Storyline

Their friend Max spotting Woody Allen at Gregor's restaurant downtown gets the gang discussing what constitutes a real New Yorker. They all feel that Robin isn't one, while she believes she knows the city better than the rest of them. That starts an impromptu race to Gregor's seven miles away, with Robin believing taking a taxi is the fastest, Lily the subway and Ted the bus. Barney has a special plan which involves a leisurely steak meal. And Marshall needs to run the seven miles, which he really doesn't understand why until later in the day. But each really needs to win this race to compensate for something happening in their respective life. As the five go through the process of trying to get to Gregor's, talk show host Maury Povich factors into the equation of being a New Yorker for all of them. Written by Huggo

Trivia

When Barney faked his heart attack he called out to Elisabeth. This is a reference to "Sanford and Son". Fred Sanford would clutch his chest and yell "I'm coming Elisabeth" when he pretended to have an attack. [Moderator: This should probably be under references but there was only a link to add movie references. This is a reference to a TV series] See more »

Goofs

The man who steals a cab from Robin is the same man on the subway who calls Lilly an idiot at the beginning of the race. This man is Maury Povich and is seen many time's throughout this episode as a running gag. See more »

Quotes

Ted Mosby: [the gang debates about what the essence of being New Yorkers really is] I'd say you're not a real New Yorker until you've stolen a cab from someone who needs it more than you do.
Lily Aldrin: No, you're not a New Yorker until you've cried on the subway and not given a damn what anyone thinks.
Marshall Eriksen: No, you're not a real New Yorker until you've killed a cockroach with your bare hand.
Narrator: And Robin would do all three of these before the day was out.

A Drop In Quality, But Still Fun
26 January 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

It was inevitable after 3 quality episodes at the start of season 6, there would be a drop somewhere, and here it is!! A silly but still fun episode.

Plot In A Paragraph: At Maclarens the gang discussing what constitutes a real New Yorker. They all feel that Robin isn't one, while she believes she knows the city better than any of them. After Woody Allen is spotted at Gregor's restaurant downtown, it starts an impromptu race to Gregor's seven miles away, with Robin believes a taxi is the fastest, Marshall needs to run the seven miles, Lily uses the subway and Ted catches the bus. Meanwhile Barney has a special plan. But each really needs to win this race to compensate for something happening in their respective life.

As usual Neil Patrick Harris is the best thing in the show, but Alyson Hannigan and Jason Segel are not far behind him.
