As she tells him her name, he says that he is from the future, proving it with a prediction with a little help from his friends. He has already asked Robin to slap Ted, which she does, making the girl believe that old Barney isn’t lying. Then he tells the girl that in order to stop his younger self from stopping global warming in the future, she must sleep with him. He rushes back to his time machine and returns after removing his makeup, indicating that the plan worked.

9. “The Scuba Driver”

To achieve it, Barney first reveals the playbook to Lily. He then uses a play on one of her friends. This makes Lily angry, and she tries to sabotage him while he tries to pull a play called “The Scuba Diver.” She tells the girl the complete truth about the playbook. Later on, Barney tells Lily about his insecurities, which leads her to convince the girl in return. And hence, the goal of Barney going out with the girl is fulfilled.

10. “Do you like the magic”

Neil Patrick Harris is a trained magician, and his talent is integrated into the show. So the trick goes like this: He first asks a girl whether she likes the magic of throwing and catching a fireball and then reveals her exact responses written on his hand, making for a magical pickup line.

With these lines, Harris just needs to look back and learn from his past to find someone for his Michael Lawson. Watch Uncoupled and find out how he deals with his pickup situation.
