Storyline

As Ted and Victoria are about to run off together, Ted convinces Victoria that she needs to leave a note for her fiancé Klaus to give him some closure on the situation. But leaving that note is not as easy as Victoria going back to the church. Ultimately to help Victoria, Ted may have to overcome a childhood phobia. Meanwhile, Quinn, who does not have a lot of what she considers close girl friends, asks Robin and Lily to stand up for her when she and Barney get married. This request brings up the fact that Quinn has no idea that Robin and Barney used to date, which Barney has no intention of ever telling her. In fact, Barney has managed to erase all history of his and Robin's romantic past. Sleep deprived new parents Marshall and Lily, and some deep seated beliefs of Klaus' will directly and indirectly affect what happens between both Ted and Victoria, and between Barney and Quinn.

Quotes

Barney Stinson: [after Quinn finds out Barney dated Robin and gives him exactly 1 minute to explain himself] Barney: Seven years ago when Marshall and Lily got engaged Ted saw Robin across a crowded room and I said "oh yeah you just know she likes it dirty," but Ted really liked her so we played "Haaave You me Ted?" They went to dinner, he walked her home, should have kissed her, didn't, lame. So he stole the Smurf penis, went back to her place, should have kissed her, didn't, lame.

the last thrill of the roller-coaster !
24 September 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

iv'e been waiting now four months for season 8 to premiere. and it starts off from last season showing a bit of the wedding and then getting back to present day. in present day everything from last season progress's nicely. 1st off Victoria redeems herself from the abandoning she did last season not by confronting her fiancé but by writing a letter. 2ndly Quinn decides to pick robin and lily as bridesmaids which leads her to finding out about barneys past relationship with robin. and 3rdly with the new baby in the gang we see funny moments of marshal and lily and how they haven't slept properly since the birth of their son Marvin..wait for it...Erikson. last but not least this episode ends off in a very nice way, just giving us a glimpse of Ted's future wife getting out of a cab and standing beside him at the train station,with the yellow umbrella. as you can imagine they don't reveal to us her face so we still don't know who it is but they definitely make it clear that she is very beautiful!!! enjoy!!!!!
