I wish I could find another part of that episode, the show ending (that was often hacked off in syndication) where Barney explains to Andy how easy it is to remember dates.

Something like this:

"Take 1776, for example. The first number, one, is easy to remember 'cause it's the first number in the alphabet. Then you got lucky number 7. Then you got 7 again, which is easy because you just remembered 7. Last, there's 6. 7 minus 1 is 6. 1776!"

Andy replies "wouldn't it be easier to just remember 1776?"

Barney gets snappy "well if you want to do everything the easy way you'll never learn anything!"
