Storyline

After a month of long-distance-relationship with Victoria, she's already sent Ted three care packages full of stuff he likes, but he hasn't sent her any. Marshall works in Barney's office and doesn't like it all or the people he works with, but Barney talks him once again into keeping the job. Marshall decides that it must be easier to work in the office if he adapts to the people he is working with and gets some "get psyched" training from Barney. Written by Sab

Goofs

While in Germany, Victoria is supposed to call Ted at "11pm". Due to the time difference between Germany and NYC that would make it 5am in Germany, and thus a highly unlikely time for her to call. See more »

Quotes

Ted Mosby: [after getting an ominous-sounding e-mail from Victoria] So she's going to dump me. Has anyone ever said, "Listen, I've been thinking," and then follow it up with something good? It's not like: Listen, I've been thinking, Nutter-Butters are an underrated cookie. What else can it be? What could she possibly have to say to me that she couldn't write in an e-mail?
Robin Scherbatsky: I cut off all my fingers?
