Storyline

One day when Ted, Barney and Marshall are hanging out at the coffee house instead of the bar, they notice that the beautiful female barista seems to be into Marshall. With Marshall now being single, Ted and Barney encourage him to go after her. Chloe, as she is named, is indeed interested in him. But later when Marshall and Chloe run into Ted and Barney, Ted and Barney encourage Marshall to not date her. The reason?: she has "crazy eyes", which is indicative of a crazy personality. But Marshall doesn't heed their warning and goes out on a date with her. On their date, it's not Chloe that ends up coming off as crazy. Meanwhile, the gang are now calling Barney by a new name, a name that was written on his cup at the coffee house: Swarley. The more he says he hates the name, the more they all call him that and variations of it. Written by Huggo

Trivia

During the final scene, Barney walks into the bar and is teased about the 'Swarley' name. He storms out, and we hear the Cheers theme, "Where Everybody Knows Your Name". To further honor that classic sitcom, the ending credits are presented in the same font as that on Cheers. See more »

Goofs

Scott places Marshall's cup on the counter making a noise that the cup is clearly empty. See more »

Swarley

One of the best episodes.

Plot In A Paragraph: Ted, Barney and Marshall are hanging out at a coffee house, they notice that Chloe the beautiful female serving them seems to be into Marshall. Ted and Barney encourage him to. But later when Marshall and Chloe run into Ted and Barney, Ted and Barney encourage Marshall to not date her, saying she has "crazy eyes", which is indicative of a crazy personality. But Marshall doesn't listen to their warnings and goes on a date with her. Meanwhile, the gang are now calling Barney by a new name, a name that was written on his cup at the coffee house by Chloe "Swarley". The more he says he hates the name, the more they all continue call him it.

Once again Neil Patrick Harris brings the laughs and Alyson Hannigan is also excellent again too!! She is quickly becoming my second favourite behind NPH.
