Marshall and Lily are talking on one side of the magical whispering room. She wonders about their dream to save the world, and he says that was a great dream, but now they have a mortgage and are trying to have kids. They're grown-ups now. She wonders what College Him would say if he could hear him right now, and Marshall says, "Honestly? Probably something pretentious." Marshall says they all change: She no longer spells "women" with a Y, and he's okay with that (I'm guessing he's pretty thrilled about that, honestly, because there is no excuse for poor spelling), and he needs her to be okay with him never becoming an environmental lawyer. She asks how long he's felt this way, and he admits it's been ever since his first day at GNB. Ted whispers from across the room at various inopportune moments of this conversation (so I guess he can't hear them back?): "wieners" then "wieners and gonads" then "boogers" then "Hershey squirts." Lily walks off, upset at Marshall (I think, though it could just as easily be at Ted).
Robin and Barney grab some hors d'oeuvres while she's holding a stuffed penguin. Then Ted finds Zoey again somewhere, and makes fun of the guy she's talking to, who's wearing a monocle. He asks if this is for real, so she drags him away. On his way out, he wishes Monocle good luck killing James Bond. She takes him to a room filled with bugs and spiders on the walls behind them. And even though they're likely fake, and are in my TV, I have an extremely hard time looking at the TV while this scene is on. Luckily, it's more talking than action, so I don't need to see much. He wants her to leave him the hell alone so he can have crossword day back and she can go back to her perfect life. She says her life isn't perfect and he's mean, so she cries. He scoffs: "Like that's going to get my sympathy." Saget!Ted: "It did."
Marshall's followed Lily into a less crowded, less whispery place, where she points out that every time she's asked him if he wanted to work for NRDC since he's worked at GNB, he's lied. He says that's not technically true. She's asked him questions, and he has responded with made-up words. Side flash to her asking him about it, and him saying "Affirmatootly" and then "Yepskerdoodles." He makes up a long word I can in no way write that starts out with "Positi..." when she asks if he likes her scarf. Ha. Back at the museum, he says, "Lawyered." She's annoyed, because that's also a made-up word. He asks what she wants from him, and she says she wants him to be the person she fell in love with. She walks away from him, both looking sad.
