* In "Unpause," Ted and Robin get Barney to the level of drunkenness where he can't lie. They ask him to finally tell them what his job is. Whenever they asked him before he always answered with just "Please." It turns out that '''is''' his job! "Please" is a FunWithAcronyms for [[spoiler: Provide Legal Exculpation and Sign Everything. It's a job where he spends all day signing papers claiming responsibility for the illegal activities of a corporation. He was hired in 1998 by Greg, a CorruptCorporateExecutive who was also the slick asshole who stole Barney's girlfriend back when he was a hippie. After Barney had his EvilMakeover the guy didn't recognize him. Ted and Robin are alarmed by this and tell Barney he could get in trouble but he lets them in on his "master plan". Future Ted tells his kids that two months after his wedding, Barney went to his boss' office and reveals that the 16 years he spent working there was all part of his BestServedCold revenge against him for stealing his girlfriend and that he's been working with the Feds giving them evidence. As FBI agents arrive, putting Greg in handcuffs, Barney flashes the V sign, says "Peace out loser", straightens his tie in a mirror and leaves, all while "Barney Stinson: That Guy's Awesome" plays on the soundtrack!]]

** 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. Meanwhile, the gang looks bemused as it dawns on them that Lily wasn't bullshitting.

** Gus's improvised rap to bail Marshall out of finding a rhyme for "Canada". Creator/LinManuelMiranda gets to showcase his fantastic rap skills, and in-universe, it's a pretty impressive verse for him taking it off the top of his head.

** To elaborate: Marshal and Lily are afraid that all their old traditions, the things that made them special as a couple, are falling by the wayside, there lunchtime calls to say "I love you", telling each other all the things they had to eat that day when they got home, kissing on New Years as the ball drops, and when one of them goes out of town bringing back beer from the place they where visiting, the other coming to greet them at the airport with a chauffeur's hat and a sign with their name on it. When Lily is coming back from Seattle, Marshall spends most of the episode agonizing about weather to go to the airport or not and greet her with the hat and sign. Finally he goes, only to discover her flight was delayed, and she called him at lunchtime to tell him, but he didn't pick up. He then thinks that this was a sign from the universe, and resolves not to go. Lily arrives three days later, and realizes she wants to continue their tradition after all, so she rushes out to grab Seattle beer from the nearest liqueur store and back to the airport where she waits for Marshal hoping he would have the same faith. He's not there however, so she sits down at a nearby bench, ready to cry...[[GrandRomanitcGesture only for the man next to her to start playing his flute, triggering people to stand up all over the airport playing trumpets, horns, and drums, followed by Marshal walking in, hat, cardboard sign and all, walking straight for Lily.]]
--> Marshal: "A muffin, as pastrami sandwich, and a bag of chips and I know it's way past lunchtime but I love you. More and more each day I love you Lily. [[ReunionKiss Happy New Years.]]" ''[They kiss]''

* The last slap. Slapsgiving Three. It actually has a backstory to it, in that Marshall went to Shang Hai to learn the Slap Of A Million Burning Suns.

** 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.
