Robin is still so surprised when she realizes that she and Barney are dating. She reconsiders her relationship with Barney when it seems that he really doesn't want to be in a relationship, and then makes a 180 degree turn being too attentive, which makes Robin believe he's cheating on her. By breaking into Barney's briefcase, Robin and Lily learn that Barney hasn't been cheating on her with another woman but that he has been going to night school. The class: Robin 101. The teacher: Professor Ted Mosby. Ted convinced Barney that he had to be attentive to Robin's needs to keep her, and who better than Ted to teach him what those needs are. Will Robin be flattered or offended? Meanwhile, Marshall says goodbye to his old friend Mabel... or so he thinks. Written by

When Ted is teaching Barney, and Barney doesn't pay attention, he mutters "How do I reach this kid?", which is a reference to Stand And Deliver, a movie about a teacher in an inner city class. Later, they reference Dead Poet's Society, another movie centered around a teacher and his students. See more

Look, all that stuff I told Barney, it was personal between you and me. I'm really sorry.
I guess I'm impressed by how much you remembered.
It's funny. When you date someone, it's like you're taking one long course in who that person is, and then when you break up, all that stuff becomes useless. It's the emotional equivalent of an English degree. I guess I just liked the idea of putting all my Robin Scherbatsky knowledge to good use. You know?
Well, since you know me pretty well... Am I ...
