here's a fine line between love and hate, which is evident for the gang in the lead up to Valentine's Day 2010. Ted uses the analogy of the picture that seen one way looks like a duck ("love" in most of their minds, except for Marshall), and seen another way looks like a rabbit ("hate"). To Robin, her co-anchor Don is a rabbit, so she is perturbed when she thinks his invitation to a Valentine's Day party at his place is a date. To Ted, all he can see around him are rabbits. He feels he doesn't have any problem attracting women, but it's choosing the duck with which he has the problem. So he decides for this Valentine's Day, he's going to leave the choosing of his duck to who he sees as the ultimate duck choosers, Marshall and Lily (since they both found each other). And Barney thinks that his self-advertising sign with his phone number shown during the Super Bowl is a certain way that he will have his choice of a duck for Valentine's. His problem may not be finding a duck, but thinking that there's a better duck out there.
