Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Serendipity (credit only)
Arielle Reitsma ...
Strip Club Patron


After his encounter with Quinn, Barney becomes infatuated with her. When he finds out that she works as a stripper in his favorite strip club, that infatuation doesn't stop. As he tries to persuade her to go out with him, Quinn has her own agenda. Meanwhile, as Robin has moved out of Ted's apartment after Marshall told her that staying would only hurt Ted in the long run, Ted tries to move on by figuring out something useful to do with Robin's old bedroom. Robin, not knowing where to go, is temporarily staying with Marshall and Lily in their Long Island house. Robin's stay may be longer than she first anticipated if only because Marshall and Lily, who have settled into suburban bliss, won't let her leave. As Robin tries to maneuver her way out of their house and back into the city, she learns why Marshall and Lily are so desperate for her to stay. Ted may provide the solution for Marshall and Lily's problem and well as his own. Written by Huggo

Barney decides to pursue Quinn, even after discovering she works as a stripper named Karma. Barney tries to ask her out on a second date, and although she appears interested, she continually avoids answering and only wishes to hang out at the strip club; she always claims her boss is watching, and requests more money to make it appear like she's working. while Ted says that Quinn is robbing him. mean while Robin has moved in with Lily and Marshall for a while, but becomes annoyed at their mundane lifestyle. When she attempts to flee one night, Lily and Marshall catch her. Since Robin had moved out, Ted has attempted to take his mind off her by using her empty room for various hobbies such as smoking meats, woodworking and pottery,always robin interrupts this with a conversation which takes place in Ted's mind. a few days later Ted leaves the place and gives it back to Marshall and lily and moves out of the apartment. the above summary title is a secret which can only be revealed when you see the episode yourself' it was a good himym episode. awesome funny episode it was legend wait for it dary.
