    Barney saved this episode by corrupting nursery rhymes.

    Beyond that, this episode didn't have much going for it. It felt like a lot of the scenes were incomplete, cut off before they reached their natural conclusion, or forced into that conclusion without the necessary development to reach it. It was such an easy jump for Lily and Marshall to go from 'we're in the right' to 'wait, maybe they're right.' It was way too fast, but I suppose that's how we all imagine ourselves to be - wrong but able to quickly realize and fix it.

    C'mon, HIMYM, lets get to the mother. Hopefully Ted's paying for the wedding he didn't have with Victoria will be the bit that pushes him over the edge to leave her again.
