Storyline

Marshall and Lily are hosting 2009 Thanksgiving at their new apartment for the first time. Because Ted and Robin come through with what Marshall deems the make or break item for Thanksgiving, he shows his ultimate gratitude: he is giving them the fourth of only five slaps to Barney Marshall won in a bet with Barney in 2006. The terms of Marshall's gift: it must be done before sundown so as not to interfere with dinner, Ted and Robin can decide between themselves who gets to deliver the slap, and they will tie Barney down to a chair for the slap. Barney, who has always hated the anticipation of the slap as much as the slap itself, is hoping that time will run out as Ted and Robin discuss then argue over who deserves to deliver the slap more. Thanksgiving may end up being as bad for Lily, whose deadbeat father Mickey Aldrin, who has always disappointed her and from who she has officially been estranged for three years, shows up at their doorstep.

Great Fun
13 January 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

After a great episode, possibly the best ever, it was inevitable there would be a drop in quality, but it's not that big a drop as both Neil Patrick Harris and Alyson Hannigan nail it in this episode with solid support from Jason Segel, Cobie Smulders and Josh Radnor.

Plot In A Paragraph: Marshall and Lily were hosting Thanksgiving at their house for the first time and Marshall was very excited about having picked the perfect turkey. He was telling Lily all about it when his cab drove away before he could take it out. Marshall was bummed, but Ted and Robin had picked it up from the Port Authority lost and found. Marshall was beyond grateful. So grateful, in fact, that he bequeathed unto them the fourth slap.

I love the running joke of the "Slap Bet"
