How I Met Your Mother: Barney Stinson’s Top 10 Moments

The last episode of How I Met Your Mother aired in 2014, but the fame of the series remains today, gaining new fans every year. Much of the success of the series is due to the extremely well thought out characters.

Barney Stinson is an irremediable and somewhat self-centered womanizer who spends much of the show being a kind of lone wolf, addicted to dating and always telling crazy stories.

To do the character justice, Minha Série separated Barney Stinson’s 10 best moments in How I Met Your Mother.

Watch out for spoilers!

Barney’s love for his suits causes countless funny situations. Who does not remember when he spoke “suit up”, which in Portuguese would be something like “put the suit on”?

There is even an episode in which he suffers an accident, he is all in a cast, but he regrets that he was cut off his suit with a saw to remove it from the rubble.

9. Take care of Lily when she is homeless

In one of the most complicated moments of the series, Lily and Marshall are separated and she has nowhere to live. Barney welcomes his friend, who moves in with him, but she has two missions: not to change anything in the apartment and to help him dismiss the women. A mixture of tender and funny scenes are born from that moment.

8. Did a double for Marshall and Lily to try to have children

Despite being against getting married and having children, Barney shows himself to be much more than a mere pessimist. When Marshall and Lily are waiting for his doppelgänger to appear as a sign to have children, the friend dresses up several times with other people to encourage the couple. The moments yield many funny scenes, but, mainly, show a little of the character’s good heart.

7. Has a mysterious job

The famous Bro Code is mentioned by Barney throughout the series. He says he follows the commandments written there to the letter and always makes up wonderful stories from the past to create an origin for the book. In the last season, the book is published in real life and in the fictional world, being in several hotels and airplanes.

4. Proposes Robin to marry

In the best Barney Stinson style, he prepares a whole play from the famous The Playbook to make “The Robin”, asking his beloved in marriage. He kisses her, pretends to give up trying to win her over, even ignores her and pretends a relationship with Patrice; in search of his friend’s blessing, he only tells Ted that he’s going to propose to Patrice. In the end, it’s all a plan to ask for Robin’s hand. These scenes are some of the funniest and most exciting in the series.

3. Build the relationship with Robin
