The dream sequence at the beginning was pretty good, and he really did look like Bernie, but that was the best part of the episode until the end when the red boots were burned to a crisp. It felt like they wrote this episode just in case they got another season, then when they did get one more, they filmed this. And dropping Skittles at an inapropriate time would cause Marshall to never buy them again?!? He's held a meeting in cut-off suit pants, left the house in his boxers, has performed basd stand up comedy on multiple occasions and use to have a funk band comprised of lawyers, but Skittles hitting the floor was so embarrassing to Lily that he never buys them again?!? lame.

Wow. they totally cheapened their best proposal yet with Barney having a playbook still and his whole speech about lying.I was seriously expecting that to break them up (considering the last "page" she found was "The Robin" and it turned out to be a total lie) for season 9 to be about Barney trying to repair the damage. glad they didn't go that route as it's been 8 years, let's meet the Mom already.. but still, a bad episode Barney's supposed growth.

Also, I was wanting to see more of Weekend at Barney's. he looked JUST like Bernie and a spoof would have been hilarious.

Loved the episode! It's nice that Ted's Red Boots are finally gone. It is a mark for great things to come.

Another horrible episode. What a big surprise that Marshall made a fool of himself at the gallery and who could have guessed it would involve the candy, and that it would happen during the minute of silence? Sigh...

They better have a solid explanation for Barney have the Playbook... like he's going by Memory or a rough draft from his first days in a suit (after his hippie days). Because frankly, his burning of the book as an act of devotion to Robin was one of the biggest character-growths he's undergone since the beginning of the series.
