Rhonda's tacky-ass home. Barney, looking ragged, asks about some sex. "Let's sex," he tries. Rhonda's watching Wheel of Fortune. Barney offers to face her toward the TV. Rhonda explains that she's not the Manmaker anymore. Five years ago she discovered something much more fulfilling than meaningless sex: Indian casinos.
Later, at the bar, Barney is wandering around, wearing sweats. He moans that his entire sexual history was built on a rotting foundation of lies. Somebody call FEMA. He says his whole identity is lost in a pile of menthol ashes. Are you sure you want to go to the menthol joke well a second time? To lesser effect? Marshall enters, very sore. Barney claps him on the back and he grunts in pain. Marshall vows never to go back to the gym. He needs an assistant just to eat a bagel. Lily wants to give up the gym, too. It turns out her trainer had no affiliation with the gym whatsoever. Ted tries to rally the troops. He says that earlier that day, he and Robin had a really good moment. Side-whoosh to Robin bench pressing. She grunts and makes loud, manly noises as Ted watches in horror. She's awfully sweaty, too. Ted thanks her: she just destroyed any lingering sexual tension there might have been between them. Side-whoosh back to the bar. Robin complains that Ted hasn't even been working out. We whoosh to Ted on a treadmill, giving up before he even starts when his iPod runs out of battery. He heads home to charge it. We see Ted in another scene leaving the gym because he brought the wrong shorts. A third flashback shows Ted getting a massage instead of working out. Marshall wants help giving Ted the middle finger. Lily has a better idea. Cut to Ted doing squats while holding a big medicine ball while Trish yells at him, calling him a worthless piece of crap. Ted, sweaty, just wants to go home. Trish says it's his last set. "You said that last time!" Ted whimpers. Robin shows up. "Gone," she says, referring to Ted's sex appeal. Robin walks away, satisfied.
