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

Marshall's Venn diagram with Cecilia at the intersection of the two circles is a reference to the lyrics of the Simon and Garfunkel song, "Cecilia". The opening lines of this song are, "Cecilia, you're breaking my heart / you're shaking my confidence daily..." See more »

Goofs

When Ted remembers the time they made an intervention about Marshal's graphs, he refers that if happened when Marshal started to work for Goliath National Bank but at that time Ted wasn't yet a independent architect as it was shown. Also, Lily didn't appear in the intervention. See more »

Quotes

Ted Mosby: I could be designing concert halls, and bridges. Bridges that could be considered works of art and should be on museums. And I could design those museums. But instead, what am I designing? What has my career led to? A two-story Stetson with outdoor dining on the brim.

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.
