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

Quotes

Ted Mosby: [Commenting on Marshall's Pumpkin Latte joke] Alright, there's only two reasons she'd laugh at that: one, it's the first joke she's ever heard, or two, she likes you! You should totally ask her out!
Marshall Eriksen: [Unsure] You think?
Ted Mosby: Yeah! That's why you're not back with Lily, right? So you can experience what it's like to be single.

Swarley
26 November 2014 | by See all my reviews

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.
