* In "Unfinished", Marshall and Ted suspect Barney as "putting the moves on Ted", a la his flirting technique with women, in order to get Ted to work at the GNB.

*In “The Perfect Couple,” Marshal ends up in a friendship that looks a lot like dating with a guy named Brad. It’s played for laughs, but at the end of the episode Marshal is hurt when Brad gets back with his girlfriend, and Brad says he thinks Marshal’s in love with him. Later, Ted and Marshal run into Brad, and they act like awkward exes.

* "Arrivederci, Fiero" has Ted and Marshall remembering the "[=100K=] Fiasco" (althought Marshall insists it's the "Fiero-asco") when they had to cuddle together in a car to keep warm from a snowstorm that stranded them in the middle of the road. Marshall was talking about how he decided that one day he would marry Lily, and then...
-->'''Ted''': Marshall... Are you still thinking about Lily?
--> ''(Marshall nods)''
-->'''Ted''': Please, stop.



* "Three Day Rule" is packed with this. There was Ted's fantasy of Marshall and Barney cuddling together in cheerleader outfits, Marshall and Barney on the brink of sexting Ted while pretending to be a girl he likes, and later competing over who Ted would rather sleep with. Not to mention the HoYay generator Stan, who has such a good grasp of romantic language that Barney and Marshall nearly fall for him.
--> '''Marshall''': [stops arguing that he would blow Ted's mind in bed] Why do we keep trying to have sex with Ted?
--> '''Barney''': I don't know, it's weird.
* "Unfinished" is practically a Ted/Barney fanfic come true. Barney starts putting on the moves on Ted because he wants him to take a job, and Ted lets him because he enjoys the attention. There is even this piece of dialogue:
--> '''Ted''': Barney wants me to take the job so bad that he's putting the moves on me?
--> '''Marshall''': I ''hope'' that's his end game... Actually I don't, I like you two together!
** Lily says the same thing to Ted later.
** Ted finally agrees to the job... But only under the condition that Barney have dinner with him. The last shot of the ep is them enjoying a romantic meal together.
* Season 9 has Lily becoming crazy jealous after envisioning Robin with a new female best friend. The daydream ends right after Robin and her new BFF decide to have sex.
** Then, when she and Robin kiss to snap Barney out of his drunkenness, she is over it and Robin is all HoYay.
* Marshall's mistake when he didn't realize Scooter was Lily's high school boyfriend who was a lunch lady at her school and not a scooter for the lunch ladies.

* In "The Mermaid Theory", when pirate Marshall [[ItMakesSenseInContext starts to see cabin-boy Barney as a mermaid]]:
-->'''Marshall:''' Dude, We need to find land...



* In "Coming Back", we get one of the weirdest exchanges in the entire series:
--> '''Robin''': Do you mind if I [[ItMakesSenseInContext nibble on your brother's ding dong]]?
--> '''Barney''': How 'bout we nibble on my brother's ding dong ''together''?
* In "The Perfect Week", Ted slaps Barney's ass reassuringly before he goes to pick up a girl. YMMV, because it's more how a coach would slap a player's ass.
** And in "Say Cheese", Barney complains about Slash having grabbed his ass while they were taking a group picture, only for Marshall to interrupt and confess that it was actually him, because he thought Barney was Lily. They both cringe and leave it at that.
* Ted and Barney in season 7, when they both get sick of waiting for the right girl and very, very nearly ''have a child together'' (well, adopt, but still). They also plan out an entire HeterosexualLifePartners scenario where they just about draw the line at having three-ways together. This comes straight after a whole conversation wishing they were gay, and talking about how much sex they would have if they were. Of course, then a hot girl walks by and they're like, "Yeah, we're not gay."
* Ted's employee at Mosbius Design quits the job and breaks up with Robin at the same time. Before leaving, he brings in a bouquet of roses and a letter. He gives the letter to Robin and the roses (plus a heartfelt "I'll miss you") to Ted...
* Marshall [[SickeninglySweethearts baby talks]] to Ted on the phone, demonstrating separation anxiety for Kevin.
* Ted and Marshall participating in the Lamaze class without Lily.

* Barney suggests Robin have an open relationship where they can bring in other partners, only women, but "at least once with a male just to see what that's like."



** Not to mention that Barney admits he misses one-night stands so much that at some point he gets a "partial for Marshall."

* Barney got ''really'' close to Ted when grilling him about the laser tag party he thinks Robin's throwing for him. [[spoiler: Given the fact that Barney was actually planning an ice party for Robin and Ted was in on this secret, the "grilling" was quite unnecessary, other than just being for show.
