The Apartment

The apartment

First appearance
Location

The Apartment is the place where Ted Mosby, as well as many other members of the main cast, have lived throughout the series. It has a living room, two bedrooms, one bathroom and a kitchen and is located on the third floor; the door says it's number 4C. The apartment also has access to the roof of the building.

HistoryEdit

Marshall and Ted began renting The Apartment together when they moved to NYC after college. Lily wasn't officially living there and had her own apartment, but spent most of her time there anyway. Shortly after Marshall and Lily get engaged Lily moves into The Apartment officially having discovered that her own apartment had been turned into a Chinese restaurant. (The Duel

When Lily and Marshall get married they buy their own place in Dowisetrepla. However, they end up remaining in The Apartment for almost an entire extra year after realizing that the floor in their new apartment is crooked and needed to be fixed. In Intervention everyone packs their stuff to leave The Apartment, as Ted plans to move in with Stella and Marshall and Lily finally move to their new apartment. In the following episode, Shelter Island, Stella leaves Ted at the altar, meaning Ted never moves out of The Apartment. In Not a Father's Day having recently returned from Japan Robin had been sleeping on Marshall and Lily's couch but moves into The Apartment after Ted offers her the extra room. She says she will only be staying for one or two weeks at the most, but she lives there for the better part of the next three years.

In Twin Beds Robin briefly moves out of The Apartment to go live with Don, but just three episodes later in Doppelgangers she breaks up with Don and moves back into The Apartment.

In No Pressure, Robin moves out of The Apartment for good, after Ted professes his love for her and she doesn't reciprocate. In Karma, Ted also moves out of The Apartment, leaving it to Marshall and Lily, who were bored with their life in the suburbs.

In Trilogy Time, it is shown that Marshall is still living in The Apartment with Lily in 2015.

In Last Forever - Part One, deciding that they need more space, Marshall and Lily finally move out of The Apartment in 2016 when Lily is pregnant with her third child. Based on a reference from The Duel, in which Future Ted mentions that someone outside of the group now lives in The Apartment, it can be assumed that this is the last time anyone from the main cast lives in The Apartment.

LocationEdit

The Apartment is right above MacLaren's Pub, the bar where Ted, Marshall, Lily, Robin and Barney hang out and drink beers.

The building is located on the Upper West Side (from which Ted gets his nickname "Teddy Westside") across from the 86th Street subway entrance, as seen in Subway Wars when Lily runs across the street from MacLaren's to the subway entrance. It is close enough to 75th and Columbus for Ted to run there during Robin's remote segment in Purple Giraffe. A very important episode for The Apartment is Intervention, where it is revealed how various damages on the walls and ceiling came to be.

In Zip, Zip, Zip, when Ted and Victoria are discussing their 1 month abstinence from sex, he tells the taxi driver to go to 75th and Amsterdam. However, this could be referring to Ted taking her to Cafe L'amour before going back to The Apartment, seeing as Robin states the restaurant is on 75th and Amsterdam in The Stinson Missile Crisis.

In Subway Wars, Marshall gets a call that Woody Allen is at Gregor's Steakhouse. When Marshall claims he could walk there faster than taking the bus, Ted shows the gang his laptop with Bing directions from MacLaren's Pub to Gregor's Steakhouse. The starting address is: 150 W. 85th Street on the Upper West Side.

Notes and TriviaEdit

  • All members of the gang have lived in The Apartment except Barney.
    • Barney has, however, slept there at least three times: in Murtaugh on a futon, in The Pineapple Incident in the bathroom, and in Blitzgiving with the rest of the non-resident gang in the living room. It has also been shown that while dating Robin, he stayed in The Apartment a lot.
  • The Apartment has housed many guests throughout the series, such as Punchy, Judy Eriksen, Mickey Aldrin, Hammond Druthers, Trudy, and many others. 
  • In Tailgate, Ted and Barney turned The Apartment into a bar named Puzzles. The Apartment also functioned as a bar in Three Days of Snow.
  • One of The Apartment's windows has a fire escape with access to the roof of the building, where Ted and the others have parties, as seen in The Leap, and smoke cigarettes, as seen in Last Cigarette Ever.
  • It is revealed that for eight years, thinking that Ted's toothbrush was the only one in the bathroom, Ted, Marshall, and Lily all shared a toothbrush, with Robin using the same toothbrush for a year while dating Ted.
    • A continuity error occurs in Zip, Zip, Zip, when Lily and Marshall can be seen brushing their teeth at the same time with two different toothbrushes.
  • Ted painted The Apartment twice, once as therapy to get over Robin, and later to get over Stella.
  • There are cameras hidden by Barney in The Apartment.
  • Over the years, The Apartment sustained some damage, as seen in Intervention (Ted chipped the wall with a mace, Barney punched a hole next to the door, the encyclopedia of Ted brought down parts of the wall, and a burning intervention banner caused a scorch mark).
  • No animals/pets have lived in The Apartment, besides the Cockamouse, Missy the goat, and some rabbits stolen by Zoey in Architect of Destruction.
  • The Apartment was the site of at least three sword fights. In The Duel, Marshall fights Ted and accidentally stabs Lily in her shoulder. On April 26, 2013, Ted and Marshall have a sword fight, ruining the dress Lily had picked out for Barney and Robin's rehearsal dinner. On that same day, Lily and Robin have a sword fight, ruining Ted, Marshall, and Barney's $600 bottle of Glen McKenna 30-year Scotch.
