Marshall's getting a call on his other line from a number he doesn't recognize. Robin tells him not to answer it, but then makes fun when she realizes he has to because of his Minnesota politeness. So he does, all "Eriksen residence. Marshall speaking." It's Barney, who has a new number because too many crazies have his old number. He's all about disposable cell phones now. He uses one, has fun, then dumps it and gets a new one. Then he does the same with the cell phone. Then Barney says Robin doesn't know how to tell a story, so he'll tell Marshall what really happened with Zoey and Ted. Back at MacLaren's, only this time Honey's all about Barney and completely ignoring Ted. Barney says Ted tried to impress her, but "bored the pants very much on her." Cut to MacLaren's, where Ted says, "Blah, blah, blah, I'm an architect. Blah, blah, I don't wear suits. Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah... Rambling architecture anecdote, blah, blah. Something about a bridge. Blah." All the while, Honey and Barney make eyes at each other.
Barney tells Marshall he gets Honey back to her place, and then we're there. Marshall would like to skip this part, so Barney says he'll summarize. He makes squeaking bed noises that start out slow, get faster and then slow down. Marshall finally says, "Okay. That's been going on awhile." Barney: "Only way I know how." The next day, as Barney tells it, he runs into Zoey, and is all, "Yowza!" about her cousin. He makes the bed noises for her, too, and she is so happy to hear Honey didn't go home with Ted that she actually hugs Barney. And if you can hug a guy who just made bed noises, there's something up, right? Barney asks Marshall what the hug was all about, and Marcus pipes up: "Zoey's in love with Ted!" Marshall wants him to hang up, but he hears him out first: Marcus says that Zoey tried to push Ted away with her cousin because she's married and in love with him. Marshall realizes Zoey is in love with Ted. Then Marcus tells Marshall he stopped by that new donut shop, Hertz Donuts, and asks him if he wants a Hertz Donut. Marshall does, so Marcus runs right in and hits Marshall, then asks, "Hurts, don't it?" Barney: "I can't believe you fell for that, bro." Marshall tells Barney that this mutual love isn't going to work and he has to call Ted.
