This is 100% Barney’s episode. After Daddy Eriksen’s sudden heart attack everyone decides to get checked out. Barney’s appointment leads to a trip though his last 24 hours. It just so happens to include his second date with Nora. Barney shares in Nora’s white picket fence dreams. The gang thinks he’s lying, and threaten to tell Nora. He has the ultimate blackmail on everyone. Lily and the guinea pig, Marshall and the calzone, Robin and the Mr. T dream, and Ted and the thermos. They lie about Barney’s level of nice guy-ness. When Nora finally invites Barney upstairs he tells her he was lying. Lily knows that the real lie was at that moment. We all know that the Barney of old would have tapped that ass then told her he was lying. He obviously really likes her. Barney goes to meet Nora and her parents. We get a fake out of Barney being honest and sappy. In reality he leaves without going into the restaurant. Oh, the rest of the gang is having fun with Scooby, Robin’s new human/dog boyfriend. It led to few good lines, but was secondary to Barney’s story.
“We’re all adults, I’ll just say it, behind Nora.”
“Yeah, penis feelings.”
Loved all of “I only have one rule” rules.
“Legend-wait for it-kachoo!”
“Robin, if you weren’t so much stronger than me, I’d slap you.”
My favorite of the dog puns: “You should be properly vet-ted.”
“We’re in our 30′s, we don’t smoke sandwiches anymore.”
“Sandwiches make me hungry.”
“Those twins won’t even be born for another … 32 years.”
What was your favorite dog pun? Barney’s sick sounds were great and totally real. Were you as skeeved out as I was that he wasn’t covering her mouth/nose? ICK!! Talk back in the comments!
