Contents 1 Plot 2 Cultural references 3 Continuity 4 Critical response 5 References 6 External links Plot As seen in "Definitions", Lily and Marshall are very excited to have another couple to hang out with. Future Ted explains that they had fared poorly with previous couples, coming across as clingy and desperate. With Barney and Robin now a couple, they hope to turn their luck around. After an evening together, Lily and Marshall are under the impression that it was "the best night ever", despite Robin and Barney being obviously bored and uncomfortable throughout. Robin and Barney ignore their messages and avoid Lily and Marshall, but they eventually admit that they don't want to be "couple friends". Devastated, Lily and Marshall blame each other for the failure, citing Marshall's bizarre photo montages of trivial events and Lily's tendency to plan big outings much too quickly. After a week apart from Lily and Marshall, Robin and Barney realize they miss their friends, and head over to their condo, only to find them enjoying the company of another couple. Barney and Robin are crushed by the rejection, and sing a rendition of "All by Myself" as a duet. They interrupt another couple's night at Lily and Marshall's apartment, leading them outside with a trail of egg timers for Charades. In the rain, Barney and Robin ask for one more chance, which Marshall and Lily grant them, attracted by their "bad boy... and girl" mystique. ("I think we can change them," says Marshall.) They promise to never fight again, and share a hug. Meanwhile, Ted has settled into the persona of a professor, often wearing a tweed jacket, even at MacLaren's. He claims it attracts the ladies, but after a woman leaves his apartment in the morning without having sex, Barney calls him the "Sexless Innkeeper." He elaborates with a poem set in a Dickensian version of Queens, where he was caught in a blizzard, walked a few blocks to an ugly woman's apartment, and feigned sleep to avoid sex. Ted is annoyed at the new nickname, which of course spurs Barney on. Later, as Barney and Robin leave for brunch with Lily and Marshall, Ted recites a poem of his own for Barney, telling the tale of a busty young blonde woman who was turned on by his professor persona. Barney's is skeptical, but is left speechless when the young woman appears at Ted's bedroom door, inviting Ted back to bed, thus ending the reign of the Sexless Innkeeper. After Robin reminds Barney of their planned brunch with Marshall and Lily, he screams, "What have I done?" Cultural references Marshall has a story about seeing Sammy Hagar eating a Belgian waffle in Cabo San Lucas, where Hagar has a nightclub called Cabo Wabo Cantina. Ted asks Barney: "Wait, If this was last year (2008), why are you acting like it was Oliver Twist?", referring to the title of Charles Dickens' second novel. Ranjit says to Marshall and Lily "Phalguni and I are just not that into you" mirroring the name of the 2009 film He's Just Not That into You. Continuity Robin and Barney's being questioned by the maître d’ for having dinner for two is a reference to the episode "World's Greatest Couple", where Marshall is questioned for having brunch by himself. Lily and Marshall's issues regarding other couples had already been introduced in "The Platinum Rule", when we learn about their "relationship" with the next-door couple. That same episode also shows Marshall and Lilly's love of playing charades. On one of the failed couples nights, as the other couple gets up to leave, Marshall says "If you leave now Colonel Mustard just gets away with it" showing that Marshall already knows who was guilty before the end of the "CLUE" game. Marshall is great at games as introduced in "Game Night". This is the second time the gang references Oliver Twist, the first time being in 'Sorry Bro' when Barney mocks Marshall's cut off pants by saying "Please sir, may I have some more?" Critical response Donna Bowman of The A.V. Club rated the episode with a grade B.[1] Brian Zoromski of IGN gave the episode 6.8 out of 10. The review described the episode as "disappointing and mostly unfunny"; he went on to say that he liked the premise of Marshall writing sentimental songs for mundane occasions, but that it was not part of a believable story.[2] References ^ Donna Bowman (2009-10-05).
