Marshall and Marvin are almost at the Farhampton Inn, they who get a ride for the final stretch from an unexpected source, the driver who seems to know just a little too much about Marshall's life without he knowing who she is. Meanwhile, someone associated with the wedding that neither Robin or Lily seems to know approaches them. As they try to figure out who he is, he ends up working his charm on them, before something he says ends up driving them apart, perhaps forever. That same person does exactly the same thing later with Barney and Ted. Marshall's current chauffeur may be able to shed some light on who this person is, and why a "bass player wanted" ad is the final straw for her in wanting to get her revenge on him. And Ted and Barney discuss what Ted sees as Barney's overuse of the phrase "that's the dream". They have to decide what really is "the dream" for both of them. Written by Huggo

Did You Know?


The Mother: This is my band. I started it. And if anyone is getting fired here, it's you, Darren. So hit the bricks, s-skunk... junk.
[to Linus]
The Mother: Is that even a little bit intimidating?
Linus: Nope, and the knitting's not helping.
The Mother: I'm sorry, I just met this baby and he needs a hat.
Linus: What? You can't fire Darren. He gets how hilarious and adorable I am. Plus it is so inspiring how he overcame his mother being eaten by a barracuda.
The Mother: Gah! It's Finding Nemo. That's new. There's no defeating the devil. New plan. Linus, if ...

Half-funny, but not great
16 December 2013 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

Since this season hasn't lived up to any of our expectations yet, it's been very slow and sometimes plain boring. This episode is clearly not one of the better episodes of the series, but not the worst either. Some parts are actually touching, Barneys and Teds conversation about what you would do for your best friend is really good. But many things were boring. For example Darren takes way too much room in this episode and just becomes annoying as the episode progresses. Linus is as unfunny as usual, the whole discussion about who's rooting for who is silly. It was a bit sad that after 13 episodes we still hadn't seen more than about 10 minutes of the mother. But this episode at least gives us some of her, and a bit of information about her as a person. And the best part is that everybody has arrived to the hotel, including the mother. So I believe that we will see more of her in the following episodes. So while there are some laughs and touching moments in this episode, it won't be remembered by me as something renewing, but since it seems that we've hit a turning point now I can't dismiss it either. 6/10
