How I met your mother

Lily: “Okay, first off… to everyone at this table…”
“…I love you guys so much, I can’t even…”

“Secondly, to Ted… A man with… more emotional endurance than anyone I know.”
“It was a long, difficult road. Thank God we finally got here.

Ted: “Aunt Lily wasn’t wrong.”
“It was at times a long, difficult road.”
“But I’m glad it was long and difficult, because if I hadn’t gone through hell to get there, the lesson might not have been as clear.”

“You see, kids, right from the moment I met your mom; I knew… I have to love this woman as much as I can, for as long as I can, and I can never stop loving her, not even for a second.”
“I carried that lesson with me through every stupid fight we ever had, every 5:00 a.m. Christmas morning, every sleepy Sunday afternoon, through every speed bump.”
“Every pang of jealousy or boredom or uncertainty that came our way.
I carried that lesson with me. And I carried it with me when she got sick.”

“Even then, in what can only be called the worst of times, all I could do was…”
“Thank God, thank every god there is, or ever was, or will be,
and the whole universe,”

“and anyone else I can possibly thank…”

“…that I saw that beautiful girl, on that train platform…”
“and that I had the guts to stand up, walk over to her, tap her on the shoulder, open my mouth…”
“and speak.”

“And that, kids… is how I met your mother.”
