Storyline

In the two weeks before Marshall and Lily's wedding, the gang believe the two of them have become co-dependent on each other. To prove that they aren't, Marshall and Lily decide to go ahead with their original plan of not sleeping with each other until their wedding night. Can they hold out that long? Ted and Lily are facing two other issues regarding the wedding, Ted's being that Marshall is continually censoring Ted's toast, and Lily's being that she needs to gain about five pounds to fit into her wedding dress properly, or else pay the $300 to get the dress altered. Both problems seem insurmountable as the wedding gets closer. Meanwhile, Barney is preparing for his upcoming appearance on the game show The Price Is Right (1972). Although Barney is certain he can win all the prizes he wants (with the exception of not mastering how to spin to the $1 space on the big wheel), he confesses that he has an ulterior motive to be on the show: to meet his biological father, Bob Barker.

My Favourite Episode So Far
5 December 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

My favourite episode of "How I Met Your Mother" so far. No surprise Neil Patrick Harris's Barney Stinson is front and centre. Anyone who has seen my reviews of this show know what I think.

Plot In A Paragraph: Barney is ecstatic to be a contestant on the TV show "The Price Is Right" where he plans to unveil himself as the host Bob Barker's son. Marshall and Lily attempt to spend some time away from each other as the Wedding approaches and Lily finds she is too thin for her dress.

The Marshall and Lily story is cute, but this is all about Barney Stinson and the performance of Neil Patrick Harris. I mentioned recently about the softer side to Barney when it was revealed he secretly engineered Marshall and Lily getting back together. This episode we find out more about his childhood and a real vulnerable side to him. I love Neil Patrick Harris and he plays him to perfection in this episode.
