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 2014, 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...

Worst HIMYM Episode Ever
10 December 2012 | by (Whitman, MA) – See all my reviews

I really like HIMYM. I've seen every episode at least once, which allows me to definitively say that "Last Cigarette Ever" is the worst one. There are many reasons why I feel this way, but the two big reasons are: 1. It made no sense. Up to this point, I believe only Robin had ever been shown smoking a cigarette. Now all of a sudden, they all are smokers. I'm not going to pretend that the writers haven't made mistakes before, but this was a little ridiculous. 2. It felt like a half-hour Marlboro ad. I think the intent was to discourage smoking, but I personally felt like it did the opposite. Awful episode in an otherwise very good series.
