Now that the GNB headquarters is about to open, Ted decides to invite Professor Vinick to the opening ceremonies to show him wrong. Professor Vinick's response makes Ted hold onto that grudge even harder. For Robin, that person is her co-worker, Patrice, who is now dating Barney. Robin will not however admit that Patrice is her pit guy because she still loves Barney herself.

Barney Stinson: Marshall, I'm a grown ass man. I'm on my building's co-op board. When I say a pinot noir tastes luxuriously earthy with a hint of rhubarb? I'm not faking it.

Marshall jinxes barney and he is not allowed to say another word till his name is said by someone present in the time of jinx.

Ted's building is finally gonna open the next day. so he sends an R.S.V.P to his architecture professor back in college Professor Vinick. only to find that he refuses as he doesn't remember him. this leads to a road trip where Marshall and lily meet their hack amigo friend Daryl and Ted tries to have revenge over Vinick and barney tries to get out of the jinx.

meanwhile robin gets a chance to fire Patrice by sandy rivers her co host.
