Added DiffLines:

* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: Lily delivers one to Jenkins.

Added DiffLines:

* HonorBeforeReason: Ted and the students know Robin is baiting them when she's saying "But, um..." rapidly. But they drink because "it's the rules." They all have a mssive hangover the next day as a result.


Added DiffLines:

* TooDumbToLive: Ted and the students could have avoided drinking when Robin began using "But, um..." more, but blindly follow the rules of the drinking game instead.

Added DiffLines:

* OutOfFocus: Barney's role is reduced in this episode due to Creator/NeilPatrickHarris directing.

Added DiffLines:

* BrokenRecord: Invoked by Robin to kill the drinking game.
-->'''Robin''': If there are any college students watching: butum-butum-butum-butum-butum-butum-butum-butum...
* HoldMyGlasses: While Jenkins is apologizing for kissing Marshall, Lily calmly starts handing her purse, scarf and earrings to Barney to prepare for beating the tar out of Jenkins.
* IncrediblyLamePun: When Ted's students invite him to play the Robin Scherbatsky Drinking Game with them.
--> '''Ted''': Well, what can I say, but... "but-ums" up! ''[[[{{Beat}} long silence]]]'' Can I still come?

Added DiffLines:

* LastNameBasis: Jenkins's first name is never revealed.
* PronounTrouble: Played for laughs. Marshall neglects to mention Jenkins's sex/gender when he first tells Lily stories of Jenkins's exploits, so when she thinks Jenkins is a man, he avoids referring to her with pronouns to keep up the illusion.
* ToplessnessFromTheBack: Both the male and female versions of Jenkins.

Added DiffLines:

Marshall is annoyed when Lily doesn't believe that his female coworker, Jenkins, kissed him. Meanwhile, Ted's college kids introduce him to a drinking game they've invented out of Robin's pre-morning news show.

----
!!This episode provides examples of:

* BewareTheNiceOnes: When Jenkins tells Lily about kissing Marshall (confirming that it actually ''did'' happen), Lily snaps and beats the crap out of her.
* VerbalTic: Robin's tendency to say "But, um..." while conducting interviews becomes the center of a college drinking game.
