It's the year 2030 and an older Ted Mosby is telling the story to his son and daughter about how he met and will eventually marry their mother. This is where we meet for the first time Ted, Lily Marshall, Barney and Robin.
In Brooklyn, Marshall Eriksen, a terribly insecure, sissy but sweet law student, pops the question to his assertive girlfriend Lily Aldrin, in an inadvertently explosive way (with champagne). This makes their year long cahoot, Ted Mosby, anxious that he may be left all alone. His overbearing 'other best friend', Barney Stinson, forces Ted to play a 'pick-up' game in the bar where he has decided to hunt for Lebanese girls. To both their surprise, Ted actually meets a suitable girlfriend, TV reporter Robin. As soon as he sees her on TV, Ted rushes to her apartment (with five dogs) to declare his love - while the others wait in Bangladeshi Rajit's cab- which startles her.
Older Ted: [about seeing Robin for the first time] It was like something out of an old movie. Where the sailor sees the girl across the crowded dance floor and turns to his buddy, and says, "See that girl? I'm gonna marry her someday."
Ted: Hey, Barney. See that girl?
Barney: Oh, yeah, you know she likes it dirty.
Ted真是个情感细腻的暖男，但我还是喜欢Barney贱贱的嘴脸>_< 这里Ted想象中的画面挺美的，可以学来勾搭妹子，但是肯定没有Barney那个Have you met Ted有效率。
Ted: So, you're a reporter?
Robin: Sorta, I do those fluff stories at the end of the show, like... Monkey can play a ukulele. I'm hoping for some bigger stories.
Ted: Bigger... like, a Gorilla with an upright bass? Sorry, you're very pretty.
fluff A light fiction which is usually just a day-in-the-life piece that is cute and humorous.
Barney: Ted, do you remember what I told you the day we met?
[flashback to the same bar, where a younger, goatee-wearing Ted sits in a booth. Barney drops down next to him]
Barney: Ted, I am gonna teach you how to live.
[Ted stares at him]
Ted: Barney. We met at the urinal.
Barney: Oh, right.
Barney: Lesson one, lose the goatee. It doesn't go with your suit.
Ted: I don't have a suit.
Barney: Lesson two, get a suit. Suits are cool. Exibit A.
[motions to his own suit, then winks to a girl off camera]
Barney: Lesson three, don't even think about getting married 'til you're 30.
[back in the present]
Ted: Thirty. Right, you're right.
Goatee 山羊胡 lose the goatee
It doesn't go with...它跟……不搭
Exihit A. 这句可以拿来装13了。比如X大多丑男，Exihit A+自嘲脸。
Ted: You know what? I'm done being single, I'm not good at it. Look, obviously you can't tell a woman you just met that you love her, but it sucks that you can't. I'll tell you something though, if a woman, not you, just some hypothetical woman, were to bear with me through all this, I think I'd make a damn good husband, because that's the stuff I'd be good at. Stuff like making her laugh and being a good father and walking her five hypothetical dogs. Being a good kisser...
Robin: Everyone thinks they're a good kisser.
Ted: Oh, I've got references.
推荐信 the letter of recommendation
Older Ted: Kids, I'm gonna tell you an incredible story. The story of how I met your mother.
Son: Are we being punished for something.
Older Ted: No.
Daughter: Yeah, is this gonna take awhile?
Older Ted: Yes.
being punished for sth. 比如最近极限挑战里被孙红蕾问自己和黄渤那个更好看的姑娘就可以说Am I being punished for something?
Marshall Eriksen: Huh. The guy didn't jump.
Ted: I'm gonna go kiss her. Right now.
Marshall Eriksen: Dude, it's midnight. As your future lawyer, I'm gonna advise you, that's freaking crazy.
Ted: I never do anything crazy! I'm always waiting for the moment, planning the moment. Well, she's leaving tomorrow, and this may be the only moment I'm gonna get! I'm gonna do what that guy couldn't, I'm gonna take the leap!... Okay, not a perfext metaphor. 'Cause for me it's falling in love and getting married, and for him it's... death.
Barney: Actually, that is a perfect metaphor.
Ted: If the bottom bunk moves, the top bunk moves too.
