“False Positive”: How I Met Your Mother (S6: E12)

Posted by CJ Cregg on December 13, 2010

Plot Summary: Lily takes a pregnancy test that is a false positive.  Robin reassesses her career choices thinking she’s going to be an aunt.  Barney contemplates how to spend his GNB New Years’ bonus in charitable ways.

What we Learn about the Mother: This category is a false positive.

Best Moment:

When talking to Robin about her potential job offer at Worldwide News versus a game show hosting gig, Ted asks: Have you forgotten your New Years’ resolution?  (Flashback to Robin from January 1, 2010, on the couch and clutching a trashcan.  She groans: I’m never drinking again.)  Ted says: No, before that.  (Another flashback of Robin at the bar waving a bottle of whiskey.  She says: I’m gonna drink this whole bottle.)  Ted: No, before that.  (Another flashback.  Robin tells Ted: By this time next year, I’m going to work at Worldwide News.)

Top 3 Quotes

1) Lily announces to the gang: I’m pregnant.  Barney shrieks: I’ve never seen that woman before in my life.  He runs out of the room, returns a second later, and says: Sorry, force of habit.

2) Barney describes the diamond suit he wants to buy with his GNB holiday bonus.  He claims: It’s the uppest a person could ever suit.

3) Marshall and Lily are off the rails about their ‘pregnancy.’  Marshall says calmly: Don’t freak out.  We have nine months to prepare.  Lily replies: So let’s make a list of everything we have to do before the baby comes, and DO IT ALL TONIGHT!
