Storyline

What they can all agree on in the story telling is that their new friend Zoey agreed to set Ted up with her cousin, who shall be called "Honey" (as that's the only name Ted can remember of her as he relates the story to his children in 2030, "Honey" only a pet name they all used to describe the type of person she was), the most gullible person in the world. By the end of the evening, Ted did not go home with her. His reason: he's in love with married Zoey. Ted never wants to see Zoey again which places the others in a bind as they've come to really like Zoey and don't want to lose her as a friend.

Ted is Professor Plum, Zoe is Mrs. White, Honey is Miss Scarlet, Barney is The Reverend Green and Marshall refers to the Captain as Colonel Mustard. See more »

Goofs

In the beginning of the episode, their thanksgiving turkey was burnt. Robin said "I thought the oven was Celsius". Celsius is less than Fahrenheit, so the turkey would have been under-cooked, not burnt. See more »

Katy Perry Is A Lot Of Fun
27 January 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

It's been a while since "How I Met Your Mother" had a guest star, and Katy Perry pops up in this episode, and like Britney Spears before her, is surprisingly good.

Plot In A Paragraph: Marshall has stayed in Minnesota to help his mother following his Dad's funeral. Individually, all the gang telephone Marshall to relate a story to him regarding Ted. Zoey agreed to set Ted up with her cousin, who shall be called "Honey"the most gullible person in the world. By the end of the evening, Ted did not go home with her, he let Barney have her. His reason?? He announces he is in love with Zoey.

Gee I didn't see that coming at all!! The set up for Ted falling for Zoe was pathetically predictable. I didn't think I'd dislike a love interest for Ted, as much as I disliked Stella. But Zoe is ridiculously annoying. However Zoe looks like she will keep coming back, with her now being an established love interest for Ted, and for one, this reviewer is not happy.

There is a lot of fun in this episode tho, especially the Barney (when isn't Neil Patrick Harris a lot of fun??) and Honey (Katy Perry) part.
