
