Lily is angry at Marshall for purposely booking the room at the inn that is purportedly haunted. Not that Lily is afraid of ghosts - or so she says - but that the inn management is using the excuse of the haunting as justification for the shoddy state of the room. This issue is the least of Marshall's worries as he learns that Daphne texted Lily with news that he accepted a job as a judge in New York, even after they decided to move to Italy. He asks all his friends individually to delete the last text on Lily's phone, "no questions asked", such a request which each owes him. As such, each may be working at cross purposes to the other in getting the task done. Meanwhile, Robin and Barney both realize that they still do things without consulting the other, which they can't continue to do if their marriage is to work. Written by Huggo

Did You Know?


In this episode, Marshall says he's never had a reason nor desire to ask Lily to do a favor for him "no questions asked". However, in S2E02 "The Scorpion and the Toad" after Lily returns from San Francisco and Barney has just "rack jacked" twins from Marshall, he asks her to do him a favor but to never ask him why. Lily then goes into the bar and throws a drink in Barney's face. Moments later, pretending to be her own twin, she does it again. See more »


Lily Aldrin: [scared due to storm outside and her supposedly haunted inn room] Maybe if it'll make *you* feel even better, you can sing me a version of Marvin's lullaby?
Ted Mosby: Night-night, little Lily / No ifs, ands, or buts / No peg-legged ghost is waiting / To hook out your guts.

Not appropriate for the FINAL season
30 October 2013 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

Normally I would have found "No questions asked" a decent episode - Marshall's fascination with ghosts and the gang's silly antics reminded me of the show's earlier seasons. However, the writers have a limited number of episodes to wrap up the show nicely and I really think they could have done better with this one. I think we all would have been very happy to see another scene with the mother, especially since Cristin Milioti has been credited as part of the main cast but we haven't seen her since episode 2, instead of yet another filler episode. I sincerely hope that the season will pick up after this episode, otherwise HIMYM's final season will prove to be a disappointing one. I give this episode 5 out of 10.
