Trivia

According to the DVD commentary of this episode, there was a scene where the suits moved and talked to Barney in different accents. It was cut out because of the 18 minute limit they had due to the song at the end being 3 minutes long. You can see a suit move at the end of the episode,it was going to be a follow up to this.

this episode of how i met your mother is special as it makes how i met your mother a 100 episode old. as Ted becomes one more step closer to meeting the mother. while barney faces a strong inner conflict as to whether suit down or to lose sleeping with as he says a "10". i loved this episode as it was practically a Broadway show. the title girls vs suits is apropos as barney thinks of suits as his life partners and friends while he considers women on the opposite side as objects, barney as always has been apart from the gang as a single ready to mingle guy but in season 5 he finally kicks of his dating life but till girls vs suits he breaks up with robin his girlfriend . this i suppose makes him realize that women in his life are as he says 'i got them coming and going, what up'. therefore he decides which is more important to him suits or women
