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

Marshall Eriksen: [voiceover narration] He rose to go approach this girl who commanded such intrigue, when Mommy interrupted...
Lily Aldrin: Dude, she's way out of your league! She's not in Daisy Dukes nor squeezed into a Hooters tee, and I don't see a Curves membership dangling from her key. She has no glaring spray tan, no unicorn tattoos. She's sipping chardonnay, not pounding cherry-flavored booze. She's not playing with her hair. There's very little chance she'll let you put it anywhere.
Barney Stinson: Your challenge is accepted, Lil. ...

Tried to make an effort
25 November 2013 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

The last episode was a tremendous failure. I mean just making episodes for the sake of it. Now, coming to this episode, it wasn't the best but one cannot also say better. Although, the way the producers seem to connect the dots of the season seems a little too much and gimmicky. The rhyming was a laudable effort and the stories presented were almost average but nothing seems to work now. But 22 minutes full of them seemed too long.

The laughs that made this show such a great one have almost reached their demise. They would rather have ended the show last season. Only a sincere effort would bring a great end to the series. I personally think the actors have even begin feeling tired of the monotonous storytelling. Not so good. I really hope the writers and producers are reading the reviews.
