Happy “How I Met Your Mother Day!”
September 19, 2005: “Kids, I’m going to tell you an incredible story…the story of how I met your mother.”
It’s impossible to recap all the best parts from the series. Challenge: not accepted. However, how about a few favorite instances?
We all have our favorite Ted moments that made us laugh (“My parents live in Ohio, I live in the moment”), heartfelt gestures that were quintessential Ted Mosby (the 2-minute date and the blue French horn) and scenes that made us feel the other way (sitting on the bed reading a note from Stella). Plus, who can forget Robin Sparkles (and Alan Thicke!), Mustache Marshall and his perfect use of a marching band (Go Fighting Hens!), Barney’s playbook, suits and his countless one-way missions to Outer Space that always took off in the early morning before his date woke up, Lily’s book on tape (and “tantrum!”), MacLaren’s Pub and a bevy of hilarious guest stars and characters that made the show a must-see event each week for nine seasons (The Captain!).
And, of course, there’s Marvin-Wait For It-Eriksen!
It’s Ted & the Mother (stay tuned for the name tonight), Lily & Marshall and Barney & Robin.
Below is an interview where each of the main cast members revealed their favorite moments of the series. It seems fitting to hear what has stuck with them through all these years.
March 31, 2014: (Without seeing the series finale tonight) What did we learn? Not just that it was a great television show, but that How I Met Your Mother was (most importantly) an incredible story about friends who did a lot of crazy things, funny things, romantic things and surprising things that led them to great success, heartache and uncertainty. But, ultimately, each of them found a way to discover and get everything they ever wanted.
In the most perfectly imperfect way, this show was Legendary.
Stay tuned for the series finale of How I Met Your Mother tonight at 8:00 p.m. on CBS.
Happy Monday and Here’s to Your Own Incredible Story!
P.S. Remember that awesome HIMYM poem written on Jimmy’s Daily Planet that shall be read as one would from the era of Oliver Twist?
