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

Quotes

Ted Mosby: [Barney has just called dibs on a hot girl Ted asked him to make a short glance at. Ted is not amused] You can't call dibs on a girl that I've been sitting here thinking about eventually talking to at some point!
Barney Stinson: You never called dibs.
Ted Mosby: Dibs were implied!
Barney Stinson: "Implied" dibs?
Ted Mosby: Yeah!
Barney Stinson: Ted, you are spitting on the grave of Sir Walter Dibs, inventor of the dib. It was 1652, the SS Dibs was lost at sea...
Ted Mosby: [Ted interrupts him] I don't have time for a fake history lesson, so I'll keep this simple: You go over ...

Jason Segel & Alyson Hanigan Are Brilliant
26 January 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A really fun episode, Jason Segel and Alyson Hannigan are both excellent, as is the always brilliant Neil Patrick Harris.

Plot in A Paragraph: Ted is alone at the bar and sees a beautiful woman sitting alone reading a book. He is contemplating approaching her When Barney turns up, and calls "Dibs" on her, Ted and Barney argue over who gets the privilege to hit in 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. Meanwhile, Robin has had a difficult time trying to get over Don, and Lily and Marshall are trying to have a baby, but Marvin Sr., is a little too involved in Marshall's life for Lily's liking.

We also find out that Ted meets the kids mother at a Wedding where he is the best man.
