A perceived problem is that most of Marshall's family now hate Lily for walking out on him in the first place. To avoid the wrath of the Eriksen's at a wedding ceremony, Marshall and Lily decide to go to Atlantic City to elope, with only their three closest friends by their side.

Trivia

Barney (Neil Patrick Harris) actually spoke reasonably accurate Mandarin Chinese during this episode. The game they played can be loosely translated as "Can or Cannot?" See more »

Goofs

Ship Captains cannot actually perform marriages unless they are authorized by some other source (by being a minister or holding some other position that empowers them to do so).

The notion that Ship Captains can perform marriages is a myth. See more »

Quotes

Narrator: When they called off their first wedding, Aunt Lily took off for San Francisco leaving Uncle Marshall with the unfortunate task of telling his entire family.
Marshall Eriksen: [Flashback, Marshall's] Yeah, so now she's gone and the wedding's off. What do you call someone who just takes off and leaves like that? What do you call that? I think that that's a little strong. I can't even believe you would use a word like that. Geez, Grandma.

Barney's Gambling Secret Revealed

Plot In A Paragraph: Lily and Marshall decide to elope to Atlantic City to get married and the gang drop everything to go with them to celebrate the occasion. However getting married in Atlantic City proves to be harder than they ever anticipated. Can Barney win them the money to get married by a captain at sea.

Barney (Neil Patrick Harris) actually spoke reasonably accurate Mandarin Chinese during this episode. The game they played can be loosely translated as "Can or Cannot?"

Once again Neil Patrick Harris brings the laughs and Alyson Hannigan and Jason Segel also excellent again too!! They are quickly becoming my favourites behind NPH.

A bonus point in the rating for the scene where Barney plays the game.
