BrOTP [BarneyღRobin] #25 ~ Because He Flew Across The Atlantic For Her (Sort Of)

Welcome to the 25th BarneyRobin Thread

Ted: I've seen Barney work very hard to get women. I've seen him work very hard to get rid of women.
I've never seen him work this hard to keep one around.

Barney: I'm not a New York Yankee. Any other night, I would probably try to convince you that I am, but I'm not.
I'm just some guy who's in love with the girl that just left.
And she's... never gonna feel the same way.

L a t e s t R e a s o n s:
106. Because she was so scared he was cheating on her
107. Because Ted's never seen him work this hard to keep a girl around before
108. Because he was just scared that she was going to dump him
109. Because "You're an idiot"
110. Because he wanted to drill her and do some cramming ... for the test
111. Because he flew all the way to Canada to get her back
112. Because he still wanted to do it in the hotel room
113. Because he defended her in front of the angry Canadians
114. Because he’s officially planting his flag in her
115. Because she thought America was cool with the way Barney stood up for her

S p e c i a l B r o s:
Lily Aldrin & Marshall Eriksen
H o n o r a r y B r o s:
Neil Patrick Harris & Cobie Smulders
P u p p e t e e r B r o:

Robin: [on the phone] Hi there, sexy.
Barney: Hello, Aunt Kathy, what's up?
Robin: Oh, nothin'. Just sittin' here, thinking about you, hot stuff.
Barney: An accident? Well, is Uncle Rudy gonna be okay?
Robin: Aunt Kathy's got an itch that only you can scratch, big boy.
Barney: Oh, God! Why did he think he could build his own helicopter!
Robin: C'mon daddy, break me off a piece of that white chocolate.

Robin: You and me? That's insane. If you even thought about it for 1 second -
Barney: Well I have thought about it for three seconds and it makes a lot of sense.
We both think that marriage commitment thing's a drag, we both want something
casual and fun and we clearly get along really well.
Robin: Wow, that actually did make a lot of sense.
Barney: Yeah.
Lily: You're in love? That is so sweet!
Barney: It's not sweet, it's like a disease. I slept with Robin one time and I caught feelings.
I caught feelings bad. I used protection and everything.
Lily: Barney, you don't catch feelings, you just have them. And they're good.
Barney: They're terrible. I can't eat, I can't sleep. She's all I think about. I close my eyes,
I see Robin. I hear a song, it reminds me of Robin. ... I sleep with that chick, I'm thinking about Robin!

Marshall: I know that you're in love with Robin! ... Lily told me.
Barney: She told you? Great, I bet you guys have been laughing
at me behind my back the whole time.
Marshall: Actually, in a weird way, we both think you're kinda perfect for each other.
Barney: You do?
Marshall: Yeah, matter of fact we even tried to sit on the same side of the booth
so you two would have to sit together.
Barney: Really? That's so sweet!
Robin: I love you.
Barney: Let's be friends.
Robin: Okay, friends then.
Barney: I love you.
Robin: Let's get married.
Barney: No, you're smothering me.
Robin: Okay forget it.
Barney: AHHHH!
Robin: AHHHH!

Robin: We're both afraid of commitment but the fact is,
we also can't live without each other.
Barney: And if the alternative is not being together
then it's work taking this risk 'cause ... She's awesome.
Robin: And he's awesome. ... He looks nice in a suit.
Barney: She can handle her scotch.
Robin: He's my boyfriend.
Barney: And she's my girlfriend.

I think both us and fans of the show saw
that they had great chemistry back in season one,
when Barney and Robin kind of wingman'ed each other one night in
Zip, Zip, Zip - they played laser tag and smoked cigars and stuff, and all the fans
started speculating that clearly it has to go that way. We just didn't want to rush towards it,
so we held off for a while. But ultimately we knew we wanted to get to that because they're great together.
* Craig Thomas

Barney's feelings for Robin are out there,
and it seems like Robin might have
feelings for Barney herself.
It's not classic happily ever after, to say the least. It's two people that aren't
programmed for happily ever after and never would have prioritized that,
were it not for the fact that they're crazy about each other.
They’re finally going to deal with what’s been going on with them the last few years.
* Carter Bays
Barney: How are you gonna feel when he sees you without any make-up?
Robin: I'm not wearing make-up right now.
Barney: Holy crap, you're beautiful!

Barney: You're the most awesome person I have ever known.
Well, second most awesome.
Robin: Right, of course the first being you.
Barney: No. No, the first is this guy who lives in a place called the mirror.
What up?
Robin: You know what a romantic he is. He can't seperate the physical
from the emotional, he's all like ...
Barney: I love you.
Robin: Exactly, he's not like you, you know?

Barney: Why are you so afraid of giving this a chance?
Robin: Because I am scared of how much I like you.
Robin: You wanna get some breakfast?
Barney: You know, brunch actually does sound kind of good.
Robin: Well, lead the way, sweetie pie.

Barney: I'm really scared that you're gonna dump me
and that's why I did this and I'm sorry.
Robin: You're an idiot.
Barney: Maybe I don't wanna be saved the trouble.
Maybe I want the trouble. I haven't wanted the
trouble in a long time but with you, the trouble
doesn't seem so ... troubling.

For some reason I put Return of the Shirt as 1x06 instead of 1x04, and wrote "and" instead of "an". Nothing too major

It all looks so good though
thank you.

OMG! I LOVE the OP! It was such a shock because I didn't realise we were totally getting a new one, I thought we were just adding some stuff! It looks amazing!!

Also, on the wish list - "Barney getting possesive while Robin gets hit on." Does Barney punching Brad not count there?
