  1. How I met your mother

    Thursday, December 27, 2012

    So I've been watching How I met your mother for the past couple of weeks. A lot of it. And I just wanted to write a post about my favorite scenes from it. But I like F.R.I.E.N.D.S more than How I met your mother. It will always be F.R.I.E.N.D.S > How I met your mother.
    Again, the numbers don't mean anything. They are just numbers. But the last one is my favorite. You should read the last one even if you don't read the others.

    1.Tick tick tick.. (Season 07 Episode 10)
    I still don't and I guess I'll never understand why I like the scenes where people get turned down. Of course they are madly in love and stuff but gets constantly turned down by each other. Huh, maybe my soul is black.
    This episode Barney and Robin agreed to break up with Nora and Kevin and meet at MacLaren's. Barney broke up with Nora and he was waiting for Robin. Then when Robin shows up, Barney smiles but his smile fades when Kevin comes in after her. Barney was confused and was like 'What?' and Robin just shakes her head 'no.' It was the longest minute of his life, I wanna say? Then time froze and he finished his drink went up to the gang and called it a night. Now, my favorite scene is when Ted goes home and he sees Barney in Robin's room. Picking up rose petals from Robin's bed and putting them into  a garbage bag.

    Blowing off the candles that he lit for her. You can tell how heart broken he was from this scene. Plus, Ted was watching. I guess the scene doesn't get any better than that.

    The womanizing, awesome Barnacle was hurt. But that was really sweet of him, you know. The writers did an amazing job and yeah, he is a great actor. The scene was very emotional and sad and great. Okay, something's seriously wrong with me. I shouldn't find other's misery beautiful. But it was one of my favorite scenes from all of the seasons. (I mean season 1-season 8, episode 12)

    2.The leap. (Season 04 Episode 24)
    Yes, it's the leap scene. The scene at the end of the episode.
    Marshall wanted to jump to the rooftop patio one building over from theirs for years. (To reach the hot tub) It was about six or seven feet  across? But he couldn't jump. But when Lilly ended the motivational speech she gave to Ted with "...and take the leap." Marshall then got off the couch and went to the rooftop and jumped. building. It.was.awesome.

     And the song playing at the background was so good. It was the perfect song for the scene. It goes kind of like 'wakao.wakaa.' Okay not like Shakira's. But it was a great scene. Everyone followed Marshall. That scene was a great scene for a season finale. How cool would it be if you get to jump from one building to the next? Sure, it would feel like you are a superhero, running to catch the bad guy.

    3.Ten sessions (Season 3 Episode 13)
    The 2 minute date with Stella. Oh Ted. Teddy. Ted. Ted. I hate Ted. Hate is a strong word so let me rephrase that. I don't like Ted. He is like a 10 year old boy who loves the princess from his class and then later cries when she turns her down. He is always like 'The one. the one. I want to get married. The one. the one.' All.the.damn.time. And he tries so hard.
    When Stella said the only free time she gets is the 2 minute lunch break he planned a 2 minute date for her. Who does that? A hopeless romantic.

    The date, he took a taxi to go to the next building. The waitress brought a salad instantly and then Eggplant Parmesan. Paid the check and took a taxi again to go to a movie in 15 seconds. (Of course the taxi driver was Ranjeet) There were 2 chairs waiting outside a what looked like an electronic store with 2 popcorn cups? Watched an edited-only-important-parts of Manos: Hands of fate. Then walked her to her clinic. On the way they stopped for coffee and dessert. Gave her a doggy bag and flowers. (But she was allergic to flowers.) So yeah, it was a really great date and Ted, the love sick puppy was really sweet and stuff. But the song (obviously) playing at the background was awesome. It was the song in the scene where Eric comes home from Africa and surprises Donna in That 70's show. So yeah, I instantly recognized the song and Oh god! That 70's show. I should watch it after I'm done with this post.

    4. No pressure (Season 7 Episode 17)
    This episode Robin told Ted that she doesn't love him like that and Ted said the agreement 'If we are both 40 and single', the backup plan was off. At the end of this episode Ted goes out of MacLaren's he was wearing a black umbrella because it was raining. Usually it's all black umbrellas and one yellow umbrella. But this time it was all yellow umbrellas and only his black umbrella. 'Because kids, when a door closes, well, you know the rest.' Yes, this scene is not that special or anything but I kind of like it. My favorite scenes are usually really small scenes. The ones which doesn't matter actually.  But there are huge scenes as well.

    5.Girls Vs Suits. (Season 5 Episode 12)

    The suit song, of course. "Nothing suits me like a suit" Great job with the suit song.The video was awesome and the lyrics were awesome. I want what Barney wants. Every guy to suit up. The world would be a better, handsome, uncomfortable (for most of the people) place.

    So, here's the lyrics of the song. (I just wanted to write the lyrics here. I really liked the song. It's pretty long. Scroll down if you don't want to read it. or sing it. Captain obvious strikes again.)
    I know what you’re thinking
    What’s Barney been drinking?
    That girl was smoking hot
    Yes I coulda nailed her
    But no it’s not a failure
    ‘Cuz there’s one thing she is not
    To score a ten would be just fine
    But I’d rather be dressed to the nines
    It’s a truth you can’t refute
    Nothing suits me like a suit
    Picture a world where all the girls and boys
    Are impeccably well dressed
    That delivery guy in the jacket and tie
    That puppy in the double-breast
    That ’80s dude in mutton chops
    That baby with a lollipop
    That lady cop who’s kinda cute
    Nothing suits ‘em like a suit
    Wingman I can wear
    They’re oh so debonair
    The perfect way to snare
    a girl with daddy issues
    In navy blue or black
    Check out this perfect rack
    I want to give them a squeeze
    Oh really? Then answer these questions
    If you please
    What would you do if you had to choose
    Between your suits and a pot of gold? Suits.
    What would you say
    If you gave your suits away
    In return you’d never grow old? Suits.
    What would you pick
    One million chicks
    Or a single three-piece suit? It’s moot.
    What if world peace
    Were within your reach … Abbadabada I’m gonna stop you right there. It’s suits. Come on, Lily. Get your head outta your ass.
    Two! Three! Four!
    Girls will go and girls will come
    But there’s only one absolute
    Every bro on the go needs to know
    That there’s no accepted substitute
    I’m sorry suits, let’s make amends
    My Sunday best are my best friends
    Send casual Friday down the laundry chute
    ‘Cuz nothing suits the undisputed oft-saluted suitor of repute
    Like a …. wait for it …
    Then again, she is pretty hot.

    6. The final page, part 2 (Season 8 Episode 12) (You should really read this whole thing. This proposal is awesome.)
    You must be mentally ill if you didn't like Barney's proposal. to Robin. It was well planned and legen..wait for it..dary. Legendary! So it was no shock when Robin said yes. I mean come on, even I would have said yes. Stinson set the stakes pretty high. Bad news for guys planning proposals.
    Robin went to the WWN roof because of Ted. and she loves Barney. When she got there she saw a romantically decorated but empty roof with a piece of parchment on the floor. She picks it up (It was a page from Barney's playbook and  it read :
    "The Robin"
    Step 1: Admit to yourself that you still have feelings for this girl.
    Step 2: Choose the completely wrong moment to make a drunken move after hanging out at a strip club and get shot down on purpose.
    Step 3:Agree that you two don't work, locking the door on any future that you could have together. Which will drive Robin nuts.
    Step 4: Robin goes nuts.
    Step 5: Find the person who annoys Robin the most in the world and ask for her help. Explain everything to Patrice and hope she agrees to help.
    Step 6: Check with your doctor about possible broken ribs.
    Step 7:Pretend to be dating Patrice.
    Step 8: Wait until Robin inevitably breaks into your place to find the playbook and show it to Patrice, which you'll monitor via the hidden cameras you have in your apartment.
    Step 9: After Patrice find the playbook, you have your first big fight.
    Step 10: Prove your loyalty to Patrice by burning the playbook, and actually burn it. You don't need it anymore.
    Step 11: Because your friends have no boundaries they will inevitably have an intervention for Robin, which you'll monitor via the hidden cameras in Lilly and Marshall's apartment.
    Step 12: Tell only Ted about your plan to propose to Patrice.
    Step 13: Wait and see if Ted tells Robin, and if he does it means your best bro in the world has let go of Robin and has given you his blessings.
    Step 14: Robin arrives at her favorite spot in the city and finds the secret final page of the Playbook. The last play you'll ever run.
    Step 15: Robin realizes she's standing underneath a mistletoe.

    Barney then steps out to confront her. Robin instead berates Barney for his trick and that trick could not bring them together. Barney then says "Turn it over"
    She turns it and it read "Step 16: Hope she says yes"

    Barney then kneels before her with a ring "Robin Scherbatsky..Will you marry me?"

    She says, "Yes." and it started snowing.
    Wow. The best scene of How I met your mother.
