How I Met Your Mother 1.06 "The Slutty Pumpkin" [rerun 2006-10-30]

Yup, I approve of this twist on Linus and the Great Pumpkin.

(Also: penguins as black-and-white Ewoks.)

Gotta love how people take archetypal male/female pairings without thinking.  I mean, Hansel&Gretel totally hits my sibscest kink, but....

I wonder how intentional the Yale a cappella joke was, 'cause Yale's actually noted for good a cappella (the Whiffenpoofs -- I know this 'cause of the Smithenpoofs).

I find it interesting that Barney never does go to the Victoria's Secret yacht party.

"I never played team sports."
"Are playing I Never?  'Cause all that's left is peach schnapps."

Yes I enjoy the canon detail that Robin played single's tennis in high school.  And in contrast to my initial reaction to  2.04 "Ted Mosby, Architect" I find myself really sympathetic -- maybe because it's framed as self-centered [literal meaning, sans pejorative connotations] in a way that really resonates with me.
