How I Met Your Mother has always been a favorite TV show of mine. So, naturally, I find myself quoting it regularly. Whether it's a quick "legen—wait for it—dary!" or singing a quick verse of Robin Sparkle's "Let's Go to the Mall," I look for every opportunity to interject with a line from one of my favorite characters.

While matching quotes with the characters who said them and pitting your answers against other Movie Piloters might not be the most scientific means of measuring a person's love of the show, it certainly doesn't hurt! So join me in playing along in a bit of fan trivia to decide who said it!

Note: The GIFs and images included below are not hints and give no indication of who said the quote, they're there solely for aesthetic purposes.
