Henrietta
Portrayed by:
First appearance:
Ted is at MacLaren's telling the gang about this woman, Tiffany. She says she's really into him, but can't be with him "right now." The gang sees through her ruse, telling Ted that he's been "hooked," a euphemism for stringing someone along until they meet someone better.

Everyone has an example: Marshall did a high school classmate's homework and was her "secret boyfriend", Robin allows her pre-morning show cameraman to pamper her, and Lily's high school flame, Scooter (David Burtka), works at her school as cafeteria staff, where she doesn't exactly tell him that a romantic relationship is impossible.

Ted refuses to believe that he has been hooked, and continues waiting for Tiffany. When she shows up to the bar with her co-workers, Barney is excited to see that she and all her friends are pharmaceutical representatives, which he calls the "hot-chick" profession of their generation (like the nurse or stewardess was in the past).

All the while, Ted himself has "hooked" Henrietta, a librarian from Columbia. Henrietta treats Ted just like he treats Tiffany, even assembling an elegant dinner when he drops by. Ted is just as dismissive of Henrietta as Tiffany is of him. Ted is invited to go to a wedding with Tiffany, which he sees as a sign of commitment, so he meets her in the room with champagne. However she enters with the best man, the guy who has "hooked" her. Ted leaves, intent on making sure Henrietta doesn't feel the same heartbreak.

Unfortunately, he took the best man's jacket by accident, which had the wedding ring inside. Bending over at Henrietta's door to tie his shoes, the ring falls out, and Henrietta opens the door to see Ted down on his knee, in a tuxedo, with a ring in his hand. She says yes, and introduces him to her visiting parents. Ted explains what has happened and that they will never be together.

Meanwhile, Marshall tries to get Lily to let Scooter know she is never going to be with him, but she is immobilized by Scooter's puppy-dog eyes. Marshall uses Barney's teacup pig (in a cute blanket) to train Lily to resist Scooter. Eventually, it works, and the two head down to the cafeteria, but even though Lily is able to tell Scooter it will never happen, Marshall himself can't resist Scooter's charm, telling him to just wait until he is dead.

Henrietta is a librarian at Columbia University that was infatuated with Ted during Ted is at MacLaren's telling the gang about this woman, Tiffany. She says she's really into him, but can't be with him "right now."

Marshall uses Barney's teacup pig (in a cute blanket) to train Lily to resist Scooter. Eventually, it works, and the two head down to the cafeteria, but even though Lily is able to tell Scooter it will never happen, Marshall himself can't resist Scooter's charm, telling him to just wait until he is dead.. She would cuddle with him, share chocolate cake and give him foot rubs.Unfortunately, Ted did not reciprocate these feelings, who felt that they were just friends. When the rest of the gang told Ted how Henrietta was in love with him, he denied it, and decided to spend the night hanging out with Henrietta, as friends, to prove them wrong. However, as soon as Ted arrived at her apartment, she told him (under her breath) that she loved him. She also offered him a foot rub, prepared a huge feast (complete with ice sculpture) for him, and brought her parents to meet him (who initially didn't believe Ted existed).When Tiffany calls Ted, he quickly leaves Henrietta. However, later that night he realizes that Henrietta really is in love with him. In order to end her infatuation and spare her feelings, he returns to her apartment to tell her they'll never be together. Waiting for the door to open, Ted bends on one knee to tie his shoe, and picks up a ring that falls out of his jacket. Opening the door, Henrietta thinks Ted is proposing, and quickly shouts "Yes!".She pulls him inside, and her parents congratulate the two of them on their engagement. Ted considers marrying her simply out of awkwardness, but instead takes her aside and tells her he never wants to be with her. Then she asks if they're still getting married.
