Yeah, I thought for sure that they were setting that up. I guess not though...
Put me down as another person who was thinking that was where they were going with the story.

Still, it wasn't a horrible episode, and I enjoyed seeing "The Karate Kid" again

Looks like they found a way to keep Ranjit on the show.

$50 doesn't seem like enough money for the lip service Linus is delivering.

Methinks he just wants an excuse to follow around the most beautiful woman in the room?

I loved the last episode and I'm looking forward to the next one! So far, this season is not disappointing me in any way.

Re: How I Met Your Mother: The Final Season

Since it's very early in the season ican still wait for the official meetup between Ted and the Mother and it seems the writers have very different plans as evidenced by the opportunity in this episode.

Remember way back in season one when Ted met the first gf of the show at the wedding and how they instantly were attracted to each other because they were both a little "out there" by normal standards?

It was cute as hell and it was only one episode but it worked because both seemed compatible so i have little doubt that they will have a hard time getting to like each other and i'm looking forward to it (and i really hope it won't be the 200th episode near the end of the show for it to happen).

They already wasted that magical attraction thing with Victoria. That's the way he should have gotten to know and love the mother.


What I really like now about the show is that there is actually a point to it. Ted started the whole story with how he met Robin, because without Robin and all those escapades that always led him bouncing back to Robin, he would have never met the mother.

I thought it was $100? Either way, that's probably just gratuity, I bet she's still paying for the drinks.

That was my understanding as well. $100.00 for unlimited liquor, where do I sign up.

Re: How I Met Your Mother: The Final Season

The wedding (Barney & Robin... Or is it he Bride's father who is supposed to pay for everything? Everyone is loaded (Especially Lily) so they're all going to be fighting to see who gets to pay for this shindig.) is paying for the drinks. I'm assuming it's an unlimited package, rather than itemizing for 200 guests, or a package for 200 guests.

But yes in review, that is definitely a Ben Franklin she passed over to Linus. Sorry.

I know this is just a TV show, but that doesn't seem feasible in real life. They did not rent out the entire hotel, just a block of rooms for the guests. Otherwise, there would not be guests in the hotel bar that are unknown to Robin and Lily. Without wristbands or some other means of identifying those who are entitled to unlimited beverages, the bar staff wouldn't be able to differentiate the regular customers from the wedding attendees.

Every "open bar" I've ever been to either had closed doors to guests only, or wristbands of some sort that you could flash to the bartender to not have to pay for your drink.

^Sometimes, the parents invite guests that both the groom and bride don't know. Also, there are the dates or companions of guests, who often would not know Robin and especially Lily

otherwise, spot on
