Marshall: What if you decide to go be a painter and then you realize I don’t fit into your life anymore, and three months becomes forever? Can you promise me that that’s not gonna happen?

Lily: Marshall…

Marshall: ‘Cause if you can’t promise me that, we should just break up right now. I’m not gonna wait around for three months just to have my heart ripped out.

Lily: Marshall, I love you.

Marshall: Can you promise me that that’s not gonna happen?

Lily: Pause.

Marshall: No, Lily, we cannot pause this anymore.
