But now it´s time to start talking about his legacy:
First… The Lemon Law
Barney lives by the “Bro Code”, his own code of rules, which includes a lemon law for blind dates. Despite his overall questionable character, according to creator Craig Thomas, Barney is “a pretty fragile character who’s really afraid of being alone. He just wants people to like him, to be important to people, and to have disciples who follow his word.”
What about Dating Lemon Law, the same kind of Lemon Law attorneys in California are cashing in?
Barney Stinson, during first season´s episode eight, inducted the Blind Dating Lemon Law:
I henceforth declare the following- From this moment on, there shall exists in the world of dating and mating a Lemon Law, which for copyright purposes shall be dubbed “The Barney Law.”
It shall opperate on the following conditions: all persons involved in a mutually decided upon date have exactly 5 minutes from the moment of meeting to decide if the date will procede for the rest of the night or not. Within the first five minutes of coming together (high five!) either party can call the date off for any reason.
