Storyline

Ted is telling his kids the crisis he endured at the announcement of his mother's second marriage to free thinking Clint, whose every word about Ted's mother is of a sexual nature. Not being able to contain his horror not only in her marrying a man like Clint but her marrying for a second time before Ted even enters into his first marriage, Ted runs off in the middle of the reception. But when he emerges 72 hours later, Ted is a new, happier man. He has circumvented his own non-marriage status by buying a house. Although he considers it his dream house, the gang see a run down uninhabitable rat trap. The home inspector concurs. Lily thinks she has at least a cathartic solution to Ted's problem. But it's Marshall who knows deep down what Ted will do. Meanwhile, Robin and Barney have differing stories about which of the two of them cried at Clint's sexually charged wedding serenade to and about Ted's mom.

Trivia

When Barney is having a flashback of driving Ted's mom to the airport (about 15 minutes in), he says "and that's how you got the brooch." This is a continuation of the conversation Barney and her had in the episode Brunch (season 2, episode 3) where he asked about its origin. See more »

Drunk or Kid
26 April 2010 | by (India) – See all my reviews

A nice episode but not as funny as "Zoo or False" (man, the way Barney pulls off the Neil Armstrong statement is fantastic ).

As with Ted, we also don't meet the MOTHER, but we get introduced to his present home. Now that does that give an indication that his Wife will make an appearance soon. Cant say that... Initially, i didn't think the creators would take the series till 5 seasons without bringing her in, so they can get another 5 seasons as well.

Highlights: 1. Who cried? 2. Your p**** is enormous. 3. Drunk or Kid 4. Barney was planning to become Ted's dad 5. & of course... Mahatma Gandhi, and the pancakes, and the dragon and you…
