* Brilliant! It explains why Barney was against Ted's and Robin's relationship, while supporting Marshall's and Lily's: It's not that he didn't believe in love - he just didn't believe in Ted's and Robin's love.

love. It also explains why Ted told the kids that Barney makes up "historical" events, and always thinks the bad guy in movies is the good guy: Barney may have already told the kids his own side of the story and Ted wants to discredit him as a narrator.

She is sure that Robin is the only one who cares enough to scream so that she can hear.

After [[spoiler:her second husband]] Ted died without ever having kids, she realized he would be better off with [[spoiler:the girl from her first wedding]], which everyone wanted to set him up with. When she returned to her timeline, she realized that she was still Ted's widow. It turned out that destiny interfered and [[spoiler:killed the Mother]] so that Ted and Robin could still be together.

[[WMG: The Mother is Ted's lost half-sister.]]
[[spoiler:The similarities between them]], assuming they are unrelated, are unnatural. I always thought Ted was exaggerating [[spoiler:how compatible they were]], but what if he wasn't?

* Or Ted doesn't remember the first boyfriend's name, so he calls him "Tom" as well, perhaps hoping that the kids won't realize it's a different person.

* The episode actually seems to be a story within a story: what Kevin thinks happened based on what Robin, whom he didn't know before, tells him, or even what Ted thinks Kevin thought.



* Or this is what Ted wants his kids to think, as he doesn't want them to know why she didn't make it.

to:

* Or this is what Actually Zoey bought many of her paintings before knowing she was friends with Ted, and possibly before knowing Ted wants his kids to think, as he doesn't want them to know why well, so it's possible that she didn't make it.
was a controversial artist rather than a flat-out bad one.

[[WMG: Ted takes ideas from "Friends" and uses them to make his stories more interesting.]]
Virtually all sitcoms take ideas from "Friends", but at least this sitcom has an in-universe justification for that.

[[WMG: Robin worked with Barney and Patrice on "The Robin" play.]]
All these three really wanted to do was to get Ted's blessing for Barney's and Robin's engagement. Barney and Robin were actually dating all along! Robin wasn't trapped in Barney's closet - she just wanted Ted to come and witness Barney's and Patrice's "relationship." It makes far more sense than Barney lying to Robin for weeks as part of an incredibly fool-prone plan, and she agreeing to marry him seconds after discovering it.

** Jossed. Robin is surprised to find out she can't have children in Symphony of Illumination, surely someone who was born male would know that they can't get pregnant, as they would have no uterus, unless they where about as clueless as [[SouthPark Mrs Garrison]] or had blocked out a lot of memories.

** Titillandus has connotations of "tickle" far more than "poke", and is typically translated that way. There are also unrelated, nitpicky problems with the translation you chose. As for the original WMG, "don't poke the dragon!" or "don't poke a sleeping dragon!" has been around in certain wide-ranging, fantasy-fan circles for ''years'' before ''A Game Of Thrones'' was released, possibly as long as or longer than First Edition D&D has been around. That doesn't mean he didn't get it from ''ASongofIceAndFire'', and I'm pretty sure he does read the ''Literature/HarryPotter'' books, but my memory can't supply specific examples.
