Marshall and Lily are doing many of their post-wedding tasks, such as writing thank you notes and preparing their individual "death folder", which is a package of information for the other in case of their untimely death. Lily implies that the folder should contain a personal letter, of which Marshall was not aware. He quickly writes a heartfelt letter to the love of his life. Unable to resist the urge, he opens Lily's letter which isn't quite what he was expecting. Robin, who had a good time in Argentina, can't seem to capture that joie de vivre she had while in Argentina, even though Gael is still doing those things he did in Argentina which made her so carefree. A move by Gael may show Robin if she really is cut out to be the "Argentina Robin". And impressed by how Gael attracts the women, Barney and Ted decide to take on that attribute they believe is attracting the women: being a foreigner who can only have a short term fling before heading home.

Did You Know?


In old Marshalls office in the end, there is a cutout from a newspaper where the headline is "N.Y.C lawyer captures 'Nesse'", a reference to how much Marshall adores the Loch Ness monster. See more »


When Robin slams the bedroom door after brandishing her gun to Gael's house guests, you can see the wall/door structure "wobble" from the force of the slam. Obviously, the set walls aren't as sturdy as a wall within a New York apartment would be. See more »


Marshall: I am such a jerk.
Barney: Yeah. Wait, why?

Different view of Argentina
9 August 2011 | by damadevSee all my reviews

OK i love "How i met your mother" and this is a good episode but i must say that the picture of Argentina is not correct at all. I can say that because i am from Argentina and the place they showed was nothing like it.People here are not hippies, don't use cowboy hats and marijuana is also illegal. The beaches in my country are not as hippie-like as they appear to be on the episode, guided by the house they show. Also it is strange that Robin when to the beach because we don't stand up on that type of landscape, we are known for our city of Buenos Aires and are beautiful mountains and falls. This is just my opinion but what is true is that for sure we are not cowboy-hatted hippies. It is funny because the Argentina they show in this episode is more similar to Brazil than any place in Argentina, although I'm happy they show it because most Americans don't even know where in the map we are.
