Marshall and Lily think that it's time they got their own place. Lily automatically thinks they should rent, but Marshall gets it into his mind that he wants to buy, not knowing yet about Lily's massive credit card debt. What's worse is that the first place they look at, Marshall loves without the real estate agent even needing to do a sell job to them. It's in a neighborhood real estate agents coin Dowisetrepla, of which they've never heard. Marshall finally finds out about their financial issues once they try to secure a mortgage. Beyond the argument Lily and Marshall have the size of their debt, Lily comes up with an unconventional solution to their problem. But will they ever find out what Dowisetrepla means? Meanwhile, Barney secures a key to the condominium that Marshall and Lily want to buy. His purpose?: to pretend that the place is his own so that he can sleep with a woman there for a one time only purpose, leave and never have to see her again. Written by Huggo

Some Familiar Places Here
11 December 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

April Bowlby (Candy from "Two And A Half Men") and Maggie Wheeler (Janice from "Friends") both have roles in this episode.

Plot In A Paragraph: When Marshall and Lily decide to buy an apartment, Lilys debt problems come to light, as Marshall struggled with the high pressure sales tactics used by the Realtor (Maggie Wheeler) Meanwhile Barney uses their potential new apartment to woo a girl (the gorgeous April Bowlby)

This episode moves things forward from a plot perspective but only Barney gets any laughs. But that is no surprise as Neil Patrick Harris always delivers as the woman mad Barney Stinson.

It's nice to see both Bowlby and Wheeler on TV again, as I likes both of them in their respective roles.
