Ted and Marshall hijack Barney for what is his surprise bachelor party. The timing of their hijack leaves Robin high and dry to spend dinner alone with Loretta, to which Robin is not looking forward. Barney, who coins his party as his "bro mitzvah", is quietly excited for what most men would define as one of the defining evenings of their life. However, he is skeptical that Ted and Marshall can pull off his dream bachelor party, as most men's bachelor party is like a standard evening out for Barney. But Ted and Marshall are confident that they can do his party justice, especially as they paid attention to Barney's previous description of his dream bachelor party. But will Ted and Marshall's interpretation of Barney's description match Barney's own? Written by Huggo

Barney's Bro-Mitzvah Absolute Requirements are: booze, cigars, strippers, fear for our lives, mind-blowing entertainment, karate kid appearance, "alone time" for me during the strip show, tell crazy sex stories, spontaneous decision we regret, spend way too much money ($$$), lose a bro at some point, at least one real moment between bros, and see a girl-fight.

Great episode after much time...
1 May 2013 | by See all my reviews

well this episode is about bachelor party for Barney... nice twist though... you will love it if you love your friends getting teased... i almost having disinterest in HIMYM... but this episode changed my interest... i like the Chinese mob idea... also that North Korean joke... n Quin is looking hot as stripper and the best part is The Karate Kid... the writers has worked smartly for story as well as Joke like you are doing this to Barney, I love it... and Barney's mom is great, the way she is teaching to do it, with bread- sticks and Ring... awesome... now i am hoping for more good episode from writers...

show more BARNEYISM...!!!
