How I Met Your Mother: Hidden Details About Barney Everyone Missed

Barney Stinson is one of the most notable characters in How I Met Your Mother. Here are some hidden details about him that most fans miss.

Year Of Birth

Barney’s exact age is never mentioned in the sitcom but it can be determined using a number of facts. In the Season 6 episode “Natural History,” Barney confesses to the gang that he knocked down the blue whale exhibit when he was around 6-years-old. When the security guard checked the footage, it was dated July 23, 1981.

This means that Barney was either born in the year 1974 or 1975. In the Season 2 episode “Coulmn” which aired in January 2007, Barney states that he is 31. And in the Season 7 episode “Drunk Train,” Marshall mentions that Barney is a Scorpio. These details place his date of birth between October 23 and November 21 and confirm his year of birth as 1975.

The Wedding Music

Wedding of robin and barney  was difficult for Ted fans to watch. There are a lot of fans who still feel that Robin always deserved to be with Ted more than Barney. This makes sense because Robin and Barney divorced after just three years.

Anyway, during the wedding, the song Sandcastles in the Sand plays when Robin walks down the aisle to make her vows to Barney. It’s easy to miss the fact that this is the same song that played when Robin and Barney hooked up for the first time in the sitcom.


The Only Character To Not Move Out Of His Apartment

Barney is the only character in the sitcom who never moves out of his apartment, otherwise known as The Heart Of Bachelor Country or The Fortress of Barnitude. Everyone else moves to a new place at some point.

His apartment has two bedrooms. One bedroom is occupied by his suits while the other is occupied by Barney himself. He has a life-sized “Stormtrooper” in the living room as well as two 300-inch flat-screened TVs. He must be wondering what the fuss about cinemas is all about.

He Fist-Bumped The Queen

In the Season 6 episode “Cleaning House,” Barney tells the gang that he once fist-bumped the Queen of England. They don’t believe him but he sticks to his story.

The odds of him fist-bumping the queen are minimal, considering the fact that Barney isn’t exactly a frequent traveler. The Queen doesn’t look like the kind of person to bump fists with anyone, either. But let’s just take Barney for his word. Great achievement there! Not many get to fist-bump members of the royal family.

The Slaps

Marshall states that he’ll save the final slap for a rainy day. In the Season 9 episode “The End Of The Aisle,” Marshall decides to use his final slap on Barney. When he does so, it’s actually raining outside. Coincidence? Or did Marshall really make sure he was going to slap Barney on a “rainy day?”

Obsessions With Suits And Ties

Barney has only been seen without a suit ten times a day. He also treats his suits and ties as living beings. In Season 5’s “Girls Versus Suits,” he weeps when he tears a suit. He goes ahead to give it a proper sendoff by creating it. Why not just take it to a tailor, Barney?

In Season 8’s “Lobster Crawl,” he tries to revive a tie by using mouth-to-mouth resuscitation on it. Reason? The tie has gotten a stain. And the award for being weird goes to…
