In April 2013, Ted is feeling all alone with Marshall and Lily preoccupied with their family, Robin and Barney planning their wedding, and Ted without a significant other in his life. Barney asks Ted if he would like to go see "Robots Vs. Wrestlers Legends". Ted decides against it. Ted is visited by future versions of Barney and himself, who try to convince him to go or not to go with current Barney to the event. The visit by these future versions of Barney and himself, who have the knowledge of what happens in the future, eventually opens Ted's eyes to why he has really received these visits. Meanwhile, Marshall embarks on a battle with Robin as Robin has received credit at MacLaren's for a cocktail he created, while Lily vows to stay neutral in their battle. Written by
Did You Know?
In the toilet, Robin writes: "Dear Marshall, I know this is a strange way to apologize but I'm sorry I let Carl name your drink after me. Why didn't I say something? Gosh, I guess that goes back to my childhood. Did you know that for the first two years of my life my dad treated me like a cat? Seriously, I wasn't permitted on the furniture, I had to bathe myself, and I was only allowed to poop in a box. Ironic that this all comes out in a bathroom. A place that for so long I yearned to be. This tiled prison that eluded my saddened grasp was a haven. The unreachable. When I finally did demand a bathroom visit, my dad applauded my moxie. And that's the only time my father ever said he was proud of me. Maybe that's why I stole credit for your drink. Maybe that's why I needed to pour my heart out like this. Or, maybe I wrote this so you'd be in here long enough for a lady to walk in, causing you to freak out and hide in the stall. GOTCHA!! love, Robin (creator of the Robin Scherbatsky)" See more
Okay, how about this: we go to Robots vs Wrestlers, but I don't drink too much.
I'm good with that.
No, forget it! If Ted doesn't get wasted, there's no way he'll end up making out with that surprisingly realistic-looking female robot!
Wait, I kiss a female robot?
Oh, you do a lot more than that!
