Despite the fact that HIMYM is a comedy, there are also parts where they invite you to reflect. In addition, this group of friends of almost thirty years makes viewers feel identified. Because the series deals with themes of love, friendship, and weddings. Also professional development, parenting, and divorce.
Through nine seasons, the main characters managed to conquer the audience. We are talking about Barney, Ted, Robin, Lily, and Marshall. Also, the main thread of the story is how Ted met the mother of his children. On the other hand, other threads are Barney’s lack of maturity. Robin’s assertiveness of independent successful woman. Even Lily and Marshall’s solid relationship. All these and more are some stories that we will always be happy to see again.
Apart from the interesting stories, HIMYM left us some lines. Each one of them invites us to reflect and think a little about life. Here are some of them.
Ted – HIMYM
Ted is considered a hopeless romantic. He is constantly in search of love. For this reason, he has said phrases such as: “Sometimes hours can seem like minutes, and sometimes a single second can last a lifetime.” Also, “We are going to grow old, whether we like it or not, the only question is whether we are going to get on with our lives, or cling to the past.” Without a doubt, both phrases make us think about life. Even in how time passes and how necessary it is to move forward without looking back.
All this in order to never stop looking for moments that will make you happy. But at the same time, they are worth remembering and enjoying them. On the other hand, there are other phrases of Ted in HIMYM that are well known. For example, “There are two great days in any love story. The day you meet the girl of your dreams and the day you marry her”. “Even if you know how something is going to end it doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the ride.”
However, the best known of all is: “Guys, never underestimate the power of destiny. Because when you least expect it, the smallest detail can have a knock-on effect. And this can change the course of your life”.
Without a doubt, Robin is the mirror that any woman would like to have. An independent person with a professional career. Also confident and really attractive. She has said phrases like, “If you give up on people quickly, you are missing out on something really great.” This is considered one of the most prominent in HIMYM.
But, the most popular phrase is the one she said to Ted during a scene that no one will be able to forget. “The future is scary, but you can’t go back in time just because it’s familiar. Although it is very tempting. “In fact, Robin was always shown as a brave woman who did not fear anything. She always looked ahead and made the best decisions every moment.
Barney – HIMYM
Barney Stinson is a fun, controversial, and uncomplicated person. However, he is an excellent friend and anyone would like to meet him. This actor always tries to give an image that does not project any concern. But the truth is that some of his phrases have managed to make many people reflect. For example: “I realized that I am searching, searching for what I really want in life. And you know what? I have absolutely no idea what it is.”
Also, “Sometimes we look for one thing, but we discover another.” And, as if that weren’t enough, a person like Barney would also say typical phrases of someone like him. “God, it’s me, Barney. What happens? I know we don’t talk, but I know a lot of girls who scream your name because of me.”
Marshall y Lily
Always, in each group of friends, there is a couple who have been together for a long time. That couple that shows that love exists forever. In HIMYM’s case, it’s Marshall and Lily. In fact, when they are both together, they are great. But when they are apart they are also wonderful people. During the series, Lily has said really inspiring phrases that invite us to reflect. For example, “We fight hard to hold onto things that we know are going to go away in time. And that is very noble”.
On the other hand, we cannot forget either: “Look, you can’t design your life as a building. It doesn’t work that way. You just have to live it… and it will design itself ”. Or “It’s just that in time we’re all going to move on. It’s called growing up”.
In Marshall’s list of phrases we have: “This is life, you know, we never end where we thought we would end.” This couple had their good and bad moments like life itself. However, he tells us that the path is always made by walking. Therefore, you have to accept all the ups and downs without any problem.
Interesting facts that you surely did not know about HIMYM
Barney Nothing Suits Me Like a Suit is one of HIMYM’s most memorable moments. For this, each character has its own number. But not Lily. Ted’s number is Super Date in the episode ‘Of Course’. Also, Robin has some numbers. For example, the hilarious Mashall vs. The Machines. However, Lily does not have one because the actress does not like to sing.
Victoria was going to be a mom – HIMYM
If HIMYM couldn’t have more than two seasons, the writers already had an ending ready for this one. Therefore, they had decided that Victoria was to be the mother. The show was even going to end at Claudia and Stuart’s wedding. All this while Ted said: This is how I met your mother. However, the series was a total success. For this reason, we were all able to enjoy 9 amazing seasons.
Without a doubt, the death of Marshall’s pope is one of the saddest scenes in HIMYM. Because Jason Segel did not know what the outcome of the Bad News episode was. Therefore, when Alyson Hannigan tells him that his father died, the reaction was genuine. For this reason, it was impromptu, devastating, and touched our hearts.
