Storyline

While by himself at MacLaren's, Ted runs into Trudy, a wild woman with who he once went out. Trudy's old sorority sister Rachel shows up, the two who seem to be competitive with each other. Ted isn't sure if either is into him, so via cell phone, he asks for Marshall, Lily and Barney's advice, they who are at his apartment. It doesn't matter as Ted figures out what they really want is a threesome. Ted brings Trudy and Rachel up to his apartment, where Marshall, Ted and Barney - hiding out in Ted's bedroom - give him advice on how to proceed. Up front with his motivations, Barney has ulterior motives in the advice he gives in his and Ted's quest for what they have coined the championship belt. Meanwhile, Robin has a new dating rule, where she hides her non-shaven legs underneath knee-high boots for three dates with the same guy, so that she will behave i.e. not sleep with him until the fourth date.

Trivia

The title of the third episode from the third season is called How I Met Your Mother: Third Wheel (2007) that refers to a threesome that Ted is about to have. See more »

Goofs

Just after Ted runs into Trudy at the bar, he says to her that he would have called her after "The Pineapple Incident", but was too embarrassed. In "The Pineapple Incident", he tells his kids that he did phone, but she did not return his calls. See more »

Quotes

Barney Stinson: I can't let you do this, Ted.
Ted Mosby: Why not?
Barney Stinson: Because the belt is my birthright. You can't ride the tricycle before me. It's like Jimmy Olsen beating Lex Luthor while Superman watches impotently in his bed.

Another So So Episode

Another so so episode in season three of "How I Met Your Mother"

Plot In A Paragraph: Whilst on his own at Maclarens Ted runs in to Trudy (the girl who fled his apartment after a one night stand in the episode 'The Pineapple Incident') and then later, her old sorority sister turns up and it would appear Ted has a chance for a threesome with the two women, but Barney is disgusted Ted could get a threesome before him and he tries to sabotage it. Meanwhile, Robin's date with a British doctor also goes better than expected, if only she can find a razor.

So far season three is not hitting the heights of the last season which had some great episodes. Hopefully things pick up when Barney Stinson (The brilliant Neil Patrick Harris) starts getting something more than filler story lines
