Storyline

Although he vowed to Robin and Marshall that he would never tell them, Ted finally tells his kids that at one time both Robin and Marshall used to smoke. In 2009, they both felt like they had good reason to do so. Marshall, only an occasional smoker, always said that each cigarette was his last. But when his old boss, the meanest man nicknamed Artillery Arthur, became his new boss, he thought he was going to be fired - again. So when Marshall found out that Arthur was a smoker, Marshall used it as a bonding mechanism to keep his job. Robin, at the time anchoring the morning show, had just gotten a new co-anchor named Don Frank. Don was a career morning show host, moving from morning show to morning show across the country. Robin hated Don for what he represented: a person who had given up on his career, stating that they were on a nothing show that nobody watched. Deep down, Robin feared that he was right.

Trivia

Ted's kids act shocked that the gang all smoke but in season 2, at Lily and Marshall's wedding, Robin and Lily go outside to smoke. See more »

Goofs

The scenes showing Ted's children are from the original pilot where they are wearing different clothes and the set is slightly different. The reason for this is the need to use the reaction they give in the pilot when Ted tells Robin that he loves her on their first date. The same reaction is used in "Last Cigarette Ever" when the kids find out about the cigarette smoking. By Season 5, no new scenes of the kids' reactions were being shot because they were getting too old to look the same as the first 2 seasons. Thus, the need to use the old footage from the pilot.

One of the best
20 April 2014 | by (Middle Of Nowhere) – See all my reviews

I have a feeling that Jason Segel(Marshall Eriksen) was one of the few people who was responsible for the production of the episode, simply due to the fact that he is a bona-fide smoker. So much so in fact that Alyson Hannigan( Lily Aldrin) refuses to kiss him on the lips because of his smoking habit. But all in all this is one of the episodes of HIMYM that I have seen like a thousand times. But it is polarizing in the sense that only people who have smoked in a part of their life(especially with a group of friends) or have observed a smoker will understand it. It shows what makes smoking so addictive and hard to leave i.e. the fact that it is kind of ritual which stays with you and helps you bond with a group I mean I know this might sound weird but it is true and that is the very reason it is difficult to let go and I am sure that many smokers or ex-smokers truly understand and clearly remember their many "Last cigarette evers"
