Storyline

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.

Quotes

Robin Scherbatsky: If I can't even get my best friends to watch, who's gonna watch?
Marshall Eriksen: Lots of people! You've got bed ridden insomniacs, bums camping outside a department store, people waiting in the ER, where the TV is in a cage so you can't change the channel...
Lily Aldrin: Oh, do you have any stalkers?
Robin Scherbatsky: Yeah. But even Leonard won't watch the show.

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??
