The Yeti joke. How I Met Your Mother Files. Screencaps from The X-Files Season 1, Episode 20, “Darkness Falls.” Lines from HIMYM Season 9, Episode 24, “Last Forever, Part 2.”

It was at times a long, difficult road. But I’m glad it was long and difficult, because if I hadn’t gone through hell to get there, the lesson might not have been as clear. You see, kids, right from the moment I met your mom, I knew… I have to love this woman as much as I can for as long as I can, and I can never stop loving her, not even for a second. I carried that lesson with me through every stupid fight we ever had, every 5:00 a.m. Christmas morning, every sleepy Sunday afternoon, through every speed bump. Every pang of jealousy or boredom or uncertainty that came our way, I carried that lesson with me. And I carried it with me when she got sick. Even then, in what can only be called the worst of times, all I could do was look at her and thank God, thank every god there is, or ever was, or will be, and the whole universe, and anyone else I can possibly thank that I saw that beautiful girl on that train platform, and that I had the guts to stand up, walk over to her, tap her on the shoulder, open my mouth, and speak.

Dealing with the HIMYM finale:

DENIAL - It was an early April Fool’s Day joke. There’s no way that’s the real finale, the real ending. It’s just not possible.

ANGER - What the flippity flying fuck was that?

BARGAINING - We never actually saw Ted and Robin get back together. Maybe she turns him down, and he realizes it wasn’t a good idea. Maybe she and Barney do get together in the end. That wouldn’t be as good as it could have been but maybe I could learn to be OK with it.

DEPRESSION - There is no God. Loving things is futile. Every joy is just a disappointment in the end.

ACCEPTANCE DENIAL - 9x22 was the real finale. This was just an alternate ending they decided to air for funsies.
