Quotes

Robin Scherbatsky: When PJ had a job, he was sexy. He was guardian of the bathroom key. A hot guy telling you when you can and can't pee? That's the dream.
Ted Mosby: That's the dream? THE dream? Like what Martin Luther King was talking about?

Worst Episode Of The Season
7 January 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Not even The brilliant Neil Patrick Harris could save this episode. Harris can normally make anything better, just by appearing in it.

Plot In A Paragraph: Ted is still trying to get his own architectural firm - Mosbius Designs - off the ground, the company which he is operating out of his and Robin's apartment. Ted seems more concerned about the cosmetics of the company as opposed to finding actual clients. Complications arise when Ted hires an assistant named PJ, who ends up sleeping with Robin. Meanwhile GNB has been laying off employees lately. To ensure that he is not one of those laid off, Barney feels that Marshall needs to find his "man" niche: something specific that distinguishes him as being a great guy to have around, regardless of job performance.

Alyson Hannigan makes a short appearance in the cold opening and is not again as it was filmed during her last weeks of pregnancy. You can also clearly see that Cobie Smulders is pregnant throughout the episode.
