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.

Another Tearjerker Of An Episode
27 January 2015 | by See all my reviews

Anothersad episode of "How I Met Your Mother" with this one dealing with the funeral, after the heartbreaking death of Marshall's beloved Dad in the last episode.

Plot In A Paragraph; All the gang head to Minnesota for Marvin Ericsson's funeral. Everybody wants to be there for Marahall and all believe they know their role. Marshall meanwhile is struggling with his Dad's last words to him, which were to rent "Crocodile Dundee 3".

Jason Segel and Alyson Hannigan again knock it out of the park. They are fantastic. I'm surprised Ted didn't take Zoe with him to the funeral (following on from the joke in the episode 'Say Cheese') but since I don't care for the character, I don't miss her!!
