Ted and Stella meet up with Marshall, Lily and Barney at MacLaren's. Ted pulls up a chair for Stella and sits next to Barney. Lily asks them how things are going, and before Stella even sits, she grabs Barney's drink and downs it. They just had dinner with Stella's sister Nora, and her fiancé, who are getting married, first. "Okay, you know how you've dreamt about your perfect wedding day ever since you were a little girl?" Lily says, "Yeah." Marshall says, "Totally." He's so darling I can't stand it (although, he could stand a haircut and I expected he'd get one by now). Stella's sister is stealing her dream wedding down to every last detail: on Shelter Island; at sunset...

Sideways slide to dinner. Nora says, "Just down the beach from our family's old summer house. It's my dream wedding." As in all too many weddings, Nora's fiancé seems to be just another prop, because we never learn his name or see his face, just the left rear of his head, his left shoulder and arm, and a little bit of his back, so let's call him Lefty. Ted says, "Hmmm," to Nora's plans, while Stella grabs his wine and downs it. Are we detecting a pattern? Ted changes the subject to the menu, saying the lamb at the restaurant is supposed to be great. Nora says, "I'm a vegan. I wish I could tune out that moral voice inside me that says eating animals is murder, but I guess I'm just not as strong as you are." Ted purses his lips. "That's 'cause you need protein." I'm writing that one down. He promptly orders the lamb and gives Nora his best fake smile. I didn't know he had that in him. Go, Ted. No, I mean run. PETA's on your tail.

Sideways flash to MacLaren's. Ted says, "New goal. I want our wedding to kick her wedding's ass. I want our wedding to take her wedding's head, shove it in the toilet and flush it like 20 times." Stella gives him a warm look, while Lily asks if he was Nora's wedding in high school, and hello? I've been trying to follow that logic for 24 hours now, but it's not there, because Nora's wedding doesn't get swirlies; it gives them. Ted was... Ted's wedding in high school. Now my head hurts. I need a drink, but Stella's already finished them all. [I think Lily is saying that Nora's wedding will receive a swirlie, therefore making Ted the... oh, never mind. - Zach] Stella says Nora is always trying to one-up her. She loves her sister, but there's a little part of her that wishes the whole thing would fall apart. Wish granted. Stella and Barney create a new magic act and take it on the road. Ted burns his copy of the Bro Code in retaliation, or... We jump to the same restaurant...
