Bass Player Wanted[edit]

If the LOQ's been fulfilled and one is replaced with a more sensible and notable quote, it should be left as is and any editors who got a problem with that should discuss it here instead of responding with improper albeit stupid edit summaries. --Eaglestorm (talk) 03:49, 5 January 2014 (UTC)

Okay Eaglestorm, let's have a talk about this. We are talking about quotes from episode Bass Player Wanted (9.13).
The current quote already there is "The Mother: There are real villains in this world, but they don’t always get real justice, do they? You wanna believe karma is gonna get ‘em, but karma doesn’t always come through. I guess you have to accept that sometimes in life you just don’t get that knock-out punch.".
We are debating between my quote - "Barney: You’re moving to Chicago? Is that even a real place? It’s a style of pizza. Ted, you can’t live in pizza."
and between your quote - "Barney: So, you're moving to Chicago. Ted: I'm moving to Chicago. Barney: Why? I know Marshall and Lily might leave, but it's only a year. In the meantime, we'll still see each other all the time. You, me, Robin ... [sees Ted's glum face] Oh. Ted: I need a new start. Barney: I'm gonna miss you. Ted: I'll miss you so much. [hugs Barney]"
My point is that both quotes get the same point across - Barney finding out that Ted is moving to Chicago, However my quote has a humour element to it, while yours is all dramatic. As we already have a dramatic quote (The Mother's) and this is a comedy show, in my eyes the humourous quote is easily the better choice.
UDScott, you are welcome to give your thoughts too.
