The HIMYM Corrupt A Wish Game
Posted Sep 21, 2007 @ 11:26 AM
This is a simple, yet surprisingly fun, and addictive game: Someone makes a wish such as, "I wish Ted had never dated Robin." And the next person corrupts this wish....for example, "Granted! Instead, Ted hooks up with Lily while she and Marshall are broken up and Marshall never speaks to them again."
Then the person who "granted" the above wish makes one of their own, and so on.
I'll start us off with....
I wish Lily and Marshall had gotten married in Atlantic City

I wish Robin had been a star outside Canada as well, leading to random people recognizing her on the streets of New York and routinely asking her whether she'd like to go to the mall.Today.

I wish Robin and Barney had slept together in "Zip, Zip, Zip."

I wish Ted had met the woman who was supposed to be his perfect match instead of ditching her for Robin and her tiger striped hair.

I wish Trudy from 'The Pineapple Incident' hadn't climbed out the window and then Ted dates her instead of Victoria.

I wish that Marshall and Lily had never broken up.

I wish that Robin HAD done porn....in addition to being a teenage pop star.

I wish that Lily was taller than Marshall.

I wish Ted never told Robin he was in love with her.

I wish Ted had met the Slutty Pumpkin
They remain together to do a "long distance thing" but, the very first time "the gang" hops a plane to visit her, it crashes on some weird island so we spend the duration of the show watching Barney try to use his powers of Awesome to defeat the mysterious island natives, know to us as "The Others".
BTW, I'd totally watch that

However, the Slutty Pumpkin turns out to be played by Maggie Wheeler (Janice from Friends) and the character is actually voiced in the same manner and she appears on every episode for the next season... laughing.
I wish Buffy Summers had never come to Sunnydale -- no wait, wrong show ;>
I wish Sandy Rivers would come back on the show.

I wish Barney would fall in love.

I wish that Penelope (of rain dance fame) would make another appearance.
Posted Sep 28, 2007 @ 10:06 AM
Penelope comes back but she's over Barney and has realized she is bisexual.
She shows up and spends all her time hitting on Robin and the show loses it's unique voice and falls back on demeaning lesbian jokes rather than being innovative and original because that becomes the new focus of the show -- will Robin experiment or won't she.
I wish that Barney's mother comes to town for an episode.

I wish something HAD happened between Lily and Barney, the night they fell asleep together.
Posted Sep 28, 2007 @ 12:37 PM
But both characters try to pretend it never happened until the show gets a new writer (fired from Days of Our Lives) and the rest of the season is about Lily being pregnant and the never-ending question "Who's the father?"
I wish that Joss Whedon would appear as a guest-star in a new episode.

I wish the Fiero had made it to 200,000 miles.

On mile 200,001 Ted and Marshall are hit by a Mack Truck and the only way to save them is to put Ted's brain into Marshall's body. The resulting Tershall beast can never find happiness and murders the gang and himself in a terrible Law and Order Crossover Event.
I wish Barney's brother James would come back.

I wish Ted and the coat check girl would run into each other, and start dating.
Posted Nov 1, 2007 @ 1:34 PM
Coat check girl turns out to be an axe murderer and tries to kill Barney. Barney escapes just in the nick of time, but converted to Born Again Christianity by his near death experience and spends the rest of his days preaching to the gang and disapproving of their sinning lifestyles.
I wish that Barney and Robin would get together and have a tiny Robinacle.

This little Robinacle, has an Electra-y complex, and murders Robin, then tries to boink Barney, leaving him, his libido and his Barnacle scarred for life.
I wish Lily and Robin would get together.
Posted Mar 7, 2008 @ 4:13 PM
But Marshall is so upset he destroys them all
I wish Barney would stop wearing suits
Posted Mar 7, 2008 @ 9:08 PM
But Barney ends up going back to Whiny!Barney! that we saw in The Yips. Destroying one of the best characters on TV.
I wish Ted had gone on that date with the girl from the dating service in Milk.

I wish that Lily and Marshall's apartment wasn't slanted and did have a racist ghost.

I wish Ted had gotten together with the dermatologist he found while snooping in the matchmaker's office.

However, Ted overloves her and she leaves. In an ironic dermatological twist of fate, Ted then comes down with a horribly rare and disfiguring skin condition that the dermatologist refuses to treat and blacklists him against all other dermatologists in New York, knowing Ted's refusal to leave New York and go to such places as New Jersey. Ted becomes ugly permanently because he can't be treated and in an anti-Beauty-and-the-Beast-like twist, when he and the Mother meet, she can't stand to look at him and refuses to be with him. Ted actually ends up alone and the kids he is telling this incredibly long story to are actually figments of his imagination.
I wish Ted had never tried to cheat on Victoria with Robin.
Posted May 5, 2009 @ 5:51 PM
Victoria and Ted continue their long distance relationship until Victoria has an affair and Ted gets crazy jealous and sleeps with a random stranger and gets Herpes. He doesn't live happily ever after.
I wish Marshall and Lily did have that baby.
Posted May 19, 2009 @ 4:28 PM
But it turns out to be octuplets and HIMYM becomes Jon & Kate Plus Eight, and Lily and Marshall can't handle it, get divorced and take 4 kids a piece (a la 'Parent Trap') vowing never to see each other again.
I wish Barney and Robin would get married in a big church wedding, and run a B&B in New Hampshire.
Posted May 19, 2009 @ 9:47 PM
However, Ted is so jealous over the fact that Barney & Robin, of all people, get married before he does that he stops talking to them. Marshall & Lily have more history with Ted, so they stick with him. Barney & Robin feel awful about losing Marshall & Lily & Ted (plus, the Portugese government is looking for Barney and he needs to get out of town), so they move to Vermont and open an inn. (Marshall & Lily want to go up and visit, but going to a B&B means getting up early; they'd just rather stay at home.) The Vermont inn is great for awhile, and there are all kinds of kooky characters, with a dim handyman, a spoiled-rich-girl-turned-maid, and 2 brothers named Darryl. Eventually, though, Barney wakes up next to Suzanne Pleshette and the whole thing was a dream.
I wish Lily would allow Marshall to get his motorcycle.

I wish Ted's parents would come back.
