After Barney is banned for life from the local laser tag club for his rough play, Ted adds it to what he calls his "Murtaugh" list, named after the Danny Glover character in Lethal Weapon (1987), he who said "I'm too old for this $#*!". Barney ends up seeing Ted's Murtaugh list as a challenge and bets Ted that he can do everything on the list in twenty-four hours. Conversely, Ted tells Robin that he is looking forward to growing old. So Robin and Barney come up with an alternate list of "old folks" things for Ted to do, Ted who double bets Barney that he can complete the items on that list before Barney finishes the Murtaugh list. Meanwhile, after Lily asks him, Marshall agrees to coach Lily's kindergarten class' basketball team. Lily sees it as potential dad training for Marshall. But Lily may change her mind when she sees that Marshall is a dictatorial taskmaster as a coach, as opposed to the touchy-feely coach she wanted. Written by
