Storyline

Ted still isn't ready to see Robin. To help Ted get over her, Barney persuades him to try online dating, even down to picking the women Ted should date. But when Ted goes on these dates, he sees only one thing: Robin. He has to figure out if that actually means that he is still in love with her despite needing to get over her. Meanwhile, Barney himself has gotten to the point of being jealous of all the men Quinn meets professionally. As much as he likes certain parts of her being a stripper, he does whatever he can to persuade her to quit and find another job. And although it is still five weeks until Lily's due date, Marshall is treating the time like the baby has already arrived, which is driving Lily crazy and making both a little sleep deprived. Lily has her own plan of getting Marshall back into the here and now. Written by Huggo

When Barney is trying to help Ted with online dating, he says he uses his "own, personal logarithms" to search for the right girl for Ted. Given he's setting up search criteria, the line should have been "algorithms". See more »

Barney Stinson: Okay, that's it bro, we're turning off our phones for one hour.
Marshall Eriksen: Motion denied.
Barney Stinson: Okay, you leave me no choice. Proposal, you give me one hour of phone-free bro time during which we - and by "we" I mean you - get magnificently, mythologically drunk, I'm talking needing-subtitles-when-you-speak drunk. If you can give me that, I... will wear this.

Return Of The Ducky Tie
11 February 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

For some explicable reason the TV channel I'm watching the reruns on, skipped the last episode, and went straight on to this one!! I hate it when it does that!!

Plot In A Paragraph: Barney has gotten to the point of being jealous of all the men his stripper girlfriend Quinn meets at work. As much as he likes to brag about her being a stripper, he does whatever he can to persuade her to quit and find another job. Meanwhile Ted still isn't ready to see Robin. To help Ted get over her, Barney persuades him to try online dating, even down to picking the women Ted should date. Meanwhile, Marshall is driving Lily crazy in his training to prepare for the baby's arrival, so she arranged for Barney to take him on a little trip.

Neil Patrick Harris features heavily in this episode, which is a good thing as the guy is a genius. Any project instantly becomes better once his name is in the cast.
