ted x the mother

  • What She Says: I'm Fine.
  • What She Means: Barney and Robin were the most awesome god damn couple ever and they should not have broken apart just because of a simple travel issue. I find it hurtful that the writers would literally spend an entire season focused on these two's wedding and then within the first 10 minutes of the episode directly following the ceremony have them break up (while also breaking hearts) just so that they can put Robin with a half-fast reunitement of Robin and Ted despite Ted already being with the most perfect human being ever. So what do they do? They kill her off, just so they can put these two characters who have had no success in romantic relationships with each other. So not only do they destroy one adorable and beloved couple but two. Yes, I am still bitter over this.

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.

  • What she says : I'm fine.
  • What she means : The reason HIMYM finale was a tragedy lies in the last seconds where Ted and Robin get back together. Not only did the writers destroy the most interesting and romantic couple this show has ever had, but they also gave the annoying stupid excessive male character his happy ending while ruining the independent woman and the sensitive womanizer. Worse, they admitted Robin should have been The Mother, which would have been catastrophic since she's never wanted kids. Also, Ted was ready to marry any girl. Robin never left Barney's mind. For Ted, there has been Stella, Victoria, Tracy, etc. For Barney, there was only Robin. She was The One™.
Hi,
I’m Ted Mosby and exactly 45 days from now you and I are gonna meet and we’re gonna fall in love and we’re gonna get married and we’re gonna have two kids and we’re gonna love them and each other so much.
All that is 45 days away but I am here now, I guess, because I want this extra 45 days with you, I want each one of them. Look if I can’t have them I take the 45 seconds before your boyfriend shows up and punches me in the face because
I love you
I’m always gonna love you
until the end of my days and beyond.
