He goes to a strip club, gets wasted, and ends up going with one of the dancers, who happens to be a single mother.
The morning after, as Ted prepares for a walk of shame, he walks out to find he woman's two kids on the couch. They awkwardly ask how this random stranger in their house knows their mom.
Ted, being his socially awkward self, tells these two random children his entire life story, leading up to HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER.

Yeah, but all those "... and then you would have never been born." lines wouldn't make much sense.

That would be an awsome twist.

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

Thought I'd resurrect this thread just to say that this show is quickly going down hill. Last night's episode was horrible. I have no idea what the hell Marshall was doing, or why. And Victoria's demand on Ted was lifted right out of Friends, and it was a bad plot point even back then. Robin's boyfriend trying to come up with catch phrases was just stupid, and his Emeril reference was outdated five years ago.
The part with Barney and the dog was pretty good, but that's it.
I'm only watching this show out of habit now. They started running out of steam a couple of years ago and it's really showing this season.
Introduce the mother and get this thing over with. Please!

^Agreed.

I wonder why they even had Ted and Victoria get back together, it was over so quickly there was hardly any point to it.

Just one of the most recent examples of cash cow milking

Mother was awesome in the first few seasons but they missed the point to introduce the mother thinking apparently the show would tank.

I guess, if it is the final season (couldn't be bothered to research that), the show finale will have Barney and Robin's wedding, Ted meeting the Mother and then fade to black.. and many people shrugging shoulders, saying "Meh.." and continuing their lives (but still posting about how Meh they are about the show on various boards.. like me )

They can do a spin off with the mother.

How I Met Your Father

And Barney appears in it regularly banging the friends of the mother.

Ratings. Victoria is the most popular secondary character ever on the show. This is now the THIRD time they've brought her back (well, really second if you count the end of last season and the beginning of this season as a continuous guest appearance).

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

Hm really? Didn't realise that. I liked the first time they started getting together and the whole going to Germany thing. I thought she was on the same level as Sarah Chalke and Jennifer Morrisson's characters.

Well this week's episode was better than most this season. Glad they got rid of Nick.

Which is a crime against nature since the actress couldn't act her way out of a paper bag and can't stop glancing awkwardly at the camera to save her life.

Really, of the potential mothers to date, Sarah Chalke's character was the only who didn't grate.

Personally, If we consider actresses who appeared more than once as "potential mothers", then I'd prefer that Ted end up with either Rachel Bilson or Danica McKellar.

I love Barney's new coat. Makes him look like Dick Tracy.



Also, we're getting two episodes tonight, and a 9th season is still a possibility.
