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 ...

Lin-Manuel Miranda!
23 January 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The episode could not be any better To find a script clearer, pretty perfect to the letter But sitting there on the bus, looking cuter than a panda We meet a playwright most awesome - Dropping licks that can't quit, Lin-Manuel Miranda

So for all you haters of verse And, I hate to be terse This episode is great So y'all just stop the hate.

Are you still watching "How I Met Your Mother" I liked this episode, I think I'll have another... Since it's ten lines I must, and the verse length constrained, I must write more and never be restrained. Don't judge me Netflix, or you IMDb, It's just a review I want other to see.
