Storyline

Thanksgiving 2007 is a special one for Lily as the first with Marshall and Lily as Mr. & Mrs. It is also the first with the five friends spending it together, which they hope will become a tradition, except that Robin has invited Bob, the 41-year old she has just started dating. The potential tradition may seem a little different for Robin and Ted as after six months of no longer being a couple, they still haven't gotten to a stage of feeling comfortable with each other in a friends situation. They can't even spend time alone together without that awkward feeling. After they break that awkwardness with an unforeseen act the night before Thanksgiving, they have to come to an understanding about whether they truly are friends or if spending time together now is just a matter of convenience. And Marshall has something extra to be thankful for this Thanksgiving Day. He he renamed this particular Thanksgiving "Slapsgiving". He previously won a bet with Barney allowing him to slap Barney ... Written by Huggo

This episode introduces the recurring gag of both Ted and Robin hearing a phrase or word that resembles a military rank, (eg. "I have this kernel stuck in my teeth"), then proceeding to salute and repeat what was said, as though addressing a military officer ("Colonel Stuckinmyteeth"). See more »

Goofs

In "Slapsgiving" (3.9), Marshall sets the laptop on the dining table, showing his slap countdown clock, and telling Barney that the beeping signifies that they are in the final hour of the countdown. However, they briefly show the screen to read that there is still 2:45:19 (2 Hours, 45 Minutes, and 19 Seconds) left on the countdown. See more »

Plot In A Paragraph: Thanksgiving 2007 is a special one for Marshall, he renamed this particular Thanksgiving "Slapsgiving". After he previously won a bet with Barney allowing him to slap Barney five times whenever he wants. Lily is also excited as the first with her and Marshall as Mr. & Mrs. It is also the first with the five friends spending it together, which they hope will become a tradition, except that Robin has invited Bob, the 41-year old man she has just started dating. The potential tradition may seem a little different for Robin and Ted as after six months of no longer being a couple, they still haven't gotten to a stage of feeling comfortable with each other in a friends situation.

I found the Marshalls torturing of Barney to be very funny, but the Ted and Robin storyline a bit of a bore and the scenes really seemed to drag.
