Why am I freaking out all of the sudden? This is crazy. I'm not ready to settle down.
How does Carl land a Lebanese girl?
The plan's always been don't even think about it until you're 30.
Exactly. The guy doesn't even own a suit.
Plus, Marshall's found the love of his life. Even if I was ready, which I'm not, but if I was, it's like, 'Okay, I'm ready. Where is she?'
And there she was. It was like something from an old movie where the sailor sees the girl across the crowded dance floor, turns to his buddy and says, 'See that girl? I'm gonna marry her someday.'
Hey, Barney, see that girl?
Oh, yeah. You just know she likes it dirty. Go say hi.
I can't just go say hi. I need a plan. I'm gonna wait until she goes to the bathroom, then I'll strategically place myself by the jukebox so that...
Hi, have you met Ted? Hi.
Let me guess. Ted.
So what do you do?
I'm a reporter for Metro News 1.
Well, kind of a reporter. I do those dumb little fluff pieces at the end of the news. You know, like, 'Monkey who can play the ukulele.' But I'm hoping to get some bigger stories soon.
Bigger, like, 'Gorilla with an upright bass?' Sorry. You're really pretty.
Oh, your friends don't seem too happy.
Yeah. See, the one in the middle just got dumped by her boyfriend. So tonight, every guy is 'the enemy.'
You know, if it'll make your friend feel better you could throw a drink in my face. I don't mind.
She would love that. And it does look fun in the movies.
Hey, you wanna have dinner with me Saturday night?
Oh, I can't. I'm going to Orlando for a week on Friday. Some guy's attempting to make the world's biggest pancake. Guess who's covering it?
That's gonna take a week? Yeah, he's gonna eat it, too. It's another record.
Hey, what's taking so long?
I know this is a long shot, but how about tomorrow night?
Yeah. What the hell. Jerk! That was fun.
De - wait for it - nied. Denied.
We're going out tomorrow night.
I thought we were playing Lazer Tag tomorrow night.
Yeah, I was never gonna go play Lazer Tag.
