Adding Morena Baccarin to the hottie mix that is this show can only lead to good things.

the brian thing was funny, only because I used to wirk with a guy who's actual name was Brian but he went by Scott

Swarley was hilarious, especially some of the variations they used, reminded me of this guy in highschool that we called swagmala

Swarlos.

I did like the Whedon Castfest going on tonight (Willow, Andrew, Inara).

So crazy can work for a girl as well.

Great episode. Swarley, crazy eyes, and jerk nails were great. Loved the Cheers homage at the end, right down to the fonts for the credits.

I used to go out with a girl that had the crazy eyes. True story.

It's amazing how a silly name that means nothing somehow sticks to a person.

I loved how the crazy story the coffee chick was telling ended up being true because of Lily.

Great episode

The Swarley story was great, I wonder if they'll keep it going for a couple of episode.

The crazy girl story was well done too.

Good to see Morena again, but I think she needs to gain back a little weight. Doesn't look nearly as good as in Firefly.

Damn I was hoping Morena would atleast make it a couple of episodes as Marshalls lady. Still like others have said it was nice to see her again. Still as hot as ever.

Oh and that was their best ending yet! SWARLEY!

The last scene alone was worth me not getting my work done for half an hour. I was honestly hoping that Lily and Marshall would spend a few more episodes separate.

HIMYM is going to become an honorary Mutant Enemy show.

In under two seasons we have seen Willow, Wesley, Fred, Inara, and Andrew.

I didn't even recognize her. Swarlos had to be my favorite variation.

I liked Swarls Barkley - "But that's a good one Ted, remember that."

I know they are going to eventually screw it up, but I'm really enjoying Ted and Robin being a nice normal couple. They are good together.

I spent the whole first part of the episode going "Is that Inara?" She looked WAY too young and I agree, far too skinny. It was nice to see the mini-Whedon reunion though.

Hilarious episode throughout.

I love that the major networks let you watch episodes online if you miss them the night they aired.

Agreed. AKA - together they are mostly SECONDARDY CHARACTERS. I like Robin stories, but Ted as a central, single character in a primary storyline runs the risk of:

or or

Ted is just annoying when he's single.

Good episode. The end hand me just rolling! The font was just gravy!

Try going through all you Jr High and High school years being called "beaker", i felt barney's pain. Though i guess you get use to it after the 6th or 7th year.
Good episode, made me kinda happy, had to look and make sure np one heard me clapping at the end.

That's who she is! I knew I had seen her before but I just couldn't place her.

Did they use "Swarles in Charge" at all throughout the episode?

Wow. I'm shocked at the love this episode got. I never say this about shows I watch religiously, but I thought this episode was terrible. The whole "Swarley" thing was just way too stupid for me. It didn't make ANY sense. Especially the way it was brought up. Didn't the coffee shop call out the name on the cup when it was done? Wouldn't they have all noticed it then? Sorry, the whole thing was just stupid.

I could go on, but it's not needed. Just wanted to voice a different opinion here.
