Side-whoosh to MacLaren's. Robin says, "College. Good times." Blah Blah takes it as an insult since she didn't go to college. Damn, girl! Barney claps for the impending crazy action. Blah Blah says that while Robin was in college majoring in being "Freakin' beautiful," she was starting a business making handbags. She holds one up. It's quite a lot of peace sign. I think you could fit a bunch of actual hands in there. Barney says that's crazy! Blah Blah says she sells them in Japan. She asks if Robin has ever sold anything in Japan. I bet "Let's Go To The Mall" was huge in Japan! Robin doesn't own up to it. Robin offers to buy a handbag. Blah Blah says she doesn't have a distributor in the U.S. and thinks Robin's just rubbing it in. She asks why Robin is trying to undermine her in front of Ted. Barney is incredibly amused. Robin says that there's nothing going on between her and Ted and that Blah Blah has nothing to worry about. Blah Blah keeps turning the statements around on Robin. Blah Blah says that Robin is making all of them feel really uncomfortable. Ha! Ted asks Barney to please tell the story of how they met. Barney agrees to tell his story because it's "crazy!" and Blah Blah will love it.
Side-whoosh to the MacLaren's bathroom in 2001. Ted, rocking a Dante from Clerks goatee, is peeing next to Barney at the urinals. Barney, holding one arm up, says tonight is the first night he's taking out his deaf brother since his mom died. Ted says he's sorry about that. Barney says he has to take care of him now. Barney goes on with that line of bullshit. Then he's proud of himself that Ted bought the story he just made up while peeing. Barney believes it has to work on a hot blonde sitting at the end of the bar. Barney asks if Ted might be a total idiot. Ted says he's still having this conversation, so... Barney tells him that was "well-played," and exits the bathroom. Right at the door, he says, "I like you, Ted."
