Fandom: How I Met Your Mother
Subject: Ted / Robin
Title: It Had To Be You!
Warnings: Spoilers all the way just to be safe
Notes: I know. I know, I know. Not canon, never going to happen, BrOTP , etc etc. I don't care. There so perfect together, and the song (It had to be you) is so perfect for them, and... yeah. "I would have stolen you a whole orchestra." My current theory is that Ted is telling the kids this story to explain to them why he is leaving their Mom to get back together with Robin. Yeah.
//just the girl (click5)'cause she's bittersweet/ she knocks off me off my feet/ and i can't help myself, i don't want anyone else/ she's a mystery/ she's too much for me/ but I keep coming back for more/ she's just the girl i'm looking for
// there she goes again (the cranberries)there she goes again/ and i just can't contain/ this feeling that remains
Ted: Mom, Dad. I have met the future Mrs. Ted Mosby. Marshall, remember this night. When you’re the best man at our wedding and you give a speech, you’re gonna tell this story.
//stay loose (belle and sebastian)i was waiting for the good times/ you said let the good times start/ with a quiver of your eyelid/ You took on someone else’s part/ and what about me? i don't really see/ how things could improve, all you want is to stay loose
Ted: Damn it.
Ted: I’m in love with her.
Ted: You’re right, there’s no off switch. God I wish there was an off switch.// head over feet (alanis morisette)
you are the bearer/of unconditional things/you held your breath/ and the door for me/ thanks for your patience
Robin: So Ted didn't care that you wanted to make a move on me.// crazy for this girl (lifehouse)face to face/ ready to spend the rest of my life with you/ will you look at how she looks at me, she's got me thinking about her constantly/ but she don't know how I feel/
Barney: Didn't care at all. Oh. Oooh. You like Ted!
Ted: I don't want perfect. I want Robin.// if you wanna i might (hellogoodbye)I've been assuming everything. / Hoping you'll soon mean everything./ I've gotta stay calm, I want this to be real. / I don't think you're into me,/ And truly that's okay with me. / I've gotta stay calm and find out how you feel.
Lily: OK, what is wrong with the two of you?! Seriously. He likes you and you like him, just, just, just be together. Geez, Louise, happiness is not that difficult.//take a chance (scouting for girls)i know it's been a difficult year/ it's been all i could do/ just keepin' you/ i want you know/ you're the star of my show/ i know you try to hide, i know you try to act tough/ but take a chance on us
Ted: One more. One big, beautiful romantic gesture.//kissing in the rain (tori amos)instrumental
Ted: Why? Because I MADE IT RAIN!!! That's what I did today!!! And that's enough! I..I've done my part, now GET DOWN HERE!!!//somebody loved (the weepies)
cold turned our breath into clouds/ we never said what we were dreaming of/ but you turn me into somebody loved
Robin: You stole a blue French horn for me.//borrowed time (a fine frenzy)
Ted: I would have stolen you a whole orchestra.
But you say you're getting tired /You're tired and so am I / When you follow from behind Step, step right over the line /And onto borrowed time
//both hands (ani difranco)but in each other's shadows we grew less and less tall/ and eventually our theories couldn't explain it all/ and i'm writing graffit on your body and i'm drawing the story of how hard we tried
Ted: Honestly, in five years, I'd probably want to be married.
Robin: And I'd probably want to be in Argentina.
Robin: Or Tokyo, or Paris. Look Ted, I don't know where I'm gonna be in five years. I don't wanna know, I want my life to be an adventure.
Ted: We have an expiration date, don't we?
Ted: You weren't trying to win the breakup?//love will tear us apart (fall out boy)and resent rides high/ but emotions won't grow/ and we're changing our ways/ taking different roads
Robin: I was trying to survive it.
Robin: Don't get married. Look you're rushing into this, it's like you're trying to skip ahead to the end of the book. Ted, you're the most romantic guy I know; you stole a blue French horn for me, you tried to make it rain-
Ted: I did make it rain.
Robin: It was a coincidence, but after all that, this is how your great romantic quest comes to an end? You're just disappearing into someone else's wedding, someone else's house, someone else's life without a second thought. That's not the amazing ending that you deserve. That's not Ted Mosby.
Ted: [after long pause] I love Stella, she's the one. You really feel that way, I guess it's a good thing you're not coming to the wedding after all. [storms out]
//almost (bowling for soup)here i go thinking 'bout all the things i should have done/ gonna need a forklift 'cause all the baggage weighs a ton/ and i almost had you/but i guess that doesn't cut it/ almost loved you/ i almost wish you would have loved me to
//it had to be you (motion city soundtrack)and after it ends/ we'll try to be friends/ they say that what doesn't kill us makes us who we are/ all this time and everything's changed and i still feel the same/what a disaster it would be if you discovered that i care/ a little too much for friends but not enough to share
Ted: We broke up over a year ago.
Robin: Yeah, but that's not that long ago. Watching you marry another woman isn't what I was looking forward to. I don't know, if I would change my mind about marriage and kids, it's nice to know that you were there.
Ted: So I was your safety school. How flattering.
Ted: Robin Scherbatsky, will you be my back up wife?//grow old with me (the postal service)Grow old along with me/ Whatever fate decrees/ We will see it through/ For our love is true/ God bless our love/ God bless our love
Robin: A girl always dreams of hearing those words! Yes! Yes! A million times, yes!
