In a world where cutting to black (The Sopranos) or sending your characters to prison (Seinfeld) passes for a series finale, How I Met Your Mother's ender was decidedly sweet and complete.

While some critics have harshed on this season, the CBS sitcom did a terrific job of tying up all sorts of loose ends (The Mother has a name! The Cockamouse lives!) Except one, that is.

How I Met Your Mother's Kids: We Filmed the Finale 9 Years Ago!

Originally posted 03/31/2014 12:30PM

After nine sidesplitting seasons, CBS's How I Met Your Mother will be ending Monday, but it turns out that parts of the finale actually went before the cameras a very long time ago – in 2005, to be exact!

"We shot this last little section nine years ago," actress Lyndsy Fonseca tells PEOPLE. "It was so long ago, I don't really remember what I said."

Although Fonseca has appeared throughout the series in flash-forwards as the daughter of the titular Mother, all of her scenes were shot during the CBS sitcom's first season – the only way to ensure her on-screen brother, David Henrie, looked the same age for the entire series (despite the fact that he was going through puberty at the time).

Ted Mosby has dated a lot of women on How I Met Your Mother. We wouldn't call him a "slut" exactly, nor would we describe his dates as "random skanks," but the architect has certainly had more than his fair share of Mrs. Right Nows along his journey to find Mrs. Right. Some of them were guest stars, some of them were series regulars, and some of them didn't even have names (sorry, Blah Blah – we mean, Carol). But rich or poor, blonde or brunette, one thing united them: They all fell under Mosby's strange spell.

And now is the time, in the grand tradition of nuts and pies, to rank them.

The Kids of How I Met Your Mother Answer Your Questions on Twitter

You've met the mother. And in the series finale, Ted finally does. But before bidding farewell to How I Met Your Mother forever, we checked in with the children who have waited nine long seasons to hear their parents' love story.

David Henrie and Lyndsy Fonseca joined PEOPLE on Twitter on Monday afternoon, answering fans' questions live with the hashtag #AskTheKids. Though they've gotten less screen time than the actors playing the MacLaren's gang, you could argue Henrie, 24, and Fonesca, 27, are the stars of the show. After all, without his kids, Ted wouldn't have a tale to tell.

Over nine seasons, How I Met Your Mother has acquired an impressive list of celebrity guest appearances.

There was Britney Spears as the dippy dermatologist's assistant obsessed with Ted (Josh Radnor). There was Bryan Cranston as the architect whose buildings always seemed to resemble – how shall we put this delicately? – male anatomy. Even Jane Seymour ditched Dr. Quinn's period attire for the sexy style of Marshall's (Jason Segel) cougar law school professor whom Barney (Neil Patrick Harris) just couldn't tame.

But there's a much smaller circle of stars who've managed to do something even more unique: play themselves. Some became part of long-running gags, others only filmed one-off appearances – but all were legen–wait for it–dary.

We already have our tissues ready for the series finale of How I Met Your Mother on Monday, but this makes it a little easier to bear.

The cast of the show got together for an episode of Inside the Actors Studio on Thursday, and when they did, it was … legendary.

There were lots of laughs, but the best moment came when Neil Patrick Harris and Jason Segel performed an impromptu duet of "Confrontation" from the musical Les Miserables.

Neil Patrick Harris's Latest Role Brings Up 'Homophobic Insecurities' | Neil Patrick Harris

Neil Patrick Harris: Playing Hedwig on Broadway Is Bringing Up Insecurities

Originally posted 03/12/2014 12:50PM

If playing a flamboyant transgender punk rocker sounds out of character for Neil Patrick Harris, you've got company. The star himself admits his upcoming Broadway role in Hedwig and the Angry Inch pushes him outside of his comfort zone – but that's not necessarily a bad thing.

"Hedwig is bringing up a lot of super insecure things within me," the actor tells Out for its April cover story. "I have never thought drag was intoxicating, I've never had a fun drunken Halloween in drag, never been in heels, really." (Notable exception: he ably accepted the Hasty Pudding Man of the Year Award in drag in February, although he donned a more traditional tux while attending a gala for the group Monday night.)

"I've lived my whole life being attracted by masculinity – it’s why I like guys," he also tells the magazine. "I'm not a super effete person, and I have to turn into that, and in doing so it brings up a lot of homophobic insecurities within myself."
