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

Ted quotes SunTzu, saying "Never give up, never surrender. " This is actually a quote from the movie Galaxy Quest, which is what he tells Robin after she says the quote to him earlier, as seen later in the episode. 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

Ted Mosby: You know what Robin? Been thinking about it, guess it's kind of nice you're such a badass.
Robin Scherbatsky: It's pretty badass you're so nice Ted.

They are totally losing it... :(
7 February 2012 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

This episode truly was a low-point, there was simply nothing, and really nothing funny in there. I wish I could say something better, because I love this series, but this season is simply abysmal as it is. It lost punch and speed a while back already. Too bad!! And this episode was simply bad, really bad... They threw a whole bunch of things together, yet it didn't gel, nor was it funny. The guidelines require me to write at least ten lines, so I will keep writing, but the summary is simply: not funny! Dear writers, you've given us some hilarious episodes, I've been crying of laughter before, so what happened?
