Re: How I Met Your Mother: Barney and... (Spoilers ahead...)

Exactly. That was a huge part of the "mythology" of the show. This weeks episode and the previous two parter where some of the best ones in quite some time. The show is still must see.

Yeah. Even I admit got some genuine laughs out of it. I mean, how can someone not find Ray Wise asking "Can I haz cheeseburger?" hysterical?

They make jokes about that a lot, as in him implying that it's a very "long" story, etc. But in-universe, I think it's meant to be him sitting down with his kids one evening and telling them this story about how he met their mother.

Each little story much take just a few moments to tell, but we are seeing it in real life detail.

Perhaps they should have hired John Moschitta to play old Ted.

There's a lot of euphemisms, too. For example, anytime someone smokes weed, it's called "eating a sandwich". Complete with actual sandwich.

I love their visual metaphors for naughty activity, that's one of the truly unique things about this show. They just invented a new one in the last episode, what was it again...? Oh yeah, confetti for baby shit!

I loved the bit when that porn video that Ted had just magically flew through the air and put itself in the VCR as Ted watched on helplessly.

I read we get one more installment of Robin Sparkles this season.

I love Robin Sparkles! There's so many great recurring gags on this show. It's been a long time they did that, isn't it?

And there's still one slap left for Marshall to deal out to Barney (my favorite running gag ). Slap Bet is my favorite episode because it introduces the Slaps and Robin Sparkles.

A good moment to use the last Slap would be to down Barney when he ínevitably tries to escape from his own wedding.

But if he's trying to get past Marshall, that would be a purposeful and functional slap and not a slap bet slap, which means Barney can slap back.

The slaps are unconditional if i recall correctly.. Marshall can deal them out anytime for whatever reason and even if he just felt like it.

So the last one might even do some good

Every slap is conditional, that's why there's a smoking hot slapbet commissioner.
