Robin's boyfriend Bob arrives at the bar. She tells everyone that he's a little bit older: 41. SagetTed says that Bob probably looked like this: in walks in a gray-haired but very hearty guy who greets Robin. SagetTed says that when you're broken up, you tend to exaggerate flaws. He says that he saw Bob like this: a very old man comes to the booth and says, "Hey dudes, what's crackin'?" Your hip, maybe? Bob talks about just getting off the phone with his parents, who are trying to get him to sort out his life. "Parents?" Ted asks, incredulously. Bob says he told them to "chillax" and that snowboarding is a legitimate career. I feel bad for Bob because this running gag is already gasping for breath. Live, damn you! Bob gives Robin a big kiss. They go to get a drink. Ted can't believe Robin's dating Orville Redenbacher. No one else see what Ted is talking about. Ted says he's 150 and Robin is 27. Even Barney won't bite. Lily says they're making pies at Robin's because Marshall can't be trusted overnight with an apartment full of pies. He makes the case for delicious sleep-eating. Ted asks what time they're going so he doesn't end up at Robin's alone with her.
We cut to Robin's apartment. Ted shows up way late, at 9:30, but nobody else is there. Ted asks where Marshall and Lily are. Cut to Lily working in fast-motion in her kitchen while Marshall sits on the couch watching TV and exercising his slapping hand. Side-whoosh back to Robin telling Ted that Bob is out seeing Green Day. Awkward pre-pie-making conversation. They have nothing to talk about. Ted calls Barney and tries to get him to come over. Barney, at the bar, agrees. Turns out he's just making up an elaborate story about saving a soldier's life for a girl he's trying to impress. Ted figures it out. He asks if Barney is coming over to make pies. "No, no. Thank YOU, Mr. President," Barney says.
