Quotes

Clerk: [When Lily is buying a pregnancy test] Happy Thanksgiving.
Lily: [Upset] Happy Thanksgiving. As in check out the chick buying the knock-up test everybody, wonder what must be going through her head. Yeah, well, since you asked, a family of mayonnaise-guzzling giants is trying to suck me into their suburban nightmare. And there's a solid chance that I have an Eriksen the size of a 15-pound turkey growing inside of me.
Clerk: You know the Eriksen's?

A Return To Form
15 November 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A return to form for "How I Met Your Mother" and once again it's all down to one man. And that man is Neil Patrick Harris, take a bow sir.

Plot In A Paragraph: It's Thanksgiving and while Lily (Alyson Hannigan) and Marshall (Jason Segel) visit his family in Minnesota, and an emotional Lily has few problems and is unsure about how her future with Marshall will look like. Robin (Cobie Smulders) and Ted (Josh Radnor) want to volunteer at a homeless shelter kitchen. Surprisingly, They find Barney (a fun Neil Patrick Harris) at the kitchen, who has secretly been doing volunteer work for the past few years.

At the end in the strip club, we learn the mother's name is Tracy.
