The Top Ten

The Pineapple Incident - S01E10
For me it is the funniest episode! I laughed so hard when I watched it that I peed a little! I even was crying!
Funniest episode I saw! I laughed all the time and showed us a different Ted! Plus what's up with the pineapple?
I wanted winnie cooper to be ym & this episode gave the hope. My hopes were shattered of course.
[Newest]One of the best episodes ever, and it is really hard to pick just one. The whole show is Legendary!

2Slap Bet - S02E9
Definitely the best episode. Gives a lot of context and anecdotes to many other episodes and seasons. Plus, it's hilarious.
Best episode of the series slap bet formed from this and we also learned something funny about robin

3Swarley - S02E07
It is the funniest episode.
" Swarlos "
" Bob Swarley "

4Pilot - S01E01
This episode is the best because it's what launched How I Met Your Mother into sucess. Right away you begin to identify with characters and become invested in Ted's story and how everyone else will play into it.

5Girls versus Suits - S05E12
The best pop song I ever heard... Nothing suits me like a (wait for it) suiit although she looks hot... I chose you bayb
This episode is special, "two, three fourr..."
Is it bad that I know almost all the words

6How Your Mother Met Me - SO9E16
The mother is so lovely, a really good episode.
The summary of whole series
Definitely best episode in the entire series
[Newest]You can feel the love in this episode

7How I Met Everyone Else - S03E05
Different approach handled, we use to think the same among our friends
Epic... Direction, story, and gags too ;)


8Slapsgiving 2: Revenge of the Slap - S05E09

9Legendaddy - S06E19

10Come On - S01E22
Just such a beautiful moment when Ted and Robin kiss in her apartment after he became the rain man... juxtaposed against Marshall breaking up with Lily, truly bitter sweet.

The Contenders

11Slapsgiving - S03E9

12The Final Page - S08E11/12
After two years of on and off, Barney and Robin find each other in this (double) episode, in a scene which is so truly Barney and so deeply moving and romantic. Finally.
Let your heart hold fast.. great scene "The Robin"
The suspense built up til the end is amazing! :D

13The Naked Man - S05E09
Hilarious! I have watched it a million times and never get tired

22Last Forever - S09E23/24
Greatest ending to ANY T.V. series.

23Okay Awesome - S01E05

24Arrivaderci Fiero - S02E17
Out of the many fantastic episodes that how I met your mother have put out, this one takes the cake as my favorite. The commingling of memories had between the characters make this episode in particular feel very organic for a sitcom and the framing device of the car works beautifully. Probably the best overall performance of the whole cast in the whole series.

25Where Were We - S02E1

26Sandcastles in the Sand - S03E16

27Bad News - S06E13
The episode is the best because of the emotional ending
The end I probably the best scene in the entire series.
Great Episode..Sad Ending..Still Great

28Atlantic City - S02E08

29Something Blue - S02E22

30Definitions - S05E01
Love seeing Ted's 1st Day as a professor, love that Lily locks "Barnman and Robin" in a room, and of course I love everything about the Indiana Jones whip that Marshall can't stop using!

31Spoiler Alert - S03E08
This was the best and most funniest episode

32Symphony of Illumination - S07E12

33No Pressure - S07E17

34Subway Wars - S06E04

35The Time Travelers - S08E20
45 days speach
The song at the end by Barneys and Teds
Minnesota tidal wave v/s Robin Scherbatsky "Dance off"

36Gary Blauman - S09E21
Perfect example of what makes How I Met Your Mother awesome. Flashbacks, flash forwards, and the montage at the end is a scene only How I Met Your Mother could pull off. A funny and sweet story.
Amazingly funny episode with an ensemble appearance of past supporting characters.
First episode I saw. Got me hooked.


37The Front Porch - S05E17

38The Wedding Bride - S05E23

39Somethin Borrowed - S02E21

40Weekend at Barney's
HILLARIOUS! Marshal and lily have a story, barney and ted have a story, both are great.

41Nothing Good Happens After 2 A.M. - S01E18
Not only was this episode hilarious at times - but also brought out Ted's emotions for Robin and Victoria.

Robin: Have you ever had one of those days when nothing at all that monumental happens but by the end of it you have no idea who you are anymore or what the hell you're doing with your life? Did you ever have one of those days?
Ted: Uh... about once a week.
Robin: I'd'know, it was just a rough day and the only person I wanted to see at the end of it was you.

Come on, Lily, how many women can say that they have been personally serenaded by Korean Elvis?

Ted: I'm going over to this girl's house to make juice.
Taxicab driver: Nice!
Ted: Oh no, it's not like that, we're juicing as friends

42Bass Player Wanted - S09E13

43Last Words - S06E14
Strong acting, really puts you in Marshall's uncomfortable and sad spot, just powerless.

44Robots versus Wrestlers - S05E22

45Ten Sessions - S03E13
Nice long shot at 2 minutes date...

46Murtaugh - S04E19

47Rabbit or Duck - S05E15

My first episode I've ever seen of the sitcom. A lot of memories and the song "Mother of Pearl" by Roxy Music was just perfect for the last few minutes of the episode.
