Lily : Okay, I think we need to lay down some ground rules. Just because we can be loud, doesn't mean we have to be loud. And although it might turn you on, you screaming, 'I'M THE BEST!' doesn't do much for me.
Marshall : Well, it's a lot better than yelling, 'Ted's not here!' over and over again.
Lily : Well, at least what I said is true!
Marshall : Well that was unnecessary.
Barney Stinson : If I had a room here all I have to do is get them upstairs. Come on, guys. It'll be great! We'll come in after you guys are asleep and I'll be gone before you wake up.
Lily : So, you get to have sex and we get to wake some skanky girl up in the morning and kick her out?
Barney Stinson : God, Lily. Some guy just told her that he loved her then pretended to go to the bathroom and never came back you can't make her a cup of coffee? Real nice.
Marshall Eriksen : Lily... deep within the Amazonian rainforest, there is a type of tree that only grows around the body of an existing tree. It cannot survive without this tree. It is supported... by this tree. Lily, we are that tree.
Lily : The inside tree or the outside tree?
Marshall Eriksen : The outside tree.
Lily : Shouldn't there be three trees?
Marshall Eriksen : You and I are one tree. Okay, look, Lily, the point is that we grew around Ted and without him, we're slowly dying.
Lily : What do we do?
Marshall Eriksen : I think we can marry each other. But we also have to marry Ted.
Lily : I'll tell you right now, my Dad is not gonna pay for that wedding.
Ted Mosby : Look, I know that you guys were really excited to have a place to yourself, and... until after the wedding, I mean, if it's not too much of an imp...
[Lily and Marshall interrupt Ted by hugging him, one at each side of him, looking peaceful. Ted looks rather uncomfortable]
Ted Mosby : Um...
Marshall : God, this feels so right.
Lily : Mm. Never leave us again.
Ted Mosby : Guys, Robin's down in the truck, and there's actually a lot of boxes...
[Lily hushes him while she and Marshall are still hugging Ted]
Lily : I put all your heavy jackets in this box marked "winter." And all your colorful sweaters in this box marked "Bill Cosby."
Marshall : This is so great! We can finally do all the things we always said we wanted to do if we lived alone.
Lily : Oh, I know what I want to start with.
[Cut to them sitting on the couch naked]
Marshall : So, here we are, right? Sitting around the apartment naked. Awesome.
Lily : [Without enthusiasm] Yep.
Marshall : It's not as awesome as I thought it would be.
Lily : My butt itches.
Marshall : I'm cold.
Lily : I noticed.
