Back in the present, Barney growls, "And call him, I will." Ted leans into Marshall and says, "He's going to say it again, really slow." Barney, still lost in his memories, says, "Call him... I will." Robin interrupts to note that Barney has listed a woman named Gaby Allen twice (#78 and 162). Barney freaks. This means he's "only" slept with 198 women, but he really wants Petra to be the 200th, so he's only got two hours to pick up another girl and get her into bed. He tries several of the MacLaren's patrons, but his desperation cramps his style and is a huge turn-off. He rushes back to the booth and faces Marshall. "Knowing how important this is to me, do you think Lily would even consider.... By the way, I would do all the work." Calmly, Marshall looks up from his beer. "I will end your life." Barney says, "Right," and flies out of MacLaren's looking for "lucky" 199. Commercial. I'm going to go take a shower.
Barney's been gone for over an hour. Robin and Ted sit at the booth, alone, perusing Barney's list. Robin says, "You know, looking over the names on this list, I'm not sensing a lot of ethnic diversity. He should really look at that in himself." I wonder how many (other) names end in -sky. [Also, I thought his preferred type was "Asian, with a little boob"? - Z] Just then, Barney limps in. He can hardly walk. He grabs the ice out of Ted's otherwise empty glass and places it on his crotch. Ted asks what happened, so Barney explains that there's this woman at his gym, Pauline, who's been hitting on him for some time. A weight lifter -- she's not his type -- but he was desperate. "Every inch of her tasted like roast beef and creatine. But I did it. I did it and I still have 30 minutes before I'm supposed to meet Petra. Robin, do you have any concealer handy? I'd really like to cover up some bruises. And razor burn."
