Storyline

Having dropped Daphne and the Hummer off, Marshall and Marvin are now on a bus to the Farhampton Inn. Marvin, however, is cranky, so Marshall does the only thing that will get him to sleep - something that Lily discovered worked recently - which is to read him poems in rhyme. But Marshall left Marvin's rhyming book in the Hummer, leaving Marshall to come up with rhyming stories of his own, with the help and often exasperation of his fellow passengers. As one rhyme works, something happens on the bus to awaken Marvin again crying. The stories that Marshall tells Marvin, however inappropriate, are: "Mosby at the Bat", where Ted tries to figure out if a dinner he is having with a Physics professor named Lisa is a business dinner or a date; "Robin Takes the Cake", where Robin steals and eats a wedding cake and the reason why; and "Barney Stinson: Player King of New York City", where Barney, while contemplating hitting on a woman in the bar, explains why, against Lily's assertions to the ...

Quotes

Gus: Uh I've just been handed a news flash. The word "Canada" is unrhymeable. It's easier to - I don't know - get drunk and try to climb a bull. But Canada, damn it, ask any man on the planet and watch their stammerin' stamina as they clamor and cram it into the middle of a sentence for a shot at repentance, pass the problem on to all their non-rhyming descendants. I've never met anyone who could clean up after Canada. Except my Uncle Tony from the Bronx. He's a janitor.

I don't like to waste my time, but this time HIMYM did it with a rhyme.
25 November 2013 | by See all my reviews

The story of this was kind of pointless, nothing that made me feel full of bliss. Nothing of this really matters, all these episodes just keep getting "badder". This show used to make me joyful, now just a little mournful. The writers don't seem to know what their doing, nowhere that's where this story is going. Please don't rush these episodes for the cash, Because so far these episodes can kiss my... In all seriousness though these episode are going downhill. We all know about those episodes that are made just for fun, and these rhymes were impressive, but give us something good before you decide to go and have fun.
