Storyline

Ted and Robin have just had their first fight. Part of the issue is that Robin believes that Ted's job is boring, and about which he rambles on and on, especially when he's had a bad day. Barney convinces Ted that his job may or may not be boring, but that he needs to be more convincing and suave in saying what he does for it to be attractive to the women. For fun, Ted tries using his job as a pick-up line to a beautiful woman - a kick-boxer named Anna - and it works. Robin hears about Ted picking up this woman, but she isn't overly concerned about what it means. But as Robin, with Lily by her side, goes on trek following Ted's movements that night, Robin becomes more concerned as it looks as if Ted is willing to go outside of his comfort zone to impress and thus sleep with Anna. Robin comes to a realization about herself as the night comes to a close. Written by Huggo

Quotes

Lily Aldrin: [after hearing Ted invited a girl from the bar to Marshall's law party] He asked her to a party. Oh, my God, are you okay?
Robin Scherbatsky: Okay? It's awesome. It's a win-win. Ted got to vent and I don't have to hear it. Maybe after he's done with the talkie-talk, he'll come over and I'll get the fun part.
Lily Aldrin: What is wrong with you? God, I feel like I'm teaching love as a second language here. Okay, you know how when he tells you boring work stories you're supposed to listen? Well, when he picks up some random girl...

Ted Mosby. Architect.
25 November 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Another good episode of "How I Met Your Mother" that doesn't feature Barney Stinson that much. However Neil Patrick Harris simply steals every scene he is in. Every time there is a great episode of this show, it's him that is the focal point, now he is stealing episodes where he isn't.

Plot In A Paragraph: Robin (Cobie Smulders) upset Ted (Josh Radnor) when she won't listen to his "boring work stories" and lists "Field Of Dreams" as her go to bad movie, and they have their first fight. Barney Stinson (Neil Patrick Harris) tells him women love architects and Ted simply doesn't sell himself right. So determined to prove to Robin he is not boring he approaches two women in Maclarens and introduces himself as "Ted Mosby. Architect" the rest of the episode follows Lily (Alyson Hannigan) and Robin as they chase "Ted Mosby The Architect" one of the girls and Marahal (Jason Segel) from place to place.

Josh Radnor, Cobie Smulders. Jason Segel, Alyson Hannigan are all fun here but again this episode is stolen by Neil Patrick Harris.
