The end is coming for CBS’ “How I Met Your Mother” (HIMYM) and fans cannot help but feel nostalgic about Ted Mosby’s quest in finding “the one.” The HIMYM Season 9 finale, “Last Forever,” will air on Monday, March 31, 2014 at 8:00 p.m. on CBS.

Who could forget the “Have you met Ted?” game? Or, Barney’s “Legen—wait for it—dary”? How about Slapsgiving,? Bro code, ,“Quinntervention,” and Maclaren’s Pub? The show started airing on Sept. 19, 2005. After nine long years of waiting for Ted to tell his kids about how he met their mother, finally, he did.

As a tribute to the show, we here at Movie News Guide will remind you, readers, once more of your beloved “How I Met Your Mother” cast.

Ted Mosby – Josh Radnor plays his character. His full name is Theodore Evelyn Mosby, and he is an architect. He is kind of the loner in the cast as most of the time he is on his own and is constantly searching for the one until he met “The Mother” (Cristin Milioti). The plot focused on his storytelling to his kids about his adventures with the gang and how he met their mother. Throughout the show, he has been in a relationship with Robin, Victoria (Ashley Williams), Stella (Sarah Chalke) and Zoey (Jennifer Morrison).

Favourite quote: “You will be shocked kids, when you discover how easy it is in life to part ways with people forever. That’s why, when you find someone you want to keep around, you do something about it,” said Ted in the “How I Met Your Mother” Season 9 Episode 21: “Gary Blauman.”

Barney Stinson – Neil Patrick Harris plays his character. Barney is the person responsible for “Legen—wait for it—dary,” Bro code, “Have you met Ted?” and accepting challenges. He works in Goliath National Bank, though it is not really clear what he does there. He is also known for his porn collection and suits and for sleeping with  almost half the women in New York. Barney is the epitome of a playboy bachelor. Who would have thought that he would settle down with Robin? In the HIMYM series, he has been in a relationship with Quinn (Becki Newton) and Nora (Nazanin Boniadi).

Favourite quote: “When I’m sad, I stop being sad and be awesome instead,” said Barney to Ted and Robin in the How I Met Your Mother Season 2 Episode 1: “Where Were We?”

Robin Scherbatsky – Cobie Smulders plays her character. Her full name is Robin Charles Scherbatsky Jr. Robin is also known as Robin Sparkles in her younger days. She used to be a pop star in Canada and has appeared in a Canadian educational show. She works as a news anchor. Among the group, Robin is like Barney’s female version. She dates but never thought of settling down. Moreover, she does not like kids. There was an episode where she broke up with her then boyfriend Kevin (Kal Penn) because she could never conceive a child. She also had a relationship with Ted. In the end, everything went well as Robin ended up with Barney.

Favourite quote: “I am never gonna have closure. Closure doesn’t exist,” said Robin in the How I Met Your Mother Season 6 Episode 3: “Unfinished.”

Lily Aldrin – Alyson Hannigan plays her character. Lily works as a preschool teacher. She has known Marshall and Ted since their college days. She is Marshall’s Lilypad. She has been with Marshall throughout the series. They have a son named Marvin and are going to have a baby girl. She is somehow the wisest of the group as she is able to give sound advice to the gang.

Favorite quote: “There are certain things in life where you know it’s a mistake but you don’t really know it’s a mistake because the only way to know that it really is a mistake is to make that mistake and go, ‘Yup, that was a mistake.’ So really, the bigger mistake would be to not make the mistake because then you’ll go about your whole life not knowing whether it was a mistake or not,” said Lily in the How I Met Your Mother Season 1 Episode 21: “Milk”

Marshall Eriksen – Jason Segel plays his character. Marshall is a lawyer and now a judge. He is Ted’s best friend since college days and Lily’s Marshmallow. Marshall always wanted to become an environmental lawyer. However, due to the rigors of raising a family, he chose to work at Goliath National Bank, but he left in the succeeding episodes. He gives much importance to family, as reflected in his scenes with his own family.

Favorite quote: “Being in a couple is hard. And committing, making sacrifices, it’s hard. But if it’s the right person, then it’s easy. Looking at that girl and knowing she’s all you really want out of life, that should be the easiest things in the world. And if it’s not like that, then she’s not the one. I’m sorry,” said Marshall in the How I Met Your Mother Season 1 Episode 11: “The Wedding.”

The  “How I Met Your Mother” cast will be sorely missed once HIMYM goes off the air soon. Although some people are excited to know how the series will end, a lot of people are also dreading it because they will finally bid goodbye to “How I Met Your Mother.” But, it’s not over until it’s actually over, so don’t miss the “How I Met Your Mother” Season 9 finale, “Last Forever,” when it airs on March 31, 2014 at 8:00 p.m. on CBS.
