Storyline

In 2030, Ted admits to his kids that he doesn't remember all the stories from his past, with what he and Marshall call "the pineapple incident" being one of the more fuzzier ones. In late 2005, in the still short time their group of friends has included Robin, she is onto yet another guy (this time a multi-multi-millionaire) while Ted has barely had any women. Barney thinks it's because Ted over-analyzes every situation. So to lower Ted's inhibitions, Barney, Marshall and Lily think it would do Ted some good if he downed all five shots that Carl the bartender has concocted for them. To prove a point, Ted does down all five believing they will have no effect on him. But the next thing he remembers is the next morning waking up in his bed, with a sprained ankle, next to both a pineapple and a brunette woman whose face he can't see as she is face down on the pillow. Marshall, Lily and Barney are only able to fill in a part of the puzzle. As the four go on a quest to figure out the ... Written by Huggo

Another Quality Episode
15 November 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Another quality episode of "How I Met Your Mother" as we head towards the middle of the first season.

Plot In A Paragraph: After sucking down a ton shots at the bar, Ted blacks out. He wakes up the next morning with a sprained ankle, a burned jacket, a phone number written on his arm, a pineapple on his dresser, and an unknown woman face down in his bed. With the help of his friends, They attempts to piece together precisely what happened the night before.

All the gang are playing their roles well now, and it's obvious that they all genuinely get on too.

What's also obvious is that Ted (Josh Radnor) still clearly has feeling for Robin (Cobie Smulders) despite dating his ex Natalie for a spell and hooking up with someone called Trudy in this episode, it's obvious who he wants to be with, despite his denials.
