Best How I Met Your Mother Episodes


The Top TenXW

1The 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!

So annoying! First of all, where did the pineapple come from?! Second of all, Ted is just REALLY annoying when he's drunk! I don't see why people like it so much. It didn't make me laugh once in the whole episode! - kennywilliams21

Funniest episode I saw! I laughed all the time and showed us a different Ted! Plus what's up with the pineapple?

Where did the pineapple come from!

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

Probably the best running gag on the show

I laughed so much... Let's go to the mall!

3Swarley - S02E07

This episode is pointless to me. What is supposed to be so funny about everyone calling Barney a stupid name?! - kennywilliams21

When Barney keeps getting mad at Ted for calling him Swarley DEAD

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.

My best episode of the series. Ted and Robin character just rocked!

5How I Met Everyone Else - S03E05

Different approach handled, we use to think the same among our friends

6Slapsgiving 2: Revenge of the Slap - S05E09
7Come 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.

13The Playbook - S05E08

Best Barney episode by far, genius plays in the playbook, nonstop laughs. This one is an absolute classic. There's never gonna be an episode like this again. It's better than any other episode by far.

He's just so damn creative, and he shows viewers exactly how he gets a woman. An insight into Barney Stinson, and therefore is obviously the best episode.

14The 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

There was a lot of backlash against this one, which I think was unjustified. The simple fact is, Barney and Robin weren't meant to be together, PERIOD. Barney was a womanizer, not a husband. But he did find one love, and that was his child. His transformation back into a womanizer was really nostalgic as well; It was who Barney was. Ted and Tracy had a seemingly perfect relationship. But the fact is, Tracy may have been the one for Ted, but it wasn't the other way around; the one for Tracy was Max, who died before she met Ted. But when Tracy died (if you're a religious person), she was reunited with Max in heaven. And while it seemed like Robin wasn't the one for Ted, he had his kids, but he was looking for someone to love after Tracy died. It's kind of like the final piece of the puzzle. It was at a time where Ted had his kids like he planned, and Robin loved his kids, and Ted's kids loved Robin. It was the final piece of a very complex puzzle. Max and Tracy were together, and Ted ...more

Worst ending of any T.V. series! They messed up the whole point of the T.V. show by really making it a story of how Ted met Robin! The show is called: How I Met Your Mother and guess what? ROBIN IS NOT THE MOTHER! Besides, Barney and Robin WERE way better than Ted and Robin. I completely agree with the comment 2 comments down. A blue french horn IS the only thing between Robin and Ted. And seriously, the Mother knew Ted for only 1 episode! And the stupidest part is: The show spent the whole 9th season within 3 days of Barney and Robin's wedding. They spent a whole 2 seasons about Barney and Robin's wedding and on the 2nd last episode of the show they got married...just to get divorced in the first 10 minutes of the last episode! Terrible ending on the show's part! - kennywilliams21

Ok first of all, Barney and Robin's chemistry was WAY better than Ted and Robin. Barney and Robin were amazing together and loved each other so much. The only thing in between Robin and Ted was a stupid blue french horn. Barney's propsal to Robin was one of the most romantic moments in How I Met Your Mother history. And Barney and Robin married literally the episode before and then the writers just divorced them! There are WAY more Barney and Robin fans than Ted and Robin fans. ALSO we literally met the mother for only 20 episodes before she was killed off which was literally the most stupid thing the writers could do besides divorce Barney and Robin.

Um this was trash
