How I Met Your Mother Finale: The Show Is Just Like Love

To paraphrase Ted and Robin: "Major Warning!" This story contains spoilers about tonight's final episode of How I Met Your Mother

Back in 2005 as How I Met Your Mother debuted, I wrote that it was the Lost of sitcoms – a group of people searching for love and identity while marooned on an island. (Have you ever tried to escape Manhattan during rush hour?) There was plenty of time travel, too. And like Lost, the CBS sitcom bowed out controversially, but as many fans predicted.

"And that, kids, is how I met your mother."

With that line, How I Met Your Mother came to an end on Monday with an hour-long episode that finally wrapped up the story Ted (Josh Radnor) has been telling for nine seasons. While fans have known all along that Ted would meet The Mother (Cristin Milioti) at a train station platform in fictional Farhampton, Long Island, the show's final episode revealed several new twists in the story of the gang: Marshall (Jason Segel), Lily (Alyson Hannigan), Barney (Neil Patrick Harris) and Robin (Cobie Smulders).

Below, we recap the finale's best moments in quotes. Warning: There are a few spoilers!

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.

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.

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."
