Storyline

After Barney's brother James meets Nora for the first time, he admits that he doesn't like Nora with Barney if only because her behavior is too reminiscent of their mother, Loretta. Kevin, in turn, states that it's not too unusual for people to end up with someone like their parent. That comment makes for a very uncomfortable romantic night for Marshall and Lily, the former whose discomfort is taken one step further. If Barney knew about James and Kevin's comments, his night may also be particularly spoiled as tonight is the night that he and Nora are going to make love for the first time. But other things may ruin their potential first time. Meanwhile, Kevin and Ted have to come to an understanding about the other's relationship with Robin. Written by Huggo

Goofs

In the letter Weird Al receives from young Ted on February 21, 1985, the letter says that he is 8 years old. In previous episodes it is confirmed that he was born in April of 1978, so the letter should be saying that he is 6 going on 7. See more »

Quotes

Narrator: Kids, in the fall of 2011, all my friends were in relationships. So when Barney's brother james cam to visit it created a slight logistical problem...
[Cut to the booth at MacLaren's, which is packed with Lily, Marshall, Nora, Barney, Kevin, Robin, Ted and James]
Marshall Eriksen: We're gonna need a bigger booth.
Nora: I'm going to go to the loo. I don't actually have to go, I just want a seat all to myself.
