Storyline

Lily has gone into labor, and Marshall is no where in sight. As Lily is feeling the physical pain associated with the contractions, she requires the assistance of Ted and Robin to keep her mind on other things by telling her stories of their past, whether she's heard the stories before or not. One of the longer but simpler stories involves the mysterious door at MacLaren's which one by one each walks through to experience the wonder on the other side. But as she makes it into the delivery room about to give birth, Marshall is still no where to be seen, although someone in her life is there, he who she may not want to see at this specific time. Meanwhile, a drunk Marshall is stranded in Atlantic City with Barney. They try one tactic after another to make their way back to New York City, most of those tactics surrounding the motorcycle to be won through one of the slot machines. As they eventually do manage to secure transportation, their ultimate destination is outside of their control... Written by Huggo

As season seven of "How I Met Your Mother" comes to a close, Ted and Robin make up and Lily gives birth.

Plot In A Paragraph: Lily has gone into labor, and Marshall is no where in sight. Ted and Robin try keep her mind on other things by telling her funny stories of their past. One of the longer but simpler stories involves the mysterious door at MacLaren's which one by one each walks through to experience the wonder on the other side. Meanwhile, a drunk Marshall is stranded in Atlantic City with Barney. But if Barney can manage to get Marshall to the hospital in time, his payment is be able to give the baby his middle name.

Its a charming little episode with some nice moments, Barney (as per usual brings the laughs) his 'Terminator Play' is genius, and as for the baby's name, it is brilliant.
