How do you embed images in your responses from botler?

I'm digging this HipChat bot, and turned a bunch of folks onto using it. However, I see a pretty epic service within Botler in your readme to show a How I Met Your Mother salute gif for terms like general idea, major deal, etc... but

a.) can't figure out how to cleanly embed image/gif without it spitting out the link and then showing the gif

b.) the capture text isn't working as I'd expect

Pasting exported service here and hopefully you can point out my mistakes:
{"name":"himym","event":"room_message","pattern":"[Gg]eneral [Ii]dea|[Mm]ajor [Dd]eal","reply":"\n\n*Salute*\n\n{{$1}}","replyHtml":false,"notify":false,"enable":true}

I figured out how to embed the image- just treat it like html:

<img alt="Embedded Image" width="300" height="220" src=""/>

Close enough:

{"name":"himym","event":"room_message","pattern":"^general(.*)?","reply":"<img alt=\"Embedded Image\" width=\"350\" height=\"250\" src=\"\"/>\n<br>\n<br>\n<b>*Salute*</b>\n<br>\n<b>General {{$1}}</b>","replyHtml":true,"notify":false,"enable":true}
