Barney just can't seem to loosen up on his dates with Thelma Lou; he's ill at ease and can't put two words together unless he's talking shop. He has no trouble telling Andy how he feels about Thelma Lou - she's the cats - but he just can't tell her. After Andy tells Thelma Lou how Barney feels, she decides to make him jealous and tells him that Andy came calling on her. Barney's ready to fight; he won't listen to Andy's explanation and makes a play for Ellie. When Ellie tells Andy what happened he wishes he'd never got involved but Ellie figures out how the two of them can set the other two straight and things work out. Written by
