When Ted returns home from work that night, he waves to Robin, who is out on the front stoop, talking on her cell phone. Saget!Ted narrates that he walked into a lot of crazy stuff at the apartment over the years. And here comes a series of flashbacks. November 26, 2004: Lily tries to paint a portrait of two acrobats in a position I can't even describe. July 16, 2007: A chained-up Barney is submerged in a water tank a la Houdini, while Robin and Lily stand by with axes at the ready (Lily looks so natural with a weapon) and Marshall announces, "It's been 12 minutes!" Barney gives Ted an aquatic thumbs-up. December 15, 2006: Marshall and Lily huddle on the couch as Super Canadian Robin holds off two armed robbers with one of her trusty handguns. May 8, 2009: THE GOAT! Saget!Ted says, "But one of the craziest things I ever walked in on was when I lived with your Aunt Robin."
Robin's latest date, Mitch, is sitting stark naked on Ted's couch. Ew! Get it off. Get it off! Ted tries to remain composed as he tells Mitch that Robin should have used their secret signal to indicate she had company. "We put this old take-out menu on the doorknob. The place went out of business. Mr. Wang's. Guess I don't have to explain why that's funny." Ted can no longer bear the awkwardness of the situation and decides to leave. He pops his head back in the door. "When you leave? Take the seat cushion with you. That's trash now." Yeah, I'd just want a whole new couch, and really, who knows where else he sat? Let's refurnish the room, Ted.
