#Quote
1[on a unique production style employed in filming 'How I Met Your Mother'' without an audience ] We get to decide, on a scene-to-scene, moment-to-moment basis, whether we're a broad comedy or a nuanced chamber piece. Also, when you have an audience you start putting in too many penis jokes in the show, because those always get the huge laughs. We do enough penis jokes already without an audience egging them on.
