Storyline

Ted is going through his usual mourning process after his break-up with Robin. Barney encourages Ted to get out of mourning and become his "wing man" once again, but Ted isn't sure when he'll be ready to date. He decides the time has come when Robin, who went away to Argentina for her mourning phase, comes back to New York with a new boyfriend, an exotic Argentinean masseur named Gael. Ted wants to show Robin that she is not winning the break-up. So while going out with Barney to pick up women, Ted hooks up with Amy, a woman not generally Ted's type as she's a bit wild and lives on the edge. Meanwhile, Marshall and Lily have a double date with Robin and Gael, but Marshall and Lily, as Ted's best friends, vow it's only so they can learn to hate Gael, which ends up being a difficult thing for them to do. As Gael may become a permanent fixture in their lives, Ted comes to the realization that he needs to have some closure to his and Robin's break-up. Written by Huggo

Quotes

Barney Stinson: [First lines, continued from the end of last season] ... Dary ! Legendary ! Dude, I am so excited that you're single again. We're going to conquer New York City. I already have a girl from work lined up for you. Right boob bigger than the left boob, which some choose to look at as bra half empty. I choose to look at as bra half full.

User Reviews

 
One of two episodes I skip entirely.
3 August 2019 | by IcedvulcanhaloSee all my reviews

The only reason I skip this episode and the next episode is Enrique Iglesias. He is just annoying and boring and should never ever be allowed to act again.
