“Baby Talk”: How I Met Your Mother (S6: E6)

Posted by CJ Cregg on October 26, 2010

Perky Becky

This episode was pretty lame.  There was no overarching hilarity, and I struggled to pick this week’s best moment.

Plot Summary: Marshall and Lily fight over whether they want their baby to be a boy or a girl.  Ted goes out with Becky, Robin’s perky co-anchor because he likes to feel needed.  Barney tries to pick up girls while talking like an 8-year-old boy.

What we Learn about the Mother: Nothing.

Best Moment: Marshall realizes that he has no idea what it would be like to raise a girl.  In his worst nightmare, his daughter ends up a stripper dating a guy who looks like Barney.  At the strip club, they announce, “Now dancing, MARSHALL’S DAUGHTER!” And she struts on stage while Marshall looks on, horrified.

Top 3 Quotes:

1) As Marshall and Lily talk about baby names at MacLaren’s, Ted tells Marshall: You can’t name a chubby white kid Lebron.  He’ll end up stuffed in the basketball hoop.  Marshall looks down and crosses a name off of his list.

2) Marshall video chats with his parents to get advice on conception.  Marshall’s dad asks his mom to get him a brewski.  She turns to Marshall: You want anything hun?  Marshall sighs and replies: I’m in the computer, Mom.

3) Marshall and Lily decide that they don’t care what sex their baby ends up being.  Marshall says: Let’s just hope for a healthy, happy, 12 pound baby.  Lily shoots him a look.  Marshall replies: 10?  Lily makes a thumbs down.  Marshall: 8?  Lily replies: Ok, but you’re writing checks my vagina can’t cash.

    Does anyone know the name of the actress who played Marshall’s daughter in Baby Talk? I recognise her but cant place her!

    Marshall’s daughter is played by Emily Wilson, according to the episode’s credits. But since it’s a common name, I wasn’t able to find out much more than that. I think this might be her, though: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2578291/

    She plays on MTV’s Disaster Date
