Storyline

After his encounter with Quinn, Barney becomes infatuated with her. When he finds out that she works as a stripper in his favorite strip club, that infatuation doesn't stop. As he tries to persuade her to go out with him, Quinn has her own agenda. Meanwhile, as Robin has moved out of Ted's apartment after Marshall told her that staying would only hurt Ted in the long run, Ted tries to move on by figuring out something useful to do with Robin's old bedroom. Robin, not knowing where to go, is temporarily staying with Marshall and Lily in their Long Island house. Robin's stay may be longer than she first anticipated if only because Marshall and Lily, who have settled into suburban bliss, won't let her leave. As Robin tries to maneuver her way out of their house and back into the city, she learns why Marshall and Lily are so desperate for her to stay. Ted may provide the solution for Marshall and Lily's problem and well as his own. Written by Huggo

Much Improved Episode
11 February 2015 | by slightlymad22See all my reviews

After a couple of the less than stellar episodes, how does "How I Met Your Mother" get back on track?? Give the brilliant Neil Patrick Harris the main storyline and a lot more screen time of course!!

Plot In A Paragraph: After his brief dalliance with Quinn, Barney becomes smitten with her. When he finds out that she works as a stripper in his favorite strip club, that doesn't stop him, in fact he wants her more. So he tries to persuade her to go on a date with him, Quinn may have her own agenda though. Meanwhile, as Robin has moved out of Ted's, he tries to move on by figuring out something useful to do with Robin's old bedroom. Elsewhere Robin is staying with Marshall and Lily in their Long Island house. Robin's stay may be longer than she first anticipated if only because Marshall and Lily, who have settled into suburban bliss, won't let her leave.

Neil Patrick Harris is always brilliant as Barney, and in Quinn, he seems he has more than met his match. The Lily, Marshall and Robin storyline was a lot of fun based on the movie "Misery". However Ted moping over Robin brought the quality of the episode down.
