Barney feels that its time for Marshall to get out in the dating scene once again. He likens Marshall being single to a kid in a candy store, with any candy ready for his picking. Barney tells him that he'll be Marshall's wing man in picking up girls. Their nights out don't quite work out that way, but when the opportunity finally arrives for Marshall and a potential date, Marshall doesn't seem to know what to do. Meanwhile, Robin receives a surprise visit: from Lily. Lily implies that she had the best summer in San Francisco, not only with the art fellowship, but with life overall. Robin tells Ted about Lily's return, the two who argue about whether they should tell Marshall. But when Ted finally sees Lily, he has a different point of view. Written by
Did You Know?
When Barney is "taking a leak" after disappearing, he sticks out his head facing North (from the spectators point of view, merely, towards Ted's room). We know that the bathroom is actually facing West (spectator's point of view, again. Opposite the kitchen). Is he peeing on a plant? If so, why does Marshall seems so cool about it? See more
You said being single would be like a candy store.
I lied. Being single is like a post-apocalyptic wasteland where it's every man for himself. After nine years of captivity, that is my greatest lesson to you.
