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

Another Guest Star Britney Spears This Time
17 December 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Plot In A Paragraph: Ted visits a tattoo removal clinic to get his butterfly tattoo removed and he's attracted to his doctor, Stella. Ted 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. One play (as Barney would call them) he tries is to be very nice to Stella's receptionist, Abbey (Britney Spears), but Stella still says no and Abbey is really starting to like Ted.

Neil Patrick Harris is brilliant here as Barney Stinson, who is convinced Ted can not turn the no into a yes. I really liked the chemistry between Ted and Stella, and the ending was great. But for me the biggest surprise was Britney Spears as Abbey, I expected her to be awful, but she played her with such a sweet naivety that is was hard not to arm to her.

Well done Ms Spears.
