In 2030, Ted has a prominent photo in his house of him, his four friends and his parents at his parent's thirtieth wedding anniversary brunch.

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.

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 (2007) 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

Virginia Mosby: Oh, Barney. You're just delightful.
Barney Stinson: No, you're delightful. I'm delighted. And he's just Ted. I'm really not planning these things; they just keep happening.
