Pretty much New York?

Watching How I Met Your Mother season 3 tonight. Just thought I'd share an exchange from the second episode that is representative of why I love this show:

Ted: "You guys live in New Jersey, not New York? New Jersey?"
Girl #1: "Yeah, but don't worry, it's pretty much New York."
Ted: "Oh. No. Oh no. New Jersey is not pretty much New York. You are not pretty much New Yorkers."
Girl #1: "And how would you know?"
Ted: "Because I live here. Yes, that's right, I live here. We're full of crap, yes. We pretended to be from out of town so we could sleep with you and leave in the morning. But do you know what's even worse than that? Saying you're a New Yorker when you're not. Because this is the greatest city in the world, and you have to earn the right to call yourself a New Yorker. So why don't you girls crawl in the open sewer pipe you call the Holland Tunnel, and flush yourselves back to Pretty Much New York. Because I will do a lot to get laid, but I am NOT going to New Jersey."

Also, another reason: Slap Bet. :)

i just started watching this show. I must say, its probably just a slightly toned down Its Always Sunny in Philadelphia, but probably as deeply fucked up.

Haha yeah I'd have to agree with that. :)
