Episode cast overview:
Kyle Archer ...
April (as Heidi Lynne Herschbach)
Alonza Maxwell ...
Sexy Blonde


In his quest to get back together with Stella, Ted comes to the realization that he loves her, so asks her to marry him. She says yes. Later, Ted, after being questioned by Marshall, also comes to the realization that he knows very little about his bride-to-be. Ted, admitting this fact to her, starts to ask Stella a bunch of questions to find out more about her. One of the more important facts that he learns is that she's never seen Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977), his favorite movie of all time. Stella liking or not liking the movie could be a marriage breaker, especially as Ted is egged on by equally Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977) loving Marshall. Someone also in love is Barney: with Robin. Sensing that she knows something is going on, Barney confides in Lily. Lily gives him advice on how he can be her boyfriend (despite Barney denying that what he wants to be is anything called a boyfriend). Written by Huggo

Did You Know?


An on going joke from season 1-4 was that nobody ever found out what Barney's job was. Every time the gang would ask him he sarcastically replied, 'Please'! However, as of the start of this episode at the season 4, we find out that Barney was involved in a hostile takeover of Goliath National Bank (GNB), and as a result of that, he shifted into management of the bank.

When Lily enters Barney's apartment she says it is 7.22 in the morning but on the security cameras it says it's 7PM. This is not a continuous scene, as noted by the fact that the lights in other apartment buildings are now on and it runs concurrent to the Ted/Stella dinner date, so this time change is correct.

Lily Aldrin: Barney, how can you be in love and still be sleeping with everything that moves?
Barney Stinson: I'm sorry I don't follow you.That's like saying 'how can an ant lift fifty times its body weight, but root beer floats are still delicious?'. Are the two even related?

Neil Patrick Harris Is Excellent In Season Four Opener
18 December 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The resolution to the cliffhanger ending to season 3, and we find out her answer to Teds proposal in the season three finale.

Plot In A Paragraph: Ted is worried he does not know enough about Stella, and he and Marshall worry if she will like their favourite movie 'Star Wars'. Barney reveals to Lily that he may be in love with Robin, and she encourages him to tell her how he feels. Meanwhile Robin is frustrated about the state of her career and Marshall is VERY bored due to his long term unemployment.

I love the Star Wars plot, and Marshall's explanation as to only good reason a person would have for never seeing it made me laugh!! But once again Neil Patrick Harris steals the show, every time we see a different side to Barney he knocks it out of the park. Tip of the cap sir, for a job well done.
