Storyline

Zoey's husband, the Captain, doesn't know that Ted is the man for who Zoey left him. Intimidated by the Captain, Ted doesn't relish doing Zoey the favor of picking up a box of her belongings from her old apartment, but does it when she tells him that the Captain has left it with the doorman for her. So when Ted goes to pick up the box, he is dismayed to run into the Captain, who needs to talk to his good friend Ted about putting the man who stole Zoey away from him on the gangplank. Meanwhile, Marshall focuses his entire life on being good to the environment after watching a documentary on Garbage Island, this focus even to the exclusion of sex with Lily. Marshall finally opens up to his wife about why he has gone on this environmental bent. And Barney doesn't want to admit that his first date with Nora - his first ever date on Valentine's Day - resulted in him wanting another date with her. Robin tries to change that. Written by Huggo

Zoey Pierson: Oh man, this movie is scary.
Ted Mosby: [Scoundrel Ted] I know, right?
