Plot Summary

  • Nick has sustained a groin injury, which means he has to lay off sex. It's during this time that Robin, who now has to talk to him while spending time with him, realizes that he's not the brightest light in the world, and perhaps she should break up with him. Her friends are on opposite sides of whether she should do so. Barney feels she should since they are obviously not compatible. Marshall and Lily on the other hand think she should ride out the non-sex stretch and things will be back to normal between the two of them when Nick is physically well again. Lily's belief is based on her need to live through Robin vicariously. Marshall's is because Nick is the star player in his after work basketball team, and believes he will quit the team if Robin breaks up with him. One side goes to an extreme to make sure Robin does what he wants. Meanwhile, non-athletic Ted has too formed his own ream in the same basketball league, although Ted's team of architects focuses their energies on something besides basketball.
