The Dobler-Dahmer Theory

1,017legendary pages on this wiki

The Dobler-Dahmer Theory is devised by Ted Mosby. In P.S. I Love You, Ted explains to his gang, that

"If both people are into each other, then a big romantic gesture works: Dobler, but if one person isn't into the other, the same gesture comes off serial-killer crazy: Dahmer."

This further explains by applying this theory on how Marshall asked Lily out by singing her a song he wrote, since Wesleyan University. He gets loose himself since he was charmed by Jeanette finding him, that she is a Dobler, but turns out to be a Dahmer.

Notes and TriviaEdit

  • The Theory is a reference to Lloyd Dobler from the late 1980's romantic comedy film, Say Anything, and Jeffrey Dahmer, an infamous serial killer.
