What about the Goat on his birthday.

Have we got to the Goat?
We got teased with the goat a few times, then we actually got the goat story, and then they've "flash-backed" to the goat a few times since.

I actually like that this show throws in the references to people who are paying attention. Like how every time they eat a sandwich, they're really smoking pot. Or this episode's reference with the bouncer punching Barney, they don't even bother explaining why he punched Barney. It rewards fans who have been with the show without boring them to death by re-explaining things.
