Marshall and Lily think that it's time they got their own place. Lily automatically thinks they should rent, but Marshall gets it into his mind that he wants to buy, not knowing yet about Lily's massive credit card debt. What's worse is that the first place they look at, Marshall loves without the real estate agent even needing to do a sell job to them. It's in a neighborhood real estate agents coin Dowisetrepla, of which they've never heard. Marshall finally finds out about their financial issues once they try to secure a mortgage. Beyond the argument Lily and Marshall have the size of their debt, Lily comes up with an unconventional solution to their problem. But will they ever find out what Dowisetrepla means? Meanwhile, Barney secures a key to the condominium that Marshall and Lily want to buy. His purpose?: to pretend that the place is his own so that he can sleep with a woman there for a one time only purpose, leave and never have to see her again.
