Everyone's Favorite Girlfriend is Returning to "How I Met Your Mother"

By Courtney Enlow | Trade News | July 25, 2013 | Comments ()


And that is, of course, Robin’s best girlfriend, Patrice, on How I Met Your Mother!


Ellen D. Williams announced with a tweeted photo that she’s back in the loving arms of Robin Sherbatsky and co. for the final season. As I would be thrilled with a spinoff series called “Robin Yells at Patrice for a Full 24-Episode Pickup That Also Reruns as Much as ‘Who Wants to Be a Millionaire’ Did in its Prime,” this news pleases me greatly.

Let us celebrate Patrice in all her Patriceyness!

    I know I'm beating a dead horse since I bring this up every time HIMYM is discussed, but it's stuff like this that makes me confused by people that hate Ted but still like the other characters. Ted has issues but he's a sweet guy. Is a bit of pretentious douchery from Ted really that much worse than the bitchtastic meanness we see here on display from Robin? Or the meddling shrewish behavior we see from Lilly? Or the utter misogyny from Barney? Or the... um... hm. Okay, Marshall is cool too. A show solely about the Marshall-Ted bromance is actually something I'd probably enjoy a lot.

  • Welldressed

    In the series finale, it shall be revealed that Marshall is the mother.

  • Ian Fay

    Sigh, Victoria's still my favorite, even after what they did to her and Ted last season.

  • Zen

    Not the mother? I feel as if a Baby Sinclair gif would be appropriate here.

  • ZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

  • bleujayone

    I'm waiting for the day Patrice finally gets fed up with Robin's bullshit and just hauls off and pimp-cuffs her in much the same way Marshall slaps Barney. My vote would be the flying slam-dunk version. After which I'd like their co-workers to claim they saw nothing as a way of counterbalancing all the times they silently stood back and did nothing. After which any time Robin starts to get shrill Patrice needs only raise her slapper and watch Robin squeak in cutting herself off mid-sentence.

    ...As long as I'm dreaming, I'd also like a pony. And some Thin Mints.

  • Yes, to this. I am so over how Robin abuses Patrice.

  • Maguita NYC

    The universe answered.

  • lillie

    God I'm so over this show.

    I started off a this show's biggest fan. I raved on it, told all my friends to watch it (sorry guys). And then....slowly...that love faded and I grew to despise all the characters I had once loved. Chalk it up to bad writing or just drawing out a story that could have (should have) ended seasons ago. I just don't care anymore. The characters, all of them, now just grate on my last nerve. Jason Segal should've stuck to his guns and put this show out of it's misery.

  • apsutter

    I'm right there with you. Watched it from the first episode and LOVED it! Had to worry every damned season that it was going to get cancelled while badgering all my loved ones to watch it. Then it starts getting huge ratings and turns to absolute shite. We deserved better than the last two seasons, that's for sure. The video from comic con gives me hope that this next season will end strong though.

  • Maguita NYC

    Lillie cutie, I upvoted your original message because I agree with you. Heck, most people watching this show, up to a point, also agree with you.

    However, it was beyond my control. My snark forcibly flexed my fingers over keyboard and snarled. That's what Pajiba does to you, it makes your fingers uncontrollably snarl. You should run for your life.

  • lillie

    oh, I wasn't offended....I love your snarky comments. Just had to explain how this show infuriates me on how far it has slid from the great show it once was. Carry on with the snarkiness, it's why I've been coming to this site for years.

  • Wait... the woman with mad whip skills is blaming a pop-culture web site for her proclivity toward meanness? That's it people, anything goes!

  • Maguita NYC

    Why would I ever be made responsible for my actions? The crazy things you say at times.

    Why I was a shy demure wallflower before landing on Pajiba. A stuttering, mumbling (well that hasn't really changed) shy wallflower.

    Over a year later, 2 wives, one fiancé, and uncontrollable urges, I now understand what Pajiba had done to/for me.

    Let it out, tell me what has it done to you?

  • I now want to see a comment diversion of the ways Pajiba has changed us/our lives.

  • lillie

    Well, for many hours on any given day, it renders me completely unproductive. My kids, the needy bastards, wait patiently for their next meal, the house goes to shambles, work is shunned, all as I sit with my laptop and hit refresh. over and over again....

  • Maguita NYC

    Aaah yes, the WTF-I-was-only-here-for-a-few-minutes reality check.

    I wish I empathize, but as Pajiba goes, I rather Freudenschade with glee!

  • Maguita NYC

    Quick send your suggestion to MRS J!

  • Sara_Tonin00

    I mostly like Robin, and the yelling is kinda funny...but the whole Patrice thing shows Robin as such a bully.

  • competitivenonfiction

    As much as I like the show, none of these people (except Marshall) are people I'd invite to a barbecue.

  • IngridToday

    it's probably why she has no friends.

  • Jakesalterego

    Robin yelling at Patrice for all of her niceties is the moment when I realized I no longer wanted Robin to have a happy ending.

  • Jakesalterego

    I hope whoever downvoted me is belittled for all of the good work they do in life. The next time you try to console someone, I hope they spit in your face.

  • God Of Bal-Sagoth

    It's your ability to modestly and patiently absorb mild, anonymous criticism on wholly unimportant topics that I think I admire most.

  • Jakesalterego

    I regret nothing.

  • Francis Somera

    I agree. Robin bullying Patrice is not the least bit entertaining to me.

  • Tinkerville

    Well, that escalated quickly.

  • Repo

    Taking the sitcom a bit seriously this morning, eh?

  • Tinkerville

    I'd like to see a HIMYM and Avengers crossover with Agent Maria Hill trying to help superheroes and being forced to stop and yell at Patrice in the middle of it all.
