From helping with relationships to hyping each other up, these moments prove that How I Met Your Mother’s Lily and Robin are BFF goals.
Where’s The Poop?
Lily knew Robin was not someone who does the mutual breakup thing. So when Robin shows up for drinks one day and lies about having ended things amicably, Lily sees right through the lie which also gave way to one of the most hysterical quotes in the show, “Where the poop, Robin?”
It’s just something Lily wants to explore, and on Robin’s wedding day when Barney gets too drunk and passes out Robin thinks of one way to revive him. Barney has obviously always rooted for the girls to ‘get it on,’ and to bring Barney back to senses Robin asks Lily to make out with her, which she is more than happy to do.
