Storyline

It's New Year's Eve 2005, and Ted wants to pull out all the stops for his friends. He decides to rent a limo (driven by their old cabbie friend Ranjit) which will take them to each of their five chosen parties in three hours, and return to the best one by midnight to ring in the new year. They are on a tight time schedule so there is no room for change or improvisation from the plan. Not included in their night is Robin as she is planning on spending it with her new boyfriend Derek. But in her place is Ted's date, the unusually friendly Marybeth. The night starts off well, but one wrench after another another is thrown into the plan, some which are definite nuisances, while others they gladly accommodate. But even those in the latter category don't always come off as they anticipate, especially when it involves one of the group needing to head off alone. Will they be at their dream party at midnight and will they all be together? Written by Huggo

Goofs

During the scene when the gang thinks they see Moby on the street, the backseat of the limo has, from left to right, Robin, Ted, and Marybeth - Ted's co-worker and date for New Year's. Then, all of a sudden, Ted is to the far right at the window talking to "Not Moby," Robin is in the middle and then Marybeth, Ted's date, on the far left - the furthest seat away from Ted.

Half Way Point Of The First Season
15 November 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Half way point of the first season is a fair episode, NPH is a lot of fun as always, and we see Ranjit again, for the first time since the pilot episode.

Plot In A Paragraph: It's New Year's Eve 2005, and Ted wants to pull out all the stops. He hires a limo (driven by their old cabbie friend Ranjit) which will take them to five parties in three hours, and return to the best one by midnight to ring in the new year. They are on a tight time schedule so there is no room for change or improvisation. Not included in their night is Robin as she is planning on spending it with her new boyfriend Derek. But in her place is Ted's date, the friendly Marybeth. The night starts off well, but one hitch after another another is thrown into the plan. Will they be at their dream party at midnight and will they all be together?

We hear a lot of Bon Jovi in this episode as the first song on Barney's psych up CD is "You Give Love a Bad Name" by the band.

And once again, it's obvious that Ted (Josh Radnor) still clearly has feeling for Robin (Cobie Smulders) despite dating his ex Natalie for a spell, hooking up with someone called Trudy, the previous episode and having a date with him here, it's obvious who he wants to be with, despite his repeated denials.
