** Finally, Marshall goes to meet The Calligrapher (Ted), who then teaches Marshall to be accurate… wr at least, he would have, if Marshall wasn't so immensely strong he ''slapped The Calligrapher's heart out of his body.'' Except… when a heart is slapped out of somebody's body, they stay alive for ten minutes, which allows Marshall to master The Slap Of A Million Burning Suns.

** That entire episode is a giant CrowningMomentOfAwesome for Ted. For context - Ted gets a girl's number at the bar, and Barney and Marshall tell him that he should wait 3 days before calling because 'that's the rule'. Ted figures that texting doesn't count, and soon he ends up having rather naughty and deep text message conversations with this girl all night. [[spoiler:It turns out it's Marshall and Barney playing a prank, having replaced the girls' number with Barney's to bust Ted for calling too soon, but decides to mess with him with texts instead. When Ted finds out, he plans the most epic revenge ever seen on a sitcom - he texts "Holly" that he sometimes has gay dreams about his Best Friend, causing Marshall and Barney to argue over who is the hottest. He then shows up at the bar and says he had an 'odd dream', and they want him to talk about it to find out who he was dreaming about - and he then proceeds to [[CrowningMomentOfFunny "waste half an hour of those bastards' lives"]] telling them an incredibly nerdy and annoying bullshit dream about having dinner with famous historical architects, exposes them as pranksters and introduce them to to Holly whom he had contacted at work, thus simultaneously getting his revenge on the guys AND proving that the 3-day rule is bunk! ...that is, until we realize the girl is a complete nutjob, but hey!]]

[[spoiler: Unfortunately, the judge only awards compensation of $25,000 from a multi-billion dollar corporation, but this only inspires Marshall to become a judge, since they're the ones with the power to affect real change.]]
** Lily recounts her teenage years when the others brag about how hardcore they were: a goth BadAss carrying a [[BatterUp baseball bat]] who took in geeks and forced them to [[TookALevelInBadass take a level in badass]] while beating cops and when she walked down the street everybody ran. Hers was the only story to be true and as an adult walking down the same street everyone remembers her and bolts.
