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 »

What a season finale (NO SPOILERS!)
31 August 2006 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

This was an absolutely great season finale and besides "Game Night" (my favorite episode) and "The Pineapple incident" this is one of the greatest episodes of the first season.

Although Neil Patrick Harris (Barney) was great as usual, I really have to say that - in my opinion - Jason Segel (Marshall) was absolutely incredible. I mean, the cast is really strong compared to comedy series like "The New Adventures..." (I really don't like her) and "Out of Practice" and they grew together so fast that I found myself reminded of the good old friends era.

This show has very high potentials, strong characters, great actors, funny lines and a combines a fresh breeze and a great concept with the good old sitcom-style. A great mix with the opportunity of becoming a new phenomenon and definitely the best comedy series in the post-friends-era which first season ended with this marvelous episode.
