Well Barney

LILLY
Well Barney… it looks like your mom kept your childhood bedroom just the way you left it.

MARSHALL
Yeah, that sure is a big poster of the Karate Kid over your bed.

BARNEY
Hey, Karate Kid is a great movie. It’s the story of a hopeful, young karate enthusiast whose dreams and moxie take him all the way to the All Valley Karate Championship. Of course, sadly, he loses in the final round to that nerd kid. But he learns an important lesson about gracefully accepting defeat.

LILLY
Wait, when you watch the Karate Kid you actually root for that mean blond boy?

BARNEY
Noooo! I root for the scrawny loser from New Jersey who barely even knows karate… When I watch the Karate Kid I root for the Karate Kid! Johnny Lawrence from the Cobra Kai dojo! Get your head outta your ass, Lilly.

MARSHALL
Let me get this straight. You’re really telling me that when you’re watching the Karate Kid you don’t root for Daniel-San?

BARNEY
Nope.

TED
Who do you root for in Die Hard?

BARNEY
Hans Gruber– charming, international bandit. At the end he died hard. He’s the title character.

LILLY
Okay… The Breakfast Club?

BARNEY
The teacher running detention. He’s the only guy in the whole movie wearing a suit.

ROBIN
I got one! Terminator.

BARNEY
What’s the name of the movie, Robin? Who among us didn’t shed a tear when his little red eye went out at the end and he didn’t get to kill these people? […] They didn’t even try to help him!

Jap. Vor allem witzig, weil er sich mit dem Kinddarsteller über catch phrases gestritten hat. Überhaupt gab’s in der Folge einige wirklich gute Anspielungen und Reflexionen.
