Barney is struggling with how to act around new girlfriend Thelma Lou. Their first double date with Andy and Ellie is a disaster because he can't relax around her. When he takes her home, he won't even kiss her good night. He can talk to Andy about how he feels towards her but can't quite gather the nerve to pour his heart out to her. Andy goes over to talk to Thelma Lou on Barney's behalf but she later tells him that Andy called on her. Barney comes unglued and decides to take revenge by making a move on Ellie. Realizing they have a situation on their hands, Andy and Ellie devise a plan: Ellie will try and seduce Barney while Andy tries to seduce Thelma Lou, the key objective being to have the two run right into each other's arms. It works. Barney and Thelma Lou are shaken out of their timid approach to one another and, in a tender moment, finally confess that they love each other. Barney then confesses that he feels sorry for Andy losing out. Written by
