    I am confused... how is there one slap left?

    "thats 2" ( probably the best in the series) after the one man play

    slapsgiving, slapsgiving II ( respectively) is slaps three and four.

    slap 5ive is 'worst episode ever..' so how could there be one left ?

    of course, slap one is first-and the after the play sets the counter to two....

    Please clarify.

    There have been seven slaps so far... they are in the episodes

    -Slap Bet,



    -Slapsgiving 2: Revenge of the Slap,

    -Disaster Averted,

    -Disaster Averted,

    -Slapsgiving 3: Slappointment in Slapmarra,

    Its Because of The ducky tie, Barney ends up having to wear a blue tie with yellow ducks on it for a whole year as a result of losing a bet with Marshall and Lily.

    By the time of Disaster Averted, Marshall had used 4 slaps and Barney had grown tired of wearing the ducky tie and Lily and Marshall agree that he can take it off but Marshall must gain an extra 3 slaps.

    Getting those extra 3 slaps reset the total to only one slap used. Marshall then used 2 slaps in Disaster Averted, bringing his total up to 3. In Slapsgiving 3, he used another slap, bringing his total back to four.
