Quotes

Heidi Klum: Is he alright?
Ted Mosby: He has the yips. Hasn't been able to score with a woman for days.
Heidi Klum: Oh, the yips. In Germany, we call that "Ach du meine Güte, nichts klappt mehr, überhaupt gar nichts mehr, so 'ne Scheiße!" That is bad.

Neil Patrick Harris Shines Again
17 December 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Plot In A Paragraph: Ted talks his four friends into joining a gym with him with disastrous consequences. Especially for Barney. He runs into Rhonda, the older woman friend of his mother's to whom he lost his virginity as told in the episode 'First Time In New York'. Barney is devastated when she confesses that Barney's brother James paid her to sleep with him and then to tell him that he was "the best she ever had" to boost his confidence after the events told in the episode 'Game Night'. And all this is was what made Barney the man he is today, he loses all his ability to talk to women effectively. He then attends the Victoria's Secret fashion show, where he hopes to cure himself. Meanwhile back at the gym, Robin loses all signs of her femininity, Marshall gets the personal trainer from hell, while Lily gets a different time of trainer Neil Patrick Harris is simply brilliant here, whenever a great episode of how I met your mother comes along, he is always front and centre.
