The picture montages were pretty funny.

I laughed every single time they showed Barney's pictures.

And the Laura Prepon stuff was fantastic. She's by far my favorite "ex" on the show.

OMG, the Barney photo thing was priceless. The "My Name is Marshall" bit was not.

This is how you do a filler episode.

It really didn't have anything to do with the main plotline of the series, but it was hilarious, had plenty of callbacks to previous episodes and even had a strong emotional foundation.

Mine is cutthroat bitch. I wish she could get a gig on a show where she wasn't just doing very little or guest starring.

Every episode of this show is basically the same. I like the characters enough to keep watching, though.

I just think they could do so much more with the show and they don't.

Lily is pretty much an annoying bitch.

So I'm assuming that Ted is still single at Lily's party next year?

as soon as Ted got there with random chick of the week I was hoping they'd call him on his douchbaggery
college Ted really does look like a douche too

The answer for that is to not invite Ted, since all he offers is being constantly annoying.

Any clue what the French rap song playing on the scene on the plane was?

Agreed.

I have a friend like that, who's a serial dater and goes a through a girlfriend about every three weeks, and he'll drag that chick everywhere he goes, and when we're out with him, we just sort of have to act like we're going to be seeing her again.

It's really annoying when you're in an small gathering between people who have known each other a long time. It'll be like me, my girlfriend (almost ten years), our friend Dave and his wife Amanda, Rob and his wife, and then Sam and the girl who found on Facebook a week ago.

I cracked up when they were going through the pictures and Marshall had his eyes closed in all of them, but I think that the joke would have been better if it was left in the background and not acknowledged in the show. They basically did the same thing with Barney in reverse, so they had already used basically the same premise anyway.

Actually, as I mentioned above, it would have been better if it hadn't already been a running gag on My Name is Earl for the last 4 years.

And as mentioned by Michael Corvin before that's from My Name is Earl (Earl closes his eyes in all the pictures).

I lost it every time Robin tried to get Barney to take a bad picture and it turned out perfect. That was by and far one of the funniest things the show has ever done. I just wish they hadn't ruined it at the end by having him sneeze in the picture.

So maybe she should bring it up before the party?

I agree on both counts. Her catching him in the sneeze at the end weakened the bit.
