** Punchy, despite only being in four episodes, has a decent following. "Classic Schmosby!" is basically a MemeticMutation at this point.

** When Lily is pregnant, Lily likes Doctor Sonya who always gives permission to have "just a little bit" of everything. Marshall is concerned about whether they're getting the right advice and feels her attitude is too casual (it's true that there are myths around pregnancy and in some cases people can overreact in terms of how much they restrict themselves). Ted even does some research which, whether right or not, claims some of her advice is incorrect. The episode then turns into a debate over how much Ted is involved in their lives with Lily not even showing up to a birthing class because Ted's there and Marshall learning the lesson that what's really important is what makes Lily comfortable. So if she likes Doctor Sonya, that's what counts. The fact that he was genuinely concerned whether what they were doing was actually going to be best for the health of their child was completely ignored.

*** On the other hand, the single biggest obstacle to them being together has always been portrayed as them wanting different things out of life: Ted wanting to settle down and have kids, Robin not liking kids and wanting an international news career. At the beginning of the series, being with each other would be a major obstacle to one or the other getting what they want, but by the time of the finale, that's not true anymore. Let's start with Ted: At this point, marrying Robin won't stand in the way of him being a dad and raising a family, because he's already done that. Then Robin: First, a typical career path for a person who's very successful in her field -- take, for example, the also-Canadian Peter Jennings -- often involves spending the early part of your career bouncing around the world to different assignments, before eventually landing a stable gig that still involves traveling from time to time, but is probably based in New York or Washington. Second, Ted's kids are teenagers. As much as they like her, they don't need her to be their mom, and they're old enough to be pretty self-sufficient. She didn't have to burp them, change their diapers, shuttle them to soccer practice, or vacuum Cheerios out of her back seat; she gets the benefits of ''having had'' kids without any of the grossness or inconvenience of actually raising them herself.

*** As suggested InUniverse, did she came back from San Francisco because she realized she made a mistake or did she just settle for Marshall after failing to make it as an artist?

** Barney put some hidden cameras around his apartment for "other purposes" which Robin finds it creepy. Then, came in ''Film/GoneGirl'' where NPH's character also had cameras installed in his house for security purposes which can be as counted creepy when he brought in Amy (played by Creator/RosemundPike) who pretended that she ran away from her husband (played by Creator/BenAffleck). She used this to tarnish him as a stalker ex-boyfriend [[spoiler:by pretending that she's abused by him on-camera and later killing him "in self-defense" while having sex before going back to her husband in the film's climax]].
