[Robin discovers why Ted threw three straight parties in as many nights]

Ted:
Robin, look I didn't invite you to this party to set you up with Carlos. Or the one before that. Or the one before that. [Robin smiles] I threw these parties because I wanted to see you.

Robin:
Well, here I am.

Ted:
There's something here, look, unless I'm crazy.

Robin:
You're not crazy. I-I don't know, Ted, I mean we barely know each other and you're looking at me with that look and it's like-

Ted:
Like what?

Robin:
Like-let's fall in love, and get married and have kids and drive them to soccer practice.

Ted:
I'm not gonna force sports on them unless they're interested.

Robin:
[laughs] It's a great look. But you're looking at the wrong girl.

Ted:
No, I'm not.

Robin:
Yes, you are. I don't wanna get married right now, maybe ever and if we got together I'd feel like I'd either have to marry you or break your heart and-I just couldn't do either of those things. Just like you can't turn off the way you feel.

Ted:
[reaches in jacket] Click. Off. Let's make out.

Robin:
[laughs] What?

Ted:
What? That was the off switch! And I turned it off. I mean sure yes, I wanna fall in love get married blah, blah, blah, but-on the other hand - you, me, the roof.

Robin:
There's no off switch.

Ted:
There is an off switch… and it's off.

Robin:
[smiling] no, it's not.

Ted:
[silence] yes, it is. [draws closer to Ted]

Robin:
No …it's-not.

Ted:
Yes-it is [long kiss with Robin] No it's not. You're right, there's no off switch. God I wish there was an off switch!
