  • It's Thanksgiving 2005. Marshall is looking forward to going back to his hometown of St. Cloud, Minnesota to spend the holidays with his family, who he hasn't seen in close to a year. Lily, on the other hand, isn't quite looking forward to accompanying him. It's not that Lily doesn't like Marshall's family, but a Midwest lifestyle is not what Lily is used to. A specific physical attribute of the Eriksen clan is also starting to play on Lily's mind, especially as she thinks she may be pregnant. Meanwhile, Ted wants to see a true smile of thanks this holiday, and as such decides to volunteer at a shelter for Thanksgiving dinner. Since Canadians celebrate Thanksgiving a month and a half earlier, Robin, who has nothing else to do, accompanies Ted. At the shelter, they are surprised to find Barney volunteering there, he who is a regular fixture and is considered the ultimate volunteer, that is until Ted and Robin find out why he's been doing this volunteer work. The volunteer experience isn't quite what Ted was hoping, so it isn't until the end of the night when Barney asks for a unusual favor to place that smile of thanks on a needy person's face that Ted sort of gets what he was hoping.
