Storyline

It's tradition for Ted, Barney, Marshall, Lily and now Robin to watch the Super Bowl together. The 2007 edition of the game is different in that they have to attend a funeral the day of the game. They expect to be home in time for the 6:00 kick off, but just in case they're not, they're Tivo-ing the game. When the funeral goes longer than they expect and they miss the game altogether, Ted proposes that they watch the game on Monday night in eighteen hours to keep the tradition alive, but also to avoid finding out who won the game before watching it. It's difficult enough for Robin to avoid knowing since she works in the media and Ted since he is tasked with buying the hot wings at a sports bar for the game, but it ends up being just as difficult a situation unexpectedly for Marshall. Barney, on the other hand, does whatever he can to find out who won since he's got a lot of money riding on the outcome. Written by Huggo

Goofs

Barney offers Marshall a Super Bowl bet, saying, "I'll give you the Seahawks plus six points for $500." Robin, who at the time is new to the clique, enters and delivers three lines that are supposed to show she fits in with the group. Two of the lines work, when she compliments the beloved chicken wings and likes a Super Bowl commercial. But in the first of the three she says, "I'll take that action but make it 4 points and a grand." She's actually made the bet worse for herself by getting two fewer points. This has the opposite effect than what the writers intended for the character at that point. See more »

Quotes

Ted Mosby: So let me get this straight. A funeral is the one time you don't suit up?
Barney: Have I taught you nothing, Ted?
Ted Mosby: Virtually.
Barney: Suits are full of joy. They're the sartorial equivalent of a baby's smile.
Ted Mosby: "Sartorial"?
Barney: "Of or pertaining to tailors or their trade." Suits are for the living. That's why when it's my time to R.I.P. I'm going out of this world the same way I came into it. Buck naked! Yeah! It's going to be awesome. Open bar for the guys, open casket for the ladies!
[high-pitched]
Barney: What uuuuup!

Another Substandard Episode
3 December 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A second sub standard episode in a row for "How I Met Your Mother" in its second season. Though I did like a continuation of Barney's gambling problem.

Plot In A Paragraph: Ted misses a flight to an important job interview and he sets about looking who to blame. First on his list of culprits is Barney, but then he realises if it was not for Marshall, Barney would not have been to blame, and before you know it he has worked his way through the entire group and to the real culprit.

A generous 6/10 because the Barney storyline is funny as Neil Patrick Harris is always great fun to watch and is always reliable, but some of the other parts just fell a bit flat.

What it does give away is that Ted may not marry Robin, as it ends with Ted and what looks like a blonde bride at the alter, with the voice over "My destiny was to stay in New York, otherwise I never would have met your mother"
