Graduation Goggles, as featured in The Exploding Meatball Sub, explained by Robin to be a feeling when someone is about to part with something that they thoroughly detested, such as her experience with high school.
This is shown when Ted tries to break up with Zoey, but instead smiles as Sarah McLachlan's "I Will Remember You" plays to a sepia-toned image of Zoey yelling at him.
It also happens when Robin tries to break up with the dog-like Scooby, but instead has images of his also dog-like kissing magically transformed. Graduation goggles is the nostalgic feeling one has about a time or someone in their life when it is about to end, even if the time was completely miserable.
|Robin:||The point is you can't trust graduation goggles. They are just as misleading as beer goggles, bridesmaid goggles and that's just a bulky outdated cell phone in his front pocket goggles.|
