I loved this episode. My favorite thing about it was Barney and Robin having a bro night together. I loved them as a team! They seem to be best fitted friends in this show even all the others are great together as well. The time of them in the bar with Robin helping him to get a girl was great. And I loved him reassuring her that he won't tell Ted she likes him because of a bro code.

Marshall and Lily hiding in the bathroom was cute as well. I don't know why she is worried their romance is gone, after 9 years they seem to be a more in to each other couple than I have ever seen. Of course reality and TV aren't the same
