Episode cast overview:
Darryl Sivad ...
Australian Backpacker


Marshall and Lily are doing many of their post-wedding tasks, such as writing thank you notes and preparing their individual "death folder", which is a package of information for the other in case of their untimely death. Lily implies that the folder should contain a personal letter, of which Marshall was not aware. He quickly writes a heartfelt letter to the love of his life. Unable to resist the urge, he opens Lily's letter which isn't quite what he was expecting. Robin, who had a good time in Argentina, can't seem to capture that joie de vivre she had while in Argentina, even though Gael is still doing those things he did in Argentina which made her so carefree. A move by Gael may show Robin if she really is cut out to be the "Argentina Robin". And impressed by how Gael attracts the women, Barney and Ted decide to take on that attribute they believe is attracting the women: being a foreigner who can only have a short term fling before heading home.

This is where Marshall first mentions that Ted didn't send them a wedding gift. This is shown when they are at the bar and Marshall thinks he is getting "carpal tunnel because of all the thank you notes, mostly". Reference to the final season when we find out that Marshall and Lily thought Ted didn't get them a wedding present See more »


When Robin slams the bedroom door after brandishing her gun to Gael's house guests, you can see the wall/door structure "wobble" from the force of the slam. Obviously, the set walls aren't as sturdy as a wall within a New York apartment would be. See more »


Barney: [looking at Robin's travel photos] Whoa. Are you topless? Ted, check this out.
Ted: Seen 'em.

Thank God For Neil Patrick Harris
11 December 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Not the greatest episode, but it has its moments mainly due to the brilliant Neil Patrick Harris as Barney Stinson.

Plot In A Paragraph: Barney and Ted are convinced women are attracted to Gael simply because he is from out of town. So in an attempt to pick up two chicks, they decide to claim to be from out of town. Meanwhile Robin (as Barney predicted) is slowly getting fed up with Gael and his attitude to life now she is back in New York.

Neil Patrick Harris is so good as Barney Stinson, you can forgive this episode almost anything which is just as well because there Is not much else to write about here. The Robin story quickly runs its course and I could not wait for her scenes to end.
