Lily is still trying to find her passion in life after returning from San Francisco. In order to do that, she will have to work somewhere - anywhere - to finance it. After a failed waitressing job, Ted offers her a job as an office assistant with his company. When she arrives at the office, she meets the head architect, Hammond Druthers, who she considers an inconsiderate blowhard who treats Ted like a child, and who is not a very good architect to boot. Lily uses a technique from her kindergarten class to try and make Druthers a nicer person to work with. Meanwhile, Marshall is having a difficult time with one of his professors. She, he's guessing in her forties or fifties, just got divorced over the summer and is taking it out on the students. After learning that she is attractive, Barney makes it his mission to trap a cougar so that the cougar won't attack her students anymore. Written by
