How I Met Your Mother’s Robin (Cobie Smulders) was one of the most skeptical of the group, but she dropped some wisdom on her quotes about love.
“Closure Doesn’t Exist”
Each time Don pops up on Robin’s TV, she drunk dials him and leaves him indelicate voicemails. Lily tries to lecture her into not doing that, but Robin defends her actions by saying: “I am never going to have closure. Okay, closure doesn’t exist.”
“You Are Going To Miss Out On Something Great”
She says “you keep giving up on people so quickly, you could miss out on something great”.
“But Timing Is A B***H”
Robin: “You start believing again.”
Ted: “In what, destiny?”
Robin: “Chemistry. If you have chemistry, you only need one other thing.”
Ted: “What’s that?”
Robin: “Timing. But timing’s a b***h.”
Isn’t That Worth Hanging On To?
“I know our relationship isn’t exactly what you want it to be. And I know I may not love you the way you love me, but I DO love you. Isn’t that worth hanging on to?”
“You Stole A Blue French Horn For Me?”
Ted and Robin announced their breakup at the end of “Something Blue.” Robin: “You stole a blue french horn for me?” Ted tells her he would have stolen her a whole orchestra.
“Reacher And A Settler”
“Every relationship has a reacher and a settler… That’s why Lily is not jealous. The settler is never jealous of the reacher because, where is the reacher gonna go? The settler Lily is the best thing that the reacher Marshall is ever gonna get.”
“The Journey Is The Best Part”
“That’s pathetic. You can’t just jump to the end. The journey is the best part.”
“Okay, I Have Missed You”
“Okay, I’ve missed you. Not in a we’re-going-to-make-out way, not even in an l-forgive-you way. Just in an I’ve-missed-you way.”
“Is There Any Part Of You That Wants To Try Again?”
“I know we didn’t work out the first time and I know it doesn’t make any sense but I can’t shake the feeling that we belong together. Is there any part of you that wants to try again?”
“It’s A Mistake”
Robin says the following words: “The future is scary, but you can’t just run back to the past because it’s familiar. Yes, it’s tempting”. Barney finishes her by saying, “But it’s a mistake.”
