Meh, didn't care for this one, except for the part with all the different "guys" in the office. Sadly, we used to have 'backrub guy' at my office for a while.
I was wondering how they'd get rid of Lily for a while when Alyson Hannigan had her baby, and Cobie Smulders is really starting to show now.

Yep, Cobie is REALLY showing. They should have tried better to hide it, some of the shots last night didn't put in enough effort, and just made her look fat/frumpy instead...

Decent episode, but really felt a bit like filler...

Well, you can easily see that she's put on a lot of weight just by looking at her face, so I don't think there's much more the producers can do to hide it. Still looking great though.

I haven't seen the ep yet, but Backrub Guy sounds like Jimmy the Overly-touchy Orderly from Scrubs.

I hate when they make Ted just plain stupid. While his motive was understandable, the way they wrote it was pretty embarrassing -- and inconsistent.

While not perfect by any means, Ted is usually the more level-headed of the group (which, of course, is a relative term here).

--Ted (the name's just a coincidence )

I thin I found the joke from googling...

Q: What's the difference between jam and peanut butter?

A: I can't peanutbutter my cock up your ass.
Jimmy is Backrub guy.

Lilly may be offended, but Alyson made a career from claiming to have stuck a flute up her pussy that time at bandcamp.

"sigh"

I loved the episode. Don't know why all the hate. I have a backrub guy at work too. It was bang on for all the crazy stuff that happens at work.

Love the lead up with Barney

I agree, there hasn't been much to like about Ted recently.

But that's douchy ted. I think it fits nicely with his college character.

This was a mediocre episode. There are rarely mediocre episodes in HIMYM, so when they occur, I can’t help but go, “Dang. What happened?”

I think its because the writers are working with half their tools at this point. Both female leads are pregnant and I think that atleast 40% of what makes Marshall in this show is his relationship with Lilly.
