  • Lily moves in with Ted and Marshall and although it was Ted's idea to ask Lily to move in, he starts to worry that the apartment changes too much with Lily there. Another issue for Ted is who will keep the apartment after Lily and Marshall got married. In the end, a real fight starts between Ted and Marshall over the apartment.

  • Ever since she and Marshall got engaged, Lily has basically been living at the guys' apartment. She hasn't even been back to her own apartment in about three months. But things change when she finds that her old apartment is no more (as she had no formal written lease), and has been converted into a Chinese restaurant. So Lily officially moves into Marshall and Ted's apartment. This brings up the question of who will get the apartment after Marshall and Lily get married. Both Ted and Marshall love the place - Ted specifically loving it just the way it is - and they have always put off talking about this issue. Barney and Robin believe that Marshall and Lily will slowly edge him out due to sheer numbers. When Lily starts to put her own stamp on the place, Marshall and Ted really do have to come up with a way to decide who will get it, with Lily being the unfortunately target of their battle. Meanwhile, Barney feels that he has wasted too much time in his life on dates that he knew were going nowhere, so he decides to implement the "lemon law" on his dates of giving the date five minutes before pulling the plug on it or not. Robin doesn't think five minutes is enough to really get to know someone, so Barney sets her up with someone who he believes she will know isn't right for her in five seconds, let alone five minutes. Will Robin stick out the entire date?

  • Lily moves in with Marshall and Ted, and when Ted suspects that he's being edged out of the apartment, he and Marshall decide to settle it like men.
