How I Met Your Mother Spoiler Pics: Barney is Fat

at . Comments

How I Met Your Mother is one of the funniest shows on TV. But this isn't a joking matter:

On the sitcom's November 9 installment, Barney Stinson gives in to what producer Carter Bays refers to as a "relationship gut." Having already gotten the girl (Robin), the character really lets himself go, risking diabetes and heart disease.

"It’s a phenomenon that a lot of people can relate to, certainly more than a few people on our writing staff. It’s relationship gut,” Bays told People magazine.

The show's co-creator added that Neal Patrick Harris was more than game to don a fat suit:

“He was loving it. He was like, ‘Give me the biggest fat suit you’ve got.’”

HIMYM Quotes

Ted [to Stella in his dream encounter]: You picked the wrong guy.
Stella: Ted?
Ted: You picked the wrong guy. You made a really, really, really bad choice. What were you thinking? That guy? Are you kidding me? Have you learned nothing in the last eight years? You're just gonna regret this. You know that, right? You are going to regret this, and now there is nothing you can do about it because it's too late. All you can do now is go up there and start your crappy, disappointing life that will never be nearly as happy as the one you could have had with me. Good-bye.
Stella: Ted, wait.
Ted: Look, Stella, I am not here to win you back. I am here because I need to know that you know you made the biggest mistake of your life.
Stella: I know

You are the love of my life. Everything I have and everything I am is yours. Forever.
