** Gus's improvised rap to bail Marshall out of finding a rhyme for "Canada". Creator/LinManuelMiranda gets to showcase his fantastic rap skills, and in-universe, it's a pretty impressive verse for him taking it off the top of his head.

** To elaborate: Marshal and Lily are afraid that all their old traditions, the things that made them special as a couple, are falling by the wayside, there lunchtime calls to say "I love you", telling each other all the things they had to eat that day when they got home, kissing on New Years as the ball drops, and when one of them goes out of town bringing back beer from the place they where visiting, the other coming to greet them at the airport with a chauffeur's hat and a sign with their name on it. When Lily is coming back from Seattle, Marshall spends most of the episode agonizing about weather to go to the airport or not and greet her with the hat and sign. Finally he goes, only to discover her flight was delayed, and she called him at lunchtime to tell him, but he didn't pick up. He then thinks that this was a sign from the universe, and resolves not to go. Lily arrives three days later, and realizes she wants to continue their tradition after all, so she rushes out to grab Seattle beer from the nearest liqueur store and back to the airport where she waits for Marshal hoping he would have the same faith. He's not there however, so she sits down at a nearby bench, ready to cry...[[GrandRomanitcGesture only for the man next to her to start playing his flute, triggering people to stand up all over the airport playing trumpets, horns, and drums, followed by Marshal walking in, hat, cardboard sign and all, walking straight for Lily.]]
--> Marshal: "A muffin, as pastrami sandwich, and a bag of chips and I know it's way past lunchtime but I love you. More and more each day I love you Lily. [[ReunionKiss Happy New Years.]]" ''[They kiss]''

** Finally, Marshall goes to meet The Calligrapher (Ted), who then teaches Marshall to be accurate… wr at least, he would have, if Marshall wasn't so immensely strong he ''slapped The Calligrapher's heart out of his body.'' Except… when a heart is slapped out of somebody's body, they stay alive for ten minutes, which allows Marshall to master The Slap Of A Million Burning Suns.

** That entire episode is a giant CrowningMomentOfAwesome for Ted. For context - Ted gets a girl's number at the bar, and Barney and Marshall tell him that he should wait 3 days before calling because 'that's the rule'. Ted figures that texting doesn't count, and soon he ends up having rather naughty and deep text message conversations with this girl all night. [[spoiler:It turns out it's Marshall and Barney playing a prank, having replaced the girls' number with Barney's to bust Ted for calling too soon, but decides to mess with him with texts instead. When Ted finds out, he plans the most epic revenge ever seen on a sitcom - he texts "Holly" that he sometimes has gay dreams about his Best Friend, causing Marshall and Barney to argue over who is the hottest. He then shows up at the bar and says he had an 'odd dream', and they want him to talk about it to find out who he was dreaming about - and he then proceeds to [[CrowningMomentOfFunny "waste half an hour of those bastards' lives"]] telling them an incredibly nerdy and annoying bullshit dream about having dinner with famous historical architects, exposes them as pranksters and introduce them to to Holly whom he had contacted at work, thus simultaneously getting his revenge on the guys AND proving that the 3-day rule is bunk! ...that is, until we realize the girl is a complete nutjob, but hey!]]
