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.

Barney Stinson: Bimbos make me happy. Bimbos make me feel alive. Bimbos make me want to pretend to be a better man. This whole thing with Robin was just a fling, but at the end of the day, my heart belongs to bimbos.

The start of my favourite season of HIMYM...
30 October 2010 | by (Valhalla) – See all my reviews

...And I mean EVER. HIMYM Season 4 is the season that hooked me into HIMYM more so than the others. I like this season because Stella leaves for good (I hate her), Ted goes back on track with his search for "The One", Barney falls in love with Robin, Ted does an archaetecture job that fails and leads to a College Professor job... definitely a great season.

The fade-ins and fade-outs to Season 3 and 4 were funny because at the end of Season 2 Barney says "it's gonna be le-gen... wait for it" and that's it and at the beginning of season 3 it starts with him saying "...dary legendary". Season 3 ends with Ted saying "will you marry me?" and it starts with the narrator saying "the longest pause a man will make in his life is when he says..." well you get the idea.

The Star Wars gimmick was hilarious it's his favourite movie yet Stella hasn't seen it Marshall blows it and Ted doesn't know what the problem is until he's seen it "It's just a movie... OK If Stella doesn't like this movie I won't marry her" makes me laugh.

Ted asks the question to Stella and then we discover the fact that he doesn't know her at all and he doesn't care until Ted cooks Dinner for Stella How Stella makes Ted realise he needs to know more about her goes something like this: Ted: can you guess what my secret ingredient is? Stella: Is it peanuts? Ted: Yes how did you know...? (Stella faints) Never before have I seen this many Character arc's in a season of TV except In Joss Whedon shows let me explain...If you look at this episode then my favourite episode "The Leap" you would say "These characters are not the same characters just played by the same people".

This is one great episode especially the text "Stop watching me you bastards" also cracks me up. This season is legen-wait for it-
