Storyline

Marshall is sitting around with Ted, Barney, Ranjit and William Zabka talking about, among other things, Marshall soon becoming a judge. It makes Marshall think about how Lily gave up so easily about her dream to move to Italy after going missing for a few hours after their heated and very passionate argument. As such, Marshall wants to find out what Lily did during those few hours that made her change her mind. Billy mentions that he thinks he saw Lily get into a car at a local store down the road, that car who Marshall figures out belongs to The Captain.

Trivia

As in "Romeward Bound" (#8.21) Marshall says one line in Italian " Non Mastroianni tutti i funyuns " meant to be the translation for " don't Bogart all the funyuns ". He substitute the name Bogart with the name of a famous Italian actor ( Mastroianni ) but the line doesn't work in Italian. See more »

It's Powerful
10 March 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This show began as a surprising comedy that's retained high viewings and exceptional reviews since it's debut nearly 10 years ago.

Over the years there have been some powerful seasons, some powerful episodes. "Three Days of Snow" and the finale of season 4. "The Time Traveller" was also another infamous episode that managed to bring many of its viewers to tears.

Though season 9 started out a little bit rough, I held out hope that the writers would pull it together and give us the final season we deserve.

And sure enough they have.

This episode continues the streak of powerful, emotional episodes. I've never had a show conjure so much emotion inside of me. From the beginning we're told it's Ted's love story, but it's not Ted's love story. It's Marshall's and Lilly's and Barney's and Robin's love story as well, and boy have they managed to tell them in a way no other show has managed to do before.

The entirety of this episode was absolutely incredible. Marshall and Lilly's experience during this episode was moving, and Robin's realization at the end is terrifying.

Overall, this show is amazing, and it tells love stories how they really are.

Freaking superb. I do not want this show to end.
