Lily: (Speaking in a British accent) It was sophisticated.

Ted: (Talking about the planned intervention for him) What was it for? The Crocs? The hair product?
Marshall: Not Stella.
Ted: Oh, my God, this was about Stella.
Marshall: I just said, "not Stella," so maybe it was about your poor listening skills, Ted.
Ted: What?
Marshall: It's out of control, see?

Ted: Lily, come on, let's hear yours.
Lily: "Gilbert's reading skills have improved drastically since..." Wait, this is a letter I meant to send home with one of my kindergärtners.
*Cuts to other apartment*

Ted: Robin, could I hear yours?
Robin: "Dear Ted, it's 'encyclo-pee-dia', not 'encyclo-pay-dia'. Why do you always say things in the most pretentious way possible? It makes you sound douchey - and that's 'douch-ey', not 'douch-ay'."
Ted: Yeah, you already read that one at my pronunciation intervention. Where's the letter about Stella?
Robin: I didn't write one. I'm your ex-girlfriend. I figured anything I said on the subject would sound catty. Plus, I'm hotter than her, so who cares?

"Old Barney": What about the old sand pit?
Lily: Let it go.
"Old Barney": "Let It Snow"? I love that old ditty!
Ted: I'm getting my flail.
"Old Barney": You're setting sail?
