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

Marshall Eriksen: So, I was trying to think how to best express how sexy you are to me. A song? A poem? And then it hit me: a board game!
Lily Aldrin: You just get women.
Marshall Eriksen: No, no, no! You'll like this. We ask risque questions and spicy dares to slowly move up your shapely legs. I call it "Shoots and Lilies"
Lily Aldrin: I would have guessed "Monopo-Lily"
Marshall Eriksen: Yeah, that would have been better.

Season Seven Back On Track
5 February 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Once again I'm starting my review of this episode with the same sentence. Neil Patrick Harris knocks it out if the park once again as Barney Stinson as "How I Met Your Mother" gets back on track.

Plot In A Paragraph: Kevin tells the gang that "everybody marries their parents", ruins Marshall and Lily's romantic evening, but will anything keep Barney from getting lucky with Nora? Meanwhile Kevin seems to be finally getting fed up with Ted and Robin's close relationship!

Any episode that features the brilliant Neil Patrick Harris's character Barney Stinson in the main storyline is always excellent. I could go on and on about the brilliance of this episode, and in particular Neil Patrick Harris but I won't bore you with it.

This is a really fun episode, Jason Segel and Alyson Hannigan are both excellent, but Kal Penn continues to be painful to watch (and he looks to be in it for the long) but at least Nazanin Bondiadi is still returning as Nora. Which more than makes up for it as I really like her.
