Child-hating Robin is dismayed at being pregnant, but is mildly surprised at Barney's reaction when she tells him that he's the father. Beyond how this situation will affect Robin's relationship with Kevin, they both go through a rollercoaster of emotions about being potential parents based on encounters with other people: Barney's with his pre-Ted wingman Insane Duane, and Robin's with Lily's gynecologist Dr. Sonya, who delivers additional news about her situation. Ted, who can tell that something's bothering Robin, tries, against her wishes, to cheer her up without knowing the entire situation. Meanwhile, Marshall is determined to have the best Christmas-light display ever in the tri-state area. He gets a taste of what fatherhood will be like when he gets help putting up the display from neighborhood teen Scott.

You stopped drinking?
