Storyline

As Lily's grandparents gave her and Marshall title to their house to do whatever they want, they have decided to sell it as a house on Long Island has little appeal to them, that is until they see how their real estate agent has elegantly furnished the house to show it and after they go back to their own apartment, which now seems really small in comparison. They break the news of their plan to move to Long Island by telling their friends that they are going to host Thanksgiving dinner at the house, and never leave. Robin in particular tries to talk them out of making the move, she who has more motives in wanting them to stay close to her in the city than usual. Meanwhile, both Barney and Ted are feeling like it has been a bad year for them with regard to their female relationships, Barney with the break-up with Nora and not getting Robin, while Ted had the bad issues with Zoey, Victoria and the Slutty Pumpkin. Rather than "play for the other team" together (which they do contemplate)... Written by Huggo

Much of the episode is centered around Ted and Barney becoming a couple to raise a child together. Neil Patrick Harris and Josh Radnor actually played a couple in the play "The Paris Letter". See more »

Goofs

When Barney arrives back from buying diapers, he attempts to place them on the table next to the door. He struggles to make them stay upright as they are not piled up correctly. Just as the camera angle is about to change, the pile begins to fall over but in the next shot the pile is in perfect order and standing up straight. See more »

Quotes

Marshall Eriksen: [Marshall talks to Lily about selling the house she inherited from her grandparents] Baby, your grandparents gave you this house outright. The way I see it, we have five options: number one, sell it. Number two, year-round haunted house. Three, giant fence around the perimeter. Chimp sanctuary, there's a swing around the backyard. Four, we destroy it with sledgehammers. I like four.
Lily Aldrin: Or five, we move in, raise our children, make this our family home.

Surprise Ending
7 February 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

For once Ted was a lot of fun this time around, how much of it was down to him sharing a plot with Barney is debatable, but it certainly didn't hurt.

Plot In A Paragraph: As Lily's grandparents gave her and Marshall their house on Long Island, they have decided to sell it, until they go back to their own apartment, which now seems really small in comparison. They break the gang of their plan to move to Long Island. Robin in particular tries to talk them out of making the move. Meanwhile, both Barney and Ted are feeling like it has been a bad year for them. Barney with the break-up with Nora and not getting Robin, while Ted had the bad issues with Zoey. Rather than "go gay" together (which they do talk about), they decide to adopt a baby together.

This episode has a surprise ending that I won't reveal, but overall this was a fun episode.
