Storyline

Quinn has moved in with Barney, but not all is all right with the living arrangement as Barney doesn't yet feel like he can be himself around Quinn in all its good and bad, which is manifested in part by his evening ritual just outside his apartment building. He decides to take refuge at Ted's new apartment. As Marshall is also there, Ted suggests that they make the evening their boys only triennial viewing of the Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977) trilogy, this triennial event which began in 2000 when Ted and Marshall were still at Wesleyan. Although the trilogy is the centerpiece of the get together, it has historically been more about where their life is at that the present time, predicting what their lives will be like in three years time at their next viewing, and reflecting on why their prediction from three years ago went so awry. In most respects, the 2003, 2006 and 2009 events were remarkably similar, but many current issues make the 2012 event a bit different. Written by Huggo

which father will in the world will go to this extent of telling the story to their kids.the kid will want to commit suicide before getting born.

they have simply run out of ideas and stretching this thing. they have no idea what the story line will be so they fill the 20 min with sense less material or running around, which r not funny anymore and 5 min of story.
