This running gag was first introduced in Slapsgiving where Ted and Robin would mock others e.g. General knowledge, Kernel stuck in my teeth etc.

EpisodesEdit

SlapsgivingEdit

Future Ted reveals that when he and Robin were dating they had a private joke where they would salute whenever another person used a military rank before another in a sentence (an example being 'Major Payraise'), but since breaking up simply share awkward looks whenever someone does it. Later, over the dinner Bob used the phrase 'major buzzkill', causing Ted and Robin to salute without thinking. As everyone tidies up from the dinner Ted notes there's going to be a 'major clean-up' making everyone unknowingly salute.

BenefitsEdit

Ted and Robin are talking about their "private thing" and salute.
