Storyline

Marshall runs into his law school buddy Brad, who now seems to be down and out, and a bit of a deadbeat. Since he was a friend, Marshall can't help but try to help him by getting him at least a job interview at his law firm, Honeywell & Cootes. Lily and his friends don't think it's such a good idea as nice guy Marshall is already seen as being a bit of a "stamp tramp" - a person who provides his stamp of approval on anything and everything, which over time renders that approval meaningless - and this could prove to hurt Marshall, especially if Brad is indeed a deadbeat, and as Honeywell, who would be conducting the interview, is already hard enough on Marshall. Marshall's stamp of approval of Brad has a slightly different effect than he imagined. In the discussion of stamp tramps, the gang believes Ted is a "piggyback stamper" - someone who believes his stamp of approval is his own idea, but only really approves something somebody else has already approved. Ted goes on a long quest ... Written by Huggo

Trivia

About 11 1/2 minutes in, Marshall's boss says "that man is the human equivalent of what came out of my body after eating that soup you recommended." This soup is from the restaurant that Lily got soup from just before she found out she was pregnant (The Blue Bowl Restaurant, in the episode "Challenge Accepted"). She said her and Marshall continue to eat there despite getting food poisoning there on at least 3 occasions because it is so good. See more »

Quotes

Ted Mosby: Marshall Eriksen, you just came back from your third date with Lily. How was it?
Marshall Eriksen: Great. Yeah. I just... I think I'm falling for this girl. Pretty hard. But isn't everything happening too fast? I mean, maybe I should see other people.
Ted Mosby: No, dude, no! Lily Aldrin is special. You hold on to that girl!
Marshall Eriksen: She is. But I'm only 18 and...
Ted Mosby: Marshall. You being 18 isn't a bad thing. It just means that you get to spend more of your life with her. I mean, I'm probably not gonna meet my wife until I'm, like... ...

Not Many Laughs
14 February 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Despite a decent ending, this episode misses the mark as beside the Barney plot, there are not many laughs to be had

Plot In A Paragraph: Marshall runs into his law school buddy Brad, who now seems to be down and out. Marshall tries to help him by getting him a job interview at his law firm, Honeywell & Cootes. Lily and his friends don't think it's such a good idea as nice guy Marshall is already seen as being a bit of a "stamp tramp" - a person who provides his stamp of approval on anything, In the discussion of stamp tramps, the gang believes Ted is a "piggyback stamper" - someone who believes his stamp of approval is his own idea, but only really approves something somebody else has already approved. Meanwhile, Barney has to abandon his regular strip club, since Quinn has gone back to working there.

At least Jason Segel got some decent screen time.
