We side-whoosh across a truly ugly van painted with a dude with giant wings and a sun and...my God, I can't look at it any longer. My eyes will hate me if I continue staring. We see Teen Robin pushing some audio equipment toward the back of the van. In a very exaggerated Canadian accent, Robin tells Simon that it was such a good show and that they rocked. He agrees in an equally silly accent. He says they're just a few gigs away from exploding. Teen Robin starts loading equipment into the van, without Simon's help. He says they're gonna be big: "Like Crash Test Dummies big!" That's huge! Simon takes her hand. "Listen, babe," he tells her, "it's over." D'oh! He says he's getting back together with Louise Marsh. Lily, back at the bar, says that's a whore's name. Marshall can't believe he'd want to get with Louise Marsh. Nobody knows Louise Marsh. Back in the past, Simon says that Louise's parents just put in a pool. Teen Robin says she totally gets it. She says pools are great and swimming is awesome. She says they have a sprinkler. They run right through it. She tries to leave. Simon calls her back, making her hopeful. "You forgot to load the drum set," he tells her. Back at the bar, everyone begs Robin to tell them she didn't load the drum set. She did. Marshall asks why Robin would want to see this guy again. Lily figured it out: Robin wants to win. Robin pretends not to know what she's talking about. Ted has to explain that when you haven't seen someone in a long time, there's always a clear winner and a clear loser. Robin says they should add up points. Barney points out Robin's two big points in her dress. Robin says Simon still lives with his mom and his band never took off. Two points for Robin. Robin says Simon works at a water park outside of Ottawa. Marshall thinks that is a point for Simon, but he is mistaken after Ted determines that they have no wave pool. That's five points for Robin. She says there's no way he can win with that unless somehow he got hotter. Simon walks in. SagetTed says there was a clear winner and a clear loser. Simon is wearing baggy brown pants, a fugly "Chicago" shirt, a dumpy lavender flannel shirt over that, and a bored expression. We pan up to see stubble and a huge, balding pate. Everyone looks at him with disdain...except Robin. "Hey, babe," Simon says. Robin giggles horribly: "Oh my God!" she says. Oh my God!
