Episode cast overview:
Drive Thru Attendant


Marshall loves his car, a Fiero, which he got when he was sixteen. The car represents his youth, which he is slowly losing to being a suit wearing corporate lawyer. So he plans on celebrating when the Fiero hits its 200,000th mile. With less than a mile to go with Ted already breaking out the cigars, the car dies. While the gang waits at the mechanic's shop to see if the Fiero will survive, they reminisce about memorable incidents that have happened in the car, in particular ones that bonded certain friendships. When Marshall learns that the car is repairable but will cost more than it's really worth, Marshall has to decide if the money is worth holding onto his past. Written by Huggo

Made Me Smile A Lot But Not Laugh
4 December 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I have mixed feelings about this episode and while it made me smile, and I know it leads to some running jokes, I only laughed out loud at one part of the episode and that was when Barney was behind the wheel.

Plot In A Paragraph: Marshall's beloved car is about to pass a historic milestone, when it unexpectedly breaks down. All the gang rush to the garage (Of course they do,it's HIMYM)where they warn Marshall he may need to brace himself for some bad news, while they all reminisce about their best AND worst times in the car.

We get of first time of the proclaimers stuck on loop in the carm the first telling of "Ted/Marshall and I were room mates, but we weren't friends yet"
