Barney is devastated to learn that his mother is selling the Staten Island house in which he grew up, which means packing up and putting away all his happy childhood memories. He convinces his friends to help him, his mother Loretta and his brother James pack up the house. When the gang are packing things up, what they see and learn is that Loretta told Barney and James what to them are obvious lies about their growing up period. While James quickly learned that they were lies when he was younger, Barney always believed and still believes everything Loretta told him. What Barney and James also find is an unmailed letter, the contents of which could affect one of their past and one of their future. Meanwhile, Lily and Marshall argue about what things they will tell their children about such issues as Santa Claus. And Robin tries to find a good balance of how to "sell" Ted to one of her girlfriends. Written by

Maybe you can convince those brain surgeons you pick up to believe you, but it won't work on us.
