This is why Neil Patrick Harris' Barney Stinson from How I Met Your Mother is THE best character on TV right now

Yes, we just said that Barnabus "Barney" Stinson is THE best character on TV right now and we're sticking with our word. 

Crazy, you say? Not really. 

Played by Neil Patrick Harris, Barney is one of the biggest reasons why CBS show How I Met Your Mother has garnered as much attention and praise as it has. With his suits, laser tag obsession and mission to sleep with everything hot that moves, Barney tells it like it is, making us laugh and squirm with his brashness and antics.

With the show's final season fast approaching, it is with heavy hearts that we take a look back at some of Barney's finest moments. Oh, don't forget to suit up first...

“Think of me like Yoda, but instead of being little and green I wear suits and I'm awesome. I'm your bro—I'm Broda!”

“In my body, where the shame gland should be, there is a second awesome gland. True story.”

“God, it's me, Barney. What up? I know we don't talk much, but I know a lot of girls call out your name because of me.”

"I only have one rule. For every three 10s you bang, throw a bone to a 5. They're grateful and hard working and let's face it, sometimes you just want to lay there."

"Crazy stories are my thing! You have architecture, Marshall has the law, Lily has art, Robin has pleasing me sexually. You all have a passion that drives you. Well if I have a passion it's taking life and turning it into a series of crazy stories. If you can do that without me, then I don't even know who I am anymore."
