“The Wedding Bride”: How I Met Your Mother (S5: E23)

Posted by CJ Cregg on May 17, 2010

What's Barney's baggage?

Plot Summary: Everyone has baggage, Ted learns.  He’s dating a new girl, and is trying to figure out what her baggage is.  They go to a movie that is loosely based on Ted’s life, starring an architect named Jed Moseley, written by Stella’s ex-boyfriend.  The movie portrays Jed/Ted to be a big douche.  But the movie makes Ted realize that he has baggage, too.

What we Learn about the Mother: She’s gotta be ok with a dude with baggage.

Best Moment:

Ted complains about how Tony’s movie got he and Stella’s relationship all wrong.  He goes around describing all the sweet things he did for Stella.  Lily replies to each one: That was soooo sweet.  Marshall chimes in: Realllllly romantic!  Robin says: Aaaaaaand a little cheesy.

Top 3 Quotes:

1) When discussing how everyone has baggage, Marshall says: I don’t have baggage.  Ted replies: Mother issues.  Robin says: Grandmother issues.  Barney says: Great grandmother issues.  Marshall replies: I just don’t like it when she picks me up.

2) Lily describes Marshall’s baggage, being too nice: He’s from Minnesooooota.  His high school mascot was a hug.

3) Ted describes the movie to the gang after he sees it with the new girl.  Marshall is really into his description.  As Ted describes the end, Marshall exclaims: Whoah!  Spoilers!  [Pause] is what I would say if I ever planned on seeing such a horrible film.

This was a lame episode.  HIMYM has been off and on recently.

    How about the baggage at the end, front and center. “Cubs fan.” I laughed…and then I cried.

    Heh. Admittedly, I didn’t notice that. But your reaction seems appropriate. Minus the crying part.
