SO...
Spoiler:
That makes me think that Barney did NOT have sex with Robin last week, and is asking for Ted's permission to go ahead.

I missed the first 10 minutes, but caught the last 20, it seemed a little slow but built up pretty nicely to

Who was the limo driver? Was that the same one from New Year's Eve?

It was Ranje, he has been a cameo character in the show. He was in the pilot, and the new years eve episode from season one. Then showed up during Marshall and Lily's wedding.

Ranjit was also the cab driver when Ted took Stella on their 15 minute date.

Every one of the Bro Codes that they mentioned were absolutely true.

Fantastic episode. There were a couple of LOL lines. I laughed at Marshall asking Barney whether or not Robin knew that he had sex with her.

I actually believed that Ted was going to be cool with it after the speech in the Limo.

I was thinking that, too- at first. What gave it away for me was when Barney was so adament to Marshall about being Ted's BEST friend. When they feel the need to remind the audience of something like that,it usually means the writers are gonna make it an issue. Oh, and also I remembered how freaked out Ross was when Rachel started seeing Joey.

I got a probably unintentional laugh out of Lily asking Robin what Barney was like in the sack. the most recent issue of the 'Buffy' comic book series has Willow asking Satsu what Buffy is like in the sack, and there was some online debate about whether someone would really ask that about one of their friends. Either it's an amusing coincidence, or someone was making a point. (the HIMYM writers ARE all 'Buffy' fans, right?)

My wife and I are both huge Whedon fans and caught this as well.

Loved the episode overall. Great Barney lines. If they ever get rid of Barney this show is doomed. The other characters are good, but Barney is.....wait for it......AWESOME.....

Yeah, me too. Although I was getting ready to dump all over the show if that's the way things worked out. There's just no way in hell someone would be ok with that in real life. I had an experience where a friend of mine had sex with another friend's brother's ex (to emphasize: not my other friend's ex, his brother's ex!) and even that created all sorts of havoc. Truth be told, I had her lined up first (we were all on vacation and she was especially horny for some reason) but passed because of this past relationship; e.g. the Bro Code.

When I think of what Stephen Colbert has accomplished in the realm of wrist awareness, I can't help but consider what Barney could do, if only he put his mind to it, to place the public spotlight on crotch awareness.

And what a better world it would be should be do so.

Liked that they brought back the "30th birthday goat" thing mentioned way back in the first season, only to throw a swerve at the end and reveal a little something about what happens a year later at the same time. Does that mean that all the goat scenes were misremembered too, or is there another goat?

Thought it was a little hypocritical of Ted to forgive Robin so easily and not Barney, but I guess that's part of the "bro code."
