  • Ted gets drunk.

    Those are the three words that best describes this episode. In an episode that is similar the movie "The Hangover"; except made prior to the film, Ted asks for help trying to figure out what happened last night. This is after he wakes up with a sprained ankle, a burned jacket, a girl in his bed, and a random pineapple on his nightstand. The sprained ankle comes from him falling off a table at the bar. Barney deliberately burns his jacket. The girl in his bed, the gang suspects at first, is Robin, but they later figure out it's just a random girl from the bar named Trudy. And the pineapple, well... they never figure out where that came from, but apparently it was delicious. Plenty of other things happen like Ted calling Robin multiple times, who went out on a date that night. He also is disappointed to hear he puked, which ends his "vomit-free since '93" streak, until Trudy reassures him that he in fact did not throw up. He's pleased with that at least. In the end, he wants to make Robin jealous by showing Tracy but she escapes out the fire exit. Robin thinks Ted's just hallucinating but in the end it comes out to be one of my favorite episodes of Season 1. I'm sure many others share the same opinion as well.
