How I Met Your Mother - 10/22/07 - "H.I.M. Everyone Else"

http://alpha.cbs.com/primetime/how_i_met_your_mother/

When Ted's new girl becomes jealous because the story of how he and his pals met is better than the story of how she and Ted met, her ranking on Barney's "crazy scale" skyrockets. TV14-DL
I hope Barney goes into detail on his crazy scale.

I think in one of the promos they showed Barney was explaining his scale with a graphic.

Not a great episode but still funny. The crazy/hot graph was spot on.

I like how this show has multiple flashbacks and references to the same past event and theres rarely any plot holes.

Eh. Kinda disappointing. I liked the Mendoza Line reference though.

That's the Mendoza Diagonal.

Well, I think it is safe to say that the next twelve years will not be good to Marshmellow.

I personally quite enjoyed the episode. This season (all five episodes) has been fairly good, with the biggest slip-up, for me, being "We're Not From Here." And it sounds as though the season will continue to prove strong, based upon what little I've heard.

i was about to post the same thing. I thougth this episode was excellent and all the flashbacks / flash forwards without them messing up the timeline is impressive.

Flashback 1996 Lily looks like she could have been a little freaky with her gothy jet black hair

but Flashback 2001 Lily with her red hair is so hot!


Seeing 2007 Lily makes me mad at Alyson Hannigan for changing her hair color.

Yeah dude, this is the second time we've seen Marshall as an older guy looking like he's 70.

I think the new gf was a little over the top crazy, but still a funny episode. I loved Ted's look from college.

"Lily. C'mon."

BTW...blah blah is hot as hell. TV.com says her name is Ellen, maybe she'll be back being that he didnt remember her name in this episode...

"We get to meet Ellen, Ted's hot new girlfriend, right before she meets the gang. We also get to see how Ted met Marshall and how Marshall and Lily first met. Ted's girlfriend has a reaction to the meeting that gets her a high ranking on Barney's crazy scale."

I liked the whole bit of eating subs as the tv substitute for weed.

So, it's not legal yet in 2030?

Future Ted's teenage kids must be morons if they can't see through that.

Very funny episode and the payoff that they met in World of Warcraft and Ted plays a female character was even better!

Enjoyed the episode very much. Loved the graph, the "sandwich", flashbacks, and World of Warcraft with Ted as the female cahracter like CaptStormy mentioned.

With the Wilco reference last episode and an obscure Jayhawks song played in this one, my wife is convinced I'm somehow manipulating their music choices from afar.

Yeah, one of the best of the season.
HIMYM is the best comedy in network TV right now, I hope the ratings are good too.

1996 Lily looks oddly like Hank Moody's daughter on Californication.

Oh, and I don't remember anyone in 1996 using the phrase "tap that".
