Ted's room. Robin whines that they can't be together. Ted says they aren't really friends. They avoid each other, smile politely. He says they only pretend to be friends because it's convenient. Robin wonders if they should stop pretending. "Maybe we should," Ted says. They agree to go eat dinner, then that's it. They're both sad. Robin leaves. "Happy Thanksgiving," Ted says.
Dinner, later. Everyone is sitting together. Barney asks if Marshall's "Slappetite" was ruined. He thinks Lily might want to say a few words. "Nope. This sucks. Eat up and leave," she says. Marshall stands to give a toast. He says Lily did something great by starting a new tradition. Marshall says they're going to do this every year, maybe for the rest of their lives. Ted and Robin exchange looks. They're trapped! Everybody toasts. "This is rad!" Bob says. He talks about his family and how with 10 kids, his family is always chaotic at Thanksgiving. He says it's a major buzzkill. "Major Buzzkill!" Ted and Robin announce. Everyone thought they were done with that. Apparently they aren't, Ted and Robin agree.
