Barney explains The Platinum Rule to Ted: Never, ever, ever love thy neighbor. After Ted wakes up to discover that he got a butterfly tattoo on his lower back while drunk, he sees a dermatologist to have it removed. Ted finds himself attracted to the doctor and announces his plan to date her. But Barney and the others try to dissuade him by sharing their own experiences dating people with whom they have to communicate on a regular basis should the relationship sour. Written by Melissa
