The Lemon Law & Other “Mother”-isms

No, I can’t claim credit for what The Lemon Law means on “How I Met Your Mother,” which is about to end its long run on CBS. It has nothing to do with cars that don’t run. It’s a rule introduced to avoid spending too long on a date that is going nowhere. The Lemon Law entitles either party on a date to call off the date within the first five minutes with no repercussions or hard feelings. Just cite Lemon Law and you’re out.
