^ I just found out that she's Chris Elliott's daughter. I can see the resemblance.

I bumped into allegations of nepotism which is just silly.

What's wrong with dad getting you a job?

Really surprised they didn't try to get one of the Olsen twins (or even Candance or Jodie) to be one of Ted's girlfriends at some point during this series. Weird that Dave Coulier was the first cameo they could wrangle up.

I enjoyed this episode, and the reveal that the "kindly black woman" was in fact Mike Tyson had me in stitches.

I also like that Abbey Elliot will be around for a while. Even though she's not the Mother, I like her character. I hope she gets a few scenes with her father.
With all the hype around Mike Tyson appearing on L&O:SVU, the protesting and questioning whether he should appear. It was surprising that Mike Tyson was on HIMYM with little or no fanfare. It was a little bit of fun, made me smile.

I liked that, actually. Was more of a surprise when he did show up.

I was surprised he showed up as well, and I liked that we did not know.

Loved Lily's reaction too. I think the whole thing worked well.

I'm glad Barney's past issues aren't just swept under the rug. He's having trouble getting used to his new self, but his love for Robin will win out over his old habits.

All his issues are from not knowing his father.

Everything tracks back to that.

His father needs to return for several more episodes before the wedding. Or at least before the series finale.

Oh yeah! I'm shocked they haven't brought Lithgow back! He was only in two episodes!

Nice to see an episode with a new personal development/growth for Lily. We don't get too many of those since she got married.

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

As someone who's going to school to become a teacher, it did kind of bug me that Lily was upset she was "only" a Kindergarten teacher. As if only being a teacher is somehow a horrible thing.

Aside from that I loved seeing The Captain again, and seeing the story get retold as we find out both Ted and Robin were inebriated was hilarious.

That got my attention as well. It sort of stuck me as a "Manhattan elitist" kind of thing and seemed somewhat unnecessary.

It's one thing to peruse something you love, but to treat the most noble of professions with contempt is a bit silly.

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

It wasn't what she wanted to do with her life. It was her 'safety' career that she got into out of necessity while Marshal was finishing law school. It wasn't commentary on the profession, it was commentary on Lily's character.
