  • 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.

  • Marshall's path to environmental law started when he was ten, when he read a book by anthropologist Dr. Aurelia Birnholz-Vazquez, who wrote about her year living with apes in Cameroon. That path was later cemented when, at a lecture, she answered a question of his about his quest to live with the apes like her when he grew up. So he sees his internship with Altrucell, the environmentally unfriendly company that Barney works for, as a small blip in that path. His life at Atrucell gets worse when he meets his co-workers, all jerks cut from the same cloth. Marshall justifies his next move concerning Atrucell as an homage to Dr. Birnholz-Vazquez, but is he really deluding himself, especially after his move takes an unexpected turn in his own mind? Meanwhile, Ted has received yet another care package from Victoria in Germany, the third in a month, while he hasn't sent her anything yet. He gets advice on what to do to reciprocate Victoria's gestures from Robin, who is still hiding the fact that she likes him. As Ted progresses in trying to maintain the increasingly difficult long distance relationship, Robin makes an unexpected move.

  • With Victoria in Germany, Ted faces the pitfalls of long-distance relationships. Marshall has trouble fitting in at Barney's company.
