Ted is desperate to bring a "+1" to Robin and Barney's wedding, and currently has Jeanette as that +1 despite he realizing that she is crazy. Robin and Barney are so adamant that Jeanette not be Ted's +1 that Barney swears Ted to secrecy in how he is helping Ted find an alternate +1: by staging plays from his playbook, which he purportedly burned in front of Robin but in reality burned a fake book instead. If Robin finds out about the playbook, there may be no reason for Ted to have a +1 as there will be nothing for him to bring a +1 to.

This gallery showing may test Marshall's actual ability in this role. Written by
