A little cheesy…
Also, a little cheesy ~Robin
I’ll reserve my overall thoughts till my wrap-up at the end. Here is the rundown, enjoy.
- Play by Chop Chop (plays for show intro and closing)
- Portuguese Love Theme by Craig Armstrong (as many have noted, from the Movie Love Actually. Play during moments from the Wedding Bride)
- PM’s Love Theme by Craig Armstrong (again, from the Movie Love Actually. Plays when Ted goes after Royce and in the Wedding Bride Ending)
Moments of Awesomeness
- Loved the way the Wedding Bride Actors “slipped” in Ted’s name instead of Jed Mosley. Ok, he definitely said it that time ~Ted
- Judy Greer (Royce) was excellent. And she was on Big Bang Theory just last week. I remember her from a short lived series called Love Monkey with Tom Cavanaugh…oh well, too bad she ended up with baggage.
- Didn’t they use that same helping people move or robbing their apartment bit in Murtaug?
- Major Baggage. Such a fun game.
- Break Dancing Marshall. One of my top HIMYM moments ever… also reminded me of Seinfeld when Kramer walked down the street in the Technicolor dream coat, I digress.
- Barney, while being absent from a good part of the episode, was seeing the Wedding Bride again.
- the Red Boots in the Weddings Bride. GCWOK approved, plus..pulling. them. off.
- Baggage. Did anyone catch those? Some of my favorites: Cubs Fan, Elvis is Alive, Slept With Barney, Tri-Polar, Still thinks his ska band is going to take off…I counted 3 of the Slept with Barney bags. How Funny.
- Barney’s moments were hilarious.
Uncle Barney didn’t say kiss…Still not saying Kiss ~Old Ted
Underprivileged child that Tony teaches for free: Go give love a roundhouse kick, right in the heart.
Marshall: Hey, if you know what you’re doing two minutes is all you need.
Robin: I read that Kim Jong Il said it was his second favorite movie of all time, right behind him riding a horse in slow motion through a field of turnips.
Lily: His high school mascot was a hug.
Royce: …a barber, a stripper, and a ju…leiard trained violinist walk into a bar…
Marshall: Crime Free? In 1994, the cashier from the feed store was held up at hoe point..
Marshall: Are you sure it was about you because when I saw Spaceballs for the first time I could have sworn…
Ted makes Royce the pancakes he promised. Then finds out about her HUGE baggage!
First off, no way Chris Katan would be in the 5th highest grossing movie of all time. Secondly, everyone does have baggage, whether you see it or not. True Story. And thirdly (?), let me just say that my first impression of the episode was not the same as it is now. Keep in mind though I’ve watched it 3 more times though.
I, like Robin, feel that a lot of Ted’s moments are pretty cheesy. The theater scene between Royce, Ted, Pancakes and Barney chanting something besides “Kiss Him” fell pretty cheesy. But honestly I loved moment of everything.
The Wedding bride movie was definitely done over the top. And in a good way. I loved CBS’s tweet/facebook question “What if they made a movie about your life and made you the bad guy?!”. Makes me wonder if this is all of the movie, Stella and Tony we will see or not. I mean they seemed to put a lot into it for a one off ep. And considering no mention of Don, Babies, Ted’s house or anything else that would firmly place this in a HIMYM time line, I doubt it’s more than that.
Not a lot of Barney lately but what we get from his is always gold. Marshall in my opinion really carries the show in the supporting actor range. If you haven’t noticed most of the Legendary Lines I like are or concern Marshall. I dunno why.
I love watching these characters and do think a lot of things haven’t changed since Season 1, but overall I really don’t think this is the same show. A story now seems to be told differently from then. There is just a new feel about it. Stories like the Wedding Bride seem so rushed unfortunately, whereas a S1 or S2 ep might have more of a laid back feel to it. I’m not saying this is a good or bad think, but it’s something I have noticed lately. I see a lot of fans on twitter who really don’t like the evolution of the show over time. From where I sit though, it’s not my creation… only something I get to sit and enjoy. And as long am I’m laughing I will keep doing that.
ps… I hate the phrase “No can do’sville baby doll”…it may be an iconic phrase for the Wedding Bride but I hope it doesn’t catch on.
Past that, what did everyone else think of the episode? And What did you think of the Wedding bride movie?
Does anyone know the song playing when Ted and Royce exits the theater?
Who the “kiss” are you? HAHA classic!
But that the thing with the goat was in the movie is kind of impossible. How would Stella or Tony even know that? That happened after Stella came back in “As Fast As She Can”. That’s a little error there.
Otherwise, loved it! That reminds again why this is the funniest show on TV!
I’m working on it. I’ll post here and on the music page once I find the song.
How does the joke with the barber, the stripper and the violinist end??
lilly and robin need to stop hating on marshall for being MINNESOTA NICE.
I’m not really sure it’s an actual joke
it was Play by Chop Chop (that’s an iTunes link btw)
I know! I was thinking that too while watching the episode. I still loved it though, it was really funny.
Just wondering if anyone knows name of song that plays in background right after movie finishes?
Thanks in advance
Loved the episode, but was abit disappointed with the re-return ending. Thought that Ted running after her and making the “pancake speech” was very Mosby, and the girl seemed sweet, so was disappointed that they dumped all that baggage on her. Seriously, she doesn’t have to be the mum, but Ted hasn’t date anyone for longer then an episode in quite a while….
I also think that a few more moments that would lead up to the mum might be nice, maybe something in the season finale, they don’t have to show her or say who see is, but just bring us a step closer…
I’d like to know what’s the song in the scene just after that robin, lilly and barney are watching the movie, when we see the bridge in the night and wee see everyone with royce in the bar ??
thanks in advance
As cheesy and rushed as the episode definitely was, it had its good points. The Barnacle is just so awesome. NPH FTW Who the kiss are you?
And I think this episode does have something to do with the mother, just not directly. See if Ted never got over/learned to confront his baggage, then he might have never been ready for a relationship with the mother.
Anyone else see NPH in Glee? While his role was brief, his duet and part singing “Dream On” was fantastic. I kept saying, there’s no way they’re gonna hit the high parts, and was shocked when they actually did. It was Legen…wait for it…dary!
Hey did anyone else notice how in the end with the ‘luggage’ some fat chicks had ‘slept with barney’ as theirs…i mean it was funny…but did anyone else remember how barney has never, and will never sleep with a fat chick…
…it dissappointed me…but still a good episode.
Yes! Haha, I was so excited he was going to be on… He did a really good job, I was wondering if he would be on another episode!
maybe they are fat now… seeing as girls seems to loose a lot of self respect after Barney…
I guess I could believe that, it is quite a stretch[if you saw them]. But at least it’s somthing to think about… haha thanks.
what is the name of the song playing when ted and royce carry the bad at the end?
“Play” by Chop Chop….but I couldn’t find much about it online, goodluck!
is it that hard to look at the other comments, or in the main post… or on the music page? Come on.
Anyone knows the song playing when we see the bridge in the night, just before ted and royce talk abound the film with another couple (13 or 14 min after the begining of the show) ?
HI, i really like to know this too!
it sound like T-Pain. But i’ve never heard a song like this from him.
In the baggage scene, there’s a woman who has a baggage that reads “only dates guys in a band”. She accidentally bumbs into that previously mentioned “still thinks his ska band is going to take off” guy. They apologise each other and continue to different directions. Brilliant script writing.
The Barnicle wasn’t in this episode very much, but I loved his lines. Like “he got everything right. Even the thing with the numchucks” and one of my favorite lines from Barndoor, “who the kiss are you?”
OMG.. have you guys found this song yet??? It’s been 4 years since you guys wrote. Please tell me someone has gotten this sound name??
