Storyline

One day when Ted, Barney and Marshall are hanging out at the coffee house instead of the bar, they notice that the beautiful female barista seems to be into Marshall. With Marshall now being single, Ted and Barney encourage him to go after her. Chloe, as she is named, is indeed interested in him. But later when Marshall and Chloe run into Ted and Barney, Ted and Barney encourage Marshall to not date her. The reason?: she has "crazy eyes", which is indicative of a crazy personality. But Marshall doesn't heed their warning and goes out on a date with her. On their date, it's not Chloe that ends up coming off as crazy. Meanwhile, the gang are now calling Barney by a new name, a name that was written on his cup at the coffee house: Swarley. The more he says he hates the name, the more they all call him that and variations of it. Written by Huggo

"Swarley!!!!!"
4 July 2010 | by (Valhalla) – See all my reviews

The guys try hanging out at a coffee shop. Marshall likes a girl that works there, even though Ted and Barney notice something about her. Lily tries to hide that it bothers her that Marshall wants to date someone else. Barney accidentally gets a new nickname. Swarley Is Quite Easily One Of The Funniest Episodes. The Whole Series Is Excellent. Barney Is One Of The Best Sitcom Characters Of All Time & This Nickname Is Just One Of The Little Aspects That Make His Character Great. Now Thats All I Have To Say...Except Morena Baccarin & Tom Lenk Are In This Episode So Thats One Of The Many Joss Whedon TV Show Connections With This(Morena Baccarin Was Inarra In Firefly & Tom Lenk Was Andrew Wells In Buffy The Vampire Slayer & Angel). A Great Episode Of Series 2. "A Phone Call For Swarls Barkley"...No Good..."A Phone Call For Swarley".
