And what does Mr. Romantic deserve as the perfect accompaniment to his grand gesture of the week (in some wonderfully timed, self-referential scenes)?

A little Love Actually of course.

In this week’s romantic comedy-skewering yet still knowingly cheesy How I Met Your Mother, Ted Mosby got the perfect backup: the beautiful (and easily identifiable) score from one of the most famous romantic comedies of the decade.

Marshall’s tiny B story was fun, Robin’s “also, a bit cheesy” one liners were great and the whole baggage metaphor was really pretty sweet. Oh, and Judy Greer: always fantastic.
