Room 208

Elaborate Burn

Jason Segel: I pitched a story to [the writers of How I Met Your Mother] that they thought was ridiculous.

Jon Stewart: Let’s hear it.

Segel: I thought in the final episode it should’ve been – should be, “and that’s how I met your mother,” and then the windows should open – ’cause it’s the future – and it should just be, like, a post-apocalyptic world.

Stewart: *laughter*

Segel: Like –

Stewart: I like that!

Segel: *imitates gunfire*

Stewart: Right!

Segel: But they – they thought that was not romantic.

Stewart: Not roman…? That is how every TV show should end!
