Comedy of the Week: Barney-isms


I'd say it's pretty undeniable that the breakout star of CBS's How I Met Your Mother is Neil Patrick Harris.


His portrayal of the womanizing, often conscience-free Barney Stinson is pitch-perfect. Because of this, many of the show's best lines and catch phrases have come from Barney.


Here's a sampling:


Catch-Phrases

-"Suit Up!"

Or: "Snowsuit Up!"

Or: "Flightsuit Up!"


-"Haaaaave you met Ted?"


-"It's gonna be legen... wait for it... dary!"

And a variation: "It's gonna be legend-... wait for it... and I hope you're not lactose intolerant because the second half of that word is DAIRY!"

And another: "Ted, tonight we're gonna go out. We're gonna meet some ladies, it's gonna be *legendary*. Phone-five!

[slaps cell-phone]"


-"What's that? Self five? Nice! We out!"


Quotes

-"There are only two reasons to date a girl you've already dated: breast implants."


-"Wow, Jackie, you make a really great first impression. I have a feeling that tonight you might end up being Jackie [with ecstasy] ohhhh."


-"Barney: If that guy can get a 9, I can get a 16.

Ted: What's a 16?

Barney: Those two 8s over there. "


-"The only reason to wait a month for sex is if she's 17 years, 11 months old."


-"It's quid pro bro."


-"If there was any shame in a dude getting a pedicure I don't think there would've been a feature about it in Details magazine."


-"Here it is: Acrobats from Montreal, they're super flexible. We are gonna get Cirque-du-So-laid. What uppppp?"


-"The World is going to come to an end tonight. Yes think about it. End of the World, Nostradamus, Notre Dame, Fighting Irish, Irish, St. Patrick's Day. This is it Bro. Bro-pacalypse Now... Bro-Mageddon."


-"You know, if you re-edit there's a tampon commercial in here somwhere."


I could probably go on forever, but why don't you share some of your favorites instead!

i think that the thing that just adds to his portrayal is the fact that he's actually gay

The Platinum Rule... far too true. Literally step-by-step accurate for me!
