Air Date: February 12th 2007.
Barney: I've ridden the subway twice, end to end. I've seen where it turns around. Ted, you don't ever wanna see where the subway turns around
Ted: Barney will do anything to win a bet. Remember that time he bet me that Men at Work sang "Hungry Like the Wolf"? And when he found out that they didn't, he tried to hire them to.
Barney: Here's how you run a marathon. Step 1: You start running. There is no step 2.
Marshall: All that work I put in training for the marathon was a total waste.
Barney: Training for a marathon?
Barney: You don't train for a marathon, you just run it.
Ted: It's down to three people, and I know they need to make their decision today. I sort of feel like my not showing up might put me in a disadvantage.
Robin: That security guard was a little bit handy.
Ted: That's funny, she barely touched me.
Ted: A 67-year-old penny. Do you realize this penny was minted during World War II?
Robin: So was my grandfather, that doesn't make him interesting.
Ted: Would it help if I got on and give an impassioned speech about my destiny?
Flight Gate Attendant: I think it might hurt.
