I doubt they expected to find an actress like Cristin Milioti, who had great chemistry with the whole group.
"Marshall and Lily to me, they're my favorite TV couple, because they really do love each other," Segel said. "There's sort of this formula of a successful TV couple that seems to involve a lot of nagging and a lot of eye-rolling. We've managed to do nine years without nagging or eye-rolling.
"A lot of shows, I wonder why they're actually married. It seems like she lost a bet," Segel continued. “Whereas Marshall and Lily, first of all, they really like to get it on, which I think is really funny and kind of rare. They like each other's jokes and they have a lot of shared, private jokes. It's a real couple, I love it."

Hell, even at this late hour, they could have recognized what they had in Milioti and accepted that that old bit of footage with Lyndsy Fonseca and David Henrie would remain unseen forever (or, at worst, be a special feature to lure people into buying the complete series box set), and that the fans would get over not seeing the kids react to the end of this endless story.
He was never a character that you felt like he'd just walk into a room and heads turn, "There’s Ted!" No, he’s like bumping into furniture all the time. But he’s great, and he wins in the end; he gets both girls."
The one good thing about this finale is that it gives hope to creepy guys everywhere - you know that girl you've been obsessing over forever, who told you in no uncertain terms that she was not into you at all? Hang in there, dude. She'll be yours again.
