HIMYM 3.03 "Third Wheel" [2007-10-08]

Watching in realtime, rock on! (Though realtime doesn't have Pause. Who knew?)

I enjoyed Marshall and Barney's British Wimbledon Wii.

Marshall: "I need the freedom and mobility that only underwear can provide."
Jason Segel pantless really is a running gag, huh? ("In my plan, we are beltless.")

Ted: "Oh my god, oh my god, "
Barney: "Use your words, Ted."

I enjoyed the return of Trudy -- and the allusion to, though not explanation of, the pineapple.

Trudy: "I left my underwear."
Ted: "Those were yours? I thought they felt kinda tight. Kidding! I don't wear underwear -- ladies' underwear -- often."

Love Barney and his "resplendent" belt (and crown). "I never kid."

I'm somewhat disturbed by the implication that two women is inherently frightening/intimidating/whatever.

Lily: "She should be punished, not rewarded."
Ted: "Fine, then I'll try to work in a little light spanking."

Love Ted torturing Barney by refusing to tell him whether he did it or not. And am very impressed that he (Ted) is so deadpan straight-faced throughout.

Am a little annoyed with Robin's idiocy re: needing to shave. Adore Barney's nonchalant metaphor about how guys don't care.
