Ted, Marshall, Lily and Barney go to Stella's house. They cannot go out because Stella can't get a babysitter. While there, they start "beating up" on New Jersey and an argument ensues over which is better; New York or New Jersey. In addition, Stella tells Ted she has no plans to move to New York when they get married, because she doesn't want to uproot her life, as well as Lucy's and there's an argument about where they should live. Now Ted has to decide if he will live in New York, without Stella and Lucy or be with them in New Jersey.

Interesting Episode

Plot In A Paragraph: Ted does not want to move in with Stella because he hates New Jersey where she lives, and she refuses to move to New York. Robin prematurely quits her TV job because she incorrectly thinks that she already has a new job.

An interesting episode, just not a very funny one. The debate certainly was an interesting one, although New York is one of my favourite Cities in the world, I like New Jersey because on Bon Jovi.

I loved the look Barney gave to Robin when she said she is moving to Japan. I think he really does love her, and is hiding his feelings.

I also loved him keeping his hand up the full episode.
