Plot Summary: Everyone has baggage, Ted learns. He’s dating a new girl, and is trying to figure out what her baggage is. They go to a movie that is loosely based on Ted’s life, starring an architect named Jed Moseley, written by Stella’s ex-boyfriend. The movie portrays Jed/Ted to be a big douche. But the movie makes Ted realize that he has baggage, too.
What we Learn about the Mother: She’s gotta be ok with a dude with baggage.
Ted complains about how Tony’s movie got he and Stella’s relationship all wrong. He goes around describing all the sweet things he did for Stella. Lily replies to each one: That was soooo sweet. Marshall chimes in: Realllllly romantic! Robin says: Aaaaaaand a little cheesy.
Top 3 Quotes:
1) When discussing how everyone has baggage, Marshall says: I don’t have baggage. Ted replies: Mother issues. Robin says: Grandmother issues. Barney says: Great grandmother issues. Marshall replies: I just don’t like it when she picks me up.
2) Lily describes Marshall’s baggage, being too nice: He’s from Minnesooooota. His high school mascot was a hug.
3) Ted describes the movie to the gang after he sees it with the new girl. Marshall is really into his description. As Ted describes the end, Marshall exclaims: Whoah! Spoilers! [Pause] is what I would say if I ever planned on seeing such a horrible film.
This was a lame episode. HIMYM has been off and on recently.
