Yes, I loved that too. There were so many good one liners in this one.

That's the rumor. Coulier and Morrissette had a thing shortly before she hit it big with that album, but neither has ever confirmed that the song is definitively about him.

Coulier is just riffing on the rumor in the episode. "Why does everyone always assume its about me?"

I thought it was the best episode in a long time.

I was laughing the entire way through the whole Under the Tunes bit.

I enjoyed the episode as well, but I have to wonder, if Robin Sparkles was such a big deal in Canada, why isn't she a fucking millionaire at least?

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

Exchange rate?

Although, look at her dad, he's obviously nearly a billionaire so it's not like she has a hundred grand in student loans above her head like every one else... How did Barney go from white trash to Business school graduate... His brother turned out well too? Are Barney and James super geniuses applying to all the right schollarships?

I can't think of a time where Robin has ever been short of cash, even if she doesn't still have her Robin Sparkles money, she's still got her daddy/family money, but she could be a multimultimulti millionaire and just never mentioned it.

Do you think of Paul Shaffer as a multi millionaire?

How much royalties do you think Jesus Jones still gets?

Isn't Dave Coulier old enough to be Alanis' father???????

Sorry I'm still in shock on this one

She was underaged when they dated, which is why it was a secret.

Jagged Little Pill came out in 1995, when she was 21. Coulier is 15 years older than her, but such a May-December isn't unheard of.

It was a pretty decent episode. Like others, I do think the show is starting to wear out it's welcome. But if they do get to the mother this season and have next season be about Ted getting to know (and eventually marrying) the mother, then I'll forgive it.
I'd love to see a How I Met Your Father, with her telling the story to the kids. And Barney is a regular, because he banged all her friends and collegues.
I think this idea already came up and i really like it.. it would be one of the more original way to spin off a show. It all depends on the writing and casting of course but early Mother was a blast when the writers had fun ideas and the cast didn't autocruise through their acting like they do now.

However one thing that i especially noticed in this episode is how old Neal Patrick Harris looks.. i mean the guy is pushing 40 but he somehow looks spent. He'd definitely look out of place in this spin off which would feature a cast of mostly mid 20s people.

Damn.. 1995.. has it been that long?

Spin-off wouldn't work so well, considering one of the main themes of this show is that Ted is telling a story of his youth in the year 2030, but that his story is contemporary with us, the viewer. A spin-off wouldn't be able to use that same theme, and instead would have to go "The Wonder Years" route.

I think Jason Segel has aged most notably of all cast members, just saw an episode from the first season a few weeks ago and thought, whoa, dude was young... once.

Yes, neither he nor Alyson Hannigan can play their college days flashback roles very convincingly at all anymore. They should really stop trying.

Agreed. Especially Hannigan since there's so much "tape" her when she was college aged.

I just chalk up those differences to Ted's unreliable narration.
