Robin comes to the realization that many of Ted's possessions are gifts from old girlfriends, which makes her feel uncomfortable since now when she looks at them, all she can picture are his old girlfriends and them mocking her for what they may have had with Ted that she doesn't. Based on the vote of the majority of their friends, Ted agrees to get rid of those possessions to please Robin. But Ted feels cheated when he learns that Robin, who had previously stated that she has kept nothing from her old boyfriends, has indeed kept very important possessions from them: all her dogs. Like Robin, all Ted can now see when he looks at the dogs are all Robin's old boyfriends. Will Ted ask her to get rid of the dogs and if so, will she? Meanwhile, Barney doesn't appreciate that Lily expects her friends to attend her performance in an amateur play. After watching it, Barney tells her exactly what he thinks: he hates it.

Neil Patrick Harris and Alyson Hannigan Shine
4 December 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

An episode of two parts, The Barney and Lily part is very funny, however the Ted and Robin part is just cringeworthy at times. Also in this episode, Marshall uses his second out of free five slaps, which he won earlier on in this season in the episode titled "Slap Bet" Plot In A Paragraph: Lily is upset when Barney gives a harsh criticism of a play she is appearing in, when he says it is cos they are such good friends he can be honest. Lily counters that he should have found something positive to say to make her feel good. so Barney challenges her to watch his deliberately awful play and afterwards say something positive to make him feel good. Amusingly the title of Barney's play is called "Suck It Lily." Meanwhile Robin and Ted argue over stuff that has been left at their apartments from their previous partners.
