A perceived problem is that most of Marshall's family now hate Lily for walking out on him in the first place.

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

Receptionist: Aaww... I'm gonna waive this waiting period right now!
Lily Aldrin: Really?
Receptionist: Is what I would say if I could waive the waiting period but unfortunately only a judge can do that.
Lily Aldrin: Oh, so can we see a judge?
Receptionist: Absolutely!
Lily Aldrin: Really?
Receptionist: Is what I would say if there was any chance of you seeing a judge today, which there isn't.
Marshall Eriksen: [Clenched teeth] Why are you doing this to us?

Barney's Gambling Secret Revealed

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.
