Robin's friends continue to ruthlessly mock her (as they must), but Ted assures her that when he was sixteen, he would have been crazy about her.

She likes how well he knows her. Everyone in the room "awww"s. Just as they're all basking in this warm moment, Marshall whacks Barney on the cheek. "That's one," Marshall says.
