Storyline

Ever since Marshall and Lily got married, Ted feels that his "best bro" Marshall has turned from being a "me" to a "we". That's why Ted is so excited when Marshall agrees to recreate one of their crazy college road trips to Chicago's Gazola's pizza joint, which is closing. But this trip is not quite what Ted was expecting as Marshall invites Lily. As Lily's presence changes the nature of the road trip, Ted tries to regain what he wanted this trip to be. Meanwhile, Robin may be deported unless she becomes a US citizen. Robin, a patriotic Canadian, isn't sure if she wants to become an American. Barney, who doesn't understand why anyone wouldn't want to be American, helps Robin become his version of American. But when Robin's withdrawal symptoms become too much for her to handle, she falls off the wagon. This experience shows her where she really fits and where her patriotic heart lies. Written by Huggo

Quotes

Barney Stinson: Attention Canada! I am Barney from America, and I am here to fix your backward ass country. Number one, get real money. Don't know what board game this came from, but it's a joke. Number two, and this is the biggy, quit letting awesome chicks, like Robin Scherbatsky, get away. Because, guess what, you don't want her, I'm planting my flag in her, if you know what I mean, which you probably don't, and getting the hell outta here, you may now return to being pointless.

A So So Episode
13 January 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The TV channel I'm rewatching this show on, missed the previous episode out, I'm guessing it was too rude to be show at 13:30 on an afternoon with a title like "The sexless inkeeper" , but I don't appear to have missed anything.

Plot In A Paragraph: Ever since Marshall and Lily got married, Ted feels that his best friend (Marshall, not Barney) has turned from being a "me" to a "we". That's why Ted is so excited when Marshall agrees to recreate one of their crazy college road trips to Chicago's Gazola's pizza place, which is closing down. But this trip is not quite what Ted had in mind as Marshall invites Lily. Meanwhile, Robin may be deported unless she becomes a US citizen. Robin, a patriotic Canadian, isn't sure if she wants to become an American. Barney, doesn't understand why anyone wouldn't want to be American, helps Robin become his version of an American.

The Barney/Tobin subplot is fun, but the Ted/Marshall and Lilly is silly
