Ted and Robin are out in the middle of the night looking for a missing Barney. Their conversation steers primarily to Ted's past love life, and their respective takes on the good and the bad. In this discussion, Ted also talks about when if any is the right time to let go of the things you love. Barney, meanwhile, is out wandering the streets in a drunken stupor. He comes across two young men named Justin and Kyle who are just coming into their sexual awakening. The threesome become mentor and eventually willing students. And after Lily storms out of the hotel room during her and Marshall's fight after he brings up San Francisco, Marshall continues the argument with several of the ghosts that are haunting that room.

When you love someone you just, you... you don't stop. Ever. Even when people roll their eyes or call you crazy. Even then. Especially then. You just- you don't give up because if I could give up... If I could just, you know, take the whole world's advice and- and move on and find someone else, that wouldn't be love. That would be... That would be some other disposable thing that is not worth fighting for. But that is not what this is.
