Storyline

Barney feels like the gang is slowly falling apart. Despite not knowing exactly what it is but knowing that they would all have a good time at it, he got five ringside tickets to go see "Robots vs. Wrestlers" for himself, Ted, Marshall, Lily and Robin, knowing full well that Robin would now decline in her want to establish a relationship with Don away from specifically her two ex-boyfriends. Marissa Heller may be the cause of Ted also drifting away from the group, he who feels unappreciated whenever he tries to bring a little culture into the proceedings. So when the four crash an upscale party, Ted feels like he's met a crowd who he not only likes (including film director Peter Bogdanovich, political columnist Arianna Huffington and New York Times crossword puzzle editor Will Shortz), but who allow him to be cultured. But can Ted be cultured all the time? A recent doppelgänger sighting may provide him the answer. Meanwhile, Marshall and Lily wait for a specific sign to let them know ... Written by Huggo

Trivia

Although it is true there is an "Alberta Building" in New York (at Riverside Park), it is not the one depicted in the episode, and the name of the architect, Lewis Lamar Skolnick, is completely made up. In fact, Lewis Skolnick and Lamar were both characters in Revenge of the Nerds. See more »
