Storyline

Ted is telling his children about a series of seemingly unrelated events that took place in 2009 all at around the same time: Robin getting food poisoning and vomiting on air; Barney miscalculating that a Czech super model will be his two hundredth sex partner; and Marshall overusing poster sized charts he has made up by the graphics department at GNB. Why is he telling them these stories in combination? Because they all led to him standing on a certain street corner at a certain time which resulted in him meeting their mother. As Ted is standing on that corner at that time, he is tapped on the shoulder by... Written by Huggo

Trivia

In this episode Robin had food poisoning and Barney and Ted made fun of her saying she's pregnant because she vomited. In real life, the actress, Cobie Smulders who played Robin was actually pregnant at that time. See more »

Goofs

During Marshall's presentation at the bar, he mentions Barney's 16 years of sexual activity. In How I Met Your Mother: The Yips Barney mentions losing his virginity at age 23 to Rhonda. This would make Ted 31 while Barney is 39, much older than he is portrayed. See more »

Quotes

Narrator: Kids, I've been telling you the story of how I met your mother, and while there's many things to learn from this story, this may be the biggest. The great moments of your life won't necessarily be the things you do, they'll also be the things that happen to you. Now, I'm not saying you can't take action to affect the outcome of your life, you have to take action, and you will. But never forget that on any day, you can step out the front door and your whole life can change forever. You see, the ...

I hate cliffhangers but this was great.
5 May 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm only going to comment on two events. First is the issue of Barney's 200th liaison. Even after the disappointment he feels over the supermodel bot being his 200th, we saw the next part coming. After saying "What's next?", it immediately goes to a scene of him looking at Robin. We all know what that means. This also happens to be the last scene and drove me nuts after what happened in the next comment.

Now for the big one. The whole episode is about Ted being in the right place at the right time. Throughout the episode we see a scene of Ted being tapped on the shoulder by a woman and him explaining about how circumstances led to him being on that street corner. Right before the last commercial break the mystery woman is finally revealed, AND IT'S STELLA! Leaving us with a cliffhanger like Stella reappearing makes me really anxious for next week and what will come of this.
