“Architect of Destruction”: HIMYM (S6:E5)
Posted by CJ Cregg on October 19, 2010
Plot Summary: Ted tries to leave the GNB building project when a girl convinces him that they need to save the building which GNB is knocking down. Robin is seeing Max, one of Marshall’s lawyer friends. Marshall gets nervous when he finds out girlfriends share a lot about sex.
What we Learn about the Mother: Nada.
Best moment: Barney is trying to convince Ted that newer is always better and he should let the landmark building be knocked down. Ted presses him on this by asking Barney if the newest three Star Wars movies were the best. Barney responds: Yes. The first three didn’t even mention the intricacies of intergalactic trade policy. Ted then says he’ll buy Barney a drink and asks the waitress what their oldest scotch is. She replies with a prestigious brand and says it’s been aged for 30 years. When he asks what their newest scotch is, she tells him it’s Jumbo Jim’s Grape Scotch and adds not to let it touch his skin. Barney winces as he orders a glass.
Top 3 Quotes:
1) Barney is really excited to be working with Ted. He says, “It’s legen… I’ll send you an inter-office memo with the rest because we freaking work together!” In the middle of his next meeting, Ted receives an urgent fax that says “dary.”
2) Ted tells the gang about the new girl, Zoe, who is convincing him to not build the new building. Barney tells him he has no chance with her once she learns he’s the architect of destruction. Marshall breaks in: Whoah, sweet wrestling name.
3) Once Ted learns Zoe is married, he decides he doesn’t care about the landmark building. He wonders if he’ll ever see her again, though. She turns up throwing eggs at his window with a sign that says “Say no-sby to Mosby.” Heehee.
