"There is a word in German: Lebenslangerschicksalsschatz. And the closest translation would be ’Lifelong Treasure of Destiny.’ And Victoria is wunderbar, but she is not my Lebenslangerschicksalsschatz. She is my Beinaheleidenschaftsgegenstand, you know? It means ’the thing that is almost the thing that you want, but it’s not quite.’"

  • Just out of curiosity is the name of the show different in other languages as well? Cause in Chinese, the direct translation of the show becomes "The Romantic History/Story of My Parents" 老爸老妈的浪漫史 Edit: Thanks for all the replies. This has turned into an interesting comment thread 😊. Edit (again): Apparently, there are two other titles of the show in Chinese which I just learned from the comments. One is "Guy Chasing Love" 追愛總動員 and the other being "The Search for Mom" 寻妈记. Because some tv networks think the first title was too long and not that great so they made up a different one. Who knew huh? 😂 [Part 2] for the ones I missed... Other edited HIMYM videos

Here's what he wanted to say: le-bens-langer Schick-sals-schatz (he pronounced schickschalschatz). Well, the description already says that it is not right. No offense😁😅 Anyway, it was a funny series!

  • tho Klaus was a joke. Like he could kind of pull off a German accent when he was talking English but as soon as he talked German his American accent was so thick that it became immensely clear he did not speak the language well at all. Also basically every German term they pretend is common is actually nonexistent, it's just a bunch of words put together, but I guess that is the joke.

    • No. It's similar looking. But I believe it leans more toward talk. While the sign for Bitch would show all the fingers together instead of spread out and from the mouth instead of the chin. He signs it a little fast for me, so it's possible I misunderstood. I'm not an expert if anyone wants to correct me. But I don't believe he said bitch or that anyone would think that's what he said.
