Did You Know?


Before co-starring in the show, Josh Radnor and Neil Patrick Harris appeared in a stage production of John Robin Baitz' play "The Paris Letter" in 2004, in which they played lovers, each walking onto the stage fully nude.


Ted: I'm gonna do what that guy couldn't, I'm gonna take the plunge... Well, I guess that's not a perfect metaphor since... for me it's falling in love and for him it's... death.
Barney: Actually, that is a perfect metaphor.


When Lily is approached by the girl that's been sabotaging Barney while he's trying to pick up girls, the girl's hair is wavy/curly - and her voice definitely not Britney Spears. Later we find out that the girl who talked to Lily was Abby, Britney's character, and the scene is shown again - this time with the actual Britney in it, straight hair and all.
