Storyline

Robin has been out of work for four months. Among her unopened fan mail from Metro News 1, she finds a notice of her work visa expiration in seven days unless she finds another job in her field. As she has not even come close to finding another job, she, feeling desperate, takes Barney up on his offer to prepare a video resume for her, despite his own video resume being meaningless and inane, it which includes him stating such made up words as "possimpible". Thinking the direction that Barney is going in with the video resume will yield nothing, Robin applies for anything. Meanwhile, Ted, Marshall and Lily argue about the meaningless items each sees in the others' resumes. And Marshall sustains a basketball slam dunking injury, which in common terms is called "dancer's hip". Marshall confesses to Lily how he really got the injury. Written by Huggo

Goofs

The voice in the beginning of Barney's resume is questioned by Ted to be him with a fake accent. Barney then follows him up with the question "How could it be me, he's British?" and then the voice changes to feature a Scottish accent at which Ted then states ".. and a wee bit Scottish". Scotland is inside Great Britain. See more »
