Ted mentions that Robin lives in Park Slope. Earlier in season 1 Robin denies living in Park Slope. Robin has not switched apartments, so this is clearly a mistake. See more »


Lily Aldrin: Okay, it's time for bed.
Barney Stinson: What? No. It's 2:30.
Lily Aldrin: Nothing good ever happens after 2:00 a.m.
Barney Stinson: You know, I have found, in my travels... that all the best things in life happen after 2:00 a.m. When I look back at the best stories of my life - the Liberty Bell incident, the little scrape I got in at the Russian Embassy, the almost four-way.
Marshall Eriksen: You never had a four-way.
Barney Stinson: I said "almost." All those things happened after 2:00 a.m; because after 2 AM is when things get- audience say it with me- LEGENDARY.

A So So Episode

Another very so so episode

Plot In A Paragraph: Whilst waiting for Victoria to call, Robin (Cobie Smulders) calls Ted (Josh Radnor) after 2am and asks him to go over, Marshal (Jason Segel) and Lily (Alyson Hannigan) advise him to listen to his mothers advice of "nothing good happens after 2am" upon hearing this Barney (the always fun Neil Patrick Harris) decides to prove that good things do happen after 2am.

Gee I didn't see that coming! Two episodes later Ted and Victoria are no more and he kisses the woman of his dreams Robin. As a fan of Victoria, I was pleased to see her again, even if it's probably the last time we will see her. There is not much to like in this episode. Neil Patrick Harris is always fun as Barney, and I enjoyed every scene he was in, in fact that was the best scene in the episode. Whilst Jason Segel and Alyson Hannigan were also enjoyable in this episode too. Thanks to the ending we can get back to Ted pining for Robin.
