Barney with high school girls? He'll need to rein it in a bit.

I think it goes without saying, but since no one probably knows what it is I'm referring to, I'll say it:

"Slut up!"

I'd have to say this was probably one of the worst episodes of this show. I'm a fan though, so they're allowed the occasional slip up.

... and the writers didn't let Barney anywhere close to the high school girls. The high school boys on the other hand get a good influence ...

Interesting twist with Lily having second thoughts about marriage. Usually it's the guy who gets cold feet.

"...and that's why you don't get your money's worth when you wear jeans to a strip club." WTF?

"Slut Up!" was the highlight of the episode, besides Robin

The suggestion from strippers for maximum enjoyment at a strip club is a combo of silk boxers and sweat pants. Jeans are too confining

I thought it was one of the best episodes yet. Sweet and funny with lots of laughs all around, not only Barney.

I wonder if the lesbian remark was an homage to Willow. When they went back to '96, I also thought with just a few veins on the face and she almost could have been dark Lily.

They gave us almost an entire show where Lily was pretty much Robin hot, so I'm happy.

I can't believe I'm 10 years older than Lily. Life sucks.
