Don't say 'legendary', okay? You're too liberal with the word 'legendary'.

—Ted, Sweet Taste of Liberty

Legendary is a catchphrase commonly used by Barney Stinson to describe the enormity and awesome-ness of a situation or event. However, other members of the gang have used the "Legendary" phrase before, so it is not exclusive to Barney.

Barney often uses this catchphrase together with the line "Wait for it", see that article for more information and quotes.
