The Pre-Nup – Season 8 Episode 2

 

How I Met Your Mother Music

…Let’s take tonight a couple at a time, shall we?

 

Marshall & Lily. Again, Marshall is the funnies overall on the show… Lily is a nympho. The jokes really never seem to get old there… especially when they pull out the “honka, honka” talk. Plus we know they are solid and not going anywhere. I’m not all about the baby, but it’s great to watch.

The rest of this will be tough because we all know we are talking about doomed relationships…

Barney & Quinn. I was kinda bummed by how quickly they were done. And to be honest, they were not my first guess as the couple to go, though looking back it may be the obvious choice.  The fact that not trusting each other just now comes up… or maybe it had before, just not that directly… really caught me off guard. Good writing. And on another note, whether you liked Becky Newton’s character or not, she is gorgeous. Will this be the last we see of Quinn? I find it hard to believe that anyone else could enter the picture..and we know that Barney & Robin are moving together… though we have no idea where it ends. I’d love to see her back, even briefly.

Nick & Robin. Talk about quick moving… We really have to remind ourselves that most of this relationship has taken place off screen or when there were no good stories to tell. I feel like it will get it’s day in the sun though… and that may be the bulk of an episode that ends with the end of the relationship. Still Nick in the bar talking with all the guys felt good overall. Not out of place or rushed…. unless you rally don’t get the whole passage of time thing. Overall, I like and Robin together and I’m interested to see where it goes.

Ted & Victoria. and I guess Klaus at the moment. And just how awkward will that be? Is it a possible recipe for break up? Ted & Victoria are just kinda there tonight… especially in the comedy department… Klaus though, funny guy. I may be missing some of the German jokes though. And yes, I though for sure they would end first. It’s not often I admit that I’m wrong so mark it.

If you are looking for story over comedy then last week was all for you… Now please don’t think I’m saying that Farhampton was bad… it just wasn’t as funny as tonight. Either way, I enjoyed both but for different reasons. Tonight, it was just time for a good laugh.

Legendary Lines

Barney: First of all, if you have an onion be gel, you don’t need scallion creme cheese

Quinn: What woman want’s her breast squeezed like a seal horn.

Future Ted: The next day one of these four couples broke up!….. Okay it wasn’t lily and marshall….

Nick:… oh I’m sorry, I didn’t realize it takes 42″ to keep you satisfied

Lily: Marshall you thought a ghost made your toast this morning
Marshall: YOU DIDN’T PUT THE BREAD IN I DIDN’T PUT THE BREAD IN!

Author: I’m just getting back in the game… the red with the baby, whats the situation?

Klaus: This is a popular German situational comedy–one is very neat, the other very very neat  (hooray for German jokes)

Moments of Awesomeness

  • Summer of Love and no good stories, how often do you think the kids have wished for that?
  • Snap, Crackle, Pop… Lily’s lady parts
  • I like Robin’s boyfriend, Nick, at the table.
  • That shock ring seems painful… let’s never speak of it again.
  • Hero Ted.
  • Ferret bite on the eyelid… how great. Is that really how they kiss?
  • It’s nice to see tugboat and Author reunited.

 

New Jersey (What was Bad)

  • Too many laughs for me to right down. True Story… It’s not really bad.. just makes me miss a lot.
  • Maybe it’s not a that New Jersey… but should the second episode of the sea on be better than the Season Premier?
  • Quick Relationships. In the tradition of a relationship that

The Re-Return (The moment after the show is over when they come back for a quick laugh moment)

  • Klaus, Victoria & Ted on the couch enjoying “Strange Compatriots” the German Situational Comedy… the line from Ted, is he comparing it How I Met Your Mother? I think so.

 

Lingering Questions

  • One couple down, will this be the last we see of Quinn? Did it happen to fast?
  • Which couple is next in the “Autumn of Break Ups”?
  • This may be a bad idea but what would you change (pre-nup) style?
  • What did you think of The Pre-Nup?

Finally, Don’t forget that HIMYM Season 7 comes out on DVD tomorrow (or today… possibly in the past when you are reading this… time travel right?)
