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. So when she managed to get a scheduled on-air interview with then New York City... Written by Huggo

Trivia

All the major characters are smokers, but based on Ted's monologue, two of them have already quit: Lily when she decided to start getting pregnant, and Marshal when Marvin was born. Ted will quit after his second date with the mother, Robin will quit later in 2013, and Barney will quit in 2017. See more »

Goofs

When the gang decides to smoke the last cigarette ever, you can clearly see that Lily's cigarette is a fake cigarette (or the cigarette had already been lit). See more »

Quotes

Marshall Eriksen: He fired what's his face, Ted! And what's his face was invaluable!
Ted Mosby: Look I can understand you getting upset, but it's not worth killing yourself over.
Barney Stinson: Yeah, wait till you get laid off then kill yourself, like what's his face. Although, I guess now it's more like... where's his face...

One Of The Shows Worst Episodes
13 January 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This episodes is one of the shows worst episodes. Ever since the brilliant episode called "The Playbook" each episode has been a drop in quality since the last, and now we are at this point.

Plot In A Paragraph: Although he vowed that he would never tell them, Ted finally tells his kids that at one time all the gang used to smoke. In 2009, 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. There was serious friction between the two.

I believe we'd only seen Robin smoking previously, now the full gang are smokers??
