Storyline

Marshall and Lily and Robin and Kevin having been double dating. Robin and Kevin have had to endure watching Marshall and Lily fight all the time, while they say that they don't fight. Regardless, Kevin decides that he wants to move to the next step with Robin: he asks her to marry him. After thinking about the proposal, Robin thinks she knows how she will answer, but first she needs to clear the air which may change the picture entirely. Meanwhile, despite Barney having a sure thing, he acts as wing man for Ted. Quinn, the wing girl of Ted's prey for the evening, ends up being wise to Barney's manipulative ways. For missing out on his sure thing, Barney believes that Ted owes him one. What Barney wants as his payment, after hearing about it from Marshall and Lily, is for him and Ted to take the "drunk train" i.e. the last train out to Long Island where everyone inebriated is willing to go to bed with anyone else on board. The drunk train experience doesn't end up being what either ... Written by Huggo

A notch up, finally.
15 February 2012 | by (Malaysia) – See all my reviews

I posted a review on the previous episode about the Beekeeper, and I am grateful that this episode has had the season finally going somewhere. Although not as funny as how I'd like it to be, it was a major development for at least 3 main characters. What I did not see coming was the twist in the end and if this goes on like how I see it to be, it would be contradictory to some of the previous episodes: the fact that Ted referred Robin to his kids as 'Aunt Robin'.

Nevertheless I'm glad that this episode has made some sort of progress in its main plot. Contradictory or not I would definitely be tuning in to find out the outcome of Barney's potential crush and especially what happens next between Ted and Robin. Hope that the content of upcoming episodes(whats left of the season anyway) would make me laugh as hard as I did for some, and not stray away like it did for many previous episodes in season 7. What we needed was suspense, drama, and development, not pointless humor and stalling. This episode did indeed make up for a substantial amount of progression that was suppose to be due much, much more earlier than this.
