Marshall's at his apartment desk working when Lily comes over and starts rubbing him again. Then she starts unbuttoning her shirt. He tells her he has to do this presentation, and will work on it until tomorrow afternoon, then he'll do her. She says it's a deal, but then holds his hand to her boob until he has to scold "Lily!" to get it back.
Barney finds Robin alone at MacLaren's and calls her a "lying little minx." He just happened to be at Café L'Amour tonight from five to closing, reading a newspaper with two holes cut out of it, and he never saw Nora or the Italian race car driver she's dating. Robin wonders about the race car driver, and he flails, "Come on! You just know he's an Italian race car driver!" Robin says he's not. In fact, he doesn't exist. She made it up to see if Barney likes her, and he does, so she gives him Nora's number again. He tears it up. She says she also programmed it into his phone while he was in the bathroom, so he bashes his phone with a beer stein. She tells him that was a joke, since he just got here, but wow, is he ever smitten! Barney says he's totally not. Barney Stinson doesn't get smitten. He smites. Barney says he can't have a girlfriend. Getting serious with Nora would be like Mother Theresa focusing all her attention one really hot orphan. "With great penis comes great responsibility." So Robin asks him to throw her one. He says he'll do it, and she says she doesn't think so, because he doesn't want to screw things up with Nora. But, if so, she'll meet him the next night at her place. It's on!
Marshall arrives home, and Lily attacks him for sex now, foreplay after. But he stops her, because the presentation didn't go so well. Cut to the office. As soon as he says $12 million, Arthur cuts him off and tells him they already have a green initiative: He remembers something about a poster and meeting Sting. A lackey confirms he did, in fact, meet Sting. He wonders why they'd spend another $12 million. Arthur hates the idea and asks who here supports it. An employee named Meeker says he has some good points, and Arthur says he's fired. He's about to fire Marshall, but the lackey whispers to him that Marshall's father just died. So Arthur says he'll take the plan under advisement. Back at home, Marshall says he's upset, and Lily shows him the six-pack of tallboys she got him at the deli. He gazes at them while she kisses him, and then he asks her what happened to the plastic rings from the six-pack. She doesn't know, so he scolds her for not caring and then heads outside to dig the rings out of the trash.
