After telling Robin that he loves her, things fall apart for she and Ted and he figures that it's all over for the two of them, but not for long as Ted finds out from Lily after she met Robin that she (Robin) likes him and Ted tries once again to win her affections, by throwing a party at his and Marshall's place, but it turns into 3 parties in 3 nights, when Robin was a no show for the first 2. Meanwhile, after Lily said yes to Marshall's marriage proposal, she has become extra affectionate to him in the bedroom and Marshall is worrying about finishing a huge paper to write for law school, that is due soon.
Did you know?
After the second party, Marshall said: "Alright, we threw two parties. Everybody had fun. Everybody wanged, everybody chunged". This is a reference to the 1986 song "Everybody Have Fun Tonight" by Wang Chung.
During the second party, Barney said: "Ah, you were so right about the roof. The roof! The roof is on fire!". This is a reference to the 1984 song "The Roof Is On Fire" by Rock Master Scott & the Dynamic Three.
Ted: You know it's so funny I ran into you. We're having a party next Friday if you'd like to swing by, but, you know, whatever.
Robin: Oh, I'm going back home next weekend. Too bad it's not tonight.
Ted: It is, it's tonight. This Friday. Did I say next Friday? Sorry, 'cause I've been saying next Friday all week. But yeah it's tonight; the party is tonight. But, you know, whatever.
Ted Mosby: [about Robin] She wants casual... OK. I'll be casual, I'm gonna be a mushroom cloud of casual! You know why? 'Cause it's a game. I wanted to skip to the end and do the whole "happily ever after" thing, but you can't do that UNLESS you play the game.
Marshall Eriksen: So, Gatsby, what are you going to do when Robin shows up?
Ted Mosby: OK, I got it all planned out. She steps through the door, and where's Ted? Not eagerly waiting by the door. No, I'm across the room at my drafting table, showing some foxy young thing all my cool architecture stuff. So Robin strolls over and I casually give her one of these "Hey, what's up?" She says "Hey, nice place, et cetera, et cetera ." And then I say "Well, make yourself at home" and I casually return to my conversation. Then, an hour later, "Oh, you're still here," I say, like I don't really care, but it's a nice surprise. And then, very casually, "Wanna see the roof?"
Marshall Eriksen: All right. We threw two parties. Everybody had fun. Everybody "wanged," everybody "chunged." Now The Kid has gotta get to work, and The Kid is not to be disturbed. Repeat after me: I will not have sex with Marshall.
Ted Mosby: [At the bar] Hey, don't you have a paper to write?
Marshall Eriksen: Dude, you're talking to The Kid. I'm gonna knock back this beer. I'm gonna knock back one more beer. I'm gonna go home. I'm gonna write a 25-page paper. I'm gonna hand it in and I'm gonna get an A. My name is Rufus and that's the Trufus.
Narrator: He got a B-, but still. 25 pages in one night? B-? The Kid was good.
"red-haired" in Latin. As a nickname it was used by William II Rufus, a king of England, because of his red hair. Now, Rufus is on the cutting edge of cool.
To tell the truth.
