Hilarious episode
23 July 2017 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

There were some great moments in this episode: from the explanation of why two crossed swords hang on a wall in Ted and Marshall's apartment, to the discovery that Lilly doesn't live with them and actually has her own apartment (that was subsequently turned into a Chinese restaurant with her furniture and belongings still very much present in the place), and to the "introduction" of Ted's British phone box.
