Storyline

Ted, Robin and Barney accompany Marshall and Lily to St. Cloud, Minnesota to support them at Marshall's father's funeral. At funerals, Robin always plays the role of "vice girl". Ted and Barney come to a decision that the best way they can help Marshall is to make him laugh during the day. And Lily vows to help Judy through the day despite the two never having been that close. The day gets off to a shaky start when their regular priest, Father Platt, can't perform the service, leaving that task to his son, Reverend Trey Platt, who, during their growing up period, was Marshall's nemesis, despite a physical disparity between the two. In preparing for the service, Marshall is asked about the last words his father ever spoke to him. As Marshall remembers back to the last day he saw his father, all he can remember are meaningless words uttered instead of something profound.

really awesome
18 January 2011 | by (Pakistan) – See all my reviews

I thought the show was going downhill lately, but the past two episode have been amazing. Sad, but amazing. Last nights was a mixture of every emotion. Laughter, sadness, etc.It was definitely a great episode with a lot of heart and meaning. Caught myself getting teary-eyed several times. Sent out a great message that I am sure a lot of people needed to receive.I thought the show dealt with the death of Marshall's father in a very touching manner. We should all think about our words and imagine that they are our last ones.to all the people who say this episode sucks, you need to realize that this series is one of the best the most absorbing television series that's come out in years.It's a comedy but it's also about the lives of these people. And the writers wanted to show them go through life as we all do, with the loss of people we love.cant wait to meet barneys's "uncle jerry"
