Storyline

His plan entails waiting for her in her apartment, which he can only do by borrowing Lily's spare key. With one small glitch, Ted is able to pull off his grand gesture. Overwhelmed, Robin, doesn't know how to respond. Her answer - with Ted only accepting a "yes" or "no" with no in-between - takes into consideration a work issue. To help Robin make up her mind, Ted feels like he has to produce an act of God... with a little help from one of Barney's old girlfriends who would rather see Barney dead than help him. Meanwhile, Marshall finds out that Lily applied for a summer long art fellowship in San Francisco when he listens to a voice message left on their answering machine that offers her the position.

Goofs

Penelope mentions having slept with Barney twice in the back of his car, but in "Arrivederci, Fiero" it is revealed that Barney doesn't own a car and in fact cannot even drive. However, Barney often lies to women and could easily have told her that some random car was actually his. They slept in the car; she never said that he drove it. See more »

Quartet Leader: Sure.

Jason Segel Knoks It Out Of The Park In Season One Comes To An End
20 November 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

It's the last episode in the first season of How I Met Your Mother and I'm not liking where things were headed.

Plot In A Paragraph: Ted decides to make one last romantic gesture to win Robins heart, but unfortunately so does Sandy Rivers. Whilst Marahall finds out about the art scholarship that Lily applied for.

I can't believe the powers that be decided to go ahead with the Lily's cold feet storyline!! Excellent acting all round by Alyson Hannigan and in particular Jason Segel. It was heartbreaking. The scene at the end, where he is sat in the rain is superb acting that required no words.

It was no surprise to see Ted end the season with Robin, I called that from the minute they sent the awesome Victoria off to Germany. So they not only wrecked my favourite Ted relationship, but now the best relationship in the show (other than Barney and his suits)

Despite some average episodes, I've enjoyed most of the first season. Usually an episode that feature Neil Patrick Harris's character Barney Stinson heavily. And it's mainly due to him, that I'll see how the second season goes.
