Storyline

Ted sees a beautiful woman sitting alone at the bar reading a book. He and Barney argue on who gets the privilege of approaching her. After Ted wins the battle, he may change his mind as he soon finds out that she is a friend of an old girlfriend, Cindy, with who their relationship ended very badly. But Ted also remembers that Cindy's roommate - who Ted only saw the back of - could actually be Ted's soul mate. Will Ted risk approaching this woman while receiving the wrath of Cindy on the chance that that woman is Cindy's roommate? Meanwhile, Robin has had a difficult summer trying to get over Don, and the way she looks shows it. And Lily and Marshall have scheduled tonight as the first night they will try to conceive a child. Marshall has even saved himself for two weeks in preparation. But someone may get between Marshall and Lily getting together this evening: Marvin Sr., who is a little too involved in Marshall's life for Lily's liking. Written by Huggo

Goofs

There is a shot of the "fourth wall" behind the booth at McLarens that includes a wall which intersects the table and the wall of the booth behind Marshal. This contradicts the layout of McLaren's from several different episodes which involve shots of the "fourth wall". See more »

Quotes

Barney Stinson: It's a sad day in New York, Ted, a sad day indeed. You know what I saw on my way in here? A girl in a sweater. And you know what that means: the season of exposed skin is over, exactly! Gone are the tank-tops, Ted. Gone are the cute little skirts. Gone are the sundresses - the sundresses, Ted! I don't think I can make it another eight months with no sundresses.
Ted Mosby: Barney, I really - I have to grade these papers
Barney Stinson: I'm sorry, I'll let you work... But first, a riddle. What piece of women's attire, most...
