Ted and Marshall have agreed that there will be no strippers at Marshall's bachelor party which they plan on holding in Atlantic City with their friends Stuart and Brad also invited. Barney plans on hiring a stripper anyway. But when Ted tells Barney on the way that they are not going to Atlantic City but to Foxwoods instead (since Ted knew Barney would have a stripper waiting in Atlantic City), Ted thinks he's pulled one over on Barney. In turn, Barney pulls a maneuver which he thinks has outfoxed the fox, although Barney's new plan doesn't come off quite the way he or anyone else quite expects. Meanwhile, Lily is having her bridal shower. Barney talks Robin into buying Lily a vibrator as a gift. When Robin arrives at the shower, she sees that it is not the vibrator type crowd. Feeling embarrassed if anyone at the shower sees what she's bought, Robin does whatever she can throughout the evening to retrieve her gift from the gift table without anyone seeing what she's done or worse ...

In the scene where Barney, Ted, Marshall and Stuart are eating steaks after the strip, at the wall of the restaurant there are caricatures of celebrities. Among them, there are caricatures of HIMYM's creators and writers. See more »


In the scene where Barney goes to meet Lily who is still in San Francisco (around the 20 minute mark), he buys a ticket for her and says "I can't keep stealing chicks from Marshall". In the second episode of the season where he does the referred stealing, he does so 'after' Marshall "checks out Robin's ass" and that's when Lily is back in NY. See more »


Robin Scherbatsky: Hey, Barney, check out what I got Lily for her shower. It's kind of racy. Think you can handle it?
Barney: Uh, I've been in a tenway, so yeah.
Robin Scherbatsky: [holds out a minimal dress] It's kind of see-through.
Barney: Woah-ho-ho! You weren't kidding. You know when you should give that to her? 1850!

A Different Side To Barney Stinson
4 December 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

WOW. We get to see a different side to Barney Stinson (Neil Patrick Harris) here. Shown in a flashback, we see an unexpected and very surprising gesture he made earlier in this second season.

Plot In A Paragraph: It is Marshalls Bachelor party and Ted changes Barney's plans for Marshall at the last minute, so that it won't just consist of gambling and strippers, but going to see a prize fight instead. This disgusts Barney who still attempts to get a stripper for the guys. And Robin gets Lily an inappropriate Hen party gift, which would not be a problem until she sees who is in attendance.

It's interesting to see that side of Barney, it's been hinted at before, but never shown. I look forward to more.
