He finds out what's going on when seen with Barney, Lily is approached by a woman telling her that Barney is a lying cheat that will say and do whatever just to get into her pants. As the woman Lily describes could be a number of the women that Barney has slept with through lies and deceit, Barney has to figure out who she is. To narrow the list down, Barney is inspired by Ted and Marshall's love of NCAA basketball and decides to have his own version of March Madness, with the top sixty-four prospects pairing off in individual matches - with the gang deciding which girl is the winner in each pairing - until the final girl is determined.

Trivia

If you go to tedmosbyisajerk.com there is a site designated to trashing Ted Mosby. It includes a song "Mosby is a Jerk [Ted]" that is over 20 minutes in length. It also has a letter written to "Dear Resident" with Resident hand-written into pre-typed letter from How I Met Your Mother: Ted Mosby, Architect (2006). See more »

Goofs

In this episode when Lily is sitting in the bar & when Abby (Britney Spears) comes in to warn Lily about Barney, the same scenario can be viewed in the episode How I Met Your Mother: Everything Must Go. We can clearly see that the hair style which Abby portrays in the 2 episodes is different even though it was the same instance in both the episodes - it's a bit curly in this episode, but straight in the other.

Quotes

Ted Mosby: Come on! Let's see the list.
Barney Stinson: [Mocking Ted] Come on! Let's see the list. Ted, don't be crass. I would never demean the women that I've slept with by putting their names on a tawdry list.
Barney Stinson: [Cut to Barney in the apartment pulling out a scrapbook] This is a scrapbook of all the women I've slept with. I made it at the scrapbook barn on 7th.

Why this show is so IMDb-censoring awesome.
12 November 2008 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

If you pause at a certain moment when Barney's going through pictures in his head, for a split-second there's a picture of Madeleine Albright among the others (referring to a joke from a previous episode).

The fact that this series never forgets anyone or anything, that everything (well, everyone goofs) is so meticulously planned. Wow. SIMPLY AMAZING!
