Quotes

[Ellen Pierce, owner of "Love Solutions" matchmaking service, has just threatened to stomp the crap out of Barney if he doesn't leave for his insincere intentions]

Ellen Pierce: [pointing at Ted to sit back down] Not you - you stay.
[looking at Ted's application]

Plot In a Paragraph: After Robin does an on-air report on her, Barney drags Ted to a matchmaking service owned and operated by Ellen Pierce, whose business claim to fame is a 100% success rate in three days. Meanwhile, Marshall and Lily are scared about a creature they see in their apartment, the creature which they can't agree if a mouse or a cockroach. When they get a closer look, they come to an agreement on what it is, which their friends find ridiculous.

Not as funny as the previous episode, but it's enjoyable non the less as poor Ted is told there is nobody out there for him and a frantic Marshal and lily try and catch the mysterious creature.

All the cast do a fine job, and it's a well directed and entertaining television.
