Storyline

Two new couples are borne at approximately the same time. Lily has just moved into her run down and tiny new apartment. After taking a look at it, Ted and Robin know she can't live there. Robin would invite her to stay at her place, but Lily is allergic to dogs. And none of the gang have ever even been to Barney's place, he who doesn't offer.

Trivia

Barney's apartment features a clonetrooper, which only appears in the star wars prequels. In later episodes he bashes the prequels. The clonetrooper is in later episodes replaced with a stormtrooper from the original trilogy. See more »

Goofs

When Lily makes breakfast for Barney, after going out for groceries because there was nothing in the refrigerator, Barney makes it clear that he wants no food in the apartment. But in How I Met Your Mother: The Duel, when Ted suggested Barney might move in with him, Marshall claims Barney cooks in the nude, which wouldn't be true if he allows no food in his apartment.

Quotes

Ted Mosby: [after hearing Brad invited Marshall to a wedding] Okay, that's not too bad. Two single guys on the prowl. It'll be like "Wedding crashers".
Robin Scherbatsky: Just keep Brad away from the bouquet.

Neil Patrick Harris And Alyson Hannigan Deliver
25 November 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Another great episode of "How I Met Your Mother" that features Barney Stinson in it's main story. Neil Patrick Harris is a joy to watch Every time there is a great episode of this show, it's him that is the focal point.

Plot In A Paragraph: Lily (Alyson Hannigan) is introduced to Barney's (Neil Patrick Harris) batchelor pad "The Fortress Of Barnitude" when she urgently needs a place to stay. It's only meant to be temporary "two nights" but when he realises he can use Lily as a fake wife to scare off one night stands he tells her she is never leaving. Meanwhile Marshall (Jason Segel) finds a new friend to go to concerts, musicals and brunch with.

Cobie Smulders and Josh Radnor don't really have anything to do here, but that's OK because the Jason Segel story is fun and he always delivers.

but again this episode belongs to Neil Patrick Harris and Alyson Hannigan. Their scenes together are an absolute delight.
