Or the mother would be dead.
In the season finale, Marshall and Lily start making plans. Baby plans.
Without his knowledge, Ted gets the Hollywood treatment.
Robots! Wrestling! Arianna Huffington!
In last night's episode, something actually happened!
Ted buys a house in the suburbs.
Marshall gets mugged, but blames it on a monkey for Lily's sake.
Ted ruins Lily's birthday.
Carrie Underwood joined the crew for some dating drama.
"My college teammates did catch the man-on-man kiss on 'Big Love,' but when I appeared naked on 'HIMYM,' that was by far the bigger splash."
Also, lots of talk about ducks.
Barney goes for the "perfect week" while the gang cheers him on out of sadness.
Sadly, probably not.
'HIMYM' has been renewed for a sixth season.
This one is set in Pittsburgh.
Barney ceded the spotlight last night, and counterintuitively, it totally worked.

"It's a little bit like, Um, guys, am I really going to sleep my way through the entire cast or what.'"
While Robin tangles with her new co-worker/future-love-interest, the gang tries to quit smoking.
And he's promising "big shake-ups"!
While Ted goes after the girl of his dreams (again), Marshall comes to terms with growing up (again).
The only thing that's missing is a Slap Bet.
He even plays a character with three letters in his name again.
Slaps, turkey, fake bile, and more!
