Storyline

Since Marshall had been busy with work, a stressed Lily singlehandedly planned their housewarming party, and was worried that it was going to be a disaster. Her premonition came true. Over a five minute period during the party, a series of events that took place simultaneously in the living room, dining room and kitchen resulted in what to the untrained eye looked like a confusing mess if knowledge of only what was happening in one of those three rooms was known, but made total sense when viewed from all three rooms combined. Some of the issues and topics of conversation that led to the disaster included Robin's confrontational nature versus Ted's non-confrontational nature, Marshall pondering whether he should refuse boss Garrison Cootes' demand that they return to work in the middle of the party, Mickey's new beekeeping hobby, what happened to a plate of vegan spring rolls, why Lily didn't want anyone to eat the block of Gouda that Marshall served, and Barney's even more than usual ...

Trivia

Despite being from Canada, a country known for being extremely polite, in the episode, Robin is accused by both Ted and Marshall of being someone who yells at strangers unprovoked. See more »

Goofs

Robin asks to borrow the oven to heat up the dish she and Ted brought to the housewarming party, but neither Robin or Ted turns the oven on. It's possible the oven was already on, but that's unlikely since the oven is empty when Ted opens it. See more »

Quotes

Robin Scherbatsky: [Ted and Robin talk about his confrontational skills, or lack thereof] I disagree. It's like Sun Tzu said, "Never give up. Never surrender."
Ted Mosby: That's Tim Allen from Galaxy Quest!

what is wrong with season 7
9 February 2012 | by (Philippines) – See all my reviews

In my very own opinion, chris elliott and kal penn did a fantastic job of SCREWING this season up. every time i see chris elliott it always reminds of that freakin' character from there's something about mary. he's sooo annoying. and as for kal penn he's just like a stick doesn't do much just there for no purpose at all. c'mon bays & thomas. i know you guys can do better than this! I've seen season 1-6 a hundred dozen times already and it never fails to impress but this, I say there are some bright spots (episodes: s7e10,s7e14 take note this episodes doesn't have those two people i was mentioning about.) this new season is slowly becoming an epic failure. PLEASE COMPOSE YOURSELVES BAYS AND THOMAS, AND GO BACK TO YOUR ROOTS before its too late.
