But Ted tells his children the not so happy back stories behind the happy faces in the photo. Marshall and Lily were still trying to figure out their relationship following their break-up. Their measures to one up the other in a sexual manner ended up with a few unusual results. The evening before the photo was taken, Barney and Alfred went out for drinks.

The exteriors of the restaurant where the group has brunch is called Carrie's for this episode. However, it is the same restaurant that is called Nolita in Kitchen Confidential (2005), and had been in the background during "The Limo" episode in season one. See more »

Goofs

When Ted's dad helps Barney hit on "Wendy the waitress" it's as if Wendy and Barney never hooked up considering that they are able to pull a lie over her about Barney this is established as happening in 2006 by Ted in the beginning of the episode. However in episode 3.11 How I Met Your Mother: The Platinum Rule when Barney decides to seduce "Wendy the waitress" it is established as happening in November 2005. So this would seem to be a plot hole or continuity error. Unless Wendy is just clueless. See more »

Quotes
