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

Towards the end of the episode, Ted sees Robin on a beer label. This label reads "Wharmpess Gold" which is a beer created by Randy Wharmpess (Will Forte) who worked with Marshall and Barney at GNB until Marshall fired him in the episode "Canning Randy" (S6E7) to allow Randy to create his own brewery.

Lily and Marshall hold their baby shower. However, Ted and Robin separately miss the shower on purpose to avoid seeing each other. Because Ted had been eager to avoid Robin for as long as he can, Barney encourages Ted to try online dating and sets him up with three specific women. all these women turn out to somewhat link her to robin.

Meanwhile, Barney's relationship with Quinn hits a bump when he offers her a job and she refuses as she likes her own job. With the baby's impending birth, Marshall conditions himself for various parenthood situations by using a watermelon as a practice baby. Lily is not happy with what he is doing and sends him to Atlantic city with Barney by saying it is a baby boot camp in the Paramus Waldorf. barney asks Marshall to switch off his phone in exchange for one hour of ducky tie time in which he gets drunk to the point he needs subtitles to speak. meanwhile lily goes into labor and leaves a lot of messages to barney and Marshall who have incidentally switched of their phone.
