Barney (Neil Patrick Harris)'s magic number is 83. He uses it for most statistics. One time, in his old man make-up, he used it as his age. See more »
On season 5, episode 21, Barney tells a story of how he had sex with a portuguese contortionist. Later that season, in episode 24, on his map where he marks every country which he has had sex with someone from, Portugal is unmarked. See more »
[Lily sees Barney hitting on Claudia]
Oh, hell. No!
[grabs Barney by the ear and yanks him away from Claudia]
Claudia is getting married tomorrow and so help me God if I catch you even so much as breathing the same air as her I will take those peanuts you're trying to pass off as testicles and I will squeeze them so hard until your eyes pop out and then I'll feed them to you like grapes.
Wait... my eyes? Or my testicles?
[pause, thinks about it]
One of each!

I don't have much in the way of a review other than to say that based on the pilot, I think this show has a lot of potential to be a really good show. The cast is funny and endearing and the premise is fun. It might not be the most original idea for the show (think Wonder Years) but it has it's own little twist that should make for some interesting episodes. Hopefully next weeks episode will be just as watchable and entertaining. If you haven't checked it out, I recommend that you do. Alyson Hannigan and Neil Patrick Harris are the perfect complements to the show. The rest of the cast is somewhat unfamiliar to me though I must admit. I recall seeing Jason Segel in Freaks and Geeks, but I haven't really seen him in anything as impressive since so hopefully he'll bring the same originality he showed as Nick to his new character, Marshall. Josh Radnor is the newcomer in the bunch and he is just perfect for the part. He's cute yet dorky, with a lovable charm that will certainly endear him to many female viewers. I see only good things on the horizon for this show and I hope it finds a permanent home at CBS.
