Storyline

Now that Marshall and Lily are back together, they have to decide if that means that an imminent wedding is also part of their future. After some convincing by Marshall for Lily to woo him the right way, they do decide to get married. A perceived problem is that most of Marshall's family now hate Lily for walking out on him in the first place. To avoid the wrath of the Eriksen's at a wedding ceremony, Marshall and Lily decide to go to Atlantic City to elope, with only their three closest friends by their side.

But once there, Marshall and Lily run into an obstacle that it takes three days to get a marriage license in New Jersey.

Ted is preoccupied with Robin's ... Written by Huggo

Goofs

Lilly asks the Captain if he can take them out to international waters and marry them. He says he can. But when he marries them on his ship. The Atlantic City skyline is only a few hundred yards away. International waters are recognized as 12 miles out from a countries shoreline. At twelve miles Atlantic City would still be able to be seen. But it would be mostly a glow on the horizon. See more »

Plot In A Paragraph: Lily and Marshall decide to elope to Atlantic City to get married and the gang drop everything to go with them to celebrate the occasion. However getting married in Atlantic City proves to be harder than they ever anticipated. Can Barney win them the money to get married by a captain at sea.

Barney (Neil Patrick Harris) actually spoke reasonably accurate Mandarin Chinese during this episode. The game they played can be loosely translated as "Can or Cannot?"

Once again Neil Patrick Harris brings the laughs and Alyson Hannigan and Jason Segel also excellent again too!! They are quickly becoming my favourites behind NPH.

A bonus point in the rating for the scene where Barney plays the game.
