I rigged this alarm to go off every three hours. I'm training myself for the sporadic sleep patterns of early parenthood. Now, if you'll excuse me, I have a practice-baby to soothe. You got to talk to him. Yeah, I'll talk to him tonight. It's just so cozy. It's like sleeping in a warm burrito. Meanwhile, Barney was about to have a stripper's boyfriend's worst nightmare. Oh, my gosh, I didn't recognize you without your legs behind your head.
Darryl, I didn't recognize you without your creepy trench coat. Great, you working tomorrow?
I'll be there with bells on. And by bells, I mean super thin sweatpants. He's actually a nice guy. She's so busy as deputy mayor, but I always get a card on my birthday. Quinn, I love the fact that you're a stripper, but I hate the fact that you're a stripper. Barney, I like my job.
And I do not need to be rescued. So, don't be that guy. You're right, you're right. Forget I said anything.

I'll see you tonight, Karma. You got it, Dirty Larry. You have to quit your job! That night, I went out with the first girl Barney picked for me. There was just one problem. Your name is Robin? Yeah, with a Y. I go by ScotchAndGunLover in my online profile, 'cause those are my two favorite things. Well, next to Canada, my home and native land. And just like that, Robyn became Robin. How's it going, Ted? Hey, look, mommy's back from the bar! Now I can finally take a shower. I don't want to know.
Okay, Marshall, sit down; we need to talk. Look, I know you mean well, but we have five weeks till the due date. Can't we use this time to just relax? We'll figure out how all this stuff works after the baby comes. After the baby comes?
Yeah, we'll learn on the job. Learn on the j Huh. Wow, you know, Lily, maybe the crisis here isn't that I'm not ready to be a dad; maybe it's that you're not ready to be a mom! With that, an argument began, the details of which are still hotly debated to this day. For instance, Uncle Marshall swears he never said: I'm the only one making sacrifices for this baby! And he claims he never actually uttered the words: It's like you don't even know that you're pregnant! While Lily insists this part was exaggerated: Baby's are easy; you just watch them be cute and feed them spaghetti!
But everyone agrees this is how the argument ended: Marshall, what I need now is some peace, some quiet, and now that it's out there, some spaghetti. Now, please help me off the couch so I can storm out. The next day, I filled Barney in on my date. And for the rest of the night, every time I looked at her, I just saw Robin's face. Well, I should hope so. Robin with an I. Uh, our Robin has two eyes, my friend.
You're forgetting what she looks like. I'm sorry, that must have been tough. If anyone knows what that feels like, it's me. I gaze out into the world and all I see is an icy place where dreams die. Remember, I made lasagna that one time.
That's all it takes? It wasn't even lasagna; you took your botched kugle and poured tomato sauce on it. I didn't say it was good lasagna. By the way, what are you doing with this girl? With tattoos all up and down her arms and everywhere else. Does that dragons tail go all the way down to her Ohh, yes, it does. Well, what do you want me to do, Robin? I have to get over you somehow, and if this is what it takes Are you okay? You kind of spaced out there. Please enjoy these chocolates, may contain peanuts. Have sex up against the window and make up?
Well, funny you should mention that. Come again for Big Fudge? You are Goliath National Bank's newest executive strategy coordinator. What is an executive strategy coordinator? It's three corporate-sounding words which, when added together, equal a fake job for which you get a real paycheck in the amount of exactly what you'd make stripping. Now, about that up-against-the-window sex Dude, I don't want to work for a bank.
Because I have standards. You people are whores. The things you're willing to do just for some money, it's shameful. You work in a strip club.
How I Met Everyone Else
Yeah, and I like it. And I'm good at it. Barney, if I took this job, you would own me. I would be willingly stepping into a cage, which is something I don't do. Except on Thursdays, when it's cage night at the Lusty Leopard, but that's a cardboard cage, and I can get out of it any time I want. Wow, thanks for ruining cage night. I think I have some thinking to do.
Does this mean I get to keep my job? Yeah, Herm, you can stay. I'm-I'm sorry I flipped out.
To be fair, maybe I'm at fault for loving our child too much, although that is the definition of parenting, so All right, good make up. Hey, listen, I went online, and I found this Baby Boot Camp thing that they're doing at a hotel in Paramus this weekend. Yeah, it's a two-day event We're going. You've already made the sale. Anyway, I signed us up. Not even listening anymore; mentally packing. I'm trying to figure out the best way to get to Paramus without hitting any tolls. This is gonna be great. And that was the last time I'll ever go out with a guy with a mustache.
This is nice, not thinking about you-know-who. Just having a good time and thanking God I didn't grow that mustache. And you, you're so polite. Wayne had no manners. Wayne manners Wayne Manor, home of Bruce Wayne, better known as Batman, mentor to Dick Grayson, his orphan ward who at night would don the colorful vestments of the Boy Wonder, aka Robin.
Holy long walk for a short drink of water, Ted. I need you out of my life for real. Look how much is changing right now. Marshall and Lily are having a baby. Barney's shacking up with a girl. With your whole world turning upside down, isn't a friendship like this one something you want to hold on to as tightly as possible?
And every time I look at you, it hurts. I'm sorry for going into so much detail. I'll never tell that story again. Anyway, how's your meal? Holly, listen, I should probably tell you, um, I'm kind of getting over someone right now. I am so glad you said that. I guess I'm still getting over Wayne. It's been really hard.

Can I interest you in some sorbet? You two look like you could both use a palate cleanser. How's your palate, Ted? You know, at this seminar, there's gonna be the one guy who's, like, Mr. Parenting Expert, keeps interrupting the speakers with his own "important facts. Baby, you've been a little sleep deprived lately. Why don't you let me drive? You know what, that's not such a bad idea. I mean, the last thing we want is for me to get behind the wheel and just Oh, baby, you smell good. When we get to that hotel, I'm gonna wear your pregnant belly like a hat.
