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

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.

Not as good as I expected
24 September 2008 | by (Singapore) – See all my reviews

I was looking forward to see this episode a long time ago. And I can't believe 45 out 49 voters gave 10 on this episode. My personal favorite episode was slap bet. And this one is not as good. Firstly, I think the relationship between Ted and Stella was too fast. I can't believe Ted was prepared to get married. Maybe the director wanted to finish this show in the future. The story that Stella doesn't like star wars was kinda lame and not funny at all. Marshall became much less fun in this episode. His joke was plain and never did he use his best "innocent" tone while talking. The only saving grace was Barney. He falls in love with Robin. However, I was very confused at the ending. I don't know whether he returns to the man he was. Personally, I thought a new Barney would be more interesting instead of the old one. I hope this bouncing between new and old could really create some contradiction in his personality and bring us more surprising element.
