Episode complete credited cast:


The opening ceremonies of the new GNB headquarters is soon happening, and all of Ted's friends plan on being there to support him and help him celebrate his achievement. The one friend who won't be there is Barney, who admits to Ted that he is planning on asking Patrice to marry him that evening. Barney swears Ted to secrecy. Ted however feels that Robin has a right to know if only because he believes that she still loves Barney. Ted has to decide if his vow of secrecy to Barney or Robin's lifetime happiness is more important. If he does decide to tell Robin, that may signify that he himself has finally let Robin go romantically. Marshall and Lily are able to attend the ceremony as Mickey has given them an early Christmas present: twenty-four hours of consecutive babysitting service. This time will be their first extended time away from Marvin, and they are looking forward to it. Beyond attending the opening ceremonies, Marshall and Lily plan on getting down and dirty with each other.... Written by Huggo

Robin Scherbatsky: [Robin has read the play entitled "The Robin" and sees Barney] Seriously, Barney? Even you, even someone as CERTIFIABLY INSANE as you must realize that this is too far! You lied to me, manipulated me for weeks - do you really think I could ever kiss you after that? Do you really think I could ever trust you after that?

Robin Scherbatsky: This, this is proof of why we don't work, why we'll never work, so thank you. You've set me free because how could I be with a man who thinks that this ...

One of the best episodes ever
30 March 2013 | by See all my reviews

If you don't like this episode then you're stupid. This is one of the best HIMYM episodes ever produced. The emotion in this episode tops any so far and it is such a feel-good moment to see the breakthrough that Barney makes into realizing that he wants to spend the rest of his life with one single woman and put his previous life behind him, helping him discover that it doesn't take being with multiple women to make him happy, it just takes one very special one. Robin is clearly the one to make him realize that by being one of the only people who can actually keep Barney in line and make him reflect on his life and actions. Barney also shows the love he has for his friends by finding a way to get Ted's approval to propose and subsequently marry his ex-girlfriend who everyone thought he would never be able to let go of. Barney is a complex character portrayed perfectly by Mr. Neil Patrick Harris and his character development is only furthered by an outstanding cast. I can watch this countless times and never get tired of it. I'll be lucky if I can ever find a girl I love enough to go to these lengths to win over.
