Goofs:
Continuity: While Ted explains his most embarrassing story, "The Re-Return," there are references and 'flashbacks' to the pilot episode. Ted is explaining that later that night after he told Robin that he loved her, there was a lot of drinking and Ted 're-returned' to Robin's apartment while drunk. Obviously the 're-return' was shot specifically for this episode. However, there was one major and several minor mistakes made during the 'flashback' scenes. The simple things were about how crowded the bar was, the lights and neon signs of the bar, the objects on the gang's table, and the tie choice that Ted wore. The major, and very obvious and easily-fixable mistake was Ranjit's shirt. In the pilot, Ranjit wore a cornflower blue jacket. Then, for the re-shoots, he was wearing a deep red long-sleeve polo shirt.See more »
Quotes:
Marshall:[Telling his most embarrassing story] I was stopping by Lily's kindergarten class to say hi, but they were all at recess. I really had to pee, so I went into the class's restroom. It was a-a smaller target than I'm used to, so I figured I should sit down. What I didn't realize was, it was a shared bathroom.
[a kid comes in]
Screaming Boy:[Screaming] AGRHHHHHHHHHHHH!
[Marshall stumbles out of the bathroom and lands face first in front of Lily and the kindergarteners]
Marshall:I wish I'd pulled up my pants.
Lily Aldrin:The kids still call him Funny Butt.

Nei Patrick Harris Is Again the Star, 17 November 2014
Author: slightlymad22 from United Kingdom

For some reason this has a much shorter intro, no photos are showed, just the how's title flying to the screen.

Plot In A Paragraph: The gang gets to meet Victoria during a game night. But the night takes a funny turn when Barney's former love Shannon gives an old tape to Lily which shows the "real" Barney. While watching the tape an embarrassed Barney storms out. When he returns, Barney tells a story about what made him the person he is today. To tell the full story, he blackmails all others into telling their most embarrassing stories.

Whilst I enjoyed seeing Victoria (Ashely Williams) again, and I'm really rooting for them as a couple, this episode is all about Barney Stinson. Once again Neil Patrick Harris delivers the goods as Barney. We learn how he got his catchphrase "Suit Up" when he's handed a flier advertising suits. A pattern had emerged on this show that the best episodes feature Neil Patrick Harris's Barney Stinson heavily. Oh how the Emmys have robbed that man.

The transformation scene is hilarious.

One part I didn't like was the montage at the end, showing that despite the awesomeness of Victoria, Ted is still obsessed with doing things for Robin (and he keeps it a secret from Victoria)
