Storyline

It's approaching Ted's thirty-first birthday, and he's at a desperate time in his professional life. He refuses to take the job as an architecture professor since he sees that as a failure of not being an actual architect. So he takes the only design job offered to him: to design a restaurant, a rib joint, in the shape of a cowboy hat. For three solid days, this job is the focus of his life to the exclusion of all else including celebrating his birthday (much to his friends' chagrin, they who planned a surprise party for him on the rooftop). But Lily's pet goat throws a small wrench into Ted's life. Up on the roof, Marshall is contemplating making the literal six or seven foot horizontal leap to the roof of the adjacent building (where there is an inviting hot tub), missing which would mean falling several stories to the ground. Although he's thought about doing it for years, he seems closer now to doing it than ever. And Barney thinks that he's in love with Robin and plans on telling... Written by Huggo

Trivia

At the time of filming, Alyson Hannigan (Lily) is pregnant in real life. The camera angles strategically hide her belly throughout the episode. In the final jumping scene, they DO show Lily's belly (while she is jumping in the air) but not her face, indicating that a stunt double was used for this shot. When she lands her back is to the viewer, and when Ted lands Robin stands in front of her to cover her up. See more »

Goofs

When Ted jumps across the building, a close up of his feet is shown. In this shot he is wearing plain black gym shoes. But in the next shot when he makes it to the building he is wearing black dress shoes. See more »

Season Finale
8 January 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The season finale of season four of "How I Met Your Mother" is hard to describe.

Plot In A Paragaph: It's Ted's thirty-first birthday. He is still refusing to take the job as an architecture professor since he sees that as a failure of not being an actual architect. So he takes the only design job offered to him: to design a restaurant in the shape of a cowboy hat. Lily's pet goat complicates Ted's life a little bit. Meanwhile up on the roof, the gang are having a surprise party for Ted, whilst waiting for him to arrive Marshall is contemplating making the literal six or seven foot horizontal leap to the roof of the adjacent building (where there is a hot tub), And Barney plans on telling Robin he is love with her.

The Ted and the goat was as silly as "How I Met Your Mother" has ever come up with, and it has come up with some silly things so far. But the Barney and Robin plot made it worthwhile as they tried to "Mosby" each other.
