Pilot” is the pilot episode of American television sitcom How I Met Your Mother, which premiered on CBS on September 19, 2005. It was written by series creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas, and directed by Pamela Fryman[1] The pilot takes place in 2030, as a future Ted Mosby (Voiced by Bob Saget) is telling his kids the story of how he met their mother. It flashes back to 2005 to a younger Ted (Josh Radnor) who meets Robin Scherbatsky (Cobie Smulders), a reporter who he becomes smitten for. Meanwhile, Ted’s lawyer friend Marshall Eriksen (Jason Segel) plans on proposing to his girlfriend Lily Aldrin (Alyson Hannigan), a kindergarten teacher.

The episode introduces several of the show’s storytelling tools, including the framing device of future Ted as the narrator, his children, and many flashbacks to the past, present, and future. Future Ted reveals early the ending of a possible relationship story when he tells his children that Robin is not the mother, but “Aunt Robin”. When asked if he regretted revealing that Robin ultimately becomes Ted’s platonic friend in the pilot episode, series creator Craig Thomas explains they stick by the decision because they didn’t want the show to be about “will they or won’t they” like Friends and that, despite their chemistry, it would have been criminal for Ted to decide he was ready to find someone and to have it happen so quickly. He and co-creator Carter Bays said that the show is about how “Ted meets the perfect woman, and it’s [still] not his final love story.”

Bays and Thomas, who had previously become writers for the Late Show with David Letterman, based the show off their time in New York City with their friends. With Ted being based on Bays and Marshall and Lily based on Thomas and his wife. The interior shots for the episode was filmed at the CBS Radford in Los Angeles, making it the only episode of the show to be filmed at the studio.

The pilot received generally positive reviews from television critics. It was viewed by 10.94 million viewers.


In 2030, Ted Mosby (voiced by Bob Saget) is telling his teenaged children the story of how he met their mother. The story flashes back to 2005, where 27-year-old Ted helps his best friend Marshall Eriksen prepare to propose to his girlfriend of nine years, Lily Aldrin.

At MacLaren’s pub, Ted confides to his friend Barney Stinson that Marshall’s engagement has made him realize that he wants to get married. Barney insists that Ted should remain single so that he can continue being his wingman. Ted then sees Robin Scherbatsky across the bar and is instantly smitten. Ted asks her out to dinner, but she says that she will be out of town for a week. Ted asks her to dinner the following night, and she accepts.

Ted and Robin hit it off, and she then invites Ted to her apartment. Just as Ted is about to make his move, however, Robin is called away. Back at MacLaren’s, Ted’s friends tell him that he should have kissed Robin before she left. Ted, accompanied by the gang, goes to her apartment, after stopping by the restaurant where they had their first date and stealing the blue French horn that she had admired. Barney questions the legitimacy of the “Olive Theory”; he had seen Marshall eat an entire platter of olives. Marshall explains that he lied to Lily in the hopes of having a relationship with her. Barney thinks Marshall is subconsciously scared of getting married, but Marshall disagrees. Marshall tells Lily he likes olives and she is not upset.

Robin and Ted resume their date. Just as they are about to kiss, however, Ted tells her that he is in love with her, destroying his chances with her. After a lingering goodbye, he returns to MacLaren’s with the gang.

Future Ted tells his children, “And that’s the story of how I met… your Aunt Robin”. Confused, the kids say that they thought that it was the story of how he met their mother and Ted simply says, “I’m getting to that”.
