*** So basically, the title being Vesuvius [[{{Foreshadowing}} doesn't fit?]]

* NonIndicativeTitle: [[spoiler:In "How Your Mother Met Me", the Mother doesn't actually meet Ted, although she does see him at least twice; once when he started teaching class in the wrong room (and she laughed at his "shellfish" joke), and a few moments later when she was about to turn and head back to the right classroom, he came rushing by, heading for his real class.]]

Vesuvius is the name of the active volcano best known for its eruption in 79 A. D. that destroyed the city Pompeii. But the volcano is never mentioned once, not even obliquely, in this episode. No one gets angry enough to have an outburst that could qualify as an "eruption", the two main events of the episode [[spoiler:the first ever appearance of Robin's mother and the hint at the end foreshadowing Tracy's death]] don't seem to have anything to do with the volcano. There's simply no obvious reason why this episode was called "Vesuvius".

They weren't calling him out, they were helping him realize this. He wasn't directly asking permission, it was a subconcious thing.
* CallingTheOldManOut: Penny and Luke [[spoiler: call Ted out on the long, convoluted tale about meeting the Mother when it was mostly about Robin. They know he's just asking permission from his kids if he can date again.]]

* BittersweetEnding: The series finale itself [[spoiler:where Barney and Robin divorced after three years of marriage. Tracy (the titular Mother) died six years before the "present" when Ted is telling his kids the story. But the kids realized that the story is more of ruse from their dad, asking permission to date "Aunt Robin" which they permitted him to do. And the story ends with Ted, holding the blue French horn and standing outside Robin's apartment, implying that they do end up]].

It should also be added that Ted was still talking about how he met the mother, but I can't think how to put that in. It is clear to me that he wasn't intentionally asking them permission for anything
** As the finale shows, [[spoiler:The entire show was one big example. The Mother had died of unspecified illness 6 years before the start, and Ted's story was a way to ask his kids if it was okay for them if he started to date their Aunt Robin.]]

** In "Last Forever", Barney tells a woman "You are the love of my life. Everything I have, everything I am, is yours. Forever." Only he doesn't mean it and was simply making a point to Ted that he wasn't going to settle down. Later he says the same line to [[spoiler:his newborn daughter]], only this time he means it.
