* In "Unpause," Ted and Robin get Barney to the level of drunkenness where he can't lie. They ask him to finally tell them what his job is. Whenever they asked him before he always answered with just "Please." It turns out that '''is''' his job! "Please" is a FunWithAcronyms for [[spoiler: Provide Legal Exculpation and Sign Everything. It's a job where he spends all day signing papers claiming responsibility for the illegal activities of a corporation. He was hired in 1998 by Greg, a CorruptCorporateExecutive who was also the slick asshole who stole Barney's girlfriend back when he was a hippie. After Barney had his EvilMakeover the guy didn't recognize him. Ted and Robin are alarmed by this and tell Barney he could get in trouble but he lets them in on his "master plan". Future Ted tells his kids that two months after his wedding, Barney went to his boss' office and reveals that the 16 years he spent working there was all part of his BestServedCold revenge against him for stealing his girlfriend and that he's been working with the Feds giving them evidence]].
-->'''Barney:''' I just wanted to let you know that I've been [[spoiler:informing on you to the Feds and they're on their way to arrest you]].
-->'''Greg:''' What?! Why?!
-->'''Barney:''' Oh, countless moral reasons...could have applied, but [[spoiler:this is pretty much revenge for you stealing my girlfriend. When that happened, I promised myself I would find you, gain your trust, and take you down]].
-->'''Grey:''' Who are you?!
-->'''Barney:''' Me? I'm nobody. [[spoiler:Just a guy who sold you coffee once. [''The FBI arrives, while ''Barney Stinson: That Guy's Awesome'' starts playing''] Peace out, hombre]]!

* At the end of "The Scorpion and the Toad", Lily asks Marshall if she can do anything to make it up to him for leaving him in grave depression over the summer. At his request, she goes to MacLaren's and slaughters Barney with a drink, claiming he gave her chlamydia. She then returns in a hat and does it again, scaring off his dates of twins.

* In ''Change of Heart'' Lily slaps Barney several times. Pretty standard. After finding out about him lying to sleep with Nora however she slugs him. Not slaps, a full on punch that sends him into cardiac arrest.

* When Lily tells Marshall that accepting the judgeship without telling her is more selfish than anything she ever did, he finally snaps and calls her out about her leaving to San Francisco in the first season. That speech has been ''eight years'' in the making, and for some it was worth waiting every second just to see him finally call Lily out on her selfish behavior and hypocrisy.

* Barney gets major credit ([[RunningGag *salutes* Major Credit]]) for managing to recap ''seven years'' worth of relationship drama in 50 seconds. Keep in mind that Barney is extremely ADHD, and he got distracted and went off chasing little white rabbits several times during that spiel. And he ''still'' finished with two seconds to spare, which he used to mention his stint on ThePriceIsRight.

** Details: feeling that only he can properly plan his own bachelor party, gives Ted and Marshall a list of requirements they must fulfill. Which they let ''Robin'' do, as she calls in a number of favors (most importantly by TheKarateKid himself), but, since, as Barney admits, his "average night is like an average guy's bachelor party", she sets it up so that Barney thinks it's the worst night of his life, making it unforgettable.

** Lily recounts her teenage years when the others brag about how hardcore they were: a goth BadAss carrying a [[BatterUp baseball bat]] who took in geeks and forced them to [[TookALevelInBadass take a level in badass]] while beating cops and when she walked down the street everybody ran. Hers was the only story to be true and as an adult walking down the same street everyone remembers her and bolts. Meanwhile, the gang looks bemused as it dawns on them that Lily wasn't bullshitting.
