Barneyism of the Week - The Robin

Step 1:
Admit to yourself that you still have feelings for this girl.

Step 2:
Choose the completely wrong moment to make a drunken move
after hanging out at a strip club, and get shot down on purpose.

Step 3:
Agree that you two don’t work
locking the door on any future you could have together,
which will drive Robin nuts.

Step 4:
Robin goes nuts.

Step 5:
Find the person who annoys Robin most in the world, and ask for her help.
Explain everything to Patrice and hope that she agrees to help.

Step 6:
Check with your doctor about possible broken ribs.

Step 7:
Pretend to be dating Patrice.

Step 8:
Wait until Robin inevitably breaks into your place to find the Playbook
and show it to Patrice, which you’ll monitor via the hidden cameras
you have in your apartment.

Step 9:
After Patrice finds the Playbook have your first fight.

Step 10:
Prove your loyalty to Patrice by burning the Playbook,
and actually burn it.
You don’t need it anymore.

Step 11:
Because your friends have no boundaries
they’ll inevitably have an intervention for Robin,
which you’ll monitor via the hidden cameras
you have in Marshal and Lily’s apartment.

Step 12:
Tell only Ted about your plan to propose to Patrice.

Step 13:
Wait and see if Ted tells Robin, and if he does
it means your best bro in the world has let go of Robin
and given you his blessing.

Step 14:
Robin arrives at her favorite spot in the city,
and finds this secret, final page of the Playbook.
The last play you’ll ever run.

Step 15:
Robin realizes she’s standing under mistletoe.

Step 16:
Hope she says yes.

Robin Scherbatsky…will you marry me?

“Yes” - Robin

How I Met Your Mother - Neil Patrick Harris as Barney Stinson and Cobie Smulders as Robin Scherbatsky In Bed The Morning After Sleeping Together For The First Time
- Barney Stinson

"The Final Page, Part Two"

How I Met Your Mother

So this is probably the latest I’ve ever posted a Barneyism of the Week, but it was so monumental that I didn’t want to accidently spoil it for anyone. It’s been weeks since this episode aired, so no complaining!!! It’s Valentine’s Day, and The Blot could honestly not think of a better day to post “The Robin.” It’s the Barneyism that changes our Barney forever…and helps him grow up more than we’d probably like to admit. Here’s to Barney and Robin, may they live happily ever after in our imagination (and at least one and half more seasons of How I Met Your Mother!).
