Storyline

Ted visits a tattoo removal clinic to get his butterfly tattoo removed and he's attracted to his doctor, Stella. She warns him that he will have to go through ten one hour sessions and it it will be very painful. Ted understands and he wants to go out with her, but she can't, as long as Ted is her patient and it's a violation of AMA rules. In addition, she tells Ted up front when he suggests that they can go out when the sessions are over, the answer will be no. Ted is convinced that he can change that no into a yes after ten sessions. During these sessions, Ted tries to charm Stella, but it appears it's not working. One ploy he tries is to be very nice to Stella's receptionist, Abbey, but Stella still says no and Abbey is attracted to Ted. When session ten arrives, and the tattoo removal is complete, when Ted asks her once again, we find out why Stella can't go out on a date with him. Ted, upset that this isn't going to happen, finds a way so they can go out together. Written by goleafs84

Britney Spears Comeback
26 March 2008 | by See all my reviews

The pop diva created a character that was fun, funny, sexy and honest, her performance was amazing better than in her debut film Crossroads, after all this drama, you can say that shes back, miss, Britney's character was fun she was completely incredible a side that Britney never showed us before. You can call her character sexy because in the episode you can see a much better looking Spears she looked fantastic, but most important slim, this is truly the best comeback i've seen, first a VMA performance that almost ruin everything, later she had to choose 3 hit singles including Gimme More, Piece of Me, and Break the Ice. now to star even stronger she started on How I Meet Your Mother and she did incredible even the critics agree with me. The Best Episode of the Season for sure, i would love to see her in DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES.
